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

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 you, Ellie.

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?

Ellie Mayhem -- Friday, November 19, 2004 -- 10:28:36 PM -- 3526 of 13465

I think you'd be okay with the cheesecake, but it's too early for the pumpkin. It would start to weep probably and get the crust soggy.

JennyD -- Friday, November 19, 2004 -- 10:28:37 PM -- 3527 of 13465

I'd think the fillings would be fine, but won't the crusts get soggy?

JayKay -- Friday, November 19, 2004 -- 10:30:29 PM -- 3528 of 13465

Well, the cheesecake is basically getting a nut (almond, likely) crust, so maybe that'd be okay. You're probably right about the pumpkin, though.

I just don't want to be up all night Wednesday baking (I'm doing an apple pie too).

We bloviate on a whole lot of different subjects. We might as well bloviate on this.

Dammit, I really shouldn't read this thread when I'm hungry. I am literally salivating at the thought of those toe-curling lemon bars.

Domo arigato Rob Halford!

I just posted my gingerbread cake in Only Recipes, JayKay. I really like it - it's one of those recipes where the result is way out of proportion with the amount of effort expended. In the good way.
