My Moms' traditional recipe. You can fill with your favorite fruit flavors. Our family loves apricot, cherry and raspberry. This recipe uses 2 1/2 cans of Solo cake & pastry filling so choose your favorite three flavors. Dough must be refrigerated overnight before baking.
A moist tender bisciut inside, with a golden buttery crunch outside. After much searching for the holy grail of southern cooking, (a great buttermilk biscuit) I developed this recipe that I am very proud of. It is blending of the qualities I wanted in a bisuit. Cruchy, tender, buttermik tang, and hearty enough to stand up to breakfast gravy and moist enough to serve with chicken and dumplings. Enjoy!
Rolled cookie with coconut pecan frosting spooned in the center. Moist cookie tastes like the wonderful cake! Labor intensive but really worth it. Dough needs to be refrigerated 6-8 hours before baking for best results. Baked cookies freeze very well.
This is the actual recipe used in the Chicago public schools, my Mom was the manager in the cafeteria for many years. This recipe was also published in a Chicago newspaper as one of the favorites. The cookie has a wonderful butter flavor and very delicate texture. Have one with a little carton of milk and you will feel young again. Enjoy!
