My husband loves this one so much he asked a neighbor for it! We eat it at Thanksgiving. Although the original recipe calls it a casserole, it tastes more like a crisp to me. It's very sweet and desserty.
I got this recipe from a friend. I make these often and take them to many potlucks, office parties, the cottage, picnics, children's lunch and the list goes on. Recipe from the cookbook "Just The Best."
In going through my recipe box I found this one, done in my husband's handwriting. They sound like a good alternative lower fat dessert. There is no serving size given so serving size is approximate. Cook time is set time.
A delicately decadent dessert - elegant yet easy enough to prepare for your most honoured guests! Found on FoodNetwork. Courtesy of Simple French Desserts by Jill O'Connor. "This classic French dessert is enriched by poaching the pears in a caramelized sugar syrup spiked with fresh ginger and Poire William, a heady pear brandy. You can drizzle caramel sauce over the pears and ice cream instead of the more traditional chocolate sauce." I'm thinking the caramel sounds lovely!
The Kraft Food & Family magazine just arrived with a sinfully delicious picture of this dessert. It is so easy to prepare and your guests will be delighted! You will need 1-2 9-inch square pans of brownies depending upon how tightly you like to pack your trifle. Chill time is cook time.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and yet it always gets 'oohs' when people see the candies and 'aahs' when they taste them!
I've gotten several z-mails asking about the candy coating. They are wafers that you melt to then dip candies into to coat them. They are usually sold in the candy section of craft or baking stores. I've seen them in the candy making section of Wal-Mart also. If you look at the ingredients photo on Recipe #104941, you'll see a photo of them. They are a different 'stiffness' than white chocolate chips but some reviews have successfully used those when they can't find the candy coating. Hope that helps!
Small danishes that make a great addition to a brunch buffet. You can also make fruit and cream cheese danishes by adding a spoonful of your favorite pie filling prior to baking. There are never any leftovers when I make these.
