Here are some recent recipes I've made or had at a friend's house

Blonde Brownies - 12 Brownies

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Measure 1 cup sifted flour. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sift again. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Melt 1/3 cup butter. Add 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar and mix well. Cool slightly.
  4. Add egg (beaten) and vanilla. Blend well. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing well.
  5. Gently mix in chocolate chops
  6. Spread in 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

My friend Jenny made these next two recipes - both were delicious! I wanted to pass them on so everyone else could enjoy them too!!

Pumpkin Streusel Bars

  • 1 ¾ cup All purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar; packecd
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Cold Butter; cut up
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 cup Pecans; chopped
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. Allspice
  • ½ tsp. Salt

Heat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl combine flour and sugars. Cut in butter till coarse texture. Stir in nuts. Reserve 1 cup of mixture and press remainder firmly into the bottom and half way up the sides of a 12X7” backing dish. In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Mix well and pout over crust. Top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 55 minutes or till golden. Cool. NOTES: Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped topping if desired.

Trifole Dessert

  • 1 Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 boxes of instant choc. pudding (use less milk here, we don't want soupy pudding)
  • 1 large (12 oz.) Cool Whip
  • Heath Bits Candy (crunched up)

After baking the cake in a 9X13 pan, cut the cake into 2 inch squares

Layer cake, then pudding,then cool whip, then sprinkle Heath bits on top of cool whip. Repeat until all is gone!

**I'm really excited about this recipe because it's so good, but so easy!! And you can change it around...brownies instead of yellow cake, or even a Christmas twist with peppermint bark!
