  1. I made it, and it IS a keeper..but when I put it into the Weight Watchers recipe builder I got 4 pts a serving. Which is still WAY better than "regular cake" and it tastes so good even non-weight watchers folks like it and will eat it.


  2. I don't have mastercook, so any help appreciated! Recipe courtesy of a friend (not sure where he got it originally)

    Pour mixture into prepared pan.

     

    Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until firm. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cover and chill 2 hours.

     

    Topping Directions: Combine apricot preserves and water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until jam melts. Spread over filling; cut into bars.

    Sir Isaacs Fig Bars

    Ingredients

    FILLING

    11 large dried figs, cut in half - 8 1/4 ounces

    1 tsp grated fresh orange peel

    1/2 cup apple juice

     

    DOUGH

    1 cup all-purpose flour

    3/4 cup + 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour

    1/2 tsp baking powder

    1/4 cup sugar

    3 tbsp + 1 tsp. margarine

    1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. water

     

    Directions

     

    Preheat oven to 350~.

    Lightly oil or spray with a nonstick cooking spray a baking sheet.

    TO PREPARE FILLING: Combine all filling ingredients in a blender

    container. Blend until figs are in the form of a thick puree.

    TO PREPARE DOUGH: Combine both types of flour in a large bowl -

    along with baking powder, and sugar and mix well. Add margarine. With

    a fork or pastry blender - mix until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    Add water - stirring until ingredients are moistened. Now - with

    your hands - form dough into a ball, adding additional water, 1/2

    tsp. at a time, if necessary, until dough holds together.

    Place dough on a lightly floured surface, knead a few times and then

    shape into a log. Roll it into a 12 x 14 inch rectangle. Cut

    rectangle lengthwise into 3 long strips.

    TO ASSEMBLE: Divide filling evenly between the strips and spoon

    down the center of each strip. Fold dough lengthwise and seal edges

    by crimping with a fork. Place rolls on prepared baking sheet.

    Flatten slightly with your hands. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until

    bottoms are lightly browned.

    Remove to wire rack to cool, and when cool, trim the ends and,

    using a sharp knife, cut each log into 10 bars - each 1 1/4 inch wide.

     

     

    Makes 10 servings of 3 cookies each serving.

  4. Anyone know some good ones? Preferably with points, of course. smile.gif

     

    I got a tofu making kit for Xmas and plan on making some tofu, so it would be nice to have some recipes to try it out in! :D

     

    Thanks for any help.

  5. a 6oz banana is 2 points. My question is -- is that 6 oz with the skin on or off? I'm thinking it has to be off, since you don't eat the skin. But wanted to make sure!

     

    Thanks for any help.
