Creamy. Soft. Peanut Buttery. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe nearly 30 years ago, and my family and friends have insisted that I make multiple batches of it during the Holidays ever since. They’ve been known to monitor the amount they each receive in goodie packages, and to actually fight over it. I usually omit the nuts, so that the creamy, melt in your mouth texture isn’t hindered.
I made the most wonderful Baklava on ethnic night in gourmet class. I hadn't made it in a while and started craving it when I saw this little shortcut in a magazine at the doctor's office. (The best part about the wait is scanning the magazine rack!) Also, if you want to get even more fancy and creative, top with a dollop of Nutella or chocolate fudge, or even an chocolate mint bar.
These were our favourite after-school treat in the 1960's - lovingly made by our grandma. Just three simple ingredients and hardly any preparation. Not only do these luscious treats look like beehives - you'd swear they had honey in them. After keeping for a while they might weep a little sticky liquid through the bottom - but don't worry, this makes them taste even yummier.
I "borrowed" this recipe from the kitchen at my college because I fell in love with these bars. They are so much better than store-bought, and you can add or subtract ingredients as you wish. They make a perfect on-the-go snack; a much healthier alternative to chips or cookies, especially for kids (Great for lunch boxes!)
This is a perfect recipe for people who have never used phyllo. Some people make it sound as though if you break a sheet the whole dish is broken. Sheets can be broken and it's still "all good" and elegant.
I was watching Emeril last night and he made this dessert. It looked so easy and yet made such a beautiful presentation. I haven't made yet, as I think this will require a party to go to! Don't need this much chocolate in the house by myself!
You'll want to make a double batch of these truffles. SOOOoooo easy and soooo good.I store them in the freezer and find they are still good after a couple of monthe but the original recipe said store in fridge and for up to a week. I reccommend that you use "Slide" no stick foil
This is a nice, different side dish to poultry. I usually serve at Christmas... the addition of the red hot candies give it a nice festive cinnamon flavor! Kids love it. I've substituted with Cranberry, always go back to Cherry. The flavors compliment each other well.
