Make Your Own: Easy Bake Oven mixes



This year for Christmas we're giving my niece an Easy Bake Oven...Now, the cost of the Easy Bake isn't in the oven itself, but in all those little packets of mix. In addition to the oven and one of the add-on kits, I decided to make up a bunch of mixes for her to use. So here are the five mixes I've made... Chocolate Chip Cookie mix, Chocolate Cake mix, White Cake mix, Chocolate icing mix and White icing mix. All five have labels with the directions on them right on the container so no need to hunt up directions. And each container makes at least 8 batches, so there's plenty to work with.  I'm posting both the recipes for the mixes and the Word document with the labels in it here if you should want to use them for your own gift or personal use... Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Three of these recipes are from the Budget 101 website and a couple are my own versions of other mixes...

Dirty Snowballs

Dirty Snowballs


 

 
If you've been reading this blog, you know that I've been playing along with GoodLife Eats and My Baking Addiction's Holiday Recipe Exchange. This week there were two chances to play with two different themes. The first theme, Comfort Food, I blogged about my macaroni and cheese recipe. The second theme this week is a repeat of a previous theme...BUTTER!  

Now, those of you who know me personally know we do not keep margarine in our home. We ONLY use butter, and yes, we keep BOTH kinds (salted and unsalted) on hand. The only time I really use salted butter though is for eating straight up, like for bread and butter, or for using on things like grilled cheese sandwiches, waffles, etc. The rest of the time I use unsalted. In my way of thinking, I can always add salt to a recipe, but I can't take it out :) 

So for this round of the BUTTER theme, I decided to go with a dessert since that is my favorite thing to cook :) Last BUTTER round you may recall, I shared my recipe for Buttery Potato Rolls. This time I'm sharing a brand new recipe, fresh from my kitchen, which combines the best of two of my favorite kinds of holiday cookies...meltaways and Mexican Wedding Cookies (sometimes called Russian Tea Cakes). This recipe has the tender, flakiness of the meltaway with the nutty goodness of the wedding cookie. Add to that the yummy taste of a hot butter rum and you've got a winner! In thinking of a name for these cookies, I came up with Dirty Snowballs.  They reminded me of when I was a kid and you'd get some sand in your snowball when the snow wasn't real deep... thus, Dirty Snowballs.  They turned out better than I had hoped and I certainly hope some of you will give them a try.  

Now, if you're a dough-eater like me, please don't be disappointed when you taste the dough... It is NOT a sweet dough and it DOES have a strong rum/alcohol taste when raw, but when the dough is baked off and rolled in powdered sugar, these cookies are light, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth, balls of goodness! So give them a shot! You won't be disappointed!

Dirty Snowballs
Recipe By     : Christi Brogan

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup pecans -- or use pecan meal
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter -- (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup confectioners' sugar -- divided

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract



Using a food processor, chop the pecans until very fine, almost a pecan meal consistency.

Consistency of pecans after chopping

Combine flour, pecans, cornstarch and spices in a bowl. Place 1/3 cup of the confectioners sugar and the butter in the workbowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Reduce speed to low, and gradually mix in flour mixture. Add the rum and vanilla and beat to throughly combine.

Chill dough in freezer for 30 minutes to re-harden the butter.

Comfort Food Extreme: Homemade 5-cheese Mac n Cheese


Homemade Five Cheese Mac 'n Cheese





 So here we are with the SIXTH entry in GoodLife Eats and My Baking Addiction's Holiday Recipe Exchange... And this week the theme is comfort foodCome join the fun at the My Baking Addiction and GoodLife Eats Holiday Recipe Swap sponsored by Le Creuset.


In my world, nothing says comfort food like a hot bowl of homemade macaroni and cheese, with a nice crunchy top crust and noodles that aren't overcooked nor undercooked but JUST right. There are lots of recipes out there for macaroni and cheese and lots of ways to dress up the basic mac, but in my opinion, nothing says comfort like the traditional mac and cheese that I love to make for my family. My little girl absolutely gobbles it down. In fact, it's her most requested meal. I use five different types of cheese in my mac n cheese, the fifth one only appearing in the topping. You can use the five types I've listed here, which are my basic go-to cheese choices, or you can change out any of them for cheeses of your choice. I oft-times find myself short on one or more of these and use what I have on hand. I only have two pieces of advice when it comes to swapping out cheeses. First, make sure they melt! Don't choose a cheese like feta or queso fresco which don't melt well. And second, if choosing a stronger flavored cheese like a blue, use half the amount of that cheese and up the amounts of the other cheeses to keep it from overpowering the dish. Other than that, swap away!  Here's the basic recipe:

Christi's Homemade Baked Five-Cheese Mac 'n Cheese


1 1/2 pounds elbow macaroni -- cooked to al dente
1/2 large sweet onion -- diced
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon Hungarian paprika -- sweet
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder -- Coleman's brand preferred
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups whole milk -- can use 1-2% but whole makes it richer
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese -- grated
4 ounces medium cheddar cheese -- grated
4 ounces Swiss cheese -- grated
4 ounces Velveeta -- diced
1/4 cup bread crumbs -- for topping
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan -- for topping

If your pasta is not cooked, start your water boiling now and your pasta and sauce will be ready at about the same time. Cook your pasta for 1 minute less than you normally do as it will bake and soften a bit more in the cheese sauce in the oven.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grate the cheddar and swiss cheeses on the large side of your box grater. Cut the velveeta into 1" cubes. 


Melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and saute until starting to turn golden. Mix flour with spices. Add flour mix, whisking to form a roux.  Will be clumpy/thick.  Cook for 2-3 minutes or until it smooths out and starts to smell a little nutty. Add milk, 1 cup at a time, whisking to incorporate throughly before adding more. 

 

Let this come just to a boil, then turn heat down to medium low and add cheeses slowly making sure to melt each addition before adding more. Add velveeta last to help smooth it all out. Combine cheese sauce mix with cooked macaroni noodles. Spray a large casserole dish with cooking spray (helps clean up later!) then dump in mac n cheese. Top with bread crumbs and shredded parmesan cheese. 

 

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly throughout.  



This makes a large batch, perfect for freezing. I serve some for dinner, then package remainder in "meal sized" portions in the freezer for later use. Or you can also be really bad and try out Alton Brown's Next Day Mac and Cheese "Toast"...  To reheat thawed mac n cheese, bake at 350 until heated through. 

YUM!!!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

 
And now for the next entry in the Holiday Recipe Exchange with GoodLife Eats and My Baking Addiction... This week I decided to go the easy route and start with a recipe from a fairly reliable source... Martha Stewart! I know Martha gives some folks the frights, but I've found her recipes to usually be worth repeating... This one in particular I've tried in the past and found them absolutely addicting, so I decided I'd share my take on her recipe for Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies. This cookie is like a cross between a snickerdoodle (owing to the cream of tartar) and a cup of hot chocolate with a little bit of chile heat added in for fun. They come out of the oven slightly crispy but still chewy and wonderful! If you enjoy this recipe, then come join the fun at the My Baking Addiction and GoodLife Eats Holiday Recipe Swap sponsored by Scharffen Berger.


  
Santa would LOVE a plate of these cookies!
Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies

Original recipe source: Martha Stewart.com
Adaptations by me!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (the darker the better)
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup unsalted butter -- (2 sticks) room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (homemade if possible!)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly ground ancho chile

  
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.  

Pepper prep: Take your ancho chile pod and break it open, removing all the seeds and the stem. Place the flesh of the chile in your food processor or, if you're like me and have a dedicated "spice grinder" (aka coffee bean grinder that's been re-purposed for spices), use that. Just be sure you don't use your regular coffee grinder for this or you're next cuppa joe may be on fire! Grind the pepper until it's in powder form. If, like me, your pepper is a little too soft (ie. not dry enough) grind enough for this recipe and then let the rest dry out for another use. Put 1/2 tsp of this freshly ground pepper in a small bowl for later use in this recipe.

Freshly ground ancho chile

In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Well creamed butter and sugar takes time...don't underbeat it!
Scrape down side of bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat to combine. With mixer on low,
add the cream of tartar, salt and baking soda, allowing each ingredient to incorporate before adding the next. Add cocoa powder next followed by the flour in small increments (so you don't wear it!)

Dough's ready to go!
In the small bowl with your freshly ground ancho powder, add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. 

The rolling mixture
 
Using heaping tablespoons (I used a #40 cookie scoop which is about 1.5 tbsp), form balls of dough and roll in chile-cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place, about 3 inches apart, on baking sheets. 

Ready to bake
Bake until cookies are set in center and begin to crack, about 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to racks to cool completely. 

  

Nicely crackled but still chewy

Enjoy this recipe and let me know if you give it a whirl! I love to get comments from readers who've tried them!

Spiced Cranberry Butter in the crockpot



At this time of year I get to thinking about food gifts from my kitchen, and about ways to use up things in my fridge so I have room for all those holiday dishes, etc.  So, along that vein, yesterday I made Cranberry Butter in my crockpot... Cranberry Butter is like apple butter, only made with fresh (or frozen) cranberries rather than apples. In this case I had some cranberries I'd frozen as well as some fresh ones that I needed to use so into the crockpot they went!  After tossing the cranberries in, I added some sweetening (in this case a combination of sugar and honey) and some spices (cinnamon, clove and ginger) and then turned the crockpot on low. It cooked all day on low, smelling up the house with it's holiday goodness, and then in the evening I removed it all to my food mill and gave it a whirl to remove the skins from the cranberries. After that I put it back in the crockpot, adjusted the seasoning (adding a little more honey and some salt for flavor contrast) and let it run overnight on the "keep warm" setting with the lid ajar to allow it to thicken up a bit more.  And so this morning we have some super cranberry butter for eating and for giving... Thought I'd share the recipe and a little pic of it for anyone interested in giving it a whirl!

Cranberry Butter in the Crockpot

2-3 lbs fresh or frozen (not thawed!) cranberries
2 cups sweetener of choice (sugar, honey, maple syrup or a combination)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground clove
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp kosher salt
Place cranberries, 1 1/2 cups sweetener, cinnamon, clove and ginger in the crock of your slow cooker and turn on low for 8-10 hours. After this time, remove to a food mill or food processor and puree until smooth. Return to slow cooker and adjust sweetness to taste as well as adding the salt. Allow to continue to cook on low (or keep warm setting) with the lid ajar for another 4-6 hrs or until thickened to your liking. Freeze or water-bath can for giving as gifts.  Makes about 4 cups of butter or 4 half-pint jars.

Great on toast or biscuits or try it served over cream cheese with crackers for a great appetizer! Also great when turned into a "baked brie"...

For Baked Brie, you'll need 1 sheet puff pastry, 1 wheel of brie cheese, about 1/4 cup chopped nuts and the cranberry butter. Put the puff pastry sheet on a greased baking tray. Trim the rind off the wheel of brie then place in the center of the sheet. Top with chopped nuts and then spoon a couple of tablespoons of the cranberry butter overtop. Fold the puff pastry over all the enclose then put into a 350F oven until golden brown all over. Serve hot with some extra cranberry butter if desired. YUM!

TRUFFLES!



Well, here we are with entry #4 in the Holiday Recipe Exchange being conducted by GoodLife Eats and My Baking Addiction! This week's theme... CHOCOLATE!  Those of you who know me, know that chocolate is one of my addictions, and something I think should truly be one of the food groups! So, when I was thinking about what to make for this exchange assignment I could only think of one thing...ganache! And what better use for ganache than TRUFFLES! Every year at Christmas time I make truffles as gifts, usually with alcohol in them, but this year, since I'm unable to imbibe (because I'm nursing a 3 month old), I decided to try some other flavoring ideas to make them. I have made truffles in the past with an earl grey tea infusion and with a lavendar infusion, so I thought why not try and incorporate some of my favorite holiday flavors in this week's challenge and viola! Two versions of my favorite truffle recipe with a holiday twist! Hope you enjoy!

Sausage Bread



So I've made sausage bread for the weekend... One loaf for our house and one loaf for my dad's house (since they'll have company too).  Normally Sausage Bread starts with frozen bread dough, but since I am glutton for punishment, I decided to make my own dough in the bread machine. So here are the photos and instructions from the starting dough through to the finished loaves... This recipe is a combination of a bread recipe from Food.com and my own creation for the filler.   Enjoy!

Sausage Bread with Homemade Dough
 
***Bread Dough***
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons butter
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
***Sausage Filling***
2 lbs italian sausage (1 hot, 1 sweet)
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 lbs mozzarella, shredded
3 eggs
shredded Parmesan
Italian seasoning
Place all bread dough ingredients in bread machine and select dough cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough, split into two and roll each into a 12"x15" rectangle on a lightly floured board.

Sausage, removed from casing, 1 lb hot, 1 lb sweet
Meanwhile, brown the sausage in a pan. When browned, add onion and cook an additional couple of minutes until softened. Drain excess grease from sausage and cool slightly. 

Browned and ready to go
Beat two eggs together and mix with the slightly cooled sausage. Spread 1/2 of the sausage mix on each of the dough sheets, sprinkle with mozzarella, then a little Parmesan and Italian seasoning and roll it up lengthwise, pinching the ends and seam to seal.

Ready for filling

Roll up lengthwise

Tuck in ends and press seams

Ready to bake

Place seam side down on greased baking sheet and allow to rest for 15 minutes.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, beat remaining egg in a small cup. After 20 minutes, remove bread from oven and brush with egg. Sprinkle with more Parmesan and Italian seasoning and return to the oven for an additional 25 minutes or until dark golden brown.

YUM!

Cool loaves on pan for 15 minutes before serving or putting on a cooling rack to cool completely. If serving at a later time, make sure to refrigerate once cool and reheat before serving.

Buttery Potato Rolls

Ok, so here's the next installment of the Holiday Recipe Exchange recipes... Today, hot, buttery, potato rolls! This recipe is based on one that's been used in my family for many many years. It utilized leftover mashed potatoes and is just delicious. I usually keep some "instant" mashed potatoes in the pantry for just this purpose (well, this and my husband's great-grandmother's doughnut recipe!) 

This is a very versatile recipe which can be made into any shape from Parkerhouse to crescents to hamburger buns. It's also great with other things added either to the dough itself (like fresh herbs) or on top (think parmesan cheese, italian seasoning, etc.) Enjoy!

Buttery Potato Rolls
5 teaspoons yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup unsalted butter -- to 1 1/2 cup, divided use
1 cup milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
5 cups flour -- to 6 cups, to make stiff dough


Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease the cups of a 12-cup muffin tin (three if you have them).

In a small bowl, add yeast to warm water. Heat milk and 1/2 cup butter in microwave for 1 minute.

Pour milk/butter mixture into the work bowl of a heavy duty stand mixer. Add sugar and salt and mix on low. Add potatoes and eggs and mix to combine. Add yeast/water mixture.

Slowly incorporate flour, adding enough to make a stiff dough (usually 5-6 cups), switching to dough hook when it becomes necessary.

Flour a work board or clean countertop and dump dough into the center. Dough should be soft (like a pillow!) but slightly sticky. Divide into thirds. At this point, if you only have one muffin tin (like me!) then wrap the two 1/3 batch balls in plastic wrap (or a ziptop bag) that's been lightly sprayed with non-stick spray and park in the fridge until ready to bake. You can also freeze the dough at this point for later roll making. If using (from freezer) thaw overnight in the fridge. With either fridge or freezer dough allow to sit on the counter for 20-30 min. (while oven preheats) before continuing with instructions.

Soft, but slightly sticky, knead in extra flour if needed to keep it from sticking, but don't overwork the dough!

Divide each third into 12 equal sized pieces. Divide each of these pieces into three equal-sized balls (about the size of a walnut in it's shell).

Melt 1/2 cup butter in the microwave. Roll each ball into the melted butter then place three of these balls together into the well of the prepared muffin tin.

Ready to rise

Mmm! Buttery goodness!
Allow to rise 45 min or so until doubled in size.

The risen dough, ready for the oven
Bake at 350° until golden brown, 20-25 min. Cool for 5 min in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool. Brush tops with more melted butter before serving. If not serving immediately, allow to cool and store in a zip top bag. When ready to serve, reheat in a warm oven then brush with melted butter.
