Fresh blueberries can be used in this recipe, I just usually use frozen ones as I have them on hand for smoothies. I usually make up an entire shortening carton's worth of pie crust and freeze the extra, this crust recipe does very well in a pinch though.
I'm always on the lookout for a new, different cheesecake, and this one from the Taste of Home magazine looks so pretty, I can't wait to try it. Please note this is cooked in a water bath to help decrease the cracking, but it is not necessary to the taste!
This is one of my favorite Italian desserts and the perfect ending to any Italian dinner. The shells are pretty simple to make, and taste so much better than the ready-made shells you buy in the Italian markets. Note that cooking time also includes chilling time.
These are wonderful, quick cookies. It is one of the first things I learned to "cook." You can add more or less oats (3 cups work best for me). I have found that the weather makes a difference on the consistency. It is very important not to boil them for longer than a minute.
This stuff is sooooooooooo goooooooood! A friend at work made it one time for a luncheon that we had at work and couldn't stay away from this. This is one of my favorite desserts if not my favorite. It just melts in your mouth. You have got to try this one. You will not be disappointed.
I have always loved butter tarts and this recipe from Food that Really Schmecks is my absolute favourite. The pastry crust recipe is from the bottom of the shortening box. It only works if you make the whole batch up at once but it refrigerates and freezes well! I use this pastry crust in all my pies, whether it's butter tarts or lattice crust apple pie, or tourtieres.
Another recipe from "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook":
"The little girls of Avonlea school always pooled their lunches, and to eat three raspberry tarts all alone or even to share them only with one's best chum would have forever and ever branded as "awful mean" the girl who did it. And yet, when the tarts were divided among ten girls you just got enough to tantalize you. " (from "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery).
Times are estimated and do not include cooling time beyond the initial 15 minutes (included in cooking time). The original recipe did not specify the size of package of frozen berries, so I guessed a 10 oz package based on the fresh raspberry substitution.
These are THE BEST cinnamon rolls! The recipe is from Todd Wilbur's "More Top Secret Recipes." and www.TopSecretRecipes.com. They're oooey, goooey and rich! The dough can easily be prepared in your bread machine, just follow your manufacturer's order of ingredients. I put the ingredients in the night before, and then roll out and bake in the morning. I would like to share the following suggestions by reviewers about the filling "leaking out" during baking:
1) add a few tablespoons flour to the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture
2) using a flour "shaker" or sifter, I lightly dust the margarine with flour before sprinkling with the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture, then again on top of the BS/cinnamon mixture, before rolling up the dough.
I took Emeril's recipe for baklava and made a few changes to streamline it a bit. My co-workers absolutely love this stuff! While it's not terribly difficult to make, it is a labor of love because of the time it takes. I use a 50-50 mix of pistachios and walnuts because a local deli uses it in their recipe - it is so good! Don't be scared by the 1 day prep time - this is to reflect the baklava setting overnight.
