These were a big hit for christmas. I don't recall how many they made I'm thinking 40. These are moist little morsels of nuts flavored with apple and buttershots liqueur. These are better as they sit in an air tight container.
These flaky little crescents were passed on to me from my grandmother.
Flour can vary add more or less depending on moisture in the air. Powdered Sugar is used for rolling. The amount can vary because you can roll as big (producing less in amount)or little (produced many little tasty treats)circles as you want.
The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
A Christmas MUST!!!!! These really need to be made with solo almond fillng not almond paste. I made bought ways and the paste is no way as tender as made with the solo fillng. http://www.solofoods.com/cprod.html
This bark is so yummy flavored with orange zest and candied ginger use store bought or Recipe #102933.This is a good way to use left over melted chocolate. 2009 I added 2 ounces of caramel squares that I diced to the semi sweet chocolate. Toffee added to the white chocolate in 2009 as well. As you see this is a very flexible recipe. Swirling is key for the bark look. Taste is all up to you!
Posted by request, these pretty little cookies are very often served at holiday gatherings in many Italian American families. You may shape them any way you prefer, and change the flavoring of the icing slightly to suit your tastes. The original recipe came from one of my favorite community style cookbooks called "Preserving Our Italian Heritage" compiled by the Sons of Italy Florida Foundation. I combined several variations submitted by 5 different ladies, all of whom used the same basic cookie recipe but used slightly different methods in shaping and icing the cookies. The yield will vary depending upon how you shape your cookies.
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.
This is quick and easy! Chilling makes handling these easier. Option for a lemon glazed cookie--all you have to do is in place of the water use the frozen lemon concentrate for a real tart cookie and/or use lemon cake mix. Then mix a bunch of powdered sugar with the frozen lemon contentrate thats at room temperature for a nice tart icing!
