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…

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

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.

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…

Moravian Sugar Cake

Moravian Sugar Cake by Glenn

Lititz, PA was founded in 1756 as a closed Moravian community and remained that way for 100 years. The town is built around the Moravian Church Square and while it now hosts many religions the Moravian Star and Moravian food dominate. While not Moravian, our family enjoyed Moravian Sugar Cake as a special treat. We always got ours…

Never Fail Chocolate Cake

Never Fail Chocolate Cake by Glenn

One of the easiest, and moistest chocolate cakes you will ever bake. My grandmother, Eva Koehler, called it her "never fail" recipe. It is nearly impossible to screw up. She always topped it with peanut butter icing (which is simply a white icing with peanut butter mixed in to taste).

Christmas Jewels (Fruit Cake Cookies) by Salad Foodie

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.
