A wonderful rich cookie, which is great served with a nice hot coffe or chocolate on one of those bitter winter days.
Easy to make and very impressive.
When baking with kids the coffee can easily be ommited.
Prep time includes chill time.
Tasty little Easter treats made with yeast. They look great on any Easter buffet and are especially kids pleasing. Though a little more effort than other baked goods, very easy nonetheless.
Prep time does include time for dough to rise.
This recipe comes from a wonderful pumpkin/squash cook book that my sis found at a local book store.
It is rather easy to make and the end results taste very nice. This recipe is great for company for it looks quite impressive and everybody will think you spent the whole day in the kitchen. ;)
This is a very sweet candy using the famous Italian amarettini cookies as a basis. It's quick and easy to put together and makes a great gift. It can be easily varied by subbing different alcohols or flavoured-syrups for the amaretto or using a different type of cookie as the basis.
Chill time is included.
This is what I came up with having to use up a big head of savoy cabbage. It's super easy to make and perfect for one of those chilly autumn or winter days when all you want to do is snuggle up on the couch with something hot in your hands.
These are chunky yet crunchy oatmeal raisin cookies with a wonderful natural sweetness and a hint of cinnamon. I like these a lot and hope so will you!
Feel free to add some chopped nuts of your choice if you like (but make sure to add some more liquid to the dough then).
I found this loverly recipe in a cooking magazine and it instantly appealed to me! It very easy and quick to put together and makes for a wonderful breakfast. Since I like to spread my scones with some jam, I use less sugar. So if you want them to be sweeter, just take more sugar.
My sis and me came up with this recipe when searching for a nice, relatively quick to make and warming dinner dish on one of those cold winter days. This soup is not overly spicy and has a light sweetness coming from the carrots. It makes for a thick soup, so if you like your soup to be less like a puree, you might have to add more broth to it. We served this with Recipe #178020, which was very very tasty!
This famous sweet biscuit literally translates into American, referring to the GIs baking this biscuit in Germany after WW II.
It has a fluffy soft texture and a wonderfully vanilla taste. Typically it is covered with a lemon icing (and I will give that option here), but I like it way better without. So do as you please. :)
This is a very yummy and easy to make bread recipe. The use of yoghurt gives it a light and in a way fluffy texture and also a wonderful taste. This bread goes great with butter or jam or just eaten plain.
I found this recipe in a book in the library and it instantly appealed to me because of its unusual exotic flavour (coconut and chili).
There is a little story behind its name: In Jamaica they say peas when they mean beans and therefore this dish is called rice with peas even though there are none in it.
These are very easy and quick to make muffins with a great fruity flavour. They are a perfect summer´s day treat. Can be adapted to your personal jam/fruit preference.
Edited 3/2/09: In response to Sarah's review I'm posting the conversions into US measurements here as well. However these are naturally a little different from the metric ones. So I'd highly recommend you to check your batter before filling it in and if its too runny add a bit more flour and if its too thick a bit more fluid to get the right consistency.
