Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
The best sugar cookie recipe EVER! These turned out perfect! Nice and soft not overly sweet so you can enjoy with icing. We think they are better than the Lofthouse Cookies! Followed the recipe exactly and had no problem rolling them out and using cookie cutters. With the left over dough I rolled them in a ball and then flattened the ball some with my palm efore baking, as I just didn't think the would "melt" into a flat cookie as the cookies pretty much stayed in the original shape except they puffed up a bit. New favorite recipe and big hit with family and friends!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
The best chocolate chip cookies EVER! I used 1/2 chocolate chunk and 1/2 morsels...Yumm Yumm! I do think the vanilla was a little strong, so next time I will back off to 2 teaspoons instead of one tablespoon and see what happens.

Oh My! This is wonderful! Yes it is time consuming but it is well worth it! The only problem I had was cutting it it into diagonals as the top layer kept trying to come off, but no biggie I just tried to smooth it back out as well as I could. Some people said they thought there was much to honey sauce, I thought so at first, but it was quicly absorbed. Be sure to put it on immediately after pulling your Baklava from the oven, it is fun to watch it sizzle and then dissappear into the layers. I let it sit over night and dug into it this morning. I have to say, it is better than any thing I have had at restaurants! I had to give myself a pat on the back for this one! Thanks for the wonderful recipe :-)

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
Just made these cookies today and loved them! I used a little more dried cranberries than the recipe called for because I really like cranberries. Hints: The batter will be sticky, don't panic, they cook just fine. I was a little nervous because they didn't look like any biscotti I had cooked before. I made two "loafs" as described, but there is no way these were going to make 12x2 loaves. Mine were more like 7 inches long and about 3 inches wide. Let them cool so that they are not hot to the touch when you cut them, and use a very sharp serated knife, so you can cut through the nuts. If the loaf is to hot the cookies will break, or the nuts and cranberries will fall out. Use gentle easy sawing strokes when you cut. I flipped the cookies over half way through the second baking cycle so they would be good and cruncy. Once they cooled from their second bake, I dipped the flat portion of the cookies in semi-sweet chocolate. Yum. Love the crunch of the cookie and chewyness of the cranberries. Thanks for a new favorite holiday recipe!

Beef, Bean and Barley Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
My family loved this! I did make a couple of minor changes. I used 1 can of diced tomatoes, including the juice. Instead of all that water, I used one can of water (from the tomatoes)and one box of 32oz beef broth, instead of the two 14 oz cans. I also used Canneli beans, as that is what I already had in the house. Oh' and I omitted the caraway seeds. I served this with some warm dark rye bread and real butter. YUMMY! My husband hates cabbage but he ate it in this stew!
