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.

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…

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…

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…

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust by Farrell May Podgorsek

This crust complements many fillings. The Carmelized Apple in Cider Sauce and tart crust are prepared and cooked separately, then combined and baked for a few minutes. The crust stays flaky and the apples soft and carmelized. It was a perfect ending for Thanksgiving dinner. Be sure to always use a good quality drinking sherry.…

Upside-Down Caramel Apple Pie

Upside-Down Caramel Apple Pie by Robyn Savoie

If there's pineapple upside-down cake, why not pie? Fall is here and why not use apples instead of pineapple? On the internet there's a few listings for this pie. Hardly any complaints except for baking to long or it sticking to the pie plate. We know the tricks to prevent the sticking. Use non-stick cooking spray,…

Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler by maribeth carson

This is a great old fashioned cobbler recipe defiantly worth the extra effort. My family enjoys this in their own unique ways. My hubby enjoys his cold with a sprinkle of sugar while I only like it hot with a sprinkle of sugar and dash of milk. My kids will eat it hot or cold with more than a sprinkle of sugar and dash of milk. I have…
