These balls are so quick and easy to make. They make a nice addition to the baked goodies that you give as gifts. Make these about a week before you want to serve them as they mellow and the sharp strong alcohol taste blends in more with the other ingredients. Store in a tin with a tight lid. This year I couldn't find the Vanilla wafers so I used chocolate and I like them even more. To form the balls I use two teaspoons as the dough is quite moist. I store them in the freezer - they don't go hard and they are so good ice cold
From Gourmet, October 2004. These are just wonderful. Some recommend adding a second teaspoon of fleur de sel at the very end "as the caramel is cooling so the crystals don't completely dissolve, providing the occasional salty crunch in the final product." Others recommend adding a teaspoon and a half of vanilla or a couple of tablespoons of dark rum. Or, someone suggested dipping in dark chocolate and sprinkling with fleur de sel. Very versatile. Perfect for holiday gifts. Cooking time includes two hours of cooling.
I know, I know... I thought the same thing. *lol*
Domestic Blue cheese gives cookies a clean flavor, color and texture. Use less flour with a Stilton-style cheese and more flour with a French-style Roquefort.
I made these for a Christmas party and they were so pretty on the holiday tray. I love the combination of white chocolate and raspberries. I am posting the recipe as I found it and am not sure of the number of cookies this will produce as written. I made these much smaller than the recipe states so I am estimating the yield.
At Christmas time we love to serve our visitors these tiny Christmas cakes, baked in muffin tins. They're easy to make, dark, moist and full of flavour. Start this recipe at least one day ahead as the fruit needs to soak overnight. Preparation time does not include this step.
Great recipe my mom got at her office! It's an easy way to get the delicious taste of a buckeye with a little less work. I usually keep these in the fridge to keep them from getting too soft or melted.
My Great Grandmother brought this recipe with her from Scotland to Boston, MA in 1903. I learned how to make it from my Grandmother. To this day, we would not be caught without having this on hand during the Holidays. This recipe is not for the faint at heart. It is a labor of love. The hand kneading process can take up to 20 minutes (really) due to the ingredient ratios. The true keys to the success of this simple, rustic recipe are that the butter needs to be at room temperature (limp) and that you need to use the warmth of your hands to get the entire ball to a glistening stage. The flour needs to melt into the butter and sugar. You need to work it to the point that when cut in half, the interior of the ball glistens like the exterior. I know it sounds like a lot of work but the end results are well worth it. Put on some holiday music and share the process with people you love. Pass the ball around and take turns kneading it. Make some special Holiday memories with your family. I hope you enjoy making, eating and giving this shortbread as a small gift as much as we do... Enjoy!
A melt in your mouth mixture of dark chocolate,Scottish shortbread,and whisky, this is the easiest truffle recipe I've ever made...the Drambuie is subtle so if you prefer a strong taste of it, double the measurement.Chocolate should be 55-70% cocoa solids.
This recipe is from "Scot's Cooking" by Sue Lawrence.
A FAMILY FAVORITE that is requested by my relatives each winter. They are pretty in gift boxes and are easy to make. Nothing is better than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter! Yield depends on size of ball you make.
My son-in-law to be wanted this for x-mas cookies and it's been requested since. And now my son fights him for it.
Option as in picture I posted-After baking brownies sprinkle cooked hot brownies with mint chips let melt then spread to make a even layer. Cool then slice.
