Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies
1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup pecans, chopped
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup corn syrup
2 eggs
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large non-stick pan, combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs.
Cook on the stove top over medium-low heat just until thickened. (You don't want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding).
Remove from heat and set aside.
Unroll dough and using a 3" cookie cutter, cut out circles.
Gently fold about ⅛-1/4" up on the edges.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.
Place on a parchment lined pan (it's important to line it) and bake 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
Place chocolate chips in a small Ziploc bag (use brand name, the store brands tend to leak). 
Microwave about 15 seconds or until mostly melted. 
Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over the cookies. Cool

    for the dough
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • for the filling
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • for the topping
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (feel free to add more pecans to taste)
  1. In the bowl of your mixer, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Heat milk to 120 degrees and stir in butter, butter does not have to melt. Using the beater attachment of your mixer, stir in milk to flour mixture until well combined. Add in eggs, one at a time. Gradually add in remaining flour until a soft dough forms. Switch to dough hook or knead by hand for 7-8 minutes. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm location until doubled in size.
  2. Prepare topping. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat until just below boiling and all sugar is melted. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over topping. Set pan aside.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 18 x 15 inch rectangle. Brush melted butter over entire surface. Combine sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle evenly over dough. Spread pecans in the same manner, coating evenly. Starting on a short side, roll dough, jelly roll style. Pinch seam to secure. Cut dough into 12 even slices approximately 1 1/4 inch thick. Place rolls, cut side down in prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled and spaces between rolls are no longer visible. (at this point you can also place in the refrigerator for baking later) Once rolls are risen, remove plastic wrap and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and let sit for one minute. Cover cooling rack or large tray with foil, then carefully invert rolls onto foil. PLease use caution. CARAMEL IS EXTREMELY HOT AND CAN BURN YOU. Remove pan and let rolls sit for 5 minutes before serving.

A fun and easy twist on traditional apple pie
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12-16 egg rolls
  • 2 apples, 1 granny smith and 1 gala (about 2 heaping cups worth)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon all spice
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 16 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • cinnamon, to sprinkle on top
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Peel and chop up apples. Put chopped apples in a medium bowl and add remaining filling ingredients to bowl and stir together until well combined. Allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. Place one egg roll wrapper onto a clean surface. Using a clean finger, brush edges of the egg roll wrapper with egg wash.
  4. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the filling across one side of the prepared egg roll wrapper. You do not want to over stuff these.
  5. Fold the sides over and brush with egg wash. Carefully roll filling tightly in the wrapper and press gently to seal.
  6. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and coat with a thin layer of cooking spray. Repeat until all the filling and wrappers have been used.
  7. Bake egg rolls for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. During the last 5 minutes of cook time, pull out and brush with a little melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top. Put back in oven for remaining 5 minutes. Serve immediately with sweetened whipped cream.
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream until it starts to thicken. As the mixture thickens, slowly add sugar until fully incorporated. Add vanilla and whip until stiff peaks form. I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top as well.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all purpose flour

2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
Optional Decorative Garnishes
roasted pecans, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Butter and flour a 10” bundt cake pan (or use nonstick-spray with flour in it). Set aside.**
To make the Cream Cheese Filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in remaining Filling Ingredients until smooth. Set Aside.
In a large bowl, mix all of the Dry Ingredients together. In a separate bowl, gently whisk eggs then stir in remaining Wet Ingredients just until combined. Don't overmix.
Stir Wet Ingredients into Dry Ingredients just until moistened, then stir in carrots until evenly combined (I use my clean hands to stir in the carrots).
Spoon 3 cups batter into prepared bundt cake pan. Spoon Cream Cheese Filling over batter and gently smooth, but do not touch the sides of the pan. Top with remaining batter.
Bake at 350F degrees for 45 minutes, cover with foil then reduce heat to 325 and bake an additional 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Add sifted powdered sugar and beat until very smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Place the frosting in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes before using.

Recipe from JEN at Carlsbad Cravings
*To easily shred carrots, use the grater on your food processor. If you don't have the grater blade, you can also finely chop in your food processor.
**When "flouring" my pan, I use cocoa powder instead of flour because the cake is brown.
***Your cream cheese layer may not be as thick as the picture all the way around - I chose the thickest slice MODERATION makes sure you ENJOY this cake more!

The rumored recipe for Neiman Marcus cookies,

The $250 Neiman Marcus Cookie

Yield: 30 cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
The rumored recipe for Neiman Marcus cookies, which was passed around via email for years, and later debunked by the company. These cookies are made with ground oats, chocolate chips, grated chocolate and chopped walnuts.


2½ cups rolled oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
4 ounces milk chocolate, grated or finely chopped
1½ cups chopped walnuts


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Blend the oats in a food processor or blender to a fine powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together the blended oats with the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. With a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate and walnuts.
4. Roll the dough into 2-ounce balls (or about 2 heaping tablespoonfuls worth) and place about 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake one sheet at a time until the edges are set but the center still looks undone, about 10 minutes. Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheets. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days (they can also be frozen for up to 2 months).

homenade Egg Noodles

Borrowed and sharing

Gerald DavistoSmokey Joe's Yummy Recipes
Homemade Egg Noodles
2 cups flour (all purpose)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 medium eggs
1/4 cup water
In a large bowl combine the flour and salt. Make a hole in the flour, like a well. Crack the eggs into the hole. Using you hands or large spoon mash the eggs and flour together making a coarse and crumbly mixture. Add the water. Mix again until you have a nice, stiff dough. Knead the dough a few minutes to get it nice and smooth (5-10 min.) You may need to dust it with a little flour to keep it from sticking to your hands. When you are satisfied with your ball of noodle dough cover it with a tea towel and let it rest for about 20 minutes. This is to relax the gluten in the dough, making it easier to roll out.
Use a rolling pin and a floured surface roll dough out real thin, as the noodles will poof out when they cook. Cut into strips or the the shape you want. Let the noodles rest and dry for about 20-30 min if you can. Cook in a broth that's boiling and then reduce to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
PLEASE REMEMBER EVERY ONE! Share & Put a comment when you see a recipe, Thanks ! ? ?
