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.


Amaretto Balls

desserts, christmas

2 cup pecans, chopped finely
2 cup confectioner's sugar, sifted
2 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
2/3 cup amaretto
1 pecans, additional

Process pecans and wafers separately; combine in food processor with sugar. SLOWLY pour in liqueur until mixture forms a ball. You might not need the whole amount, depending on the humidity level. (If mixture gets too wet, put it in the refrigerator -- uncovered -- overnight to dry out some.) Shape into small balls; roll in additional finely chopped pecans. Store in tightly sealed container. Yield: Not nearly enough. Vicki's notes: * One Christmas Eve I had to work, but I took a break to pop in a bookstore. They were having an open house, and I managed to snarf a lot of these morsels during those stolen minutes! After Christmas I came back to hunt down the clerk who brought these -- my finest bit of sleuthing yet... * These are equally enjoyed and requested by my friends. Although some have tried other liqueurs -- including bourbon -- the results are never as good as the original! * I substitute Oreos for the wafers, plus use only 1 1/3 C confec sugar; don't worry about the cookies' filling because it is nothing more than confec sugar.
