Macarons with Rhubarb Strawberry Filling

I love to make macarons for the sheer pleasure of their delicate feminine appearance. During peony season I have pink tucked everywhere and it even filters into what I do in the kitchen. If you are terrified of making macarons there are so many good youtube videos and thorough instructions available online. I'm going to give you my few hints that work well for me. First of all, I would not attempt to make macarons without a kitchen scale. A kitchen scale is not expensive and I also use it…

Amy's Date and Nut Bars

This is my daughter's recipe and it uses whole foods and natural sugars coming from the dried fruit. I will share with you today two versions to show how easy it is to switch things up and add whatever you wish. The nuts don't have to be toasted but they do add a depth of flavor if they are. Each variation makes one loaf pan cut into bars. Coconut Date Bars: (Top Bar) 1 cup of toasted nuts (1/2 each of almonds and cashews) 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 2 cups of medjool dates 2…

Big Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

There have been many versions of oatmeal raisin cookies here over the years since they happen to be hubby's favorite, but this is my tried-and-true old stand by! We eat a few fresh from the oven and the rest go into the freezer. Did you know they taste every bit as good straight from the freezer? Oatmeal raisin cookies and a good cup of coffee...the perfect treat anytime of day! 1 cup butter 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 3/4 cups flour 3 cups old fashioned oats…

Caramel Pecan Shortbread Bars

'Tis the season to indulge in holiday sweets. Today I pulled out a recipe which was sent to me by my sister-in-law during the Christmas season many years ago, and has always been a hit! How can you go wrong? They are rather like having homemade turtles on a shortbread base. Crust: 1/2 cup icing sugar (confectioner's sugar) 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 tablespoon whipping cream 1 cup flour Filling: 30 vanilla caramels, wrappers removed (1 small package Kraft caramels 269 gr) 1/3 cup whipping…

Festive Refrigerator Cookies

Here is another refrigerator cookie to add to your collection. I make these at Christmas and if you cut the cherries into a little larger pieces, these cookie slices will add some colour to your Christmas cookie tray. The nuts you use will change up the flavour. I'm not sure which I like better, using the almonds or using the pecans. They are both great! 1 cup soft unsalted butter 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups flour 1 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds 1/2 cup…

Peanut Fudge

Recently my kids gifted me with a fun little package of fudge they purchased on their trip and it piqued my interest to go back to some of my old recipes that I'd not made in a long time. This peanut fudge is super easy to make. The original recipe calls for ground peanuts, but I decided to try it with regular peanut butter. Let's just say I'll have to hide it from view before I eat too much. Ingredients: 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup cream 1 1/2 cups peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) 1 teaspoon…

Gumdrop Oatmeal Cookies

Gumdrop cookies are a favorite of mine. I haven't baked them in years and suddenly had a yearning for them. A great addition to a cookie platter. It was difficult finding baking gums, one store was still waiting on their order, another didn't carry them but finally I found a store that had them. You can use gumdrops but they are larger and will need to be cut up into smaller pieces. 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar 1 egg 1 tablespoon water 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup flour…

Toffee Nut Refrigerator Cookies

I love refrigerator cookies. You can find many recipes with endless flavour combinations. What I like is that you can mix them one day, store the shaped dough in the refrigerator and slice and bake them the next day. I recently made this version and I'll make it again. The toffee bits in them seemed to mellow and make the cookie even more flavourful several days later. 1 cup soft butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 1/2 cups flour 1/4 teaspoon…

Apple-Raspberry Bars

Today is Halloween and I'm sharing a treat instead of a trick. These bars have a nice shortbread like base with an almond flavor. I saw this recipe in my grocery store flyer and cut down on the sugar and spices from the original recipe. Ingredients: 1 cup all purpose flour 1 cup almond meal 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled 1 egg 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 teaspoon almond extract 2 large apples, cored, peeled, and…
