Mincemeat Crumb Bars
OMG!!!! I just made this following the instructions precisely!! I NEVER WANT MINCE PIE AGAIN These are incredible tasting, give the same satisfaction as mince pie, so much easier, and actually preferred by those who like the mince spicy tasty without eating large portions of mince filling such as you get with pies! Oh..thank you for giving me something easy and delicious to bake, particularly this year when I cannot do my usual heavy duty holiday baking!

Supreme Strawberry Topping
I followed this recipe to the letter. It is not meant to be a strawberry pie filling, so don't expect that! It comes out as a very tasty strawberry topping such as can be used on ice cream or pancakes and such. WE LOVED IT!!!! I will definitely use this recipe time perhaps on my cheescake! Thanks Heislord5!!!

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
I am always searching for the perfect MOCHA 'buttercream' recipe in that I'm attempting to recreate the frosting I remember from my youth, used in bakeries in the North Jersey area, ...just loved it then, and have come close to duplicating it but not quite! This particular recipe I made the following substitutions to: I omitted the vanilla and replaced it with a TBLS of instant coffee granules dissolved in a small amount of hot water, and used cocoa powder in place of 1/2 cup of the sugar..EXCELLENT!!!!! THIS IS THE CLOSEST TO DATE!!!
