Sugar Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
My mom always used to make sugar cream pie. It's been years since she's made it (she can no longer cook) so I'd forgotten about it, but I came across her recipe. It's very similar to this, but she used full whipping cream instead of half-and-half, and 1/4 cup cornstarch. You should get much better results if you make those changes. Flour changes the taste and texture in a manner I don't like, and I would NEVER omit the vanilla extract! Regardless of whether it "evaporates" (the only part that does is the alcohol), it gives it that nice vanilla taste that makes it a sugar cream pie!

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
I too made these with a few subs--Honey instead of agave because agave is NOT healthy; safflower oil instead of canola because canola is NOT healthy; and I also added some pureed carrots (about 1/4 cup) to punch up the veggie value, and the cookies were moist, chewy, and delish! I'm a cloves fan so I added 1/4 tsp of that too. I'm planning to tweak the recipe a bit for seasonal variety, adding cranberies and pumpkin, etc. Great basic recipe!

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Mmmmm! Chewy-sweet and good! I like to make two variations as well: 1) I slightly flatten the balls and bake as directed, then dip halfway into melted semisweet chocolate; or, 2) I press a dark chocolate Hershey's kiss in the center of the cookies while still warm. Yummy!

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
These cookies are very easy to make and melt in your mouth! The traditional recipe calls for almonds, but I also like to use finely chopped walnuts or pecans because of their softer texture. The secret to keeping the powdered sugar on while not having to use a whole box of powdered sugar is to dredge the cookies the first time while still slightly warm, so the powdered sugar gets melted and is a bit "tacky." Then allow them to cool fully, then re-roll them in powdered sugar. They will cover completely and look beautiful, and the sugar will stay on! For Christmas, I add a final light dusting in red or green sugar sprinkles over the powdered sugar.
