Pecan Tassies
These were really good and I figured out how to make them perfectly by the time I was almost at the end! I did the trick with the wine cork wrapped in a baggie to make a depression in the dough before baking them (without filling) for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, they will be puffy and kinda deformed, but this is perfect for using your wrapped wine cork again to re-manipulate the dough and then immediately filling with pecan mixture. I had my husband help (one reshape and one fill the cups) and then bake for the remaining time, 10 min. Good luck! They're worth it!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork
This was really good and very tender, the meat just fell apart. I seasoned the pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder before putting into the slow cooker. I used 2 cans (14oz each) of cranberry and about 1 and a half onions. Mine was finished in 6 1/2 hours on low and I served over brown rice. I thought the flavor was wonderful, but I could also see how some people may think it's too bland. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of flavor but some people may want to add a touch of cayenne or more pepper to give it that little extra zing.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Ok, so I learned a valuable lesson today.. when it says to stir in the flour, DO NOT use the lowest speed on your hand mixer and think it's the same thing. I made these cookies (with 3 cups sugar and 2 tsp vanilla as modifications) and made the above mistake. The dough was soooo sticky. I left in the fridge for over 24 hrs and still so unmanageable, but delicious, that I had to add ridiculous amounts of flour just to be able to roll out. Needless to say, they were not as tasty. I decided to scrap those and start again but only use the hand mixer to cream the butter and beat in the eggs. After that, I folded in the flour and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The dough (with the same ingredients as before) was not sticky and light as a feather! I divided into 3 balls and wrapped in wax paper to let chill in the fridge. After 2 hours, the dough was quite firm.. nothing like the dough from before that I had chilling for a day and a half! Amazing what a difference something like that can make!
