UF2.0 Cook Book ~ Planning meals on a tight budget! Post your Recipe!

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:41 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ive seen a lot of good recipes posted in the "whats for dinner" thread in both the old and new UFF.

I think this would be a great resource for those looking for new ideas for meals on the cheap.

Please try and limit the discussions to only recipes etc and use the "Whats for dinner" thread for more generalized food chat comments

Happy sharing!! And good eating!

Thanks Joan!

It's funny that you suggested that because I just bought the ingredients to make Lentil Soup! Great minds think alike!

Mary Kay, from the Food Network....I use this recipe for my cookie press.

Butter Spritz Cookies

Ingredients
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups sifted flour
Sprinkles for garnish

Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixer with a paddle attachment, add the sugar and the butter. Mix until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extracts and mix to incorporate. Sift together the baking powder and the flour. Add the flour mixture. Mix until combined. Using a cookie press, press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheets. Top with the sprinkles of your choice. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until firm, but not yet browning

MaryKay,
Wilton's Butter Press Cookie recipe is great too, more old shcool

Classic Spritz Cookies
Classic Spritz Cookies are an easy way to add variety to a tray of cookies. A cookie press lets you change disks to produce many different shapes. Serve them plain, sprinkled with decorations or sugars, frosted or dipped in melted candy!

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups butter softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon no-color almond extract

Makes:
7-8 dozen cookies.
Tools:
Cookie Press
Easy-Add Cookie PressAdd to shopping list Cookie Press

Cookie Sheet
Easy-Add Cookie SheetAdd to shopping list Cookie Sheet

Cooling Grid
Easy-Add Cooling GridAdd to shopping list Cooling Grid


Instructions:
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Step 2
In bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, vanilla and almond extract; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat until combined. Do not chill. Fill cookie press with dough and with desired disks, press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Step 3
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet on cooling rack. Remove from sheet; cool completely.

I love lentil soup! Maybe I'll have to stop by. And then maybe Stevie will give us some cookies if we make the coffee...?

Marian, another thing I just thought of is the white chicken chili that my neighbor makes. It's really delicous and rib-sticking too. Not sure how you could lighten it up, though...wonder what kind of veggies would be good in that...?

Joan you have the best recipes. Marian, everything Joan posts is really good. Not only is it hard to make ends meet, but I don't know about you guys, I am just sick of everything, same old thing. Joan's recipes and all members have really been a hit.

superstevies, you are the bestest. I love this recipe and I was sick when I realized I must have tossed it with the cookie press when it died.

Saturday is baking day. Thanks much. Hoping you are as well as can be expected. Miss seeing you here!

Good morning all. Hoping everyone is well and getting into the Christmas Spirit!! It's hard, but sometimes something as simple as baking or making a meal can get you some pleasure.

Any new recipes, please share. We love new ones and everyone loves to try them.

I am going to attempt to bake this evening. Going to try the cookie press recipe (without the cookie press, mine died). I will let you know.

I was never able to get them right either Joan. The recipe call for baking them in the old fashion metal ice cube trays? Like I might be able to find them now days. I have a friend who is making them on Thursday, it's their family tradition, if all is well with Dad, I am going over for a lesson, I will definitely report back.

Hope you are well Joan.

I had just posted a recipe here, it somehow disappeared, so I will repost, if anyone posted after this, I am sorry, please re-create your post.

Fingerlickin Chicken

6 boneless chicken breasts
1 bottle of red french salad dressing
2 pkgs of lipton onion soup mix
2 cans of cranberry sauce

Place all of the dressings in a greased crock pot, place the chicken in and push down so it's all covered. Turn on low and cook for 8 hrs. Fork shred the chicken, turn crock to serve and you are finished.

We use this for sandwiches, like we do with pulled pork, or with rice or noodles.
