I'm done for a while, Mel. I just wanted to get those posted before I go back to school next week. Or before Youngs-heimers sets in, and I forget.

Woo Hoo!!

One glorious week at the Wedding Cake Workshop with Chef Toba Garrett!

LIKE WHEN SOMEONE POSTS A RECIPE IN ALL CAPS THERESA!!! icon_lol.gif Oh, I'm just teasing you, but it must be yummy if you're yelling it at us! Hehehehehe! {{{hugs}}}

Oh, one more thing... someone used the abbreviation "tdp" in their recipe... what is that short for?

EDITED TO ADD: Now that I think about it, the D is right next to the S and I think 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt would be accurate. I think that was just a typo, so nevermind y'all. Dummy at work, here. icon_rolleyes.gif

Ok breathing a sigh of relief now... I just realized that the first 15 pages of that thread are ok and you can still access them at..

http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=11675&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=christmas&&start=0

I HIGHLY recommend from that thread the Lemon Coolers (great in different flavors too), Pecan pie cookies, and the snickerdoodles are to die for, oh yeah the cheese cake cookies too! I baked alot of cookies from that thread. Thank goodness we still have most of it.

Here is one of mine-well my mom's

Pecan fingers
1 cup butter or margarine
6 tablespoons of white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons of cold water
2 cups of flour
1 cup chopped pecans

Use medium cookie scoop shape into fingers 4 inch by 1 inch and bake 25 minutes at 325. While still warm roll in powdered sugar. Makes 28 cookies.

What a great thread! It's making me want to go eat all of that cookie dough that's in the fridge!!!

Here's our family's favorite Christmas goodie and I'm all about simple and quick, so it doesn't get much better than this. These are the type of cookie that people moan over when they bite into them and you can't eat just one!!!

Chocolate Balls

1 lb. Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar
1 small container Cool Whip
Crushed Nilla Wafer Cookies

Melt chocolate in microwave, stirring after 30 second intervals. Fold in Cool Whip and let cool in refrigerator. Once cool, roll chocolate mixture into balls and then roll balls into crushed Nilla Wafers. Keep refrigerated, or freeze.

Serve cold or frozen...they don't freeze solid, and they thaw quickly.

Enjoy!!!

I mostly lurk here icon_smile.gif but wanted to send this one...got it about 20 yers ago from my brother's then-girlfriend's grandmother...a Mrs MacDonald...It's idiot proof and I've since used Splenda instead of the sugar with no problem...

Scotch Shortbread

4 cups all purpose flour
1 pound butter (I use unsalted usually)
1 cup 'berry" sugar...can use granulated also
1 pinch salt

Preheat oven to 250-275F

Knead all together till smooth and well blended.
Spread into cookie sheet with sides.(a double batch fits a 17x22 sheet)
Mark "bars" and prick in centre of each with a fork (I use an old quilting ruler to mark lines)
Bake approx. 1 hour...check for browning around edges...she said you can cut off the outside ones and keep baking if you prefer crispier..
Let cool in pan.
Store in airtight container
I actually prefer these cold..fresh from the freezer ..they freeze beautifully!
A double bath gives me about 100 1inch x3inch bars

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another one I used to take in for bake sales at work...from a 1990 Robin Hood Flour "Baking Festival" magazine insert..made them every Christmas...

Cherry Chocolate Cookies

Heat oven to 350F

1 cup/250 ml shortening
1 1/2 cups/375ml granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp/5 ml almond extract
2cups/500 ml all purpose flour (or 2 1/4 cups/550 ml cake & pastry flour)

1 cup/250 ml bakers(or any) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups/375 ml Bakers(or any) angel flake coconut
1 1/2 cups/375 ml maraschino cherries,drained and coarsely chopped

Cream shortening and sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until well blended .

Add to creamed mixture gradually,beating on low speed until just blended.

Frstech...I was never sure(got this recipe over 20 years ago from a 90ish -year old Scottish lady)...I THINK it's "fruit sugar"..saw some in a store once years ago...it's supposed to be coarser than confectioner's ,but finer than granulated...I used to "grind" granulated a bit in my blender icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif ..in the last few years I've just been using regular granulated.....works fine..
