    Can anyone please help me locate 1 recipe card from the 1984 My Great Recipe Box Collection..I seem to have misplaced it and have been all over the internet looking for someone who has the collection and is willing to share. The one I am looking for is the Black bottom pie index card from section 22 - pies & tarts......

    A simple double sided scan would be awesome so I can re-file it.

    thank you

    Nobody has responded to this request, but i just came across with this similar recipe that maybe could be the one that dopefish was looking for on March 8, so here it is what I found in an old website:

    From Vintage Recipes
    This recipe was clipped from a newspaper and found in a large collection, date unknown. I’ve typed it below along with a scanned copy.

    4 egg yolks
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    2 cups milk, scalded
    1 1/2 tablespoons gelatin
    2 tablespoons cold water
    2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    4 tablespoons chocolate mint cordial
    4 eggs whites, stiffly beaten
    1/2 cup sugar

    Coconut Crumb Crust
    Whipped cream, chocolate curls

    Directions for the filling:
    Combine egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch in top of double boiler. Gradually add scalded milk, stirring constantly. Cook over hot water until mixture thickens. Soften gelatin in cold water and add to thickened mixture, mixing well. Divide thickened mixture into two parts.
    Add melted chocolate and 1 teaspoon vanilla to one part and pour into prepared crumb shell. Refrigerate until firm.
    To the other half add chocolate mint cordial. Cover the chocolate filling with the meringue of egg whites to which sugar has been added and refrigerate again. At serving time top with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

    Coconut Crumb Crust:
    Combine crumbs (crumbled cake, graham crackers, or vanilla wafers) with equal parts of shredded coconut. Bind together with melted butter. Press firmly into pie plate and chill until firm. Bake in a 325-degree oven 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Note: Graham cracker, vanilla wafer or other crumb crust may be substituted.

    There are also three pages of Black Bottom Pies in the database. Many are probably variations you might not want, but it would be worth taking a look to see if one of the thirty-three is close to that specific recipe as you recall it.

    I can send the recipe. Do you know the number or something close? I have a Black Cherry Tart (Index 25 Card 59) and Chocolate Laced Walnut Pie (Index 25 Card 133).

    Per chance can you send me the S cookie recipe in Index 26. I have been looking for this recipe. I would appreciate any help thanks

    Pies and Tarts are in Section 25. Is there are different name for the pie?

    I found it but I don't know how to post the picture. I sent you a personal message with my email so that you can send me a message. Then I can attach the recipe. Or you can tell me how to attach it to a post.

    Tonka and Dopefish, it is important for you to know this:

    It is NOT safe for anybody to post private e-mail addresses in these forums because we could receive LOTS of spam, so it is better for you to delete it by clicking the work "Edit" under your message and then delete it, ok?. icon_biggrin.gif

    Use Send a Message to transfer private information like that, spambots can harvest your email addresses from any public forum (like this).

    I have the recipe for Black Bottom pie from the My Great Recipes collection. Also have Basic Fluffy Pancakes.
    Have scan the cards front and back but I can't seem to bring your post up on my computer just my phone. If you provide me with your email address I will send that way or however you suggest. Nancy

    I am looking for a recipe from a box set my mom used to have and none of us seem to know where it went. The recipe I believe was just called .'Christmas Pie' and mostly I remember chopping up fresh cranberries for it. If anyone could help that would be great!! Thank you!
