It will all be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, it isn't the end.

rms, there is always angel food cake. I have a nice recipe for a chocolate one if you like. Also, as someone mentioned upthread, chiffon cake has oil rather than butter.

has anyone made Insanity Rose's lemon bars?

I made them several years in a row, and I loved them, but most people found them overpoweringly lemony. They're very strong and puckery. I'm going to try Cook's this year.

Joy of Cooking has excellent, very tart lemon bars, too.

I hate it when I'm inflexible about things that are stupid.

I want a lemon bar recipe that has an almond crust. Actually, I'd just use the filling from the Cook's recipe, so really what I want is an almond-flavored crust. Any ideas?

I think I've done something like that. Which I know helps you a lot, but.

Edit: Nope. I was thinking of Maida Heatter's Swedish Almond Torte but it's not really lemon-filled.

I've actually tasted exactly what I want. The problem is, it was made by a friend of mine and she made two different kinds. I have no way to communicate to her what I want, and at this point it was a while ago and I don't think she can find any recipes. Maybe I should suggest we get together and bake though, and then I can look through her recipes.

I am considering just doing some experimenting, substituting almond powder for flour in the Cook's recipe and looking around for other recipes.

Cross posted. Almond torte sounds yummy.

I love the IR lemon bars. They're so lemony that your toes will curl, though.

Maybe I should take some to Thanksgiving. It turns out that I'm the ONLY one bringing dessert and the crowd will be between 10 and 20 (plus assorted children) - hopefully the hostess will have a firmer number within a couple of days.

So far I'm making 6 pies, a gingerbread cake, and my family's beloved Chocolate Delight bars (this is a midwestern concotion with crushed vanilla wafers, pecans, and chocolate chips covered in evaporated milk and baked. The milk carmelizes and the bars are much better than the sum of their parts). The lemon bars would be a nice alternative taste, but not very Thanksgiving-y.

Mmmmm, toe-curling.

Sometimes I worked all day in the field for $3.00 a day. Sometimes I worked all day in field for $2.00 a day, and sometimes I worked all day for $1.00 a day. We had many chickens and other animals. I love animals.

Gingerbread cake?

I posted the almond torte recipe in Only Recipes, Sweet Pea. It only looks long and complicated--it actually comes together pretty fast.

I looooove gingerbread cake. Or really, any type of spice cake. Or really, cake in general.

The Joy of Cooking Gingerbread cake recipe is very good.

Okay, I just posted in another thrad that I had a gingerbread cake with lemon sauce recipe that I loved, and can no longer find. Julia, can you post yours?

Thank goodness for my friends at Franzia!

If I'm making mini muffins rather than regular cupcake size muffins - how do I adjust the baking time?

They are better than stars or water/Better than voices of winds that sing/Better than any man's fair daughter/ Your green glass beads on a silver ring.

They should be done in 10-15 minutes--just touch the top of one and see if it springs back.

I want to make my (NY style) cheesecake that I'm bringing to Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday - properly covered and refirgerated, that isn't too early, is it?

How's about for pumpkin?
