From the Farm Journal's Complete Home Baking Book, pg 300. This recipe had more lemon juice than any other recipe I found already posted. Per the cookbook: "Old plantation favorite brought here originally from England. Its buttery-rich custard filling has a nut-brown topping."
There always seems to be at least a little bit of leftover crust when you make a pie. This recipe puts those leftover scraps to use! These are great for the family to snack on before the pie is served. My mom used to always make these when I was growing up and I have continued to do it as well. I use a gluten free pie crust recipe and they still come out great! Sometimes I'll spread strawberry jam in with the butter and omit the cinnamon.
I came up with this after combining a couple different recipes. Use whatever dried mixed fruit you like; I like cranberries, blueberries, raisins, strawberries, etc. Goes great with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. Yummy! Entered: Jun 14, 2005
This is like a flan or creme brulee. In my family it is known that we no longer will accept pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving as this is 100 times better!!! Decadent, rich and oh soooo good! Will keep refrigerated for up to 2 days (but you'll eat it all before then!)
This recipe is so simple and versatile. On a picnic we don't worry about dirty hands, we just pull down the foil and eat til it's gone. Using tortillas are a great way to get the kids involved in making their own snacks. My grandkids have put just about everything in them including candy bars, jelly, and as simple as cinnamon, butter and sugar. One of their favorites is cinnamon and marshmallow,
This easy, old fashioned family recipe goes back more than 5 generations - from Kate Kelly of Kanata, Ontario! Make your own pastry base or buy a ready made shell to save time. You can aso make this with a full pastry or lattice top. Try adding a tsp of orange zest to the filling - its delicious!
When my DH was young his best friend was Keith. Keith's 'Grandma Weeks' was always whipping up wonderful dishes for the neighborhood children to enjoy. Keith asked for and preserved this recipe from 'Grandma Weeks' before she passed. I made it two years ago and it really is very easy...and very rich. I could only have a small piece which was fine with DH because he ate the rest!
