Roast Chicken

Place 1 Whole Chicken in a glass dish.

I add water to the bottom, so I can make gravy.

Sprinkle the chicken with your favorite spices.

Convection Roast @ 375-400 degrees for 80 minutes.

Since each oven is different, check for done-ness of your ‘bird’….Roast longer is necessary!

Chicken should come out done in the middle and around all bones AND Crispy on the outside.

White Chocolate, Cherry and Pecan Cookies

YIELD: Makes about 6 dozen.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cherries (about 6 ounces)….I used Dried Tart Cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (about 8 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (about 4 1/2 ounces)

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Sift first 3 ingredients into medium bowl. Using electric mixer or food processor, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Add both sugars and beat until blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat just until blended. Using spatula, stir in cherries, white chocolate chips, and nuts.

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, spacing 1/2 inches apart.

Convection Oven:   Bake for 9-11 minutes.

*The recipe freezes very well.   I cut frozen cookie dough into a little more than 1″ squares and baked for the full 11 minutes/convection.   I had 12 cookies per cookie sheet.

(For Standard Oven preheat to 375F, Bake cookies until just golden about 16-18 minutes!)
