Carnival of the Recipes: Warm-and-Fuzzy Edition

This week, we’re diving into the warm-and-fuzzy food. (Not to worry. The food is warm, not fuzzy – but it just makes you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.) The Carnival of the Recipes: Warm-and-Fuzzy Edition is ready for your perusal: http://egoist.blogspot.com/2008/10/carnival-of-recipes.html
Be sure and link to the Carnival on your blog to show your support for our volunteers. We depend on our wonderful volunteers to sift through all the recipes each week (pun intended), so if you have not volunteered before it’s probably your turn! If you have volunteered before and you enjoyed it, feel free to volunteer again too. (It’s a great way to introduce new readers to your blog and share your love of cooking at the same time.)
I will host the Carnival next week at http://everythingandnothing.typepad.com as a farewell to being the Carnival organizer. Bill Austin, who runs several recipe sites, is taking over the reins at the Carnival of the Recipes (after months and months of begging on my part). I know he will do a great job, and I will continue to participate (and be around if he needs me). If you want to say Hi to Bill, drop him a line at bill (at) azhttp.com. If you have suggestions for the Carnival, I’m sure he’d be glad to hear them.
Anything goes next week! Send in your favorite recipe by 12 p.m. CST Saturday to be included. If you’re interested in hosting a future carnival send an e-mail with the word host in the subject line. (We need more hosts! Please volunteer!)
Visit our Carnival of the Recipes page on Blog Carnival to review all past Carnival of the Recipes. (The Blog Carnival page is down now. We’re working on getting it back up. In the meantime, please email recipes directly to recipe.carnival (at) gmail.com)

Famous Recipes – Orange Batons

Orange Batons

Nonstick cooking spray
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter or butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon orange flavoring
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons shortening
2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

1. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a
large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg yolk, and orange flavoring
with electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. Add flour mixture
and orange peel; beat on low speed just until combined.

3. Using a cookie press fitted with a star disk or ribbon disk, force
unchilled dough into 2-1/2-inch sticks or ribbons 1/2 inch apart on
prepared cookie sheet. (Or use pastry bag fitted with a star tip.)

4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are
firm, but not brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.

5. In a small saucepan, melt chocolate and shortening together. Place
nuts in a small, shallow bowl. Dip about 1 inch of the end of each
cookie into chocolate; dip coated tip into the nuts. Place dipped
cookies on waxed paper to set. Store in a covered container in your
refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 60 cookies.
