Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Almond Cookie Shells

desserts, biscuits

3 large egg whites
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup almonds, sliced, toasted

Put the egg whites in a bowl and beat them briefly. Add the sugar and flour, then whisk. Stir in the almonds. Butter a sheet pan and spoon tablespoons of mixture onto the pan. Spread the spoonfuls on the sheet slightly with the back of a spoon to form circles about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350 F oven for 5 - 7 minutes. Remove from oven and while still hot, you can mold the cookies into small cups by placing them over small cups, or shot glasses, or even the back of a muffin tin. Set aside to dry. When dry, the almond cookies can be eaten as is, or in my favorite way which is to fill them with mousse of some kind - or even ice cream or yogurt (if you eat hurriedly before they soften.) ;-) Source: Great Chefs of San Francisco, Avon Books, 1984 Chef: Masataka Kobayashi, Masa's, Vintage Court Hotel, : San Francisco, CA
