Butter Cookies II
This is one of the best spritz/butter cookie recipes I've used. However, I did make some slight changes. I reduced my flour by a 1/4 cup, I added a 1/4 cup more butter and also used almond extract with the vanilla. Also, I found that 400 degrees F was to high even for just 8 minutes but 375 degrees F was perfect at 8 minutes....nice color and texture! I've saved this recipe and will share.

Crab Stuffed Manicotti
This was very easy to make.....however, if like me you want to taste crab in every bite....please increase the crab amount. When I made this dish as the recipe requested, I only tasted a hint of crab. My second batch turned out better than the first by these simple additions...I used 3/4 amount of the ricotta cheese and I bought 1 pound of real crab legs in addition to the can lump crab......way, way, better!!!.

Portuguese Sweet Bread I
I love this recipe...tweaked it a litte...instead of all milk I used 3/4 milk and 1/4 heavy cream, I also used real butter and increased the amount to 5 tablespoons (I right - you don't watch carbs when planning on eating sweet bread). I was actually trying for a sweet butter bread. But the end results were fantastic!! only last 2 days in my house. Not sure about the other reviewers who said it ran over..never happened to me...also, put your crust color to light...that should clear up the darkening of the crust. Thanks so much for sharing this simple to make goodness!!!
