Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation

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!…

Fabulous 3 Cherry Pie

Fabulous 3 Cherry Pie by Amos Miller

Most folks don't have the luxury of owning a personal cherry orchard, so I modified this recipe using ingredients available at most stores. You'll save the picking and pitting time and end up with a fabulous pie that will thrill even those who say they do not care for cherry pie (I've had it happen). As a native-born…

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.

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…

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…

Black Cherry Crumble

Black Cherry Crumble by Amos Miller

I originally saw Paula Deen make her version of this dish and I came up with a couple of really good modifications which folks have liked when I served it for dessert. I believe this is an improved recipe. I made this with gluten free (and lactose intolerant) diners in mind, but you can feel free to subtitute regular flour where…

Apple Harvest Cake

Apple Harvest Cake by Salad Foodie

For apple season this is a slam-dunk! It's especially pleasing for its moistness and chunks of apple, plus folks appreciate a cake without frosting for a change! This one's a keeper for your fall pot lucks! Single recipe makes an 8" x 8" size; double it for a 9" x 13" pan for pot lucks.

Canned Apple Pie Filling/ Apple Crisp

Canned Apple Pie Filling/ Apple Crisp by J. Gino Genovesi

Apples are a very versatile fruit. Apples are used in many pastries, pies and salads. I think apples are used more in pies than in other way. . It save lots of time to have a "done" product for use. This canned recipe is both economical and good. Try this recipe and let me know if you like it.
