Could powdered egg whites be substituted for the raw whites to avoid the slight danger of eating raw egg?

For well-shaped palmiers, wrap the roll in plastic film and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. (if making the roll in advance, refrigerate it but then put it in the freezer for 30 mins before slicing).
Other cheeses work well, too."

Easy to prepare; small, sensible servings, but, honestly, they do taste like they were made with canned biscuit dough (the texture & saltiness) -- which they are!
My guests seemed to enjoy them, so I will probably use this recipe again, especially when something fast & cute is called for. I did add more powdered sugar than the filling and...

The photo shows a lack of sharp definition, is that because of the cherry jelly used in the 'filling'. I would prefer a neater looking pinwheel effect, especially for a cookie exchange or display on a cookie tray."

Pumpkin cheesecake is outstanding with gingersnap crust.
This particular filling could use a bit more favor."

Nov 10, 2011 in null on Food.com

Biscuits came out of the pan, but topping was baked on the bottom and was difficult to scrape it out and drop it on top of the biscuits. The topping is good, but getting it off the bottom of the
pan is a lot of much work."

I used one Tbsp less of butter and flour and only 1/4 cup cream (with 1/4 cup milk). Still a good soup!"

I used low-fat cream cheese and Splenda to lighten up on calories. Whipped cream cheese might make the filling fluffier/lighter, too."

I paired this with spinach salad rather than potatoes or rice, but jasmine rice would be good."

Yes, I, too, have posted about revealing cleavage (Giada De.). I think I described tits and tortes as being incompatible, certainly inappropriate for 'serious' cooking shows. Producers, PLEASE take note!"

This is very sweet, but tasty, but obviously in moderation.
Sandra Lee's recipe packs a punch for adult tastes and the Splenda recipe saves a few thousand calories.

The dough was just a little crumbly, which resulted in cookies with a bit of a ragged edge.
The cookie flavor was average. I may incorporate some dried bits of fruit ala Ellie Krueger's recipe if I make this recipe again. The name does get kids interested in helping, I must say!
