This is one of Darigolds most requested recipes according to the recipe card I found in my Darigold Butter package. I have been making this delicious recipe for years now and really appreciate the flavor and ease of the dish -- Enjoy!
The title says it all! Super yummy and the longer you whip it the silkier, creamier, and lighter it becomes! I would definitely suggest using good quality ingridients such as using good vanilla, freshly opened powdered sugar, and good quality butter--no margarine here! The flavors really come out in this frosting and it is so easy, simple, and fun!
This dessert has the most delicate and creamy flavors of almond, lightly sweetened cherries, and a creamy rice pudding! This recipe holds many special memories for me. My Grandma, who has now been gone for many years, made this since I was a little girl- and it has been a favorite of all of ours-especially my big brother who passed away a few years ago...it reminds me of holidays and all the people I love! No Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner is complete without it! Try it...it makes a beautiful presentation and is just a lovely dish.
Note: I did add 25 minutes to the cook and prep time to include cooking 3 cups of white rice. You will also need to chill the rice layer at least 4 hours and I did not add that to the prep or cook time.
This is a fabulous old recipe...the pastry has yeast in it yet requires no rising or kneading! This recipe is great for bakers who are not yet experts- These butterhorns are shaped like cresents and are beautiful anytime of the year but are extra special to serve during the holidays. I did see this recipe posted on another sight but not here on zaar. This recipe does take a bit of time but it is sooo worth it!!!! Please note that you need to refrigerate the pastry dough for at least 6hrs (I usually do mine overnight to split the work up:)-I did not include this time in the prep time. Please note that this recipe asks that you roll the dough out on a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar-not flour...please make sure you have enough before hand.
Since I was a teenager there was a fabulous spinach salad that I used to always get at The Metropolitan Grill in Seattle. At the time I lived a few hours away and was only able to get to Seattle every month or so...so I improvised and tried to duplicate the salad at home. Nothing beats The Metro but this really is a fantastic salad...goes great with so many different dishes.
My sister in law is from Indonesia. I learned how to prepare this from watching her. It can be VERY spicy depending upon the number of red jalapenos you decide to use-but you have to use at least 2 for the dish to have the right flavor. If you like spicy food you will really enjoy this dish. Ketjap Manis (also known as kecap manis) is a sweet and thick soy sauce found in some larger super markets and all asian markets. I see there is alsoa recipe for it on zaar if you can't find it else where.
So we have a favorite mexican restaurant we love to go to and we decided to try to make our favorite dish from there at home...with 4 kiddos at home cooking in is often easier (OK...it's ALWAYS easier) and definitely more cost effective. This is a little like fajitas but isn't grilled and has a more delicate flavor. If doubling the recipe I would recomend cooking 1 batch and then another-that way the skillet can stay hot enough and the chicken and vegetables don't just steam in the pan-you want them to carmelize a bit. Serve with lime, shredded lettuce, chopped cilantro and guacamole.
If you love sour cream and cheddar cheese you will really enjoy this recipe.
Note: You have to chill overnight or at least 12 hours before baking this dish-it makes all the difference. Preparation time includes time to boil potatoes.
