Rouse your senses with these
refreshing little cookies!
Zesty Cranberry Pinwheels incorporate the tart sweetness of cranberries
with just the right amount of orange flavor and rich pecans ~ they boast a zesty,
slightly sweet filling. The pinwheels take a little time to make, as the dough
requires chilling time. Other than
that, they’re fairly easy to make; just be sure to tightly roll the dough into
a log. You will love the fragrant aroma that fills the house while they’re
baking. Then, all you need
to is a cup of coffee, or a little cup of tea to enjoy with these delicious holiday
Pinwheels Dough ingredients: ½ cup butter, softened ¾ cup sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1½ cups flour ¼ teaspoon baking powder
Moments, aka Yo-Yo Biscuits, are homemade dainties ~ a buttery fragile cookie
with both a crumbly and creamy texture that literally melts in your mouth.
are a traditional biscuit (cookie) of Australia and New Zealand, which you have
probably seen many versions of all over the Internet. My version is from a combination of many. They
are delicious as is or, with just a dab of frosting, or sandwiched with a creamy
filling. To me, they’re very
similar to Russian Teacakes or Mexican Wedding Cakes, without the chopped
taste as scrumptious as they sound, and only last for a moment!
Melting Moments Ingredients for cookies: 1
cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature 1
teaspoon vanilla 1/3
cup confectioner’s sugar ¾
cup cornstarch 1
Unwrapping all those caramels is the hardest part of this recipe
~ that’s when your assistant comes into play, like Bill did for me. The rest is easy, peasy!
To tell the truth, I didn’t follow directions very well with
this recipe. The bottom is a
sturdy oatmeal base, and then it should be topped with melted caramels,
followed by chocolate chips spread over all. I inadvertently melted the chocolate chips with the caramel,
and I’m guessing it didn’t matter.
In fact the bars might be even better, as they turned out creamy smooth
and delicious, bursting with that great caramel chocolaty flavor. You’ll either need a chain saw or a strong man like my hubby
to cut the cookies into bars ~ it’s a bit of a fight to get that first bar out
of the pan! I suggest lining the
pan with parchment paper, enabling you to remove the whole slab from the pan,
before slicing into bars. They’re a heavenly delightful mouthwatering sweet chewy bar,
best cut small…
In 46 years of being married to Bill, this is a first! Who would’ve thought?
It’s an understatement, to say Bill's not crazy about salmon. So, recently at the fish counter, when he
said, “Buy some salmon fillets,” you could’ve knocked me over with a
feather! Huh??? The man has pretty much refused
salmon of any kind, for any meal, anywhere!
Salmon is way up there on my list of favorites though, no
matter how it’s prepared, and I knew I had to make it especially delicious last
night... And, I did! This
is salmon, the quick and easy way!
The spicy glaze makes it flavorful and delectable. It’s a perfect blend of ingredients, complimenting
the salmon. Hopefully, it will
convert that non-salmon lover in your neck of the woods, like it did Bill!
