Karen DeMasco beats the dough for these buttery cookies with an entire vanilla bean, so the oils in the pod add deep vanilla flavor. By rolling the dough in turbinado sugar before slicing and baking the cookies, she makes them extra-crispy. (Recipe adapted from The Craft of Baking.) Recipe found on Food & Wine and is a staff favorite.
From Cooking Light website. Something different to make with over-ripe bananas (this is the key to a strong banana flavour--the more spotted the banana the tastier.) The biscotti are very small "baby-finger" sized--probably how they earned a low calorie rating!
Don't let the name fool you! These are cookies that end up soft and tender with a nice crunch from the nuts. I love the flavor comination of the lemon and banana. I personally don't care for rasins, so I use crasins (dried cranberries) This is another great way to use up ripe bananas!
The original recipe is from the Odense.com site. I love almond paste and thought these were quite tasty and looked like biscotti from a coffee house- not hard to make at all. Next time I might add a little almond extract and even a little lemon zest would be nice but they were gone in a short time just the way the recipe is posted. I doubled the recipe and only made 2 loaves so my biscotti were quite big.
These are a nice change from the traditional butter sugar cookie. Peanut Butter Lovers will enjoy these. You can find this recipe in the 2003 Country Woman Christmas Cookbook, as well as the Taste of Home's 2004 Treasury of Christmas Recipes Cookbook.
These are the best macaroons I've ever made! Slightly crunchy on the outside; rich, moist and chewy on the inside! Just the way we like them! The original recipe was off the back of the bag of Mounds brand coconut, but the baking time was off a bit as well as the amount of coconut required to roll them in. So here's how I made them! ENJOY! They are really good!!! Hope you try them! :)
This is a recipe handed down to me from my mom. Couldn't find it when I looked on here. This is CHOCK FULL of ALMONDS and DELICIOUS. My family's favorite. Though the dough is loose, it will come together if you follow the recipe.
