Custard is a British institution! Sponge puddings and crumbles just wouldn't be the same without it! This will make a custard of a pouring consistency. IMPORTANT: In order to have a smooth (not lumpy) custard, use a heavy-bottomed saucepan, and stir constantly! If you have to walk away from the stove, remove saucepan from heat. Another delicious find from Great British Cooking.
I've made these a few times, and they've turned out perfect each time! A traditional Yorkshire pudding is made with beef drippings but this recipe uses butter. If you have drippings, by all means use the drippings instead of the butter!
This delicious side dish is made with stuffing mix, making it quick and easy to prepare! I really enjoy it with the carrots, but they can be omitted if desired. The recipe will make about 10 servings, but can easily be halved. (Just reduce cooking time to about 2 hours.)
I originally found this in Betty Crocker's New Christmas Cookbook, and I have made these a number of times. To give the cookies a festive look, dip half of each cookie into melted vanilla coating! (Cooking time does not include refrigeration time.)
This pie is scrumptious, and makes a nice change from regular pumpkin pie! I originally found this in TOH's Holiday Celebrations Cookbook. Make sure you use a deep dish pastry shell; it's just the right size to hold the filling. This is also superb when left as a regular pumpkin pie, omitting the topping.
I make this every Christmas. It is tasty and colorful, and it looks so pretty on the dessert tray! Instead of using just raisins, I like to use a mixture of raisins, zante currants and white raisins. (sultanas.) It makes a terrific food gift, too!
