I have made these using dark rum, Grand Marnier and Bailey's Irish Cream, you can use any three with success.. I usually make these treats around the holiday season, but of coarse you can make them at any time. I make one batch using semisweet chocolate and one with white chocolate, these really should chill overnight before serving them, you'll be lucky if they make until the next day LOL! Yield is only estimated depending on the size of the balls --- you will LOVE these! :)
This recipe is similar to a fruitcake but much lighter. The texture is more like that of a pound cake. My mom got it from a Philadelphia cream cheese box many years ago. She made it for my dad every Christmas. I inherited the recipe after she passed away,and now I make it for him. I am posting it here so I won't lose it.I hope some of you will enjoy this as much my dad.
My mom used to make these every Christmas for us when I was growing up, and they bring back special memories for me, especially around the holidays. We have been eating these for 50 years! These are my all time FAVORITE cookies :) They make a lot of cookies, and the amount really depends on how thick you actually roll the dough, and how thin or thick you cut the cookies. The cooking time is for EACH batch of cookies, and the prep time does not include time to chill dough.
this is delicate and buttery tasting. All three flavours I think help empart the butter taste. This is a nice recipe for gift giving. This nice loaf freezes very well wrapped neatly in saran then foil.
I love these cookies. It's hard to stop eating them so make a double batch. They make impressive gifts as well. If you have any filling left over, you can refrigerate and use it warmed up over ice cream.
Like Nanaimo Bars, butter tarts are a Canadian treat and all recipes are very similar. Increase the corn syrup - they will be runnier; increase the brown sugar - they will be less runny. The cooking time will also affect the texture of the filling. My daughter and granddaughter won second place in the butter tart contest at the Good Food Festival in Toronto...... and yes, I am very proud of them ....... and yes, the tarts are delicious! My granddaughter came up with the recipe name based on the display platter they used for the contest. You can leave out the raisins entirely or decrease the amount ........ try currants or pecans, or walnuts or a mixture. My grandchildren like them with chocolate chips - the choice is yours!
Butter tarts are a Canadian tradition. Waaaay back in the 1970s, a national contest here in Canada concluded that these butter tarts, originating from Wilkie's Bakery in Orillia, Ontario, were the best. I certainly think so and it's the only recipe I use. Add a sprinkle of toasted walnuts when you add the raisins, if you wish, or use only walnuts if you don't like raisins.
I can't believe in all the Snickerdoodle recipes listed here this one isn't among them. This is the best. Every time I take these somewhere, people declare these are the best snickerdoodles they have ever had! I think the trick is to not over bake...bake until just starting to crack on top!
This is a recipe from my coworker - this is what we make several times a year for all the birthdays in our office!! This is slightly different than the others posted on here since it doesn't use butter. ENJOY!!
if you want a surefire hit...
these take a little more time to make - in mini muffin tins...but you canNOT stop eating them and they disappear at any party in a flash! This Is A Labor of Love to make individual mini tarts [make it much faster by making a pan's worth and cutting into squares like brownies]- but everyone asks for the recipe NOW... a pretty easy way to spread more joy in the world...
EVERYONE loves them - even if they don't like nuts... OR pecan pie!
These are different than the other ones posted on here. We love these better than the "actual" real thing! The topping is traditionally a milk chocolate one but semi-sweet chocolate is good too. I am guessing at the prep time.
