Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!


Melt In Your Mouth Cherry Shortbread Cookies


What pretty little cherry gems these cookies are. Not only are they adorable, they taste fantastic. This is a simple dough but it creates a tender, melt in your mouth cherry shortbread. Gorgeous and they are great for a holiday cookie tray.


I recommend keeping these cookies small (one teaspoon of dough) as directed in the recipe.


So festive. Enjoy!

    1. I haven't tried it so I can't say how they'd taste. They'd be missing a whole lot of the sweetness without cherries. If you don't want cherries I'd recommend trying a different recipe, since I can't vouch for how this would be without the cherries.

    1. Hi - I always use salted butter in my recipes. In this recipe, since there is no additional salt in it, I think that is just fine.

  6. Did you drain cherries well before adding ie dry them out? Wondering how you managed the glorious pink shade if you did dry them.

    1. So sorry that I don't recall as this was posted 3 years ago. But unless a recipe calls specifically for patting dry with a paper towel, I will just remove from the jar and if a little cherry liquid is on them, I let it be. They are usually pretty juicy as is so that adds to that pretty coloring.

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!
