Oil Cookies

Rating: 3.5 stars 11
This is a family heirloom recipe from my grandmother. We had to stand by her to come up with measurements because she used a hand of this or a container of that. She called them oil cookies because most of the recipes had lard in them and this one used oil instead. This is a recipe that is called for on every cookie tray at holidays or gatherings. Brush cookies with a basic powder sugar and water icing and while wet, sprinkle colored jimmies to match the occasion. Let dry completely before storing. These cookies freeze great UNFROSTED.

Apple Pie

I remember coming home sullen one day because we'd lost a softball game. Grandma, in her wisdom, suggested, 'Maybe a slice of hot apple pie will make you feel better.' One bite...and Grandma was right.

Plum Pudding

Rating: 4.5 stars 25
An old fashioned plum pudding that was passed down to me from my grandmother, with a modification of using baking mix instead of making the top from scratch. I serve it with ice cream or what I call a Dip made from milk and flavored to taste with cinnamon and vanilla. I let each individual pour on the amount of dip they would like from a small pitcher.

Baked Raspberry Custard

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
This is a absolutely wonderful, yet easy-to-make dessert which can be simple or elegant. It consists of a 'no fail' baked custard filling with fresh raspberries. The custard is mildly sweet and the fresh raspberries add a fresh tartness to the flavor. This dessert will impress anyone and trust me, everyone will ask for the recipe. Serve plain as a 'simple' dessert or add to the elegance by adding a dollop of creme fresh with a fresh raspberry to really give a nice presentation. Add a little mint leaf on the side, this will impress everyone. Serve warm or allow to cool for a firmer consistency.
