I have been wanting to try making a lime meringue pie or lemon lime meringue but never have gotten to it.

Shrek made an Orange Meringue Pie once and named it, "The Miami Slice." It went out the door of the shop like gangbusters!

Does Shrek know how to make Italian wedding type cookies? If so could he give me some pointers on a good butter cookie recipe that I can pipe using a pastry bag?

Does not matter, what else is in that book?

Tractor tires or French crullers, any kind of donuts! Radio bars, maple bars, cream horns, Spanish bar cake!

We may need to bring him out of retirement kicking and screaming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, I found the recipe he used, a basic Butter Tea Cookie, with almond paste and chopped almonds added to the dough. He rounded the cookies, baked them off, once cooled he had lackeys (me) to roll them in powdered sugar. The recipe makes 5 pounds 7 ounces of cookie dough.

Here it is: Fancy Butter Tea Cookies

PF this is fantastic!

One stupid question, can I leave out the almond paste and almonds so that I will have a true butter cookie or do you think it will change the structure. I am thinking it should be ok but need a second opinion.

Thanks again!

Everything is in the book. The copyright is from 1985, this is a beat up, written in book. And it smells like a bakery. I couldn't find many specific things like you names, things are listed as Cake doughnuts, raised doughnuts, cookies (no division such as bar cookies). Some of the recipes (formulas) are impossible as you would not be able to get some of the ingredients unless you buy from a wholesaler.

Leave it out, the original recipe has neither of those, they were written in by Shrek from an idea he had.

I have a Danish recipe for pear tart. I made it, but used apples instead. I make it with soft, whole grain, wheat flour. It came out just as good as with the pears. All the sugar is in the crust and the only shortening is butter.
