Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Whoopie Pie on the menu? Try pairing with Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

Preheat Oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil; set aside. In a large bowl cream together the sugar with cup shortening using an electric mixer. Add eggs and continue to mix until well combined. Add flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, vanilla and cardamon and blend on low speed for one minute. Increase speed to medium and continue to mix for an additional two minutes ensuring to scrape down the sides. Scoop one tablespoon of batter onto the prepared pan about an inch apart. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until no indentation appears when the top is lightly touched. Let cool on cookie sheet for two minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack until cooled. While cookies are cooling prepare the filling. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer beat on low for one minute. Add desired amount of food colouring, increase speed to high and continue to beat for an additional two minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use. To assemble cookies place a dollop of icing on the centre of the flat side of one cookie. Top with another cookie and press gently together to evenly spread the icing. Repeat for all cookies. Makes about 20 sandwich cookies

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • When buying canned fruit, buy fruit packed in fruit juice and check the label to avoid added sugar. The fruit is sweet enough, it doesn't need any help!

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you find that you're always missing lime zest, purchase lime extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • An average lime yields about 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of lime zest. If you're making key lime pie or something and end up with more zest than you need, freeze it!

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!

  • Don't despair if you don't have powdered sugar on hand. All you need is granulated sugar and a good blender. Pour in the granulated sugar and blend at a high speed until you have a powder.

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic limes if you're using them for zest.
