I found this in a Good Housekeeping magazine while on vacation at Edisto Beach, SC. This succulent dessert is low in calories, high in fiber, and is chocolate dipped. Luckily, my neighbor has a fig tree.
This recipe is a form of apple crisp that I have made since I was a teenager. It is the only one I use and it consistently tastes good...no matter what type of apples are used.
I have substituted Splenda sugar for both the brown and white sugars called for in this recipe and it comes out tasting just as good, although the 'crisp' part has a little different texture to it, but not bad. I only recommend using real butter in this recipe. This is the type of comfort food that you can have a big bowl of, climb back into bed, and eat under the warmth of the comforters when it is freezing cold outside....I love it!
I usually double the recipe and freeze one dish for use later. Just thaw in refrigerator and reheat if you want it warm.
This is without a doubt *the* most fabulous applesauce I have ever had! It's the only apple sauce my kids will eat, The flavor is incredible! So much richer in flavor than apples that have been steamed or simmered in water. I have actually used whatever apples I happen to have in hand. Even those that are looking tired and not so crisp any more. Great with any pork or chicken entree.
This is the pie that captured my DH's heart! This is a great recipe that uses only 1 pie crust. I recommend using a deep dish pie crust to minimize spill overs.
*Pls note that the first time flour listed in the ingredients, it should be 1/3 cup flour as listed in the directions. I've tried editing this several times and it won't change.
This is an easy recipe that uses a cake mix and a jar of fruit preserves. The basic recipe can be easily altered according to your preference. For example, instead of cherry preserves, try chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or raspberry jam. For lower-fat option, see note at end of instructions.
I know people that have this with their cornflakes :)
Personaly I like them as a snack, but they are great as a quick dessert with custard or ice cream.
I pour the prunes into sterilised glass jars, and they keep for months. If you want these as gifts you can easily double the recipe.
Still sharing my treasure trove of old recipes recently found again. As w/most of the others, the original source has been lost w/the passage of time. This sounds so good to me, is an amazing quick-fix & can be served hot or cold in several ways to create a lovely dessert. Enjoy!
Another delicious recipes that will please diners whether or not they are diabetic. With a few ingredients, plums are transformed into an elegant and flavorful dessert. This recipe comes from a special publication from Diabetic Living.
This is another recipe that comes from my best friend -- who also put it in our church cookbook. It's the only way I ever make strawberry or peach/nectarine pie, because it's about as simple as it gets, especially if you have pre-made crusts on hand. I find if I use bought crusts, I can't quite get two pies out of this recipe, but I usually have leftover sauce. I use baby food jars and put some berries or peaches/nectarines on the bottom topped with the remaining sauce as a treat for my little girls. I sometimes add a layer of cream cheese to the pie, under the berries or peaches, for that little something extra -- and of course, don't skimp on the sweetened whipped cream on top! (According to my dad, whipping cream's not a garnish, it's just as important as the dessert itself!!) Cooking time is refrigeration time.
High Octane chocolate fix, which hasn't any sugar. (as such)
can be frozen. I find it a little too rich as written, and usually fold through 1 cup of whipped cream.
I serve these in small cups (very rich) with their saucer and a cream wafer biscuit.
Cute, scrumptious desserts sized for two. Perfect for summer when there are fresh blueberries and peaches. You can also make this with thawed frozen fruit. So simple and so good! The original recipe is from Cooking for Two, which is published by Taste of Home.
This recipe is from The Delforge Place Bed & Breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas. Use the best ripe pears you can find! Great as dessert or for Christmas morning or anytime you want to do something special for your friends and family.
When I first had Indian rice pudding for dessert at an Indian restaurant, I knew I had to get a recipe for it. This one is great! It's from the Food Network's "Good Eats" with Alton Brown. Note: The ground cardamom is one of the ingredients that gives this rice pudding its Indian flavor, but some people may find it overpowering. My mom liked this recipe, but found the cardamom flavor a bit strong, so use less if you're not sure or leave it out if you don't like it. I think it will still taste great.
This is DH's favorite apple (or other fruit) crisp. I’ve made it with pears, peaches, apricots, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and combinations. It is easy, fast, and makes great leftovers. It is from the Betty Crocker 1954 Cookbook.
