The secret to these cookies is baking them at a low temperature.They are dense like a scone, with a cake-like inside. Recipe from "The Market" in Denver. My teenaged son LOVES these!
Tip: I flatten the cookies slightly with a greased bottom of a measuring cup, about halfway through baking, which produces a flatter cookie.
Hands down, the BEST cream pie recipe I've ever tasted! It was passed down from my mom, who got it from a neighbour while living briefly in Los Angeles way back in 1969. The chocolate variation has been the universal birthday 'cake' in my family for almost as long as I can remember. I've adapted it to be more microwave friendly and even less time-consuming than the original. (Cooking time is cooling time) In case you don't have a microwave or just want to try this on the stovetop, see my cousin CrystalB's Recipe#108268 for the method.
I like to serve this hearty soup in October and November, perfect for a fall meal. This recipe came from Gourmet magazine and makes a meaty, spicy and smoky soup, thickened by pureed black beans. Enjoy!
This pumpkin recipe is just outstanding. It is a great change from Pumpkin Pie and it serves so many more people. Every time I serve it, even the pumpkin pie haters beg for the recipe and add it to their Thanksgiving menu the following year. Please try it, I know you will just love it!!!!
My grandmother gave me this apple pie recipe after she made it for me during a visit about 5 years ago. I like to use Granny Smith apples, leave the peel on, and cut slices that are a little thick, but do whatever you wish! This is a very good pie and I'm always asked to make it! Thanks, Grandma!! (Very good served with vanilla ice cream!)
Add in some chopped cranberries to the cookie mixture if desired, and to take these cookies to yet another level sprinkle some chopped pecans or walnuts on top of the icing, adjust the spice amount starting with the lower amount for a mild spice flavor --- if you prefer a harder glaze use recipe#266529
This is my version of a recipe I found a couple of years ago. It is light and fluffy with rich, sweet and spicy flavour. I highly recommend using:
for the Pumpkin Pie Spice but whatever recipe or store bought version you like will do. It is really important for the frosting that the cream cheese and butter be at room temperature. I recommend leaving them out over night or for at least 6 hours before making the frosting. This recipe also makes great mini-cupcakes. Just make sure to reduce the baking time slightly.
Heres a new look at an old favorite. Yumm. I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/3 tsp of nutmeg, 1/2 a cup of brown sugar and a really good handful of raisins (not originally ask for at all). After all, isn't it the good stuff in the middle that makes a cinnamon bun?
The three other Apple Crunch recipes are somewhat similar, but this is our family version. We don't use brown sugar, there is no crust (as in the apple crumb pies), and we mix it a little differently. This also had it's beginnings in a church cookbook. We serve it warm (hot) from the oven, with either ice cream on top, or a lot of milk.
This is a yummie alternative to an old favorite. The topping is sweet and the apples are a little tart. I posted this with a ready-to-bake pie crust, but I have found a homemade crust is always better! There are tons of apples in this pie but they cook down during baking. This is delicious topped with vanillia ice cream.
Versatile fall favorite in our house. Great with spiced coffee or chai. Tasty kid approved treat - our toddler loves slices of this cake when it's still warm from the oven. Serve warm slices of cake with vanilla ice cream or warm homemade custard sauce and whipped cream for an excellent dessert. Fabulous, no matter how you slice it!
Upstate NY is known for its many varieties of apples. NY State cooks create wonderful meals with the local apples including this pie from The Finger Lake region. From "Applehood and Motherpie" (Jr League of Rochester, NY). My favorite apples to use are Northern Spies but any firm baking apple will be a delight!
I adopted this recipe...from the reviews it looks like this is a delicious cake, and is especially good the second day. I'd like some input on how long you bake it. Let's give it a try! I'll add this to the great state of Washington where they grow wonderful apples.
