I have a recipe from my Grandmother. She never measured ingredients so the measurements are no accurate. I can't get this recipe to come out correctly can someone help me? Here are the ingredients for the dough. 1/2lb crisco 1 tlb sugar 2 tlb orange juick 1 tlb vanilla 7 eggs 2 1/2 lbs flour 5 tsp baking powder
filling 1 1/2 bottles preserves 1 sq bitter chocolate 1 pkg juice citron (in food processor) 1/2 cup cracker meal 1 sm jar cherries refrigerate overnight
This is made as a loaf cookie with the filling inside then she sliced it like a biscotti.
No one else in my family has this recipe. I would greatly appreciate it if someone can help me with the correct measurements.
I just saw this post. I don't come often to this site anymore but I thought I would share a few ideas with you. I hope it helps. The dough is pretty easy you just need a scale to help you out. The filling might be a little more problematic though. The 1 square of bitter chocolate is 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate..that was the easy one. The preserves I would guess to be probably an 8 ounce jar so about 1 1/2 cups. Cracker meal, processed crackers and I would bet it would be the plain saltine cracker not the buttery kind. Small jar of cherries I am betting that is a small jar of maraschino cherries. I think those are in like 4 ounce bottles. Now for the tough one...you got me on the citron unless it is the candied citron that you can find around Christmas, pretty much candied citrus rind.
I sure hope this helps and you have a lot of time to practice before next Christmas. Sounds to me like this is a holiday cookie.
