I got these from a co worker and she told me they tasted like Girl Scout Cookies so I tryed them. I am do have to say they taste as close to the Girl Scout cookies as you can get. Prep times includes the chilling.
From Food Network's "All-Star Holiday Cookies" special (2007). These are from Robin Miller. I have to say, I goofed on my first batch. I didn't read the recipe all the way through and didn't melt the chocolate for dipping the cookies as instructed. I actually stirred the chips into the dough and they still tasted great...so do what you will. The dipping process would probably make them prettier. They must be kept air tight so they stay fresh. You may also substitute real sugar cookie dough. You may also use real cherries or candied cherries. I just used cherry-flavored Craisins. Enjoy!
You'll find these bars at Starbucks during special holidays. The texture is like a chewy brownie, but the flavors include white chocolate, zesty orange, and cranberry, finished with a cream cheese frosting. NOTES - this recipe uses a 10x15 pan. One of the photos shows you how to make the right cuts to create signature triangle shapes.
Nov. 2013 note - the bars bought from Starbucks have gone down-hill this year with icing that is flavorless and no real ginger flavor to the bars. Skip Starbucks and make your own!
For Valentine's Day, I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter and tinted the icing pink. They were beautiful!
Why bother with store-bought purchased expensive Dijon mustard when you can make it yourself and it tastes just as good if not better, I know I make it all the time! --- plan well ahead this mustard needs to marinate in the fridge for 2 weeks before using the longer you leave it in the fridge the better it will be!
I found this at a Creme de Menthe sight! Quick and easy! Great for St. Patty's Day! If you use white creme de menthe Just add green food coloring. But I make them during Christmas!The picture shows them rolled in 1/2 cup pwdered sugar and 1 tablespoon cocoa.
This is a recipe my mother used to make when I was growing up. She used to make these a few days before Purim, and I could never resist having one or two until then. Now that I'm all grown up me and my mother do it together.
These taste like the real smokehouse almonds you buy in the store for a huge price. I made these last Christmas for a bazaar and just found the recipe again. They are good even in the middle of summer. I have also used a combination of mixed nuts and they are still good.
