Sauceen,
I always highlight and cut and paste into a word document.  That way I can adjust the recipe or add other ingredients.  I then save it to my own file in recipes.  I've found that when I use the print option on recipe sights, I wind up having other things printed that I don't need, thus wasting ink!  Hope this helps.

"I made them even though I questioned the lack of leavening.  They don't need it!  They have the texture of a shortbread. They are wonderful - I can't keep my hands off them. Might try drizzling a little melted chocolate over them next time but I don't think they really need it."
