Tired of baking the same old thing? Give these interestingly delicious and simple to prepare recipes a whirl! These dynamic flavor combinations will tantalize your taste buds and have the whole family calling for seconds!
Feeling hungry for a snack, but can’t decide between sweet or salty? Have the best of both worlds with some fabulous (though out of the ordinary), easy to make potato chip cookies!
Potato Chip Cookies:
Here are all the ingredients you’ll need to get the baking underway:
1 cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups unbleached flour
½ cup potato chips, crushed
½ cup pecans, chopped
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your dough by creaming the butter, sugar and vanilla together until a light, fluffy consistency is achieved, then mix in the flour, crushed potato chips and chopped pecans and blend together evenly.
Next, use a teaspoon to drop spoonfuls of dough onto your ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about two inches of space between each spoonful of dough. Following that, use the bottom of a drinking cup or glass, which has been greased and coated with sugar to flatten the dollops of dough.
Finally, bake your cookies for 10 to 12 minutes per batch, cool and enjoy! This yummy recipe yields approximately five dozen cookies, which are sure to go fast!
Looking for something to liven up a plain main course? Why not stir things up with a strangely superb-tasting, sweet and tangy strawberry-onion sauce! This uncommon and savory recipe blends unique flavors to give that boring fish or pork dish a little something extra!
Strawberry Onion Sauce:
To make the sauce, grab a few fresh, simple ingredients:
1 pint of strawberries, rinsed and sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 stick salted butter (or ½ cup equivalent)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
To begin, melt the butter in a cast-iron skillet. Add the sliced onion and lightly sauté just until it turns clear. Next, reduce heat to medium and add in the sliced strawberries, sugar and lemon juice. Simmer and stir for about three minutes, pour over your fish or pork dish and serve!
If you still have room for dessert, forget the usual indulgences — try a decadently moist cake with the texture of coconut from something equally as “exotic.” This seemingly unassuming cake gives you both the sweet chocolate you desire and something most unexpected – sauerkraut!
Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake:
You’ll need the following ingredients:
1 ½ cups sugar
2/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup cocoa powder
2 ¼ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sauerkraut, drained
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Begin by creaming the butter and sugar together; then combine in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then add these ingredients to the creamed ingredients. Slowly pour in the water, a little at a time, then mix in the drained sauerkraut. Pour batter into a 9x13-inch pan and bake for 35 minutes!
