Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Just mixed up the frosting. Of course, like many professional bakers recommend, I beat the butter(unsalted) and shortening about 8 minutes. These were the changes I made that made it delicious and a good frosting consistency. I used 1/2 cup Smuckers Special Dark Topping. It really doesn't taste that fudgy but that was definitely o.k. with me. I just wanted a good tasting chocolate buttercream frosting. I used 2 tsp. half and half. A little over a tablespoon of vanilla. Perfect sweetness. A recipe that could be varied easily. Smooth and I can hardly wait to frost my halloween cupcakes.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
NOTES: I MADE 1 + ½ THE LEMON FILLING. The lemon juice I used was ¾ cup + 2 tlbs zest - it took me six lemons at least to get what juice I needed. Using extra lemon juice requires just a little more flour 1/3 cup. I thought my crust was too brown on the edges, but I cooked my much longer that it says too, probably 10 min. The filling took 25 min. Better too done than not done enough. I sprinkled coconut on mine when there was about 10 min. left of cooking. Excellent. May just double the lemon fillilng next time.
