Try-It-Tuesday

Okay I have been a total slacker about this recipe thing and I really do like it!
I am hoping that with this one that I can make up for 2, 3 or maybe 4 missed weeks in a row - Sorry Elena. Check out her website for other great Try-It-Tuesday recipes, just check the comment section for more wonderful contributions.
So here we go.......

Homemade Pizza

1 cup warm water

1 TBL Yeast

1/3 cup oil

1 TBL sugar

Combine these together and let the yeast work.

Then add:

3 cups flour

Work with your hands till a nice ball has been formed. Place dough back in bowl and cover till double in size. Roll out onto pizza sheet and cover with selected toppings.

Bake at 325 degreed for 10-15 minutes. Will make 2 pizzas.
NEXT
Homemade Oreo's

Cookies

1 box Devils Food Cake Mix

2/3 cup shortening (never use oil, must be shortening)

2 eggs

Mix together till well incorporated and then let chill for about an hour.

Roll into Quarter sized balls and place on greased cookie sheet.

DO NOT PRESS THEM DOWN.

Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes or till tops are barely cracked.

You want them to be soft cookies so do not over bake them.

Let cool completely while making the filling.



Filling

1/2 cup butter

4 cups powdered sugar

1 egg yolk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp milk

Beat together till creamy and stiff, spread between cookies and keep any that are left chilled.

Happy Cooking!!

I hate the store-bought oreos. But HOMEMADE OREOS are my FAVS!!!!! A Neighbor around the corner makes them for almost every occassion (probably because each time I ask - "are you gonna make your oreos?")! hahaha! pics make it all look good. Can't wait to give it a go!

Another good one is using a Lemon or even a Strwaberry cake mix. But I am a chocolate fiend so that is my tried and true recipe.

YAY! You got the oreo recipe up. I've never tried putting egg yolk in frosting. Interesting, but i bet it makes the frosting very rich. I LOVE these cookies, but over cook them every time. I'm going to try again. Thanks for sharing.

That pizza dough recipe sounds familiar.... Tried and true and the best one yet! The oreos look no good, I think I will have to make a batch. They do not last in this house and the kids won't let me deliver them to the neighbors because they are too coveted and get eaten before they are even cool! You are the best cook! I love the picture of the kiddo!
