Cow Patty's barnyard Mine Field

Post  wendawatch on Thu Aug 13, 2009 6:53 pm

Cow Pie Patty's Barnyard Mine Field

Now there are two versions of this delicious recipe. One when you need to act respectable and have company over, and one for when its just plain folks and you can get a little ornery!

1 yellow cake mix, bake according to directions
1 box vanilla pudding, mix according to directions
1 can crushed pineapple
1 can cherry pie filling
1 lg. container Cool Whip

If you are havin' company call this your "Sunday Special" and make it this a way. Bake cake according to package directions. Cool; slice cake into squares or uneven strips. This is your "Barnyard" Layer cake strips into bottom of large bowl, pour half of pudding over top of cake. Spread pineapple on top of pudding, then 1/2 of pie filling, then Cool Whip. Repeat until all ingredients are gone.

When its just plain folks make it this way and call it your "Cow Pie Barnyard Mine Field!" Use sliced bananas instead of pineapple and chocolate pudding instead of vanilla pudding. Put two unwrapped Hershey's Kisses somewhere in the dessert. Whoever gets served the Hershey's Kisses has gone and stepped on a barnyard land mine and they gotta do dishes!!

Deep Fried Mars Bars

Post  justmecookin on Wed Sep 30, 2009 8:08 pm

Deep Fried Mars Bars

4 Mars bars
Shortening or cooking oil for frying
1 cup of sifted flour
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of cold water
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

Begin by mixing together the flour, the water and the salt until the mixture is smooth, then cover the pan and allow it to stand at room temperature for between 20 and 30 minutes. After the mixture has sat for 20 to 30 minutes, stir the baking powder into the mixture.

Put the cooking oil or shortening into a deep fat fryer and carefully insert a candy thermometer to ensure the proper cooking temperature. Take the flour mixture and begin to heat it over high heat. Carefully dip the candy bars into the batter, allowing any excess to drain off before putting them in the deep fryer. Fry the candy bars at 375 degrees until they have become golden and crisp. Carefully remove the candy bars from the deep fryer and allow them to drain on a paper towel before serving.

If Mars bars are not to your liking, this recipe also works just as well with a variety of other delicious candies. Some of the best candies for deep frying include Snickers bars , Three Musketeer bars and Milky Way bars. Other delicious and indulgent treats, such as Twinkies and Oreo cookies, can be prepared in this manner as well.

Almond Joy Cheesecake

Post  justmecookin on Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:45 pm

Almond Joy Cheesecake

Crust:
1 1/4 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Filling:
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup canned cream of coconut
1/2 teaspoon salt

Topping (optional):
1/2 cup canned cream of coconut
1/2 cup heavy cream
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
Toasted coconut
Sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350º. Make crust: In a bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, almonds and salt with a flexible spatula. Stir in melted butter until dry ingredients are lightly moistened. Press mixture into bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Wrap outside of pan tightly with two layers of aluminum foil. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Leave foil on.

Make filling: Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese and sugar until well combined and light, about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl and beat again until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down bowl again. Beat in vanilla, cream of coconut and salt. (Pour remaining cream of coconut into a small bowl, cover it with plastic and refrigerate to use later in topping.) Pour filling onto crust. Transfer springform pan to a roasting pan; fill roasting pan with hot tap water until it reaches 1 inch up sides of springform pan.

Bake for 1 hour, until filling is set but still a bit jiggly in center (it will firm up as it cools). Take springform pan out of roasting pan and remove foil. Let cake cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Lightly cover cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold and firm, at least 6 hours.

Make topping: Pour cream of coconut and heavy cream into a saucepan and warm over medium-low heat until mixture is just simmering. In a bowl, pour mixture over chocolate and whisk until melted and mixture is smooth. Let it cool. Pour 1/2 cup to 1 cup topping over cheesecake, spreading with an offset spatula. Garnish with toasted coconut and sliced almonds, if desired. Chill until chocolate mixture has set, about 10 minutes. Run a sharp paring knife around inside of pan; release sides. Slice and serve. Makes 10 servings

Stuffed Cupcakes

Post  justmecookin on Tue May 25, 2010 8:31 pm

Stuffed Cupcakes

1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups sifted self-rising flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 standard 12-cup muffin/cupcake pans with papers. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add the flour and milk, alternately, into the creamed mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Add the vanilla and continue to beat until well mixed. Divide the batter equally among the papers, filling them about 34 of the way up. Level the batter by dropping muffin pan on counter top to release the air bubbles. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes and then remove the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 24 cupcakes

Vanilla Cream Filling:
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup light corn syrup

With an electric mixer, cream shortening and butter together. Add confectioners' sugar and granulated sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract. Gradually beat in corn syrup. Continue beating until the mixture has thickened to a mayonnaise-like consistency, about 3 minutes.

When the cupcakes have cooled completely, fill a pastry bag, fitted with a medium-small plain, round tip with the vanilla filling. With a sharp, paring knife, cut a cross down into the center of each cupcake from the top, about 1-inch deep. Insert the tip of the pastry bag into the cross and gently squeeze about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the vanilla filling into the center of each cupcake. Wipe away any vanilla filling that oozes out when you remove the tip from the cupcake.

Peanut Butter Frosting:
1 1/2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 cups confectioners' sugar

Cream the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and salt together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla extract and heavy cream. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar. Frost the vanilla filled cupcakes with a butter knife or from a large star tipped pastry bag.

1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip

Cream the cream cheese until smooth; add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until blended. In a separate bowl, whisk the pudding mix with the milk until blended. Combine the two and mix well.

Cut three of the Moon Pies in half and then into three slices, for a total of 6 pieces, reserving any crumbles and storing them until needed for garnish. In the bottom of a 2-quart bowl, add about 1 cup of the pudding mixture, the 3 chopped Moon Pies and slice three of the bananas on top. Repeat layers with about half of the remaining pudding mixture, 3 more chopped Moon Pies, 3 more sliced bananas, and top with all of the remaining pudding mixture.

Coconut Whoopie Pies

Post  justmecookin on Wed Jun 27, 2012 5:12 pm

Coconut Whoopie Pies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg plus 1 large egg white
3/4 cup light coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut, plus more if needed
Coconut Fluff Filling, recipe follows

Coconut Fluff Filling:
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup marshmallow creme
1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
2 tablespoons light coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, shortening and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg and egg white and beat until incorporated. Add half the flour mixture and half the coconut milk and beat just until blended. Add the remaining flour and coconut milk with the vanilla and beat until blended.

Using a 1/4-cup ice cream scoop, drop the batter into 12 mounds on the lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart (or make 24 mounds using well-rounded tablespoons). Sprinkle half the mounds with coconut (or all of the mounds, if you like).

Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, until they begin to crack and are firm to the touch, about 12 minutes for large cookies and 10 minutes for small ones. Slide the parchment paper with the cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Use a thin metal spatula to lift the cookies off the parchment paper. Spread the flat side of the plain cookies generously with Coconut Fluff Filling. Top with the coconut-topped cookies, pressing lightly to seal them together.

Coconut Fluff Filling: Beat the butter and marshmallow creme in a large bowl with a mixer at medium-high speed until fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Beat in the confectioners’ sugar, coconut, coconut milk, vanilla and coconut extract until smooth. Makes about 1 3/4 cups
