Adapted from a recipe I found in Sunset magazine around 1970. Back in those bad old days there were no frozen cheesecakes and recipes for cheesecake were few and far between. My mother loved cheesecakes and was thrilled when I found a recipe. This makes a firm, dense product. Preparation time doesn't include cooling.
I saw this today on Paula Deen's show and HAD to try it since I had almost a quart of yogurt. It works. And I liked it better than using just yogurt. Cooking time is refrigeration time, preparation is time for butter to cool.
I copied this from The Virginia Housewife by Mary Randolph many, many years ago. It is supposedly the recipe used by Martha Washington. The original recipe called for ingredients by pounds. I used the cheapest, fattiest burger I could find in place of the beef amd suet. I also use a pound of mixed candied fruit instead of the citron and peel. Supposedly this can be processed in a water bath, but I don't have that much confidence. I store the jars in the freezer.
I got this recipe in Home Economics class in Jr. High. I shudder to think how long ago that was. Do not make these too large as the cookies will fall apart. This is good for a cookie press. Chill time is not included.
This is from the first Apple Hill Cookbook attributed to Alice Naslen. Alice, I've made many, many pies by request and shared your recipe with many people. I humbly thank you. I always keep an extra bottle of bitters now. When I open one, I buy another. Once when I ran out of bitters, the store didn't have any! Thanksgiving was not the same!
A tender, fragrant drop cookie (not rolled). I clipped this from a magazine many, many years ago when I went on a quest to find recipes from the countries of my various ancestors. I have no idea what magazine it was, or who submitted it or even if it's really Swedish!
This is DH's favorite apple (or other fruit) crisp. I’ve made it with pears, peaches, apricots, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and combinations. It is easy, fast, and makes great leftovers. It is from the Betty Crocker 1954 Cookbook.
This is from the re-print of the Toll House 1948 cookbook, originally called Chocolate Crunch Cookies. Ruth Graves Wakefield had some wonderful recipes. This is the latest in my search for her original recipe that was the first chocolate chip cookie.
Many years ago (before the Net and Zaar) I cut a Beet Salad recipe out of a magazine. My bulging folio of clippings disappeared a couple of moves ago. This is how I've recreated that salad. Prep time does not include chill time.
This was the first cookie recipe I made outside Home Ec class. I was in high school. We had a tiny, tiny kitchen with an apartment sized stove. My mom wasn't into cooking at all and didn't have baking sheets, so cookies got baked in a couple of pie tins, four at a time. I clipped this from the Nestle chocolate chip wrapper so many years ago. The recipe now is different.
