Anise Overnight Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
These are traditional with my family. We call them Grossmutter's anise drops, but the recipe is the same. To the person who said sometime they don't set up, I know what you mean. We have found you must use room temperature eggs, and don't make when the weather is very humid. Sort of like candy making in humid weather doesn't work. It's so muggy here in the summer, these are a winter time only project.

Irish Peanut Butter Potato Candy

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
I have made this exact recipe my whole life, it's a holiday tradition in our house. The secret is not using too much potato. If your potato is too big, you'll end up using so much confectioner's sugar. I know it takes a whole box usually, but instead of measuring it out, I just keep mixing a little more in at a time until I achieve the dough. You absolutely have to be a little flexible with this, and not get hung up on exact measurement with the sugar. Just add it gradually. I agree that it is very sweet, that's why I like to use chunky peanut butter, and maybe sprinkle in a dash of sea salt on finished pieces for that salty/sweet taste.
