I got this traditional Dutch molded cookie recipe 20 years ago. These spicy cookies are great to make ahead around Christmas because they last a long time.

This is a basic West Indian curried chicken recipe. It's extremely easy to prepare and delicious with standard Caribbean fare. Peas and rice go great with it!

  1. Vegetarian Four Cheese Lasagna
  2. Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
  3. Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
  4. Best Beef and Broccoli
  5. Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

A rich, spicy preserve made of fruit (usually chopped cherries, dried apricots, apples or pears, raisins and candied citrus peel), nuts, beef suet, various spices and brandy or rum. Old-time mincemeats included minced, cooked lean meat (usually beef)-hence the name. Most modern versions do not use meat. The ingredients are combined, then covered and allowed to mature for a month for the flavors to mingle and mellow. Commercially prepared mincemeat is available in jars in most supermarkets-particularly around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Mincemeat can be used in many dishes including pies, tarts, puddings and cookies.
