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…

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake by Hungry Jenny

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter. You can easily make this completely gluten-free by using gluten-free baking powder too. This was made in an 8" square tin.

Soft Pear and Cranberry Squares

Soft Pear and Cranberry Squares by Hungry Jenny

Aside from the egg, this is otherwise dairy-free! Use very ripe pears for best results. This recipe is for a 13 x 8" traybake (32 squares) Cover the top with baking paper or foil during the last 10 minutes to avoid the top over-browning. http://hungryjenny.blogspot.com/2011/03/soft-pear-and-cranberry-squares.html

Travel Gingerbread Cookies

Travel Gingerbread Cookies by Hungry Jenny

Make these soft gingerbread cookies to take on your travels if you suffer from travel sickness - the calming effects that ginger has on the stomach should help to relieve the symptoms. Perfect for kids too. They should be lightly golden and still a little soft when you take them out - they will firm up a little as they cool down…

Turkey Stuffing Puffs

Turkey Stuffing Puffs by Hungry Jenny

This makes approximately 24 trees, but you can easily use up any scraps of pastry or filling to create smaller open top pastries with just the filling on top :-) I used a 4" tree cutter to make the cranberry sauce 'tinsel' topped trees! http://hungryjenny.blogspot.com/2010/12/friday-pie-day-turkey-stuffing-puffs.html
