Bakers Blue Label In Marie Biscuits

The Marie Biscuit has been around for a long time and still is one of the most famous biscuits around town. The simplicity allows you to cook with them, add ingredients to them or to eat them just as they are.

Have you ever tried putting something on top of these biscuits? You can make miniature jam cakes that fill you up with sweetness like no other. If you don’t have a cake around somewhere in the fridge this is a perfect substitute.

Marshmallows work perfectly too. This is possibly one of the best sweet treats to make for yourself. All you need to do is place a marshmallow between two of the Marie Biscuits and put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds. A delicious melted marshmallow treat.

If you are having a party and want different treats besides cupcakes or tarts you can make sweet treats yourself. Dress up this biscuit with chocolate and sprinkles and serve it as a delicious dessert on the buffet tables. This works well for New Year parties, Easter parties or Birthday parties.

Most cheesecakes have a base that uses this biscuit. You can either make the traditional cheesecake or Tiramisu.

Traditional cheesecakes can either be baked or chilled. Crush the biscuits and layer them on the bottom of the pan. To give the base extra excitement you can add lemon juice, orange juice or zest prior to adding the mixture to the pan. Make sure you add a little sugar.

For the Tiramisu, you need to layer the biscuit between cream cheese, cream and chocolate shavings. Usually finger biscuits are used to absorb the espresso but Marie Biscuits work just as well. This cake does not require baking. Make sure you make a nine cup pot of espresso and add three teaspoons of sugar per cup.

Another trend present that can be seen all over the web is dessert balls. The crushed biscuits allow the dessert to stay stiff whilst being chilled and frozen for the baking or frying process. All that needs to be added is a chocolate dough which usually consists of milk, egg and flour, depending on the recipe and how it needs to be cooked.

Making sweet treats should not have to be complicated. They are delicious and deserve to be made as often as possible. Whether you want to impress a group of people or just want to have a party for one, these treats are great to have on the plate. Marie Biscuits can be found in bulk at a cash and carry wholesaler if you use a lot of it because they simply are the best.

This Easy Dessert Recipes for Easter Dinner

I love everything about Easter dinner from the ham to the rolls, but I also love the dessert and wanted to share two of my family favorites with you.

The first one I want to share with you is peanut butter pie. This is a very easy recipe to make and your family and friends will love it.

You will need the following ingredients to make the Peanut Butter Pie:

  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 block cream cheese, very soft

Mix the whipped topping, powdered sugar, peanut butter and cream cheese together until very smooth and then pour into your pie crust. You can buy a pre made graham cracker crust or use the recipe below to make one of your own. When you have the pie in the crust cover and put in the fridge until firm and then serve.

To make the graham cracker pie crust you will need:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Mix the graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar together and then mix into a pie pan and bake at 400 degree F. for 10 minutes. Let cool and the put the pie filling in the crust.

Tip for Making Peanut Butter Pie:

  • You can also use a regular pie crust instead of a graham cracker crust.
  • You can put whipped topping on top of the pie or wait and put it on each slice when served.
  • You can try crunchy peanut butter (I have only used creamy peanut butter in mine).
  • Can be made the day before and stored in the fridge until time to serve.

The next Easter dessert recipe is for Amber’s Apple Dessert and you will need the following:

  • 1 crust (I use refrigerated canned crescent rolls)
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Put the crust in the pan and spread the apple pie filling over the crust. Mix the flour, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon together. Cut the butter into the mixture with a fork or pastry blender or you can even use your hands. Mix the butter in until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the mixture over the apples and bake at 350 degree F. for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and pour the glaze on top of it.

To make the glaze you will need:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until very smooth.

Tips for Making Amber’s Apple Dessert

  • For the crust you can use crescent dough or pre-made pie dough that you roll out or you can make your own pie dough.
  • You can also use other pie fillings in the place of the apples such as peaches, strawberries or blueberries.

I hope you enjoy these recipes at your Easter dinner and make them part of your recipe files for future Easter dinners.

About Gluten Free Appetizers

If you are having a party there is no reason that you cannot indulge in the appetizers that you have created for your other guests, as there are many great tasting appetizers you can fix. Gluten is the protein found in spelt, barley, and wheat, which people who have celiac disease cannot tolerate. These appetizers are naturally gluten-free. One example of a gluten free appetizer is a mini-egg frittatas that are made with minced vegetables, bacon bits, and cheese. When you use crackers to put appetizers on read the ingredients to make sure that they are made using rice flour. These crackers can be wheat or cheese flavored. Before making the appetizers, use a recipe book that contains only gluten free recipes because with other recipes you will have to read them carefully to make sure that they do not contain ingredients like wheat.

Fruit and cheese plate

This is a simple appetizer and can be served with a fruit dip that is cream cheese based to add a little more sweetness to the fruit appetizers. It is best that you make your own because the ones in the store could contain ingredients that are wheat-based. You could also make a caramel-based fruit dip but do not buy it in the store ready-made because the caramel color could be wheat based. Homemade caramel is gluten free naturally.

Other simple gluten free appetizers

• Shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce of horseradish and ketchup
• Tortilla chips with fresh guacamole and tomato salsa
• Vegetable sticks with hummus
• Asparagus spears that are wrapped in prosciutto, which is a thinly sliced, uncooked Italian dry-cured ham. All you need to do is warm it in the oven.
• For a spicy appetizer make buffalo chicken wings with a hot sauce dip you make yourself
• Using slice turkey and cream cheese, put them on a romaine lettuce left and make roll-offs. If they are too big you can cut them in two or three pieces and secure them using toothpicks
• Cheese and dips served with bread
• Brie cheese on baguette slices that are toasted

Appetizer ingredients to avoid

Some ingredients should be avoided when making appetizers that are gluten free because they can be manufactured with wheat.

• Barbeque and Worcestershire sauce because of the caramel coloring
• Soy sauce unless it is certified as being one

One important thing to note is that if you decide to make appetizers that are not gluten free and some that are, do not use the same utensils for both appetizers because there is a risk of cross-contamination. To help avoid this make the gluten free appetizers first and mark them as such.
