lightly. Lift the muffins carefully onto the bakestone and cook over very

moderate heat for 8-10 minutes until pale gold underneath. Turn and cook

Heat chocolate chips in either the microwave, or in a double boiler.

When completely melted add a couple drops of the mint flavoring.

Be carefull not to add too much, it is a powerfull flavoring.

You can either spread the melted chocolate on the cookies,

or you can dip the cookies into the chocolate.

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Combine with cake mix and water, and beat

about 2 minutes until thoroughly blended. Pour batter into molds, filling

each about 3/4 inch deep. Bake about 30 minutes, or until the cake is

golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

For the filling, cream the butter and shortening. Slowly add the sugars

while beating. Add the evaporated milk, vanilla and lemon extracts. Mix on

medium speed until completely smooth and fluffy. When the cakes are done

and cooled, use a toothpick to make three small holes in the bottom of

each one. Move the toothpick around the inside of each cake to make room

for filling. Using the pastry bag, inject each cake with filling through

all three holes.

Yield: 6 Servings

5. Remove the cookies from the refrigerator. Rest each one on a fork and

dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork on the side of the pan or bowl

to knock off any excess chocoloate. Then place each one on a sheet

of waxed paper and let them cool at room temperature (65-70F).

This could take several hours, but the bars will set best this way.

If you want to speed up the process, put the candy in the

refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Makes 40 bars.

Heat oil for deep-frying in wok or deep-fryer to 375. Add chicken pieces,

a small batch at time, and fry 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crisp.

(Do not overcook or chicken will be tough.) Remove chicken from oil with

slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant. Add and stir-fry crushed chiles

and green onions. Add rice wine and stir 3 seconds. Add Orange Sauce

and bring to boil. Add cooked chicken, stirring until well mixed.

Add to chicken and heat until sauce is thick. Stir in 1 teas. sesame oil.

Serve at once.

Makes 6 servings.

Add the remaining flour blending until smooth. Scrape the dough from

the sides of the bowl and cover with a cloth dampened in warm water.

(The cloth should feel wet, but not be so wet that water drips onto

the dough.) Let rise in a warm place (85 degrees F.), until doubled,

about 1 1/2 hours. Divide the dough in half, rolling each half into a

12-inch circle 1/4 inch thick. Spread with the soft butter and cut

each circle into 16 wedges. Roll up each wedge beginning at the

largest end. Place, point side down, on a greased baking sheet. Curve

to form crescents. Cover and let rise until double, 1 hour. Preheat

the oven to 400 degrees F and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until

they are a rich golden brown. Brush with soft butter.

Makes 32 crescent rolls.

Heat the peanut oil in a pressure cooker over med. heat to about 400F. In

a small bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk. In a separate bowl,

combine the flour, sugar, pepper, and salt. dip each piece of chicken in

milk until it is fully moistened. Roll the moistened chicken in the flour

mixture until completely coated. Drop all four chicken pieces into the hot

oil and close the pressure cooker. When steam starts shooting through the

pressure release, set the timer for 3-1/2 minutes. IMPORTANT!!!!

DO NOT CLOSE STEAM RELEASE. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS! While the chicken is cooking, spread a coating of melted butter on the face of each bun. When

the chicken is done, remove it from the oil and drain or blot on paper

towels. Place two pickles on each bottom bun; add a chicken breast, then

the top bun. To make a deluxe chicken sandwich, simply add two tomato

slices and a leaf of lettuce. Mayonnaise also goes well on this

sandwich--it is a side order at the restaurant.

When the refrigerated mixture is firm, melt the chocolate over low heat

in a double boiler or in a microwave oven set on high for 2 minutes.

Stir halfway through cooking time. When the mixture in the pan has

hardened, cut it into 2x1-inch sections. Set each chunk onto a fork

and dip into the melted chocolate. Tap the fork against the side of the

bowl or pan to knock off any excess chocolate. Then place the chunks on

waxed paper to cool at room temperature (less than 70 degrees F). This

could take several hours, but the bars will set best this way. You can

speed up the process by placing the bars in the refrigerator for 30


Makes about 2 dozen bars.

4. Sprinkle a couple tablespoons of the reserved flour over the dough and

work it in until it can be handled without sticking, then turn it out

onto a floured board, being sure to keep 1/4 cup of the reserve flour

for later. Knead the dough well for 60 to 90 seconds, and the flour is

incorporated. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least

one hour.

5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a light coating of cooking spray

on a baking sheet.

6. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and use the remaining reserve

flour to dust a rolling surface. Roll about one-third of the dough

to just under 1/16th of inch thick. Trim the edges square (a pizza

cutter or wheel works great for this), then transfer the dough to a

lightly greased baking sheet. Use the rolling pin to transfer the

dough. Simply pick up one end of the dough onto a rolling pin, and roll

the dough around the rolling pin. Reverse the process onto the baking

sheet to transfer the dough.

7. Use a pizza cutter to cut across and down the dough, creating 1-inch

square pieces. Use the blunt end of a skewer or broken toothpick to

poke a hole in the center of each piece.

8. Sprinkle a very light coating of salt over the top of the crackers

(crackers will already be quite salty) and bake for 8-10 minutes,

mix the crackers around (so those on the edge don’t burn) and bake

for another 3-5 minutes, or until some are just barely turning a

light brown. Repeat the rolling and baking process with the remaining


Makes approximately 300 crackers.
