Chinese Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
These were delicious. They received high marks from the whole family! I used butter instead of shortening and white wheat flour instead of cake flour. Impatient as I am, I just stuck the wrapped dough in the freezer for about 15 minutes and they were fine. I wasn't able to roll the dough into logs, though. It turned out more squarish so I had to reshape the dough after chilling. Also 1 roll was way too big, I rolled my dough into 2 "logs" and wrapped them separately. Overall, these cookies were a big success. I used the Quick Fudge Icing (from All-Recipes) and also sprinkled a little powdered sugar on the cookies prior to baking.No walnuts for me, but they were great without! The cookies kept well and the entire family enjoyed these immensely! Great recipe, I would definitely recommend trying it.

Quick Fudge Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Oh my word! This fudge frosting was absolutely mouthwatering! It was perfect for what I was making (Chinese cookies) and it tasted delicious. Like other reviewers advised, I cooked the mixture on Low until all the sugar was dissolved. As for my own changes, I added 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and decreased the white sugar to 3/4 cup. I think this may have given the frosting a slightly creamier taste. After taking the saucepan off heat, I whisked the frosting until it was cooled and my frosting came out thick and creamy, just like I wanted. I can see that, if you did not whisk as long, this recipe would also be great for a glaze. Wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing!

Pope's Valentine Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
These cookies were so good! The whole family loved them. As other reviewers said they were kinda bland, but as a simple valentines cookie they were great for us. To make them a little sweeter, I mixed red food coloring with sugar and generously sprinkled on top of the cookies, but icing would work well, too. If they are crumbly, just keep mixing! I thought mine were too dry, but after another minute or so of mixing (I used an electrical mixer) the dough was perfect for cut-out cookies. The confectioner's sugar is what really makes these cookies different from any others I have made. Thanks for a fast, easy, awesome recipe Jelly!

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
These cookies were so fast and easy! I always have trouble with no bake cookies and these ones turned out well. They do harden extremely fast and they aren't exactly cookie-shaped, but they taste amazing! I didn't have a whole 1/2 cup of p-nut butter and I almost burnt the coco mixture trying to add the other ingredients, but I think these cookies are definitely worth the effort. If you're looking for fast snack to share with your kids, then these are perfect, I just wouldn't recommend them for a party or anything. Thanks for the recipe, Robin!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
My daughter (12) has been making these for breakfast for a year or so now and we haven't gotten tired of this recipe. We use white wheat for the flour and cane sugar which I think tastes better than white. They are a little denser with the whole wheat but very tasty and maybe just a little bit healthier :)

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I thought this soup was delicious and I don't even like mushrooms! My kids who are more daring with tasting new things liked it as well. Didn't have any dill so added a bit of oregano and also some rosemary garlic. for any who thought this tasted bland, key is probably the broth- I used a homemade chicken broth for this recipe and that added a lot of flavor as it always does to most recipes.
