It’s Valentine’s Day!


Here are two specials I have made for this Valentine’s Day!


AS EASY AS A PIE – Orange Gel Pie


Ingredients I have used:
  • Keebler Shortbread Crust – 9-inch size
  • Jello Orange Flavoured Gelatin – 3.5 Oz pack
  • Water 2 cups

Preparation:

The preparation of this pie is as easy as the ingredients.

  1. Boil water, add the gelatin powder to the hot water and mix well.
  2. When the gelatin mixture is still hot pour carefully into the Crust. Leave it for some time. Then cover the crust and place in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 hours or until set.
  3. Now the Orange Gel Pie is ready. Garnish it with your favorite icing or whipping cream.


Don’t you think this is the easiest pie? This is simple, easy and tastes great too.

COOKIE ANYONE? – Butter Cookies



This is one more easiest cookie recipe. These cookies are a hit in our family. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups Pillsbury Classic White Cake Mix
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1½ stick unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg

Preparation:

Mix butter and sugar in a bowl and beat them together with an electric hand mixer (or manual egg beater will do) at medium-high speed until fluffy. Beat in egg too. Finally add the cake mix flour to this and mix until just combined. The dough should be soft and fluffy. Preheat oven (I used toaster oven) to 375 degrees F.

Meanwhile roll the dough into a thick round shape using a roller. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut shapes in the rolled dough. Arrange them on an ungreased baking sheet about an inch apart.

When the oven is preheated, place the baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. Cool them for some time on cooling racks or on a plate. Repeat the above process with remaining dough.

Garnish the cookies with your favorite icing, sprinkles etc.

My 8-year old daughter who has helped me throughout the cookie making process decorated my cookies. She is a great helper.

I am sending these Valentine’s Day entries to Pooja’s “Theme of the Week – Valentine’s Day”.



Once again, a very happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
