White Velvet Cutout Cookieswhite velvet cutouts

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Frosting:

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 4 – 5 tablespoons 2% milk
  • food coloring (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla.  Gradually beat flour into the creamed mixture.  Divide the dough in half.  Shape each into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to roll.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness.  Cut with floured cookie cutters.  Place 1-inch apart on greased cookie sheets.  Bake 10 – 12 minutes until set.  (do not brown) Cool on pan for 5 minutes then remove from pan to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  3. For the frosting, in a bowl, beat the butter, shortening and vanilla until creamy.  Beat in the confectioners sugar and enough milk to reach a spreading consistency.  Continue to beat for 3 minutes until light and fluffy.  If desired, seperate into smaller bowls and beat in food coloring.  Frost the cookies.  Apply sprinkles if desired before the frosting sets.

Tip:  Keep frosting covered with a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.

Extra Points:  Ever try using a new squirt bottle (like for mustard or ketchup) to frost your cookies?  Allows you to draw using frosting.  Lots of fun!

Makes about 5 1/2 dozen cookies.

Enjoy!

This recipe is a little like making soup.  Just throw in a little bit of everything holidayish.  Even though I’m not a huge pumpkin fan, I like these flavorful bites!

Pumpkin Delight Magic Bars     pumpkin delight magic bars

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (11 oz.) vanilla wafers
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Place vanilla wafers in a food processor;  pulse until coarse crumbs form.  Or do it the old fashioned way and put them in a zip-lock bag and pound them into crumbs.  (Much more satisfying)  Drizzle with melted butter and pulse until blended.  Press into bottom of a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, milk and pie spice until smooth.  Beat in the pumpkin.  Pour all over the crust.  Layer with coconut, white chocolate chips, cranberries and pecans.
  3. Bake for 45 – 55 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pan.
  4. Loosen from the sides of the pan with a knife.  Cut into bars.

Makes 2 dozen bars.

Enjoy!

Salisbury steaks have been popular at my house for years and years.  This is a new version using turkey rather than beef.  It may be the one asked for by your family too.

Turkey Salisbury Steaks     turkey salisbury steak

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs, divided use
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons A-1 Steak Sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil

For the sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon A-1 Steak Sauce
  • 1 can/jar (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs, onion, Worchestershire sauce, steak sauce, garlic and seasonings.  Add ground turkey; mix lightly but thoroughly.  Shape into four 1/2 inch thick oval patties.  Place remaining bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.  Press patties into the bread crumbs, pressing to coat each patty.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat.  Add the patties and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and center reaches 165ºF.  Remove from the pan.
  3. In the same pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.  Stir in the flour until smooth.  Whisk in the beef broth, Worchestershire sauce and steak sauce.  Bring to a boil stirring constantly for 1 or 2 minutes until thickened.  Stir in the drained mushrooms.  Return the turkey patties to the pan.  Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes until patties are heated through.

Makes 4 servings.

Enjoy!

This is another one of those recipes that because of the fancy name people think it must be really complicated to make.  Truth is, it’s not difficult at all.  Plus, having a good hollandaise sauce added to your tool box is a huge thing.  Secret to great flavor here is not skimping on the sauce.

Easy Eggs Benedict        eggs benedict

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • dash white pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 English muffins
  • 8 slices Canadian bacon, warmed
  • paprika

Directions:

  1. For the hollandaise sauce, in the top of a double boiler or in a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks, water and lemon juice until blended.  Cook mixture, whisking continuously, until it is just thick enough to coat a spoon and the temperature reaches a safe 160ºF.  Remove from the heat.
  2. Very slowly, whisk in the melted butter and then whisk in the pepper.  Float bowl in a large bowl of warm water.  Keep warm, stirring occasionally until ready to serve.
  3. To poach the eggs, place 2-3 inches of water in a saucepan.  Being the water to a boil and then reduce heat to a gentle, constant simmer.  Break an egg into a small bowl.  Holding the bowl very close to the surface of the simmering water, slip the egg gently into the water.  Do this for 3 more eggs.
  4. Cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes or until the whites are completely set and the yolks begin to thicken.  Use a slotted spoon to remove each egg from the water and repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
  5. Toast and butter the English muffins.  Warm the Canadian bacon.
  6. To serve, place the English muffin on a plate.  Top wth a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg and 2 tablespoons of sauce.  Sprinkle with paprika.
  7. Serve immediately.  Makes 8 servings.

Enjoy!
