I made the most wonderful Baklava on ethnic night in gourmet class. I hadn't made it in a while and started craving it when I saw this little shortcut in a magazine at the doctor's office. (The best part about the wait is scanning the magazine rack!) Also, if you want to get even more fancy and creative, top with a dollop of Nutella or chocolate fudge, or even an chocolate mint bar.
These are a must at our house during the holidays. They don't last long, That is why I like this larger recipe.I think that BUTTER is a must in Pecan Sandies. Enjoy (prep time does not include chill time.)
This is another dessert that I've baked upteen times over the years! I originally found this on a Great American Recipe card. These cheesecake cookies are delicious and quick to make. I often prepare them for potlucks and family gatherings. They never last long!
My GF passed this recipe along to me last year before the holiday. I am making it again today for a block party. It's a buttery chocolatey delight! Make a double batch, one with & with out the nuts. *Prep and cooking time does not include chilling/cooling time.
These cookies make great ornaments! Snowmen, candy canes, stars, moons, holly leaves, reindeer, lighthouses, bells and fir trees galore. These are just a few of the cookie cutters we used making these wonderfully rich cookies. Paint each cookie with confectioner's sugar glaze and decorate with different colored sugars or you may sprinkle sugar on cookies before they bake.What fun! This recipe from Land O' Lakes.
These balls are so quick and easy to make. They make a nice addition to the baked goodies that you give as gifts. Make these about a week before you want to serve them as they mellow and the sharp strong alcohol taste blends in more with the other ingredients. Store in a tin with a tight lid. This year I couldn't find the Vanilla wafers so I used chocolate and I like them even more. To form the balls I use two teaspoons as the dough is quite moist. I store them in the freezer - they don't go hard and they are so good ice cold
My husband watched the local PBS Auction and they were on a cooking segment that had cookbooks for sale. There was one author making his famous Cowboy Cookies and Larry wrote down the ingredients and told me we had to make these. We did and they have been a family favorite for many years now. There are many variations of this recipe but we like this one the best (no nuts in ours). I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! You will need a heavy duty mixer for these and even then you may need to do the final mixing by hand.
