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.


Alyce Mantia's Almond Bread Pudding

desserts, bakery

6 croissants; large, cut crosswise in 1
8 eggs; large, beaten slightly
2 cup sugar
3 cup half-and-half
1 tablespoon amaretto
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup almond paste; about 3 oz, cut into bits
1/2 cup almonds; slivered

Butter a baking pan, 9x13 and place the smallest croissant rounds in a lawyon in the bottom. Then top with a layer of the larger ones, until all are arranged in the pan. Whisk the eggs and sugar together well, then whisk in the half-and-half, Amaretto and vanilla, mixing well. Pour over the croissant rounds. Sprinkle the almond paste over the top and push down with a spoon so that the bread absorbs the liquid. Let set for 10-20 minutes at room temperature. Sprinkle the almonds over the top and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until golden and puffed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
