Gingerbread Men Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
This recipe is delicious and the dough was easy to work with! To avoid rolling out the dough too many times and inevitably adding more flour, I separated the dough into 3 flattened disks before wrapping and refrigerating them. After an hour, I took the dough out of the fridge and rolled out each disk until they were the right thickness (for me, about half a centimeter). I then re-wrapped each disk in plastic and refrigerated them overnight. The next day, I simply unwrapped the disks, placed them onto my floured counter and cut out the gingerbread men!

Almond Shortbread I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
This recipe is very tasty. As stated by previous reviewers, this dough does get rock hard! But you just need to work the dough a bit with your hands to warm it up. I rolled my dough to about 1/4 inch thickness and used a snowman shaped cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. Each time I gathered up the dough, I rolled it out to 1/4 inch thickness and stuck it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. It was the perfect consistency for cutting out my snowmen. I also baked the cookies at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. (My cookie cutter was 5 inches long) The cookies turned out perfectly!

Pecan Turtle Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
These taste phenomenal! I had intended to follow the recipe exactly; however, when I got to the step of sprinkling on the chocolate chips, I found that I did have to use 2 cups of chocolate chips rather than 1 in order to cover the entire surface area. I also baked these in a 9X9 square springform pan. This resulted in a thicker cookie crust which was crunchy and delicious. Also, with the springform pan, it was super easy to slide the entire finished product onto a cutting board!

This recipe is amazing! I used Grand Marnier instead of orange zest as suggested by another user and they turned out perfectly!
