Cannoli Bites

Cannoli Bites
Make these Cannoli Bites. Devour these Cannoli Bites. That is all I have to say. If you have sweet Marsala wine on hand you can use that in place of the juice and vinegar (so just omit both of those and replace it with 1/2 cup Marsala wine). That first cannoli bite, always mine =). Ingredients Cannoli cups: 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting work surface 2 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar 1 tsp cocoa powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 pinch nutmeg (optional) 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 cup butter, melted 1 large egg white 6 - 8 Tbsp apple juice or grape juice* 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar (red wine vinegar or plain white vinegar would be fine) Vegetable oil cooking spray Cannoli Filling 12 oz whole milk Ricotta cheese, strained 8 oz Mascarpone cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar** 1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips powdered sugar, for dusting (optional) Optional toppings: Melted chocolate, chopped pistachios, sprinkles, toasted sweetened coconut Directions Related:  cookiesmuffin pan food

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Christmas baking can be incredibly nostalgic. Anytime I bake peanut butter blossoms or mini cheesecake cookies, I imagine being about 8 years old, in the kitchen of my old house, watching my mom bake. I can feel the carpet under my toes, I can see the floral painting on the wall, and if I walk around the corner, I can see the silver and blue garland wrapped around the staircase. There are certain recipes that flat-out have to be made during the holidays, or it’s just not Christmas. Then there are cookies and treats that have been made occasionally, but somehow fall through the cracks some years. These peanut butter cup cookies fall into that category, although how that ever happened with me around is absolutely astonishing. This is one of the easiest cookie recipes you’ll find, and it’s one that will have people going crazy. I dare you to try to wait an appropriate amount of time before popping at least two of these in your mouth.

Kale Cups Featured Ingredient Kale According to Mitch from Modern Family, “kale should remain more of a garnish.” Uh, no way! If there was ever a food worthy of its superfood moniker, it would be jaunty kale. In fact, it’s so packed with a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it just might be the nutritional heavyweight of the produce department. Sorry, Mr. Among its nutritional highlights includes a payload of vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin K, that latter of which his necessary for strong bones. These pretty green kale cups make for a wonderful side dish. Kale Cups 1 bunch kale, ribs removed and roughly chopped (8 to 10 cups) 1/2 cup reduced fat ricotta cheese 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 shallot, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon miso, preferably white or yellow (optional) 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes (optional) 3 tablespoons sesame seeds

Fluffernutter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Bars 920 Have I ever talked to you guys about how impatient I am? It's an kind of an issue in my life. I can't stand waiting for things to cook, I especially can not wait for things to cool. If I have a major hankering for something, I do not want to wait. I may be annoying but being married to me has it's perks....because every man wants this, or even some of these.... These are a simple peanut butter cookie bar, topped with dollops of marshmallow fluff and filled with pretzels and chocolate chips. But I can't take credit for this genuineness.... that would all be Chase's big ideas put into play. The kid is smart. Then enters the impatient mother.... who cut the bars straight from the oven so she could eat them all and gain a pant size. Fluffernutter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Bars Ingredients: Directions: Preheat oven to 350. In the bowl of your electric mixer cream sugars and butter together until light and fluffy. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Individual Parmesan Hash Brown Cups I made these hash brown cups to serve at the bridal shower brunch I co-hosted a couple of weeks ago. They accompanied quiche (made by my friend Becky), Mango Fruit Salad Salsa with Sugar and Spice Tortilla Chips, and Make-Ahead Sticky Buns. I love hash browns with a crispy exterior and moist tender interior. Traditional hash browns cooked on top of the stove are difficult to make in a big batch and serve to a crowd. So I tried baking these in individual portions in muffin tins that could be baked in the oven along with the sticky buns and quiche, and would be easy to serve buffet style. By cooking these hash browns in muffin tins, a large part of each individual serving forms a crispy, brown crust around the cup shape of each muffin portion. Use mini muffin pans for bite-size morsels. Step 1. You also need shredded potatoes. Step 2. Step 3. view on Amazon: my nesting mixing bowl set Step 4. Step 5. view on Amazon: Step 6. Step 7.
