I got this and modified slightly from VegWeb. Proof that you don't need butter or shortening to make good sugar cookies! These are really easy & yummy. I used an icing similar to Sugar Cookie Icing to stick the sprinkles on.You have fun two ways from cut-out cookies: decorating, and eating :-)
I really don't care much for fruitcake. That being said, this recipe actually sounds like it might be good. I am adding it here so I can find the recipe to bake for Christmas. I may substitute 1/2 cup coconut rum for half the pineapple juice when I make it. NOTE: Cake needs to mellow for 2 weeks before serving.
These fruit confections are easy to make and great to give as tasty treats for the holidays. Often sugarplums are not made with plums at all. You can use them but in this recipe it calls for gold and red colors which is great for the holiday presentation.
I saw this on my morning news and loved it.
This is a recipe from a Chatalaine Magazine that I had.I havent made this one yet but will make it for Eastertime. These can be rolled in icing sugar or granulated sugar.
Time does not include refrigeration time.
I had bought a large jar of cherries to make my Three Not So Blind Mice recipe #47819 , So with the left overs I soaked them and they disappeared!!! Also the left over Rum that soaked the Cherries can be used in a drink of your choice or try it in my Cranberry, Apple Spiced Tea #48626
These cookies are so dainty and pretty that I served them at my daughter's birthday tea. When I make them during the year, I use multicolored sprinkles on top rather than the crushed candy canes. They are on my "must have" list at Christmas. They are always the first to go at a party. I've had several people say, "I just can't stop eating them". Best eaten within about 2 days of baking. Note that dough does need to be chilled for about an hour before baking.
This is the easiest fudge... recipe can be changed to suit the alcohol you like e.g. Rum, Brandy, Kahula, Whiskey are all the types of alcohol I have used. Favourite Nuts may be added, thinned with a little cream it can be changed into a sauce to top Ice Cream or used as a frosting, endless uses. Enjoy
This is so easy and yet it is probably the best fudge I've ever had. I usually omit the pecans. My niece used this recipe, substituting 3-4 drops peppermint extract for the orange zest, and earned a blue ribbon at the county fair. Even my 12-16 year old 4H girls had no problems making it. Note: make sure you use fresh orange zest. Dried will make the fudge bitter. Also make sure you don't get any of the bitter white part of the rind when you are zesting your orange.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and yet it always gets 'oohs' when people see the candies and 'aahs' when they taste them!
I've gotten several z-mails asking about the candy coating. They are wafers that you melt to then dip candies into to coat them. They are usually sold in the candy section of craft or baking stores. I've seen them in the candy making section of Wal-Mart also. If you look at the ingredients photo on Recipe #104941, you'll see a photo of them. They are a different 'stiffness' than white chocolate chips but some reviews have successfully used those when they can't find the candy coating. Hope that helps!
