- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cuts extra sharp cheese, grated (aged cheddar is great)
- 1/4 cup nut meat, finely chopped (pecans are perfect)

Preparation Method: Cream butter until soft and fluffy. If you want to add a little
"zip", sprinkle Tabasco into the butter mix. Sift flour and add salt. Mix in the cheese and nuts. Form into rolls and wrap in wax paper. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight. Slice thin and bake at 350 degrees until light brown.

Preparation Time: 3 hours
Oven Temperature: n/a
- 1 (3 oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 teaspoons butter flavoring
- 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
- 1 pound powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon mint extract (or your favorite)
- Food Coloring, as desired
Preparation Method: Mix
cream cheese, butter flavoring, vanilla flavoring, extract and slowly (as in very slowly, so you don\'t wear the sugar) add the powdered sugar. Once it is well blended, add the coloring if desired. Mixture will be fairly dry; knead it slightly to soften. Roll mixture between two sheets of parchment or wax paper to desired thickness (recommend 1/2 inch). Remove top sheet of paper and cut into desired shapes (if in a hurry, just cut in small diamond shapes with a very sharp knife -- or, cut the mixture into holiday/seasonal shapes. Repeat rolling/cutting process until all the mixture has been used. Place mints in a single layer and allow to sit at room temperature for about two hours or more. Turn the mints over and allow to sit for
another hour. Refrigerate in an airtight container. These mints keep beautifully.
Comments to Viewer: Perfect to leave beside your guest beds or to serve for a bridal/baby shower.

Preparation Time: 1 hour for pears, 30 minutes sauce
Oven Temperature: n/a
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 bay leaf
- Zest of 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 6 small firm pears such as Bosc, cored from bottom with stem left intact
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 cup Amaretto
- 6 Amaretti cookies, crumbled
Preparation Method: In a medium-sized, nonreactive saucepan, combine the wine, water, bay leaf, lemon zest, 1/2 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the pears. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until the pears are tender. Baste the pears with the liquid several times during cooking.
Transfer the pears with a slotted spoon to a plate to cool.
Put the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan and stir constantly over medium heat until the sugar begins to foam around the edges. Continue to cook without stirring until it turns dark brown and caramelizes.
At the same time in a small saucepan, heat 1 cup of heavy cream over low heat. Very carefully, stir the hot cream, a little at a time, into the caramelized sugar. Stir in the liqueur then transfer to a bowl to cool completely.
In a medium sized bowl, whip the remaining 1 cup of cream to soft peaks with a hand mixer set on medium. Fold in the liqueur-flavored cream.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
