Texas Lizzies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
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

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
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.
