Leftover Dough

Roll out leftover pie dough and cut into 2-inch squares. Put a little thick red jam in the center of each square: fold over to make small triangles and seal edges. Bake on a cookie sheet in a hot oven. Sift confectioners sugar over the jam turnovers and serve for snacking or as a mealtime dessert.

CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES, Canadian

I nabbed this beauty from a Canadian Weight Watchers newsletter, so I am calling it a Canadian recipe. Plus I am guessing that Cadbury Chocolate is popular in Canada, so that sealed it for me! In case you are interested, here is a link to sign up for the Weight Watchers Canada Newsletter. Kinda fun to see what they do up there to lose weight!

Ingredients
  • 4 Cadbury Thin Premium Dark Chocolate Bars
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 lb strawberries
Preparation Instructions

Place chocolate bars and shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high for 1-1½ minutes or just until bars are melted. Then let cool slightly. Holding strawberry by top, dip 2/3 of each berry into chocolate mixture; shake gently to remove excess. Place on prepared tray. Refrigerate until coating is firm, about 30 minutes. Store, covered, in refrigerator. Coats about 1 pound of strawberries.
