Raspberry Star Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I've been on AR for years & I think this is the 1st review I've written! I bought raspberry preserves and then searched for a recipe to use it in when I came across this. I've been looking for a good cut-out recipe for years and I think I've finally found it! I loved that I didn't have to refrigerate the dough and wait hours, I could just mix it and roll it right away! Based on the other reviews I added the almond extract and it was perfect. I made the first batch into stars with the raspberry preserves but I am also going to make another batch and just decorate as a plain cut-out cookie. This is definitely a keeper!

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I've been using Allrecipes for years and this is the first review I'm writing! I've used this recipe many times and it always turns out awesome. But of course today, on my husband's b-day, the frosting "flopped". It was greasy & un-spreadable and I couldn't figure out what went wrong. I had enough ingredients to start over and the only thing I can figure is that on the first batch (the one that went wrong) I was at the bottom of the peanut-butter jar. I think that the peanut-butter settles and when I started over using a fresh jar it worked perfect. I have 3 children so we go through peanutbutter quickly so I know it wasn't old, I just think it was greasier because it was toward the end. So...if you haven't stirred your PB everytime you open the jar, make sure you are starting with a fresh one! Like other reviewers, I cut the sugar and one other tip, I like to stick the butter & PB in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds just until the butter starts to melt and it comes out super creamy and takes away any of that "gritiness" you sometimes get with PB.
