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…

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.

MANGO PUDDING

MANGO PUDDING by Linda Tay Esposito

A newer addition to the dim sum repertoire, the mango pudding is influenced by Western desserts techniques (since the Chinese are not too big on desserts! "Not too sweet" is always a sign of a good dessert for the Chinese!). Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute with coconut milk to give it a more tropical flavor.

Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation by Salad Foodie

This recipe takes me back over 40 years when I lived in Germany. My landlady Mathilda would treat me to this pastry and one day I asked her for the recipe. She agreed to show me how to make it, if I taught her how to make American lemon meringue pie!…

Granny Smith's Apple Pandowdy

Granny Smith's Apple Pandowdy by Amos Miller

Makes your eyes bug out & your stomach say "Howdy!" Fusion can be confusin', so let's get back to an ol' timey American dessert, not found on menus in fancy restaurants. This is just good country food, like I got when I'd have dinner at Nellie Keeling's home up Horse Mill Hollow, near Glasgow, W. Va. Pandowdy is a highly…

Crowd-wowing Flat Apple Pie!

Crowd-wowing Flat Apple Pie! by Salad Foodie

In my all time top FAVS of pie recipes, this pastry is like a Texas-size turnover! Baked in a jelly roll pan, it’s a cinch to transport to meetings or parties, and even easier to serve. Be forewarned that there are some extra steps to this colossal pie, but don't special occasions merit them? A great addition to holiday dessert…

Swedish Apple Pie

Swedish Apple Pie by Salad Foodie

"Easy as pie" as the saying goes. But this recipe is really EASIER than pie! Sliced Granny Smith apples go in the pie dish first, followed by a quick and simple topping. The topping settles down around the apples during baking and becomes lightly crisp - so good! Based on The Apple Lover's Cookbook by Amy Traverso.

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding by Salad Foodie

A delightful tapioca pudding for a special occasion. So ruby-red pretty, and with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, you'll think you died and went to heaven. If fresh rhubarb is not available substitute frozen, and mash or cut up after simmering if necessary.

Blueberry Buckle

Blueberry Buckle by Salad Foodie

Chock full of blueberries, the tender and not-too-sweet cake batter produces a mid-morning coffee cake or dessert ‘extraordinaire’! A light streusel-like topping bakes to a fine crunchy top and it does indeed buckle or crumple a bit!
