Walnut Rounds


With a Taste Reminiscent of Rich Shortbread

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 egg yolk, from a large egg
1/4 TSP. salt
1 TSP. vanilla
2-1/2 cups sifted flour
1-1/4 cups finely chopped walnuts

DIRECTIONS:

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and vanilla until thoroughly blended and fluffy. With a wooden spoon, gradually mix in the flour, then the nuts. Chill for 1/2 an hour or so.

On a floured pastry cloth, with a floured stockinette-covered rolling pin, roll out 1/4 of the dough at a time so that it is about 1/4″ thick.

Keep remaining dough refrigerated. Cut out with a 2″ round cookie cutter. Place about 1″ apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in a pre-heated 350° oven until lightly browned – about 10 minutes. While still warm, roll in extra confectioners’ sugar. Cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container between sheets of wax paper. Makes about 5 dozen.

Caramelized Pork Tacos w/ Pineapple Salsa

DSC_9996Oh Tacos. So difficult for me to try to photograph yet so delicious that I can’t help but share.

Tacos are one of my favorite things to make when you’re tight on time. They’re always a crowd pleaser and as you can see with this recipe, the flavor combos are endless. This particular recipe is a new favorite of ours.DSC_9989

 Last week we shared the recipe for the Pineapple Cucumber salsa which is totally a great salsa to make not just for tacos but for chips, a topping for fish, and eating by itself.
As you learned last week, the salsa is incredibly easy to make. These tacos, even though the process involves heat, aren’t that much harder to make. Check it out:

It’s been several years since we’ve had a new post here on ‘At Grandma’s Table‘. I recently ran across this old family recipe and being that it’s one of the EASIEST cookie recipes I’ve ever used, I felt compelled to share it here. I hope you enjoy!

This recipe is from my Mother’s friend, Vida. She was a great cook, baker and homemaker. As kids, we always enjoyed a trip over to Vida’s house! Here’s her recipe for Coconut Macaroons:

INGREDIENTS:
1-1/2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 TSP. almond flavoring

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 325°
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on to greased cookie sheet. Bake until brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet. Remove with metal spatula and cool completely on wire rack.

COOKING TIP:
Even on a well-greased cookie sheet, these cookies will tend to stick a bit. If you use a newer or ‘bright’ cookie sheet, they will be a little easier to remove. Parchment paper is a good option to eliminate the sticking.
