This makes a fabulous main course salad for brunch, lunch or a light dinner, as well as an extra-special dinner side salad.
I love the inclusion of the eggs, as it adds some extra “oomph” to the salad. The warm dressing has a wonderful sweet and tangy flavor that pairs really well with all of the other ingredients.
A wonderful spinach salad recipe with great ingredients and a warm, sweet and tangy dressing.
This is such a fun dish. The flavors are unexpected and it's a great way to use up the remnants of the big holiday dinner. Sometimes stratas can be too eggy for me. Basically it's a flavor bomb between the ham, cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing. It's tangy and texture wise it's right on.
Most other recipes use all butter, not like this one that uses 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. Take your choice.
Other recipes don't bake for 5 minutes before putting in the thumbprint. Take your choice.
Some recipes use pecans and some don't use any nuts at all. Take your choice.
A few recipes put the jam in the thumbprint before baking. Take your choice.
None of the other recipes I found used brown sugar. Take your choice.
We always choose to follow Mom's recipe. It would be a sin to do otherwise.
These cookies go by the names of 'Meltaways' or 'Melting Moments'. You can find those recipes on the internet with slightly different directions, but the ingredients are the same. One recipe bakes them at 325 for 20 minutes.
Mom always rolled them into one inch balls. Then she flattened the ball into an oblong shape with a floured fork. She claimed that the ridges held the icing better.
I usually roll them into balls and then flatten them with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
You can ice them with a simple confectioner's icing or a cream cheese icing.
I like to stamp them with a Christmas Cookie design. If you do so, you'll have to sprinkle with colored sugars before baking as the icing will fill in the stamped design.
One Christmas, Regina iced them with the pink icing and then drizzled a few white lines on top in an abstract design.
This was a favorite cookie of Aunt Nettie who lived upstairs from us on Ontario Street.
Mom didn't have butterscotch, so she used chocolate morsels.
She didn't like peanuts, so she skipped them.
You don't actually need the water!
As a matter of fact, you could just follow the recipe for 'Noodle Clusters' on the bag of China Boy Chow Mein Noodles.
These are not just any cookies. These cookies aren’t the least bit cakey or chewy. Gooey really is the best descriptor. Even though these are nothing like a traditional chocolate chip cookie, they still make as one of my top 3 favorite chocolate chip cookies.
These Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cookies are basically Gooey Butter Cake in cookie form with some chocolate chips tossed in.
Great recipe for turkey leftovers
This Monkey Bread isn’t actually toasted…but each piece is dredged in a thick and creamy egg custardy situation, with cinnamon and brown sugar and all that’s good in the world.
Who knows what you’ll do when no one’s watching with something this good around?
Naturally, this can be made with regular whipping cream instead of coffee creamer (but why would you?). I topped mine with a buttery brown sugar mixture, but I wonder what would happen if you used a maple syrup concoction instead, for a more “French Toast” topping flavor? I’m going to find out soon and will let you know!
