    From the Cook's Illustrated Website: It is important to work the dough as little as possible—work quickly and knead and fold the dough only the number of times called for. The butter should be frozen solid before grating. In hot or humid environments, chill the flour mixture and workbowls before use. While the recipe calls for 2 whole sticks of butter, only 10 tablespoons are actually used (see step 1). If fresh berries are unavailable, an equal amount of frozen berries (do not defrost) can be substituted. An equal amount of raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries can be used in place of the blueberries. Cut larger berries into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces before incorporating. Refrigerate or freeze leftover scones, wrapped in foil, in an airtight container. To serve, remove foil and place scones on a baking sheet in a 375-degree oven. Heat until warmed through and recrisped, 8 to 10 minutes if refrigerated, 16 to 20 minutes if frozen. See final step for information on making the scone dough in advance.

    Recipe #318620

    This batter serves four perfectly for a light weekday breakfast. You may want to double the recipe for weekend pancake making, when appetites are larger. If you happen to be using salted butter or buttermilk, you may want to cut back a bit on the salt. If you don’t have any buttermilk, mix three-quarters cup of room temperature milk with one tablespoon of lemon juice and let it stand for five minutes. Substitute this “clabbered milk” for the three-quarters cup of buttermilk and one-quarter cup of milk in this recipe. Since this milk mixture is not as thick as buttermilk, the batter and resulting pancakes will not be as thick.

    Recipe #344774

    From Cook's Illustrated Online. If using regular yellow onion, add an extra 1/2 tsp sugar. Can be held in an airtight container 24 hrs in the refrigerator.

    Recipe #344444

    This recipe is from a Cook's Illustrated magazine a few years ago. This is my absolute favorite chicken recipe. The flavor is wonderful and delicious. This recipe is for kabobs, but I have also used the marinade for whole chicken breasts, which also turn out wonderful.

    Recipe #420125

    From the Cook's Illustrated Website: Any of the buttercream frostings can be made ahead and refrigerated; if refrigerated, however, they must stand at room temperature to soften before use. If using a hand-held mixer, increase mixing times significantly (at least 50 percent). This recipe can be doubled to make enough for a two-layer cake. Makes 1 1/2 cups, enough for 12 cupcakes.

    Recipe #318622

    Cook's Illustrated came up with the best chocolate chip cookies and they also came up with the best light version. From The Best Light Recipe. I am saving it here so I don't loose it.

    This is a smooth and silky hummus from those people on PBS who know how to test and create great recipes. They recommend Joyva or Krinos tahini and Pastene chickpeas (I used what I had on hand). Hummus can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 5 days. If you do not plan on serving it immediately, refrigerate the hummus and garnishes separately. When ready to serve, stir in approximately 1 tablespoon of warm water if the texture is too thick. Serving size is estimated.

    Recipe #380146

    This is a very good falafel recipe if you can remember to soak the chickpeas in advance.

    Recipe #389758

    From this month's Cook's Illustrated Magazine (January 2009). Makes two omelets. Because making omelets is such a quick process, make sure to have all your ingredients and equipment at the ready. If you don’t have skewers or chopsticks to stir the eggs in step 3, use the handle of a wooden spoon. Warm the plates in a 200-degree oven.

    These delicious, slender fries have a crisp exterior and a creamy interior, contain 1/3 less oil than traditional methods, and could not be easier to make. Recipe is from Cook's Illustrated (July, 2009) and the method is attributed to Michelin-starred French chef Jöel Robuchon. It skips the usual rinsing and soaking and you only need to fry once. You must use Yukon golds (Russets are too starchy).

    This is a great recipe for scalloped potatoes. It is so easy! It takes less than 1/2 hour to bake and have on table! The potatoe slices are cooked in the broth and cream mixture on top of stove which helps cut down on cooking time in oven. I have used a mixture of Asiago cheese and sharp cheddar cheese and it was fantastic! You could also use Havarti or any other kind of cheese you like!!!!! Excellent recipe!

    Recipe #408889

    This is an easy recipe from "Cook's Illustrated Magazine". I love America's Test Kitchen recipes as they always work!

    I made this glaze while preparing a spiral sliced ham in the CI way, see recipe #366252 . I don't much care for ruby port, so used tawny port and also light brown sugar. I reduced the pepper to 1/2 tsp., use more if you wish.A key to this recipe is the quality of cherry preserves. I used preserves from the Kedainiu konservu fabrikas, which contain 35% cherries and no preservatives. I found these at a large ethnic grocery.

    Recipe #404968

    From the Cook's Illustrated Website: Before preparing the baking dish or any of the other ingredients, measure out the frozen kernels and let them stand at room temperature until needed. When corn is in season, fresh cooked kernels can be substituted for the frozen corn. This recipe was developed with Quaker yellow cornmeal; a stone-ground whole-grain cornmeal will work but will yield a drier and less tender cornbread. We prefer a Pyrex glass baking dish because it yields a nice golden-brown crust, but a metal baking dish (nonstick or traditional) will also work. The cornbread is best served warm; leftovers can be wrapped in foil and reheated in a 350-degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Makes one 8-inch Square

    Recipe #318594

    The traditional accompaniments for Swedish meatballs are lingonberry preserves and Swedish Pickled Cucumbers. If you can’t find lingonberry preserves, cranberry preserves may be used. For a slightly less sweet dish, omit the brown sugar in the meatballs and reduce the brown sugar in the sauce to 2 teaspoons. A 12-inch slope-sided skillet can be used in place of the sauté pan—use 1 1/2 cups of oil to fry instead of 1 1/4 cups. The meatballs can be fried and then frozen for up to 2 weeks. To continue with the recipe, thaw the meatballs in the refrigerator overnight and proceed from step 3, using a clean pan. Serve the meatballs with mashed potatoes, boiled red potatoes, or egg noodles.

    Recipe #345440

    This is from The American Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, the same folks as Cook's Illustrated....I trust them implicitly. I haven't made this one yet.

    Recipe #373139

    I haven't tried it yet, but I trust these folks completely. It's from The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook. They said NOT to use lowfat or skim milk. I guess it's the least we can do for their not asking for half-and-half for dipping. Obviously, it's good served with maple syrup, but they also suggest serving with just a pat of butter and a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar. (Yeah....pass that syrup.) This recipe differs from other recipes in that it has a pure cream cheese filling with no fruits or chocolate added in. Might be best for picky eaters.

    Published in Cook's Illustrated magazine, March - April 2007. This is a traditional swiss potato dish made from grated potato. Serve with a traditional Swiss dish like geschnetzeltes (Zurich-style veal or pork with gravy).

    Recipe #408728

    Like grandma's..but better. Moist, delicious, and chocolatey

    Recipe #363446

    This is the best baked ziti I have ever tried...and I have tried a lot. This is from the March 2009 issue of Cook's Illustrated and has been thoroughly tested by them.
