Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Super sweet and highly recommended from kids of all ages, these oreo cookie cupcakes have double dose of cookies in both the cupcakes and the frosting! A vanilla cupcake mixed with oreo cookie crumbs and a sweet old-fashioned frosting with oreo cookie crumbs mixed into it.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Halloween Finger Cookies

Halloween Finger Cookies by John Spottiswood

These taste like a rich biscotti. But the best thing about them is the spooky Halloween look! Try serving them at a Halloween party or bringing them to work. It feels creepy to eat them!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

Creole Pralines

Creole Pralines by Amos Miller

Better than a cookie (sorry bakers, but this is a Creole group) and with the true taste of New Orleans, Creole Pralines are one of the signature treats in the Big Easy! It is time to play 'soft ball', and we're not talking the sport - we're talking Creole candy. When the recipe calls for your concoction on the stove to reach the…

Milk Dud Cookies

Milk Dud Cookies by Katherine Martin

I have made a lot of desserts in my day (obviously) but all my housemates said that these were the BEST that I have ever made. The flavor also reminded me of Milk Duds (hence the name). They are amazing straight out of the oven because the caramel is so gooey, but you can also zap them in the microwave for 5 seconds to get the…

Williams Sonoma Triple Chocolate Brownies

Williams Sonoma Triple Chocolate Brownies by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a very popular recipe that I simplified a bit without losing any of it's goodness. You can serve these when you feel like a dark chocolate cake but don't have time to hassle with it. They make a wonderful end to any meal! They are super chocolaty, so they go really well with a scoop of vanilla or coffee ice cream!

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie by Nancy Miyasaki

I have a number of great chocolate chip cookie recipes. This is probably my kids' favorite. I'm not sure it's truly the original, but if it's not I can't imagine the original is much better! I love the way I can sneak the oatmeal in by grinding it to a powder and my kids don't even notice it! It may not make them health food, but…
