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?

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.

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.

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.

Sounds good.

Is there any reason you don't cream the butter first, Julia? (I'm genuinely curious, not trying to be snarky.)

Julia M. -- Saturday, November 20, 2004 -- 04:34:50 PM -- 3533 of 13465
Domo arigato Rob Halford!

No reason. It works perfectly fine without doing so, so it's never occurred to me to add another step or monkey around with the recipe.

(Also not being snarky.)

Cool. Thanks.

I love Jesus, but I drink a little

I have a cheesecake squares recipe that calls for using a 9 inch pan. I'm assuming they mean 9 inch square, which I could not find at Target. So my options are to use an 8 inch square or a 9x13. Which should I use?

Ellie Mayhem -- Saturday, November 20, 2004 -- 08:51:03 PM -- 3536 of 13465

8" square, bake a little longer at a little lower heat. Of course I'm a big fan of baking cheesecake really slowly.

EK, you can also rig up a dam type of thing for your 9x13 pan with a piece of cardboard covered with aluminum foil.

Elizabeth K -- Saturday, November 20, 2004 -- 11:52:03 PM -- 3538 of 13465

Hmmm, that thought never even occured to me!

This recipe is from Cooking Light, so it really is barely considered cheesecake.

I forgot to say earlier that you can hold the damn dam in place by filling the unused side with dry beans.
