I had a bag of those red cinnamon candies left over from Valentine's day, so chose this recipe to use them up. My sister and I made these together, cutting down the recipe. We loved them topped with some whip cream!
I had a few friends in for a visit and wanted to make something to serve. This cake was perfect. Everyone loved it! The frosting was extra yummy and added to the deliciousness of the cake. I think I used about 1/4 cup more nuts then called for but it just made it taste all the better!
Made for Pick Me Tag - Making this recipe was about making a lime dessert for Siggi because he loves them, but it became a mission of determination. I do favor using convenience foods, but I got no help in that regard. Both the frozen limeade concentrate & the pre-made pie shells are not sold here, but I was stubborn. I found a recipe for the concentrate on-line & made my own pie crust using 1 of Derf's recipes that has never failed me. My pie plate is very shallow. Worried about overflow, I divided the recipe into 2 pies using my shallow pie plate & 2nd smaller one that's meant to serve 2. All that said, we love this pie! After enjoying the sml pie, I suggested we freeze the lrg pie for a guest occasion & Siggi nixed the idea saying he wasn't sharing it w/anyone! Thx to you at least for sharing the recipe w/us. Yum! -- Forgot to mention I sprinkled dried mint over the whipped cream. It would've been so pretty w/real mint leaves, but that's a summer crop for us. :-)
Made for the DH for his smoko (morning and afternoon tea breaks) and he very much enjoyed the filling but felt the pastry was too thin and a little tough, that may have been my fault it being tough as I left it in the fridge longer than I should have and it was very hard to roll, he has requested I make it again but in a small slice pan so the pastry will be thicker. I got 15 good size squares out of it.
We love this. This is a very flavorful and fruity dessert. We used granny smith apples. We cooked it for 45 minutes and that seemed perfect. Ours stuck to the pan even though we greased and floured our pan. Serving with vanilla ice cream is a definite must.
Strawberries are very popular in Iceland. Grown in hothouses & imported, we luckily get them yr-round. They're also Siggi's favorite fresh fruit & have been on-sale at our grocery store. Making this easy-fix recipe for our family brunch dessert today was fated to happen. Except for only applying the powdered sugar glaze to the inside of the tortilla, I made them as written & assembled them right at the table one-by-one. No one waited for the others to be served. My SIL asked for the recipe, I gave it to her & she was amazed at it's simplicity. Thx for sharing this taste treat recipe w/us. - Edited to Add that this would be so pretty w/chopped fresh mint leaves added to the strawberries & then used as garnish. :-)
Very good cake -- amount of lemon zest is not indicated but I figured both the juice and zest were just from one lemon. I did have a bit more trouble than usual with the conversions but the cake came out delicious, so the conversions were close if not exact! Thanks for sharing!
Awesome dessert, quick and easy with excellent results. The pears were perfect, tender and flavorful, we loved the caramel. I garnished with raspberry yogurt and pieces of pecan as I was out of almonds. Thanks so much for sharing this winner Teresa. made FYC tag game.
I was wanting a quick and easy raisin bar and this fit the bill. I did not have the size pan called for, so used a 9x13. These bars do not taste too sweet, which we like. The raisins are plump and juicy with just the right amount of spices. Thanks Teresa for sharing!
My sister came over today and I wanted to make something sweet to share with her. She liked it so much she went home with half of it! We loved the glaze and it was perfect on this bread. This will be made many times more!
