My now 79 year old father always makes the dressing for Thanksgiving every year and has never used a written recipe. He says he just makes it the way his mother did! I finally sat down with him one Thanksgiving and wrote down what he did, and this is the result. It makes a baked, moist bread-like dressing that freezes well and is absolutely out of this world!
This recipe was my grandmother's and the smell of this cake baking is the smell of Christmas to our family! It is a very dense, heavy cake, almost more like a bread, and loaded with dates, cherries and nuts. We usually use home-grown black walnuts in ours! Do not be intimidated by the number of steps it takes to make this cake-it actually goes together very quickly and is well worth the trouble.
These are cinnamon-peanut butter cookies with a chocolate "surprise" inside. If you make the dough air-tight around the chocolate stars the chocolate will stay semi-solid even after the cookies cool. A former 4H-club award winner!
A holiday tradition at our house, and we often double the recipe. Rolling out the balls is a little time-consuming, but a great job to put your teenagers onto! Do not try to dip the balls in the chocolate on a rainy or very humid day, as the chocolate will not be smooth and cooperative!
This is always a favorite at family gatherings. Be sure to use a large glass bowl to show off the layers. You can substitute low-fat or even non-fat mayonnaise, sour cream, and cheese to make it a little bit healthier.
