Not a very creative title, but there you have it ;)
So I got a couple of requests for the recipes for some of the food pictures I posted last week for Corner View. If you are interested here they are.
For the Ginger cookies:
(From a Martha Stewart recipe. Oh Martha, you do know a good thing don't you?)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/3 cup for coating
6 tablespoons molasses
1 large egg
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, allspice, and pepper.
2.With an electric mixer, cream butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses and egg. With mixer on low, gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic, and freeze for 20 minutes.
3.Divide dough into twelve 2-inch balls. Place remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar in a bowl. Roll balls in sugar to coat; place at least 4 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten into 3-inch rounds. Sprinkle with sugar remaining in bowl.
4.Bake until brown, rotating sheets halfway through, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
For the Aunt Agnes Coffee Cake:
For homemade chips and salsa:
For the chips,
I don't have a recipe for margaritas (if I am going to have one I usually go out to my favorite Mexican restaurant and pair it with a good chile relleno and whole pinto beans!), but I did have some killer homemade ones a few weeks back when my sister and her family came to visit. (I totally didn't blog about this, oops- here are a few photos from that weekend!). My Bro-in-law made Prickly Pear margos-um yeah.
Here is a great link for purchasing the puree and their recipe for the cocktail.
