Bacon Roll Ups I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2000
These were very easy to make, and I liked the fact that you could freeze them ahead of time. My husband really liked them, but I thought that they lacked a certain something. Maybe next time I may add some spices or chopped chili peppers or minced onion (haven't decided yet!)to the cream cheese mixture. Because they were so easy, could freeze ahead of time, and were pretty tasty, I will definitely make them again. Also, I had too much of the cream cheese mixture leftover! I had four slices of bread left and not enough bacon. Next time, I will buy two loaves of bread, and two pounds of bacon. I will have bread and bacon leftover, but will use all of the cream cheese mixture. (I can use leftover bread for sandwiches, bacon for breakfast, but wasn't sure what to do with leftover cream cheese mixture??). They're really nice to have a bunch in the freezer anyway. I know this is long, but lastly, I found it easier to spread the cream cheese on FIRST, then slice the bread into thirds.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2001
These were awesome! They puffed up into golden brown little muffins that were scrumptuous. I made them for the Superbowl and everyone LOVED them! The only changes I made were the ones that were suggested on earlier reviews. DEFINITELY cut biscuits into thirds (not halves) and I also used minced onion (thought that regular chopped onion would be overpowering also). Lastly, I only had half of a medium-sized tomato, so I was worried that I wouldn't have enough filling, and it was perfect (made and filled exactly 24)! In fact, if I had a whole tomato, I would've had too much. Other suggestions: Trick from a friend....for a recipe that calls for crumbled cooked bacon....cut up bacon pieces before you cook them, then they all fry up nice and even with no crumbly bacon mess afterwards. I fried up a whole pound and froze the other half to use next time I make these! Great recipe!

Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2001
I made these for V-day this weekend and wrapped them individually for all of the members of my family. This is a good sugar cookie recipe because you don't have to wait for dough to chill. I only rated it as a 3 in easy and quick category because it is a little time-consuming to cut out and you have to be careful when cutting out the "inside" heart....when you pick up the remainder "outside", it is easy to tear it, so you have to take your time. Also, I only came up with about 12-13 cookies each time I made it, so maybe my cookie cutter was bigger...they made super looking cookies, though. I frosted it pink on the "under" layer. Top layer I frosted white and sprinkled with red, and then I assembled them. I also wonder if a raspberry/strawberry preserve could be used...it would be very pretty for the "under" layer, but I wonder if it would soak into the cookie and make it soggy?? Don't let my comments scare you, though....this was a very good cookie and cute recipe!

Pink Valentine Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2001
Way too thick and horribly salty. I had to add more powdered sugar and tons more milk (only go 1 tablespoon at a time, though, so it doesn't get too thin) to cut back on the saltiness. Cookie recipe was great, but next time I'll just use my usual powdered sugar frosting recipe...(with no salt!)

Double-Decker Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2001
Super easy and really yummy....everyone in the family loved it. This was the first time I made fudge, so I was a little nervous, but it set up great! The only change I will make is to pour the chocolate layer first, then peanut butter layer on top. That way when I flip it over and cut it, the chocolate layer will be on top....it is more appetizing looking than the light tan peanut butter layer.

Raspberry Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2002
OH MY GOSH! I have found a new favorite cookie recipe! These are awesome! I saw the same recipe in my Taste of Home cookbook, so when I saw it here, too, I just knew I had to try it. I did make a few changes: 1. I used vanilla instead of almond, simply because I didn't have any almond extract...they were still superb. 2. Due to reviews, I added a tablespoon or two more sugar and a few tablespoons less of flour....they were not dry at all and rolled very easily. 3. I did not have "seedless" jam, so I used regular kind (with seeds)....just fine....I can't see a reason to use seedless, unless you have dentures :) Sidenote: The cookbook recipe called to chill the dough for an hour. I was impatient and did not do this, and they were great. It did say, though, it would make the dough easier to handle, so if you're having trouble, maybe trying the "chilling thing". I just can't get over how outstanding these cookies are....must try this one people!
