Forgotten Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
They came out literally, just like the picture! I doubled the recipe in my 5 quart kitchen aid mixer just fine. I was baking them for a breast cancer awareness fundraiser so I used red food coloring in the final mixing stages to make the meringue pink before folding in the mini semi-sweet chips and chopped peanuts and they took to a nice pink color. They also didn't spread when baking so I could pack the parchment lined cookies sheets closely with cookies and bake 2 batches simultaneously! The hardest part of the recipe is not opening the oven before time is up!

Black Forest Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
I made this last night- a double recipe. It made a lot more than I expected. I used the variation posted and made chocolate "muffin holder cups" which came out beautifully. Very elegant looking. The mousse stayed fluffy as I folded in the chocolate/syrup mixture and cherries. Mext time I think I'll lightly chop the cherries for a more even distribution when folded in. I also whipped the cream in my kitchen aid mixer a long time. It was very thick and stiff which helped when folding in the chocolate/syrup and cherries. My husband loved black forest baked items and thinks this is a classic favorite of his now! A surprisingly easy recipe, although cherry brandy isn't so easy to find at liqour stores! I think you could substitute canned raspberries for the syrup and Chambord just as easily for a raspberry mouse and garnish with fresh raspberries and mint.
