Easter Recipes

Have you ever made Square Deviled Eggs? It’s easy and I’m going to show you how:

Ingredients:
Cooking spray
12 large eggs
1/3 cup mayo
1 tbs. white vinegar
2 tsp. yellow mustard
dash of salt and pepper
Paprika and sliced chives, for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
Separate the egg whites and yolks into 2 small bowls; set aside the yolks. Whisk the whites until just foamy, transfer them to the prepared baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake until the whites have fully set, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely in baking dish. While the whites are baking, beat the yolks until smooth. Lightly coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add the yolks and scramble over medium low until fully cooked and slightly dry, 4 to 5 minutes.
Transfer the yolks to a food processor. Add the mayo, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and pulse until smooth and creamy. Transfer the yolk mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip. Turn the egg whites out of the baking dish onto a cutting board. Cut into even 1-inch squares. Pipe swirly dollops of the egg yolk onto each square. Sprinkle each with paprika and chives if using.
These look like pretty little flowers and taste so good, too.

Here’s how to make that ham tasty. You’ll need a five pound ham, score it and stud with 1/4 c. whole cloves. In the top half of a double boiler heat 1/2 c. dark corn syrup, 2 cups honey, and 2/3 c. butter. Brush glaze over ham and bake for one hour and fifteen minutes. Delicious!

And now for dessert:
Carrot Pineapple Cake
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1-3/4 c. white sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups shredded carrots
1 c. flaked coconut
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 (8 0z) can crushed pineapple, drained
Frosting:
1 (8 0z.) package cream cheese
1/4 c. butter, softened
2 c. confectioner’s sugar
Preheat oven to 350 deg. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Make a well in the center and add sugar, oil , eggs and vanilla. Mix with wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in carrots, coconut, walnuts, and pineapple, salt and cinnamon. Pour into pan. Bake about 45 min. Don’t panic, the center will sink a little. Allow to cool.
To make frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add confectioner’s sugar and beat until creamy. Enjoy!

Christmastime is the joyous holiday commemorating Jesus’ birth while Eastertime commemorates His death and rising from the grave. Hallelujah, He Arose!
