Butter and Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

Butter; Heavy Whipping Cream

Whipped Cream; Heavy Whipping cream & Powdered Sugar

Directions:

Butter

1. Put heavy whipping cream into a mason jar (amount depends on how much you want).
2. Shake. You will get to this hard to shake part, this takes extra energy. You'll know that it's finished when you see a ball of yellow-like butter blob with a light yellow/white milk substance.

Whipped Cream

1. same as the butter but add a heaping spoonful of powdered sugar.
2. shake. Do not shake longer than 1 min. after it starts getting hard or you'll start making sugary butter.

*The butter is magnificent on saltines, and the whipped cream is boss on the Homemade Caramel Frappuccino.

Jalapeno Poppers

1 lb Jalapeno, cut lengthwise and deseeded
1 8oz pkg Cream Cheese
1 8oz pkg Marble Jack, finely shredded

1 tsp Garlic Powder

Directions:

Mix the cream cheese, marble jack, bacon bits, chili powder, and garlic powder in a large bowl and put the mixture in the jalapeno halves. Put the jalapenos on a lined cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 20 min. hot, 30 min. medium, or 40 min. no spice.

Spanish Street Churros

Churro Batter:
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water
  • Oil for frying
Dusting:
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup cinnamon
Chocolate Sauce:
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
Directions: To make your chocolate sauce place the chocolate, cream and syrup in a saucepan on very low. Heat until melted through. Remove from heat immediately.
For the churros, mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Heat the butter in a saucepan until boiling. Add salt and stir. Stir in flour and slowly add the water until you have a soft doughy ball (you may not need the entire cup so start with less and add more as needed). Transfer to a bowl and add your 3 eggs and mix.  Heat your oil at medium high. Transfer batter into a piping bag or gun with a star tip. Pipe into the oil about a 6 inch long piece of dough. Use a knife to scrape the batter from the gun each time. Fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Take them out one at a time and roll in the sugar mixture.
Dip in the chocolate and eat immediately! They are best fresh! This is no frozen Disneyland churro. Melt in your mouth. And that chocolate sauce just puts it over the top!
