I mixed up the butter and sugars together, and then I added it to the ice cream and froze it tightly in a container. I had already tasted the mixture and I thought it was delicious. I was very surprised when I added it to my coffee, both with and without the rum, and the flavor was very bland. I added more of the mixture to make it sweeter, but I was really disappointed especially after reading all the great reviews. Maybe I should have tried it in cocoa to increase the rich quality of the ice cream. Sorry, but I won't make this again...
Thanks, Diane, for a delicious apple crisp! I did end up having to increase the butter when I spread the crumbly topping over the apples. Without the extra butter, it would have been too dry. Otherwise, it was very good. I cut the recipe down for just my husband and myself. My husband was very disappointed when he realized I had eaten the leftovers the next day. I guess I'd better make more the next time so we can both have seconds!
These cookies are an old favorite that I hadn't made in years. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I added chocolate chips and almond extract to the cookies. I could taste the sweet crunchy flavor and texture of the cookies, but they were really too sweet for me. Next time, I may trying adding sifted cocoa to the recipe to increase the flavor and make it a little less sweet.
Wow! These chewy spicy cookies were terrific! I followed the recipe closely, but I added 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg for more flavor. I chilled the cookie dough overnight, and they came out soft and chewy after baking. I took them to a church event, and everyone who tried one said they were delicious. Even my fussy son who prefers chocolate chip cookies liked these. He took all the leftover gingersnaps back to college with him. Yum!
Thanks Laura for sharing your Mom's very tasty rum cake! I mistakenly added the rum glaze to the bottom of the cake instead of the top. When I turned the cake upright onto a platter, I realized my mistake. I felt I should redeem myself by making more glaze for the top of the cake or no one would be able to taste the rum. Well, obviously doubling the glaze is not necessarily a bad thing, because I had more compliments on that cake than any other I've ever made! Several friends asked if they could take a slice home. I refrigerated my leftover slice and had it the next morning with my coffee. YUM! I liked it even better when it was cold. Yes, I'll be making this one again.
Oh yeah, this is the best lemon ice cream I'm sure I'll ever eat!! Instead of using a food processor, I grated the lemon zest on a hand grater. Much easier. I used the juice and zest from two lemons, and it was perfect. It was so good, in fact, that I didn't share with my family! They'll have to make their own ice cream...
Great flavor! I got a lot of compliments on the sweetness of this cake when I brought it to a family cookout. I was a little disappointed when I couldn't taste any of the tequila though. I subbed 2/3 c. orange juice for the water for extra flavor. Next time, I'll increase the tequila from 1/4 to 1/2 cup. I added 1/2 c. chopped pecans to the batter, and it was delicious! I may cut the amount of conf. sugar in the glaze the next time I make this cake. It was a little too sweet for me. I'll definitely be making this cake again!
One of my new favorite soups! Even though I used diced canned tomatoes and dried herbs, I thought this soup was rich tasting. I mixed mild and hot sausage together to add a little more heat to the broth. I used a cheap red wine, and I don't think it made any difference in flavor. I also subbed 1 can tomato soup for the sauce because that's what I had. I used green beans instead of zucchini to save a trip to the store. Quick to put together and good enough for guests! Add some crusty French or Italian bread, and you've got a delicious meal for a cold nights' dinner. Thanks, Mary!
What more can you say about a bread that is delicious and takes very little prep time?! The only change I made was to melt 1/2 stick of margarine and pour it over the unbaked bread dough. The butter gave the crust a very rich and crunchy texture. I've made this several times because of its ease in putting it together. Thanks, BLChrisman!
Thanks for the terrific recipe, Jerry! I quickly added the ingredients to my crockpot, and I turned it on Low for an hour or so. I doubled the recipe to make enough for about 11 at my bunco group last night. They loved it, and I had some left over to add to butter pecan ice cream tonight. This recipe met all my needs: delicious, easy, and quick!
I just made this today, and everyone in my family enjoyed the rich flavor! Instead of biscuits, which is traditional in the South, I added some pre-cooked bowtie pasta to the gravy. Very tasty, Rhonda. Next time, I may add a veggie to turn it into a complete meal. A new favorite!
I follow this recipe exactly, but I chose to double the oatmeal topping because it didn't look like there would be enough for both a bottom and top crust. I made this while visiting my in-laws, and they loved it! I used fresh blueberries, and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe, Polly!
