Candy Cane Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
This is a great recipe, same as I have used for years. I use all butter flavored shortening, total of 1 cup. Also to form my cookies I take about 1 measuring teaspoon of red and 1 of white and roll together to make a ball. I then place the ball with either the white side or red side down on an un-floured cutting board and begin to roll out into about a 4 inch "rope." As I roll I press lightly with my fingers moving up on one end and down on the other. (be gentle!) I made a video on FB for some of my friends to see how to do this. When you roll the ball out into a rope this way it makes the Candy Cane lines. Move the "rope" over to the cookie sheet, (use parchment paper!) turn one end to make the candy cane hook as you place it. The reason some people are getting cracking when trying to form the cookie is that the dough is drying out. It should always be about the consistency of play dough. If you start having trouble drop a little water in to maintain consistency. I find the red dough seems to dry out quicker than the white. It is best to make all of the cookies the same size. If you do not you will have some come out a little over cooked. These cookies are labor intensive! You have to make them with love. They are my signature cookie every Christmas.

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
This recipe is perfect. One helpful hint, to get the right size ball use a 1/2 teaspoon (measuring spoon) to scoop up your cookie dough for shaping into a ball. Use a slightly heaping 1/2 teaspoon full. You will get a nice size ball and they will all cook evenly because they are all the same size. I cooked mine for about 9 min. If you make them bigger then you will have to increase your cooking time, if you get much bigger than a full heaping teaspoon you may start having trouble with the bottom browning too much and the inside not as done as it needs to be. Great recipe just used it and made about 3 doz cookies. Experiment to get the size of ball you want and the cooking time that is needed to satisfy you. Once you get it down you will forever have great results!

Glazed Cornish Game Hens With Apricot Pistachio Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
I wish I would have read the comments regarding the recipe. It did brown too quickly. I ended up tenting with aluminum foil to avoid over browning. I didn't use the pistachio garnish on the side. Not much juice left and decided it wasn't necessary. The Hens were delicious and tender, tasty all the way through. I will use this recipe again cook at a lower temp. and leave out the parsley and pistachio’s.
