All the recipes sound delightful, and thanks Melvira for making the file of them, I will add mine later.



Frstech...I was never sure(got this recipe over 20 years ago from a 90ish -year old Scottish lady)...I THINK it's "fruit sugar"..saw some in a store once years ago...it's supposed to be coarser than confectioner's ,but finer than granulated...I used to "grind" granulated a bit in my blender icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif ..in the last few years I've just been using regular granulated.....works fine..



I was intrigued by this 'berry sugar so did a little research. Here's what I found on Wikipedia, interesting... Looks like you were right, iownajane!

Granulated sugar comes in various crystal sizes â for home and industrial use â depending on the application:

Coarse-grained sugars, such as sanding sugar (also called "pearl sugar", "decorating sugar", nibbed sugar or sugar nibs) adds "sparkle" and flavor for decorating to baked goods, candies, cookies/biscuits and other desserts. The sparkling effect occurs because the sugar forms large crystals which reflect light. Sanding sugar, a large-crystal sugar, serves for making edible decorations. It has larger granules that sparkle when sprinkled on baked goods and candies and will not dissolve when subjected to heat.
Normal granulated sugars for table use: typically they have a grain size about 0.5 mm across
Finer grades result from selectively sieving the granulated sugar
caster (or castor[20]) (0.35 mm), commonly used in baking
superfine sugar, also called baker's sugar, berry sugar, or bar sugar â favored for sweetening drinks or for preparing meringue
Finest grades
Powdered sugar, 10X sugar, confectioner's sugar (0.060 mm), or icing sugar (0.024 mm), produced by grinding sugar to a fine powder. The manufacturer may add a small amount of anticaking agent to prevent clumping â either cornstarch (1% to 3%) or tri-calcium phosphate.


Thanks, everyone, for sharing all of these yummy sounding recipes!

Fiddlesticks- Yes, you can make them anytime now! I usually just do one of two things to freeze them- a tupperware container with wax paper dividing the layers (I use a really old piece my mom gave me- not sure if there was anything special about it- doubting it, since I know it's intentional use is for marinating!). The other way I've frozen them is to just to stick them into ziploc freezer bags- either 1 gal or 2 gal in flat layers. Nothing special!! Enjoy!! I've got mine made and keep stealing them out of the freezer!!!

Eggnog cookies instructions...."make the cookie dough"?

Do you just throw everything in the bowl and mix it all together at once or are there more specific instructions?

It sounds good and DH loves eggnog so I want to make sure I do it right.

Thanks.

What, that's not specific enough for you? Hehehehe.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say, Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs, nog, and vanilla until combined. Add dry ingredients and stir to combine. That is a typical cookie formula. If that's wrong, please correct me and I will learn to shut my big, fat yap someday! hehehehe (Don't hold your breath for that!!) icon_lol.gif

Thanks, that sounds good. Although throwing it all in the bowl at once and turning on the mixer sounded easier, icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Seriously, though, do cookie recipes tend to have 1/2 cup of liquid in addition to the butter and vanilla? Is that why the baking time is so long on this one?
post #220 of 302
Seriously, 300 degree oven, folks!!! That is part of it. And Melvira is right, wet together, dry together, mix together *don't over-mix* whatever THAT means, and for THAT long!!! Just until the bottom is starting to turn golden brown. They are SUPER yummy!
