The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I just finished making these cookies and they are wonderful. I have to confess I altered the recipe. After reading many of the reviews I decided that I would like a light, buttery, crisp cookie. Therefore, as many suggested, I added an extra teaspoon vanilla and a cup of powdered sugar in addition to the white sugar called for in the original recipe. I followed another reviewer’s idea of adding a ½ cup butter extra making 2 cups of butter and only 3 eggs instead of 4. That reviewer also cut the flour by one cup. Instead of doing that I replaced one cup of flour with one cup finely chopped pecans and added 4 drops of pecan oil (not extract) to the wet ingredients. This made an excellent cookie. However, I’m sure mine was not as easy to work with as the original recipe. It was very sticky and some of the points of my snowflakes broke. But the flavor and texture of the cookie was amazing. My mother, husband and I couldn’t stop eating them. I do want to try the original recipe because I’m sure it is great, too. I thank you for giving us all a great recipe to play with. It is certainly tolerant of changes. Superb!!

Crispy Shrimp Tempura
I had 2 pounds of shrimp to cook so I doubled the recipe exactly. I used my deep fryer and kept the temperature at 375. When the shrimp came out they were delicious and crispy for a minute or two, then they began to get soggy. I had to do several batches so most of my shrimp were doomed to sogginess. I solved the problem by quickly dipping the battered shrimp in Panko bread crumbs before frying. These stayed crispy and were very good, but they were not exactly tempura shrimp anymore. This is a good recipe if you do a small amount and be sure to serve it immediately. I’m not sure, but I think this will be true of any tempura shrimp recipe.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls
I’ve been looking for a good recipe for hamburger buns. This is it!! We love them. We used 1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour and 2 cups of all purpose flour (didn’t have bread flour). My husband is learning to bake since he retired and he is so pleased with the results of this recipe that he brags to everyone that will listen. He has made these rolls twice now, and they turn out great each time. The first time we had them with Pulled BBQ Chicken. It was wonderful. The second time we had hamburgers. I’ll never buy hamburger buns again. It makes eleven 4 inch rolls. Thank you for sharing.
