Empire Biscuits, also known as Imperial Biscuits, German Biscuits or Double Shortbread, are sandwich cookies popular in UK, particularly Scotland. It is very similar to a linzer cookie, being formed by sandwiching 2 shortbread cookies together with raspberry jam. Nothing out of the ordinary till here, but then the cookie is glazed with a simple sugar glaze and decorated with half of glace cherry and that brings these cookies out of anonymity. Honestly, these biscuits shook my world the other day when I made them. I wasn’t expecting them to be this delicious, I thought they would turn out good, but nothing special and they blew me away.
Eggnog Cake with three layers and a boozy soaking syrup! So decadent and rich, topped with silky buttercream spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. This dessert is way too delicious to pass up this holiday season!
Do you believe in fairy tales? As a kid, you probably did. Then you grew up. Realized 'reality' and may have given up on dreams. I remember watching the Rose Parade on TV as a kid and thinking it was a fantasyland. A place that was only for rich, famous, stars, the elite. Never in my wildest dreams would I think I'd be at the Rose Parade doing cooking demos at 'Live on Green'!Yes, this recipe and seven others will be featured at the Dole Bistro where I will be cooking at the 2016 Rose Parade. I've had the amazing adventure and honor to be Dole Packaged Foods first-ever social media ambassador. In this role, I've had some pretty magnificent experiences, am meeting so many great folks, but I must say, the Rose Parade is the 'cherry' on the top~much like it is in this beautiful pineapple upside down mini cake!This year's theme for the DPF float is 'Soaring over Paradise'. Get ready to see something that is a moving work of art involving thousands of hours of work and hundreds of thousands of fresh flowers, fruits and more. On January 1, tune in to watch the Tournament of Roses Parade where Dole Packaged Food’s float, “Soaring Over Paradise,” explores the world’s rainforests. The float includes four waterfalls, a zip line that travels through the rainforest canopy and a flock of Macaws that appear to take flight over the floral gardens.
