Texas Lizzies
My husband has been hankering after a fruit cake, but I wanted to try a fruitcake-ish cookie recipe for portion control. (Ha!) I didn't use the candied fruit; I used raisins and cranberries and a little chopped apricots. The batter seemed wet (probably because I oversoftened the butter), so I tossed in a wee bit of Irish oats (to go with the Irish whiskey) for body, and the result is a very tasty cookie that isn't overboard one way or the other. Fans of oatmeal raisin cookies would probably like this recipe if willing to try it.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
I followed this recipe today to make meat/cheese pies. It is a beautiful crust that rolled out right away and could handle being rolled out pretty thin. However, I blew it on the pies ... they were dry (not the crust's fault). The consensus at our table was that the crust seemed sweet; I just wish I had filled it with apples instead of ground beef and cheese. For us, this is an excellent recipe for dessert things, but I probably won't use it again for savory dishes. I simply cut the butter in with a fork and then used my fingers/hands to truly blend the dough into its flaky self.
