The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Taste is good, but does not hold shape well when cooked. It puff up and anything with too much detail (like a snowflake) just looks like all rounded edges. Also DO NOT "FLOUR" WITH POWDERED SUGAR to keep it from sticking. The dough is very sticky and needs the extra flour you use when rolling out to hold it's shape. I rolled half using powdered sugar as some recommended. They were crackly on the top (like brownies), spread out into misshapen lumps and stuck like crazy to the parchment paper.. impossible to remove! the next half of the batch I rolled out with flour and had no problems. Still don't find that the cookies hold their shape as well as other recipes, but at least they were recognizable!

It's Way Better Than Thanksgiving Turkey Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Not sure how everyone else did this, but I followed the recipe to the letter and my Turkey legs were fully cooked (meat falling off the bone), tender and delicious in just under 2 hours of cook time! I only got to do 1 1/2 hours at 400 then not quite a half hour at 300 and they were already done. So now I have to find a creative way to keep them hot for the next hour and 45 minutes! (kind of frustrating) I can only imagine the state of the legs if I had kept cooking for another almost two hours! And forget about gravy. Everything in the pan is charcoal black - onions, garlic and spices - there is no water or broth in this recipe so everything just fries to a crisp, leaving nothing but butter, oil and black bits to make gravy with. Not sure how this recipe got so many 5 stars... check out other turkey leg recipes... they all say to roast them in 2 hours, and they add some kind of liquid ... kind of makes you wonder if maybe they are right!

Raspberry Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
OK, I can't blame the recipe, since I followed everyone else's advice! I used white chocolate on the top layer mixed with 2T of cream and 1/3c. raspberry preserves. Way too liquid. It never hardened up, but stayed the consistency of icing. Tasted yummy, but not exactly fudge. On the otherhand, I found that the dark chocolate bottom layer was too hard. It cut well, but was more the consistency of chocolate rather than fudge. I think I'd add a little more sweetened condensed milk. A good recipe, but I still need to tweak it a little.

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Try "Mrs. Sigg's" snickerdoodles instead. Same recipe except they add vanilla.

Jam Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
These are great. definitely need the walnuts. I also put in the jam and cooked it for the whole time. It worked great and helped the jam to set. I had made nice deep holes using the end of a chapstick container, so there was no running at all. Very pretty cookies. great to offer at Christmas.

Cream Cheese Cut-Outs II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I didn't really like these very much. I didn't find them all that easy to roll out and the texture wasn't flaky at all - more cakey. Without the icing these don't taste like much of anything.

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I agree. This recipe needs tweaking. More peanut butter, less sugar. And the chocolate coating. Talking about difficult. I used real dark baker's chocolate, and it was so thick and hard to cover the buckeyes. I tried to thin it with water and my chocolate "seized" and was worthless (I didn't realize that adding moisture to melted chocolate caused it to seize - whoops!) I was pulling my hair out! But hey, the end result did taste yummy - rich, but yummy.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
These are absolutely the best ginger cookies. I don't particularly like ginger cookies in general, but hey, it's Christmas and Christmas means gingerbread men, so I tried this recipe. I made it with dark molasses. They are so good. I'll be making these again and again... not just for Christmas! A recipe for 40 servings makes 64 big cookies. Put the sugared balls in the fridge before baking. Oh, and if your spices are new (ie: stronger) go easy on the ginger and cloves.

Royal Icing I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Fantastic. Maybe a little less yummy then just plain powdered sugar and milk, but so wonderful the way it hardens and stays on! No need for wax paper between cookies :)
