Reviewed gingerbread cookies 101

4 hours ago on FoodNetwork.com

I've made these cookies the past 4 Christmases. They're tricky, but if you get them right, people will rave about them. 4 stars b/c I made a few modifications: I doubled all the spices except for salt & pepper (a must), used powdered sugar to roll out the dough instead of flour (otherwise they can become over-floured), & slightly reduced the...

This didn't turn out too well for me, although I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I didn't want to over-stuff my 12 lb turkey, so I cooked most of the stuffing in a separate casserole dish covered with aluminum foil on the bottom burner in the oven. I cooked it for about 1 hour at 350 degrees and it ended up dry, tasteless, and almost burnt.The...

Really, really great recipe. I made this for my family for Christmas and there wasn't a single scoop left.To address other reviewers' concerns about it being "soup-y": my husband and I were worried about the same thing so we decided to prepare it early in the morning and let it harden a bit. We made the batter, put it in a casserole dish, covered...

WOW. This turkey was unbelievably delicious, and it satisfied an entire family of very picky eaters. We did the brine soak for 14 hours (minus the allspice berries, which I couldn't find), and I think it made an enormous difference. I do think every oven is different since mine took 3 hours for a 12 lb turkey, but like other reviewers said, just ...

These sugar cookies came out delicious! The dough was a little soft to work with, even after refrigerating for 1 hour...but it wasn't a problem since I took another reviewer's suggestion to cut out the shapes on a piece of parchment paper. I didn't have time to go to Michael's for the meringue powder, so I used another recipe for Royal Icing usin...

This was an amazing recipe.. due to popular demand, I had to make 2 batches! I doubled all the spices except for salt and pepper. Both times I let the dough sit overnight. The scraps were hard for me to re-roll and work with at first, but I finally had the patience to let the dough refrigerate in plastic wrap before re-rolling, per the recipe's s...

This recipe is amazing!!!!! I hadn't even finished my first serving when my husband went for seconds, and then thirds.... needless to say, there wasn't any left for me after that! It was savory and delicious. I read the reviews on here and made quite a few changes. I floured the beef before browning it so I didn't use any corn starch. I also car...
