Luscious Lemon Snaps
Great recipe and easy to make. I took the advice of others and added only 1/2 C. oil and added more juice in a slow stream until the dough came together. I've also tried with oranges/orange juice and lemon extract substituted for the vanilla and all of those combos work nicely too.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes
Terrific recipe! I made these for brunch and they were a big hit. I also made traditional buttermilk pancakes but these disappeared first. Nobody ever guessed they were full of oats and whole wheat since they were too tasty to be a healthier alternative. The only issue was that they did not bubble like traditional pancakes so I needed to peek underneath in order to know when to flip.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
I've tried an endless number of biscuit recipes and this is now my Official recipe for biscuits. The original recipe is perfect as-is but I've made some variations (substituted 1 C. AP flour for 1 C. white whole wheat flour or added grated cheese and/or herbs) with great results too. Also, you can make this in a FOOD PROCESSOR: Put all dry ingredients in processor and pulse a few times. Then add small, cut-up chunks of the shortening (sometimes I use cold butter) and pulse until coarse. Add milk a little at a time (you might not need all of it) until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and turns into a ball . Flatten dough with your hands (I skip the rolling pin) and proceed as directed. From start to eat, less than 1/2 hour! Thanks for the recipe!
