The secret to these cookies is baking them at a low temperature.They are dense like a scone, with a cake-like inside. Recipe from "The Market" in Denver. My teenaged son LOVES these!
Tip: I flatten the cookies slightly with a greased bottom of a measuring cup, about halfway through baking, which produces a flatter cookie.
This syrup is concentrated stuff, use 1-2 tsp in 8 oz of milk. It's ultra-chocolatey, with a deep cocoa flavor, and not too sweet. This syrup is thick and smooth with a shine ...a chocolate syrup for adults. Use Dutch process cocoa powder if you want the finished product to have the beautifully deep color and flavor to which all good chocolate syrups should aspire.
This recipe makes one 6 foot strudel cut into sections, or two smaller strudels, by splitting the dough before rolling it out (as Nonna used to do). In fact, she used to make the pastry dough ahead of time and freeze it - that way it was "always ready"...
These are absolutely the chewiest, moistest, fudgiest brownies ever! I have tried adding so many different things to the batter, and they ALWAYS comes out great. They are also great without ANY add-ins! BUT by varying the add-ins, you can make different brownies every week (or day!!) SUPER EASY PREP! So, add "whatever floats your boat" and you will not believe how yummy they come out :) Oh, and the recipe doubles just fine--use a 9 x 13 inch pan instead and add a few more minutes of baking!
These are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. They make up easily, and they disappear fast. I make these every year when we put up our Christmas Tree. I serve them with hot Cocoa while we decorate our tree. I swear the cookies are anticipated as much as the tree!
"What a delectable treat for Eggnog lovers everywhere! These cookies have a wonderful spicy aroma and are great tasting. The fragrance of nutmeg and cinnamon will infuse your home with holiday spirit as you bake these cookies. They make delicious gifts and are a welcome addition to cookie exchanges. "
This recipe was passed down to me by my grandma, and has been a family favourite for years. These cookies are simple to make, and come out with a great texture, thanks to the oatmeal.
Depending on the humidity of the local climate, not all of the flour may need to be added. If desired, you can substitute half the all-purpose flour with whole wheat for a (slightly) healthier and denser cookie. Also, the chocolate chips can be substitued in all or in part with raisins.
Simple, but delicious, this is all about the ricotta. This is a low fat version of a Bon Appetit recipe that also included cream cheese, but not Amaretto. This ricotta is also good with peaches and crushed Amaretti cookies. Includes 30 minute stand time for the fruit. Each serving (based on two people) contains 3.5 grams of fat, and 1.5 grams of saturated fat (calculated from ingredient labels).
This is a great chocolate fondue recipe that has a hint of cinnamon in it. Chocolate fondue sounds like a hard thing to make, but it is so easy! There are so many things that you can dip in this fondue like bananas, strawberrys, pineapple, and so many other things.
Named after the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia, the first time this square was published under that name was in the early 1950's in the Vancouver Sun newspaper! This version of the original bar is from Company's Coming - 150 Delicious Squares! Later versions change the vanilla custard layer to mint or peanut butter but the original is my favourite.
You can make this a day ahead of a special occasion or keep it in the freezer. I used to freeze half because I'm very weak & I would eat the whole thing myself BUT I soon discovered that it tastes good even when its frozen!
