1. Kahlua Brownies with Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Glaze

Ring in the New Year in a festive way

From "Stop and Smell the Rosemary... Recipes and Traditions to Remember," published in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
5-1/3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon Kahlua
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream


2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
2 teaspoons solid vegetable shortening


     Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9-inch square baking pan.  Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy.  Slowly add flour and continue to mix until blended.  Add pecans.  When completely combined, press crust into bottom of prepared pan.  Set aside.
     Combine chocolate, shortening, and butter in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.  Cool.  Combine eggs, sugars, and vanilla in a large bowl.  Mix until blended.  Stir into cooled chocolate mixture.  Add Kahlua.  Slowly add flour and salt, mixing until batter is smooth.  Stir in pecans.  Pour filling into prepared crust.  Bake 25 minutes, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean.  Be careful not to overbake.  Let cool.

     Buttercream Frosting:  Cream butter, sugar, Kahlua, and cream in a small bowl until smooth and creamy.  Spread over cooled filling mixture and refrigerate 30 minutes.  More Kahlua may be added to make spreading easier.  For a less sweet brownie, use half of Buttercream Frosting.

     Glaze: Melt chocolates and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly.  Cool and spread over Buttercream Frosting.

YIELDS:  3 dozen brownies
2. Karpalajuoma - Cranberry Sparkle

From the Kitchen of:  Sandy
Source:  The Finnish Cookbook This is a non-alcoholic, clear, yeast-sparkled drink from Finland. They enjoy this during the summertime.

2 cups cranberry juice
8 cups water
1/8 teaspoon active dry yeast
1-2 cups sugar (depending on if the juice is sweetened)

Heat the juice and water to boiling. Dissolve the sugar in it and let stand until lukewarm. Add the yeast and stir (but do not add the yeast until the liquid has cooled, or it will not work). To test for the correct temperature, place a few drops of the liquid on your wrist, if it feels neither warm or cold, it is the right temperature.) Pour into a non-metallic container. Let stand overnight or until little bubbles appear around the edge of the liquid. Pour into sterilized bottles with an airtight cap. Close tightly. Let stand at room temperature about 3 days, or until the liquid has bubbles in it. Chill and store in refrigerator or a cool place until you wish to serve it. Makes 2 1/2 quarts.
