Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie.

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British)

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British) by Marlin Rinehart

This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder. One warning, however: 1) use a small, "thick-bottom" saucepan, and 2) cook over low heat and don't allow the mixture to boil or it will…

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…

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies by Veronica Gantley

These cookies are almost as easy to bake as they are to eat. This is a recipe my mom used to make when we were growing up. She used to make hers in bars not cookies. Somehow that seemed easier. So either way you make these, they are very easy to make. My daughter is fond of these cookies also.

Plain Old Oatmeal Cookies

Plain Old Oatmeal Cookies by Kevin Olomon

I have enjoyed oatmeal cookies with cinnamon, ginger and other dessert spices added to the dough and while they are perfectly delicious, this dough doesn’t include them. I find I personally prefer an undistracted cookie that highlights the simple toastiness of the oats and the rich brown sugar- but you may certainly throw in the…
