Cookie Recipes

For Sara in FL concerning the Strawberry Punch Bowl Cake. The cake pieces are folded into the liquid mixture. Then dump it into a bowl. Put the strawberry mixture on top. As you dip it, you will get some cake along with the strawberries.
Let me know if this is not clear.

Cracker Toffee

1/4 pound Crackers (either Saltine or Graham Crackers)
2 cups semisweet chocolate or milk chocolate chips- can also use butterscotch
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with Crackers in a single layer. In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil

for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over Crackers and spread the mixture to cover the crackers completely. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 or 6 minutes. Remove from

oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate over all the crackers and sprinkle top with

chopped pecans. Cool completely (about 1/2 day or more) and break into pieces. This candy has never lasted long enough for me to determine its shelf life.

This is for Faye, who in the 4/13 newsletter requested pork and bean salad recipes. I have also seen recipes that include a few tablespoons of pickle relish or sweet pickles, but this is how our family has made it. You could easily increase the mayonnaise, if you want a creamier texture. I hope this is close to what you remember from childhood. I am guessing your relatives used what they had on hand and that precise measurements were not made. My grandmother rarely measured anything, even when making pies, cookies and cakes; she just knew how much of each ingredient to add.

1/4 cup chopped green pepper
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons chopped onions
6 - 8 cooked and crumbled pieces of bacon - optional
Paprika - sprinkle on top - optional

Combine all ingredients in large bowl and refrigerate. Best if made ahead, so flavors can blend for a few hours.

I need a good
homemade lemonade w/ a simple syrup recipe for summer.

A retired teacher I used to teach with sent me this recipe. I haven't been able to make it yet. My daughter made two recipes of cinnamon rolls, so we have enough sweets for now. My friend says this pie is very good. See what you think!

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans - optional

Mix and pat in an 8x8 inch pan, bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until just beginning to turn golden. Do not over bake.

Layer two:
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup whipped topping

Beat together sugar and cream cheese. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on cooled crust.

Layer three:
1 small package coconut cream instant pudding
1 1/2 cups whole milk (any milk will do, but whole milk makes pudding so much tastier)
