These are sandwich cookies, filled with a double filling of raspberry preserves and white frosting. I'd never had these before, so I don't have anything to compare these to. But these are delicious! Cook time is for one sheet of cookies.
Whether they come from Washington or Idaho, my family enjoys potatoes in almost any form! This recipe came from one of those sample packs sent in the mail. I'm not sure what the original name was but my family loves NW Slicey Potatoes! They are especially good with meatloaf, barbecue, or any other beef dish.
This recipe was demonstrated by a fellow classmate at an evening course on fish cookery that I took over 30 years ago. It sounded odd - who puts cheddar cheese with scallops!? but tasted delicious. Only use instant potatoes if you can get high quality ones that don't have artificial ingredients or flavors. This make a nice main course served with a salad though would be great served in smaller individual portions as an appetizer. If you make this with bay scallops you may want to reduce the cooking time so you don't end up with rubbery scallops. I like to use a medium sized scallops, if using large ones you may want to cut them in half. Please note that you need to reserve some of the cooking liquid when draining the scallops. Cooking time does not include preparing mashed potatoes.
With no peeling to be done, plum pie is one of the easiest and fastest pies to make, and sooooo good especially with whipped cream or ice cream on top. Prep time doesn't include making the crust. Use your favorite homemade double crust pie shell, or the dreaded store bought - either way it's as easy as Pie!
I use Washington potatoes but any good russet works well. This has been a great side dish that everyone loves and it is perfect for a potluck. I've always made this in my Cuisinart, no need to wash between steps. The prep time is for using a food processor, but you can do it the old fashioned way too!
I was first inspired by my brother putting basic garlic bread in foil on the grill - I got a bit carried away in going beyond basic - and decided the foil just gets in the way! This has become a favorite of family and friends and I make it all summer long. When the weather turns cold you can cook it under the broiler.
This recipe is very flexible, adapt the seasonings and add-ins to your family's preferences. Don't use the rustic artisan breads for this - head to the grocery and buy the inexpensive store bakery loaves.
After first trying this years ago my 2nd son declared -who needs banana bread?! - and this became our favorite choice for doing away with overripe bananas. The recipe originally had an optional chocolate glaze, I've always skipped it and just added a light dusting of confectionary sugar. This is a pretty sturdy cake which makes it great for picnics, potlucks and lunch bags - the same son recently took 1/2 a cake with him for the drive back to S.CA!
An extra note - seeing some of the comments - this is not a tall cake it only rises a littel more than half way up the pan. Ovens are different - go with a shorter cooking time and check to see if needs more.
This is a simple, homey, comfort food that everyone seems to love. I adapted this in the late '70s from a recipe I found in a Yankee Magazine Cookbook. If you like lots of topping add half again or double it (double is pretty sweet). This is the perfect recipe for potlucks and parties as you can make it ahead, and it travels well. I love it for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
