Gonna make apple dumplings. That one is simple. Just put a cored granny smith apple with a little cinnamon and sugar and a pat of butter on it, wrapped in your best homemade pie crust and bake till golden brown.

Wow, that looks great! Not to mentioned that it sounds easy too. Thanks for the idea, as my son's will love those.  :)

I'm moving this one over from the B&V because people ask for it all the time and the recipe is no longer on the brewery's website. Here's Alan's original recipe for beer cookies from the 20th Great American Beer Festival (GABF).

*Warning: These cookies are only for the true fanatical hop lovers! Try em.

Hair of the Dog Beer Cookies

2 cups flour
2/3 cup light DME
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sea salt
3 tsp finely chopped whole hops

8 ozs unsalted butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 eggs

2 ozs British crystal malt (crushed)

Whip butter in a mixer @ high speed until light in color, add sugar & cream together. Add eggs one at a time, making sure that they are well incorporated. Mix dry ingredients together and fold into butter/egg mixture. Pipe cookies onto parchment paper using a pastry bag with a medium straight tip. Sprinkle crushed crystal malt over cookies before baking. Bake @ 350F degrees for @ 15 minutes. Yield 50 cookies.

All Things Food / Re: Change of plans: Turkey SMOKING Tips
« on: November 24, 2009, 03:59:23 PM »
When I smoke small (10-14#) turkeys using my Masterbuilt electric smokehouse, I usually start hot (225F+) then go "low & slow" @ 165F. I typically use pecan or hickory wood mainly because it's abundant around here, but I used some apple wood mixed with persimmon last year that was awesome. Happy smoking!  :)   

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Club legal status

Hey Steve!  You should check with the state of TN, but I'd recommend getting your club set-up as an non-profit organization (NPO) because you're bringing in revenue(s) e.g. comp fees, membership, etc... which could definitely lead to Q's from the IRS. Individual banking institutions are different, but you don't necessarily have to be incorporated to open a DBA account. There's usually a small fee attached with doing such which might be the reason your credit union is trying to "upsell" you one. Our club uses a simple/economy business checking account which requires the current &/or past president + treasurer's signature required for withdrawals over $100.00. We accept checks with the club's full or partial name and/or acronym, but cannnot accept checks made out to specific individuals within the organization. I'd check with your finacial institution, as you may be able to change the parameters of your current account to accept these checks. If not, opening a new DBA or small no-interest account after getting your club's status changed to an NPO would be the way to go. Hope this helps?  ???

I think that would be excellent especially this time of the year. I'm always looking for suggested pairings and usually have to fumble through search engines & several books before I find what I'm looking for.  ;)

Cheap'n'Easy Coolers sounds like a great name for an exclusive homebrew line. Do they come in fall colors?  :D
