Oatmeal Fudge Cookies

Rate this post

Ingrients & Directions

3 c Rolled oats
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 c Nuts, chopped (optional)
2 c Sugar, granulated
1/2 c Cocoa powder
1/2 c Evaporated milk
1/4 lb Butter

Combine oats, vanilla and nuts in a bowl and set aside.

Combine sugar, cocoa and evaporated milk in a heavy, 2-quart sauce pan.
Bring to a full rolling boil over medium-high heat, STIRRING CONSTANTLY.
Let boil, while stirring, for 2 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and add the butter. Stir until butter is melted and
incorporated. Quickly add oat mixture to pan and stir until well mixed.

Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper. Let cool for 2 hours to set.


* No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies — This may be my all-time favorite
cookie recipe. I don’t remember where I got this particular version of the
recipe but I remember my great-aunt making these cookies for us as kids.

* My great-aunt never put nuts in these cookies. I like nuts but I find
that they get lost in the recipe. If you want the oats to be less
prominent, use quick-cooking oats. They will fall apart somewhat in the
final mixing.

* A heavy sauce pan makes burning the fudge less likely but stir, stir,
stir, anyway.

* The cooking time at boil is important. Cooked too little the cookies
will not set; too much and they start to harden before you get them out of
the pan.

* These cookies are better the next day, if there are any left.

Potato Cakes With Chicken Livers And Fromage

Rate this post

Ingrients & Directions

1 1/2 c Fromage blanc
1 tb Finely chopped chives
1 tb Finely chopped parsley
1 ts Finely chopped tarragon
1 1/2 ts Finely minced shallot; first
-rinsed in
Cold water; and dried well
1 tb Olive oil
1 1/2 ts Red-wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground
Coarse salt
2 lb Yukon gold potatoes
5 tb Unsalted butter; room temp
Butter for molds
Salt and fresh ground white
1 lb Chicken livers; trimmed,
Salt and freshly ground
3 tb Unsalted butter
1 tb Finely chopped shallots
2 tb Sherry vinegar
=== SALAD ===
Salad greens
Salt and freshly ground
Olive oil
Sherry vinegar

To make the Herbed Fromage Blanc: In a medium bowl, whisk together the
fromage blanc, herbs, shallot, olive oil, and vinegar. Season with salt and
pepper. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 2 hours before
serving. To make the Potato Cakes: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread an even
1/2-inch-thick layer of coarse salt in the bottom of an ovenproof skillet
large enough to hold the potatoes. Arrange potatoes in the skillet. Place
skillet in the oven, and bake 1 hour 10 minutes; the potatoes should give
easily when squeezed. Remove potatoes from the skillet, and let cool 5
minutes. While the potatoes are cooling, arrange six double layers of foil
(each about 4-inches square) on a baking sheet. Butter six 3- by 3/4-inch
round ring molds; place one on each square of foil. To get the best texture
from the potatoes, you must work with them while they’re hot. Peel the
potatoes, and place in a wooden bowl. Add 4 tablespoons butter, and crush
the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Spoon the potato mixture into
the molds, mounding them a little on the tops. Place a large saute pan over
medium heat. Add the remaining tablespoon butter, and cook until hot.
Lifting the foil squares, transfer potato cakes to pan, and invert cakes
into hot butter. Cook cakes on both sides just until golden, about 3 to 5
minutes per side. Return the cooked cakes to baking sheet to keep warm. To
make the Chicken Livers: Rinse the chicken livers under cold running water,
and pat them dry between paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Melt 1
tablespoon butter in a saute pan over high heat. When the butter is hot,
add livers. Cook 2 minutes on one side. Turn over, and immediately add the
shallot; cook 2 minutes more. Add vinegar, and boil 1 minute. Remove pan
from heat. Reduce heat to low, and return pan to heat with remaining 2
tablespoons butter. To assemble the Salad: Place salad greens in a large
bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Dress with a little olive oil and
vinegar. For each serving, place a spoonful of fromage blanc on top of a
hot, crisp potato cake, and adorn the fromage blanc with the chicken
livers. Drizzle the chicken livers with the pan sauce, and put a small
mound of salad on the other side. Serve. Serves 6.

Smoked Mackerel And Spinach Fishcakes

Rate this post

Ingrients & Directions

2 Smoked mackerel; about 5oz
2 ts Olive oil
4 oz Cooked spinach
2 oz Butter
4 Potatoes; peeled, boiled and
; mashed
2 Eggs beaten
2 tb Finely chopped fresh dill
1/2 ts Freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper
5 Floz natural yoghurt

Heat the grill and place the smoked mackerel underneath, drizzled with
olive oil. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Carefully flake the fish
off the skin.

Place the spinach in a saucepan with a tiny knob of butter and dry out over
medium heat. Place the mackerel and spinach in a bowl with the butter,
mashed potatoes, egg, dill, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add yoghurt to mix to
a fairly firm consistency; if it’s too sloppy the fishcakes will not hold
their shape.

Take a large egg-sized amount of mixture in your hands and form into a flat
cake – you should be able to make 4 large fishcakes. Place under the grill
and cook for 5-10 minutes, turning once. Serve hot.
