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.


Beignets De Carnaval Or Fastnachtskiechla

breads, desserts

2 1/4 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup beer

Oil for deep frying Confectioners sugar mixed with ground cinnamon Pour the flour and salt into a bowl and make a crater. Into the crater put the eggs, sugar, butter and beer. Mix well with a wooden spoon, then turn out of bowl onto a heavily floured surface. Knead until mixture is a firm dough. Let stand, covered, for 1 hour. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch (1/2 cm). Use a cutter or knife to cut the dough into any shapes you wish: squares, rectangles, crescents, hearts etc. Heat the oil to 375 F. (190 C). Fry the fritters in hot oil for about 3 to 4 minutes turning to brown on both sides. Remove when they are the proper shade of golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle with a mixture of confectioner's sugar and cinnamon. These may be served as dessert; but they are also delicious at breakfast or for between-meals snacks.
