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…

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake by Salad Foodie

Let me say right up front - fruitcake gets a bad rap. My theory is that many object to the darker types, with lots of spice and molasses. Or the sheer size or amount of this rich cake is enough to last folks til next Christmas. You will be pleasantly surprised though with Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake. In the ’50s, Lucile Harvey…

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

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

A snack for the gods! Sprinkle atop your favorite greens, blue cheese topped or chicken salad. For holiday entertaining leave the pecans in halves rather than chopping, and serve in a festive bowl.

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.

Angel Food Waldorf Cake by Salad Foodie

A company-best cake recipe with real WOW factor, from my recipe archives. Originally from the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library (1971) though the recipe is no longer found on the bettycrocker.com website. So glad to have this in my collection, as angel food cakes are my absolute favorites and this one is a standout. Be sure to allow…

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…

A munchy spice cookie with loads of nuts. Mixed candied fruit adds the “jewel tones,” moisture and softness. These perky and tasty nuggets won’t last long on the cookie platter.

Hummingbird Sheet Cake

Hummingbird Sheet Cake by Salad Foodie

Southern Living Magazine is credited with first publishing Hummingbird Cake recipe in 1978, submitted by Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, N.C. No one knows for sure how this cake got its name, but most likely because the whimsical little bird it’s named for is a symbol of sweetness (or maybe because the cake tastes so good you want…
