Using an electric mixer, cream butter and remaining 3/4 cup sugar on low speed for about 30 seconds, then increase to mediumhigh and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each. (Mixture will look curdled.)

Beat in lemon peel, salt and vanilla. Add yeast mixture; gradually add 2 cups flour. Beat on medium, scraping bowl, until smooth, 5 minutes. Gradually add remaining flour; beat until dough is elastic. Stir in raisins.

Butter a bowl. Transfer dough to it, cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Punch dough down and stir in almonds. Transfer dough to prepared pan, cover with a towel and let rise until dough is within 1/2 inch of top of mold, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 475. Bake Kugelhopf until golden, about 8 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake until a cake tester comes out clean, 30 minutes. Let Kugelhopf cool for 5 minutes, then turn out of pan onto a rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar; slice with a serrated knife; serve with butter. Makes 8 Servings

Coconut Nest Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Thu Mar 26, 2009 1:49 pm

Coconut Nest Cookies

4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dark rum or vanilla
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded dried coconut
Egg-shaped candies or jelly beans

Cut two pieces of cooking parchment to fit two 10- by 15-inch baking sheets. With a pencil, draw 10 evenly spaced 2-inch circles on each piece of parchment. Place each, marked side down, on a baking sheet.

In a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer, with a hand-held mixer or the standing mixer's whisk attachment, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed until foamy. Add salt and beat until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 minutes.

Gradually add sugar, beating mixture until sugar has dissolved completely (rub a little between your fingers to check; if it feels gritty, sugar is not dissolved) and mixture is glossy, thick, and very billowy, 2 to 5 minutes. Beat in rum, then gently fold in coconut.

Mound mixture in 3- to 4-tablespoon portions in marked circles. Using a spoon, make a shallow depression in the center of each so it resembles a nest.

Bake cookies in a 250 regular oven (convection not recommended) until light golden, about 1 hour, switching pan positions halfway through baking. Turn oven off, leaving cookies inside, and let stand until dry and firm to the touch, about 2 hours longer.

Remove from oven and let cool completely on sheets, then peel off parchment. Set candies or jelly beans in each nest. Makes about 20 cookies

Classic Baked Ham with Maple-Mustard Glaze

Post  justmecookin on Thu Mar 26, 2009 3:09 pm

Classic Baked Ham with Maple-Mustard Glaze

1 cooked, bone-in half ham (about 7 to 8 lbs.)
15 whole cloves
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 325. Cut off the tough, leatherlike skin from ham (if it has it; some hams will not), and score the fat in a crosshatch pattern. Stud ham all over with cloves, put in a large roasting pan, and loosely tent with foil.

Bake until a thermometer inserted in center of thickest part (not touching the bone) registers 135, about 20 minutes per lb. or 2 to 2 1/2 hours total, basting occasionally with any accumulated juices.

While ham is baking, make the glaze: In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, maple syrup, and mustard. Whisk until smooth. When ham has about 40 minutes left to bake (internal temperature will be 120 to 125), brush generously on all sides with glaze. Continue baking until ham reaches 135 and glaze is well browned. Makes 8 to 10 servings
