This is another of our family favorites that makes for an excellent addition to the serving tray. Looks very appealing on the holiday platter and great for special occasions. I often substitute the graham crumbs with crushed Nillas. Just as good untinted - but as my mom reminds me " always make the icing using the juice from a real lemon" - realemon will work but she's right ... that lemon juice makes for awesome!
Made this recipe up myself after finding out I didn't have enough p.b. to make my usual p.b. granola. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As most granola's go, feel free to add/delete ingredients to your own likes/dislikes.
When I lived in New York, I used to get this delicious tri-color cookie from the Italian Bakery every year for the holidays. Once I moved down south, I was no longer able to get them. I found this recipe in Good Housekeepings "100 best Italian Recipes". The directions seem long and scary, but these cookies are actually very easy to make. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and friends do.
This is the cat's Meow! I know you are saying there are already a lot of recipes on this site for the same thing, I researched them before posting mine and this one is just a little different so here it is. Everyone I have ever served this to absolutely goes beserk over the taste and says it's as good as the real thing. It's so much cheaper too! I found this on an internet site, but can't remember which one, it was to long and to many fifths ago!! You can easily double the recipe.
Fragolo is a very sweet Italian strawberry liqueur that is a great digestivo or after dinner drink. The liqueur not only tastes great but is a beautiful feast for the eyes. Very easy recipe...the hardest part is waiting 7 months for it to macerate. Be sure to shake it when you peek in on its progress. Pour it in an elegant bottle and seal with wax and give as a gift. Hopefully, your friend will share. A tablespoon in a pie crust or added to strawberry pie has phenomenal results.
Before Cool Whip and instant pudding, this was how a cream pie was made. If you leave out the bananas, you have vanilla cream pie. If you add 1 cup shredded coconut to milk as it's being heated, you have coconut cream pie.
This recipe comes from a community church cookbook. It is easy and delicious. I have friends that have made this with other flavor combinations and the result has always been good thus far. The best part is since it is not "iced", we can consider it a lower-fat snacking cake. LOL!
