This chocolate truffle recipe is very easy to make and I thought I’d share it, especially with Valentine’s day coming around the corner. When I was a kid, I would eat truffles by the dozen from those pretty gold foiled packages that only seemed to appear around Christmas time. For a treat that seems so fancy, it really surprised me when I learned that making chocolate truffles only require three main ingredients and next to no kitchen experience.
These irresistible shrimp pastry hors d’ouvres are super easy, taste amazing and look super impressive. The phyllo dough creates an incredibly thin flaky encasement and the warm cream cheese n’ onion shrimp filling just gushes with flavor in every bite. I promise you this tried and true recipe will earn you rave reviews, as long as you serve them fresh from the oven. The filling can also be used as dip for crackers or breads.
This is a super easy recipe that produces a delightfully crispy and classic butter cookie. As you can see, I’ve also added a dollop of peanut butter to each cookie and mixed in cranberries with some others. My mother usually bakes them with pecans. You can be imaginative and add in your own nuts/dried fruits such as pecans, walnuts, raisins etc. (whatever you can think of).
