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…

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

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.

Plum Pineapple Jam

Plum Pineapple Jam by Salad Foodie

I devised this recipe when I wanted a variation of plum jam and thought why not use canned crushed pineapple? The result was beautiful jewel-tone jam with a pleasing fruit combo of flavors and textures. No added commercial pectin here, so if the thought of standing and stirring, oh about a half hour, scares you away, go with the…

Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad

Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad by Angie Morris

This Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad has been a favorite in our family for many years especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I found it in a magazine years ago and credit for this goes to Helen Clement of Hemet, California. I chose to reduce her nutmeg amount from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon , which gives it just a tiny hint of nutmeg,…

Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

Someone turned me on to Dr. Johanna Budwig recently. I read a bit about her research and her diet online. While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…

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…

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps by Robyn Savoie

Two autumn standards, pumpkin and apple. I joined Schnapps Liquor with apple in this lovely spread. Apple Schnapps really adds a surprising element to this. This spread is wonderful on toast, pancakes, waffles and in pumpkin pie! I might experiment one of these days and see how it would work in traditional apple pie

Banana Split Pie

Banana Split Pie by Mary Joseph

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a baker, but this is an old family recipe that has been gratiously "given" to me for use in my cookbook so I want to share it here with you all. Its one of the very few dessert recipes I make and its addicting, so look out. To this day if I show up to Thanksgiving without this people are…

Pear Pie

Pear Pie by Jasmine Donnell

This is a great pie that is comparable to an apple pie, but it doesn't seem as sweet. The pears and cinnamon work wonderful together. Add some whipped cream for a perfect amount of extra subtle sweetness. Bosc pears work best for winter season. For a more complex flavor, use a few different types of pears or a different pear for…
