When I was in high school, I cleaned Betty's house to earn extra money. Betty made these awesome cookies that are still my favorite all these years later. The original recipe called for a brand of shortening called Fluffo. I don't think that brand is made any more, but using the butter-flavored Crisco provides a good substitute.
Most of my family does not like spicy food. So, if you are looking for a spicy meatball, this is not the recipe for you. It is a basic meatball and quite easy to make. To keep my meatballs of uniform size, and not too large, I use a 'medium' cookie scoop. The medium scoop is just over a Tablespoon. So, the end result is a small-medium size meatball...not those gigantic meatballs that some people like.
My entire family loves pierogis....a rare thing indeed! This is a recipe I found in our local newspaper. Sometimes I lower the fat by replacing the sour cream with yogurt. Prep time includes cooking the pierogies, since that is active. The passive time is to potatoes cooking and the dough resting. If you've never made pierogis, this could take you quite some time. When I first started making them, I would double or triple the batch and spend on taking most of the day making them and freezing for later. Now, I can make a single batch in about an hour. A few tips for newbies....put some extra flour in my dough. Add a little milk to the potato filling to make it a little softer; roll out the dough a little thicker so you have more to work with when you stretch and fold; don't overfill the pierogis.
I am planning to make this for Thanksgiving. Sounds like a nice squash option. The recipe came from Wegmans. Update: Hi all.. This is my recipe....and it is yucky!! If I could rate my own recipe, I wouuld give it a 1*...yep, it's that bad!! Perhaps it could be salvaged with far less onions, and maybe using a nice sweet onion rather than red onions.
Enjoy the flavors of the Caribbean in this Plantain-Coconut Streusel Cake with Butter Rum Glaze. This recipe was created for RSC#8, and I know you will enjoy it! To lower the fat content, you can substitute non-fat plain yogurt for the sour cream. Another popular substitution is bananas for the plantains, but if you do that you will definitely have a sweeter cake with a stronger banana flavor.
