Holiday Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Shortbread is my all time favorite but I am sorry to say I did not care for this. I was so disappointed because the reviews were so good. I followed the recipe exactly as written. First of all I could not prick the shortbread because every time I put the fork in the batter in the pan flaked out flour and it was a mess. Once cooked the cookies tasted like flour and had a kind of hard texture in the middle and did not at all melt in your mouth. I think there was certainly too much flour in this recipie for the amount of butter.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Tasty and easy way to serve lamb. I made a few substitutes to accommodate the ingredients I had on hand. I substituted sultana raisins for the golden, and MacIntosh apples for the pears. Rather than add the almonds to the dish I toasted sliced almonds and sprinkled them on top just before serving. I served the lamb over couscous rather than rice and used a side dish of a sweet potato casserole. This was a nice combination of flavors that complimented each other and was rich and flavorful. In addition I used my slow cooker rather than cooking it in the oven.
