loved the recipe but instead of water and beef boullion i simply added a can of beef broth.
like others, i should have read the reviews first.
whole family loved this recipe. so much so that i printed it for my recipe box. i did cheat though .. instead of chicken breast halves i bought chicken tenders, which made for a lot less cutting.
this was so good it's just wrong!!! i couldn't believe the difference that using ricotta instead of cream cheese would make! yummy, foolproof recipe that i will definitely use again!
i can't eat the artificial crab meat since i saw how they made it, so i used 2 cans of real crab meat. after reading the other reviews, i also added a little more tobasco sauce and used garlic salt instead of regular salt. it turned out really well, and i think next time i might try 1 can of crab and 1 can of salad shrimp.
I made this tonight with some of the same tweaks that other people used. I substituted onion powder for the paprika and used only one can of crab and left out the water chestnuts because we don't like them. They were delicious. I used a small cookie dough scoop to fill them, and water to seal the edges and didn't have a problem with them breaking or leaking.
i wasn't sure about the cranberry/mayo/jalapeno combination so i went for sweet and left those out and sprinkled a little grated white chocolate before sealing them up. very nice for the holidays.
this recipe was wonderful as it is but i tried a variation with ground beef, onions and mushrooms and it was very nice as well. loved it!
i make these with bacon instead of sausage sometimes and they're great too. these are a regular with the scrambled eggs for our sunday breakfast. to save time i usually make the night before and then just fry up in the morning!
i thought this was ok, but too watery, not enough beans. i had to add beans to the leftovers. next time i'll add another can of whole black beans and maybe a can of refried beans to thicken it up.
My grandmother, who is Scottish, made these cookies with us when we were little. She did not put cherries on them, but instead cut smaller holes in half of the cookies that were going on top. This isn't quite the same as the traditional empire biscuits we grew up on but very nice none the less.
Aside from the grammatically incorrect name, these were okay. I agree that the number of servings was off for us. And as my Scottish grandmother would say .. "Scotch is a drink, those from Scotland are Scottish!"
