More Recipes

Philly M has risen to the challenge! Philly says of her recipe:

"These cookies never fail. They are studded with intense bursts of candied ginger, the applesauce keeps them chewy and the sugar on the outside makes a nice little crunch. The batch makes about 40 cookies - easier for sharing with your buddies on the line than 12 muffins."


Blend together: 3/4 cup sugar1/2 cup applesauce 1/4 cup vegetable oil

When smooth, add:
1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
1 tablespoon grated ginger root
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pour above into a well in the middle of these sifted ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Stir in: 3/4 cup chopped crystalized ginger

The dough will be stiff. Chill for a few hours. Scoop the dough, one teaspoon at a time, and roll each scoop into a ball shape between your hands (you may want to flour your hands - keep the dough cool while working if possible). Toss the ball around in a little bowl of sugar to coat. Place on a lightly greased pan, flatten slightly with a fork, or even better, the bottom of a plastic spool of thread (it'll look like a flower). Bake for about 15 minutes in a 350F oven. Cool on racks... serve with the beverage of your choice (I'm partial to a dram of Ardbeg and some tea, myself).

Not to be outdone, Matt Watts has responded to the Lock Out Food Challenge by unveiling his famous pie. Now if only he would tell us how to bake it...
Dan Misener writes: "I don't have any great recipes to share (Tim Hortons and KD are staples in my diet), but I know two gentlemen who do: Mat and Dave from Let's Get Baked with Mat and Dave."
Soon to come... a recipe from everyone's favourite Tessa (he typed optimistically...) :-)
