Nothing better than biting into a moist chocolate cupcake and being surprised by a sweet creamy filling! Unless you're my husband, who doesn't like frosting. . . This is an adaptation of my MIL's recipe for Ho Ho Cupcakes. It is mostly from scratch, but can be simplified by substituting a can of your favorite prepared frosting for the tops of the cupcakes. These are a huge hit at my childrens’ birthday parties, with the adults as well as the kids!
This recipe is from the mother of a student, and it is the BEST peanut butter fudge I have ever had. I usually use real butter and not margarine when I cook, so I will substitute the margarine in this recipe. From what I have tasted, however, it is still delicious when made with margarine.
I don't bake very much, but this recipe really caught my eye. It's from the March/April 2007 Simple and Delicious magazine. I couldn't find the white chocolate instant pudding so I used French vanilla and it came out outstanding. It's an awesome dessert! The passive cook time includes time to allow the brownies to cool, and chill.
This cake was brought to work by one of my friends and I begged her for the recipe. It is extremely moist due to the fact that it is frozen for at least 2 days until you defrost it and serve it. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have this in your freezer? I have kept this for a month in the freezer and it is still great!
I made this pie this weekend. It's adapted from The Perfect Recipe cookbook by Pam Anderson. Wow, we agreed it was the best lemon meringue pie recipe we'd ever had. The filling is very lemony sweet/tart and fluffy. The meringue is tall and fluffy/light. Prep times are estimated. It takes a little time, but is well worth it. Lemon meringue pie was first invented in Philadelphia. This recipe represents the Mid-Atlantic U.S. region.
The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
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.
Here it is folks! First time ever in print! My Mom's famous hot chocolate sauce for ice cream sundaes. These are ingredients you more than likely always have on hand. Try this once and you will never buy store bought sauce again!
so tasty topping desserts. so useful in cooking. This takes no time at all to mix up, but make it the night before you need to use it in a recipe (at least) as it does need 12-14 hours for the cream to sour.
I first saw these at a bake sale and was so impressed. You bake a ball of dough in a mini-muffin tin, bake, and press a Reese's peanut butter cup into it after you take it out of oven. You are left with a picture-perfect tart, receiving "oohs and aahs" and "how did you do it?" You could even use the refrigerated sugar/peanut butter cookie dough too.
This recipe comes from a neighbor we used to have. She'd bring it to all the neighborhood gatherings. VERY YUMMY! Having said that... I haven't tried actually making it yet, so if you decide to try it, let me know what you think.
If made according to directions below you will get 36 cupcakes, if desired you can fill with muffin tins half way (instead of 3/4 full) with the cake batter and use a larger dollup of the cream cheese mixture to make 18 cupcakes instead of 36.
