Marie Biscuit Cake

Marie Biscuit Cake by louise

This no cook dessert is a favourite of mine. The biscuits used are 'Morning coffee' or 'Marie biscuits'. You can also use the LU Cookies or Rich Tea Biscuits that can be bought from Amazon. I have not seen the Marie or Morning Coffee type in the US except at the PBX on an armed forces base! They have all sorts of European food!…

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies by Joanne

Not too difficult and certainly worth every effort. This delightful cookie comes in a log and you simply slice as desired. It's a good thing the recipe makes 3 large cookie logs because you'll want a lot of extra.

Struffoli (honey balls)

Struffoli (honey balls) by Joseph Gargiulo

A Christmas favorite in Italian households. When I was growing up in my home there was always a bowl of these available to munch on with milk or, as I got older, with coffee. They are honey glazed pastry balls which are great for a festive snacking treat.

Easy Cinnamon Apple Strudel by Nancy Miyasaki

This is super simple and truly delicious. I made it for John's birthday dinner, since he loves cinnamon apple desserts with vanilla ice cream. It's light and flavorful without being too rich. We finished it all in one night between the six of us. Mmm!
