A couple of years ago, I decided to search out the perfect pumpkin muffin. I Googled & got hundreds of hits. I printed out the ones that looked like winners & tried a few. When I got to this one, my search ended. These muffins are very rich & obviously not diet food! But they are one of my favorites & I hope you will enjoy them too. The original recipe called for walnuts & fewer raisins, but I adapted them to my tastes.
I recently made this recipe using about 2/3s of the sugar & substituting fresh chopped cranberries for the raisins. It was really good that way too.
This recipe is very simple, but if you do not know how to make candy then please follow instructions precisely. I have altered the instructions after a few reviews that it was crumbly. This is not the recipes fault, it is inexperience. Proper candy making is about temperatures. 4 minutes of boiling (from the time the first small bubbles form) bring this candy up to proper fudge/softball temperature as long as you are cooking over medium heat. When in doubt, use a thermometer.
I know... Not ANOTHER chocolate chip cookie recipe... BUT, you'll find that these are sheer perfection, large bakery-style, thick and chewy, cookies that taste as good as they look with a fool-proof set of instructions. It was pointed out to me that this recipe is from Baking Illustrated, perhaps so as I wrote down the ingredients from a morning show years ago! Thanks for letting me know.
This recipe is perfect for those watching their middles!
One of my favourite breakfast or snack recipes for those cold winter, or cooler fall mornings. It is superb as a Fat-Free dessert option too!
This recipe is super-easy, high-fiber, super-healthy, and tastes delicious and decadent- like a batch of freshly baked brownies or chocolate cake, still warm from the oven.
These are wonderful, quick cookies. It is one of the first things I learned to "cook." You can add more or less oats (3 cups work best for me). I have found that the weather makes a difference on the consistency. It is very important not to boil them for longer than a minute.
I fill my cookie jar frequently with these delicious cookies. They're a perfect treat for an afternoon cup of coffee or to tuck into a loved one's lunch. If you don't care for raisins, these cookies are equally good without them.
This recipe is one of my favorite make ahead desserts but ancient-I got it via my mother from an aunt-I think it is probably well over 50 years old. Whenever they invented the marshmallow... When did they invent the marshmallow?
I found this recipe in a magazine and changed it to make a low fat and lower sugar version! Im sure you could substitute sugar for Splenda or reduce amount of sugar if desired although I haven't tried it
While this recipe is good any time it is the first one requested when the fall apples ripen. It was passed to me by a family member. The recipe calls for an 8x8 deep baking pan. Family member uses a corning ware casserole dish for the baking which makes for a lovely dessert. I often bake it in a pie plate and when cool slice and serve as you would pie. Using white sugar in the crumb crust has it so tasting like pastry. Quick and easy to make. NOTE - recently found this recipe from an old family cookbook is called aunties 'Old Fashioned Crumb Cake' and calls for baking in a 425 oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until brown and crisp. Just made it and found baked at the higher temperature it very like an apple crisp - an absolutely delicious version of Almost Apple Pie and another great apple dessert to serve family and friends. Ovens vary - I used a slightly lower oven temp.
