I found this recipe in a recent cookbook swap.  Sounds intriguing.

Knock You Nakeds

1 pkg (18-1/2 oz) German chocolate cake mix

1 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup evaporated milk, divided

3/4 cup butter, melted

60 vanilla caramels, unwrapped (one 14 ounce pkg)

1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

In a large mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and melted butter.  Press half of the batter into the bottom of a greased 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish.  Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 8 minutes.

In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt caramels with remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk.  When caramel mixture is well mixed, pour over baked layer.  Cover with chocolate morsels.  Pour remaining batter on top of morsels.  Return to preheated 350 degree oven and bake 18 minutes.  Let cool before cutting into squares.

Used to be able to get Ranger cookies from a Kroger store near where my mother lived, was hooked on the darn things.  Now am trying to find a recipe for the cookies but the recipes I find have only egg and vanilla for liquid and by the time you mix the flour, oatmeal, sugar, brown sugar and shortening, rice krispies together the "dough" will not hold together to form a walnut size ball before baking.  Anyone have a good recipe for Ranger cookies with maybe more liquid ingredients or something?

Here's my family's current favorite.

Carnival Cruiselines Warm Chocolate Melting Cake

  • 7 oz good quality dark chocolate (look for 75% to 85% cacao)
  • 7 oz butter (not margarine!)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 c sugar
  • 3/4 c flour
  • Vanilla ice cream

Melt chocolate and butter together over low heat. Stir until smooth and let cool enough so that it won't cook the eggs.

Beat eggs and sugar together. Stir in chocolate mixture, then flour.

Spoon batter into an ungreased muffin tin, filling each pan about 1/4" from the top. You can refrigerate the batter here. If you use cupcake wrappers in your muffin tin, the individual cakes will solidify enough that you can remove them and put them in another container and just put the number you need back into the muffin tin to bake. Keep the rest in the fridge and eat within a few days.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake 9 minutes if cakes are at room temperature, 10 minutes if cold. Serve warm cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The center of the cake will be hot and have the consistency of a thick fudge sauce.

I know Im late but here goes. I make these every year at Christmas and get lots of requests for them. In  fact I trade a batch for a co-worker's home made tamales

 
99% Fat Free Yummy Biscotti:
 

2-1/4 cup flour

1 cup sugar 

1 Tsp baking POWDER

1/2 Tsp Baking SODA

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Nutmeg

2 eggs

2 egg whites

1 TBS Almond or Vanilla Extract (I use Vanilla)

3/4 cup sliced almonds

6 oz dried cranberries

 

Combine dry ingredients in med. mixing bowl. Whisk whole eggs, whites and extract in another bowl. Add to dry ingredients (I add the dry ingredients to the eggs a little at a time to make it easier to mix). Its going to end up being a big ball of dough. Add dried cranberries and almonds, mix thoroughly.

On floured surface, divide batter in half and roll each half into a log (that fits a standard cookie sheet). Flatten log by patting it (not way flat, just about 1-1/2 -2 inches wide). Bake 30 minutes in 325 degree oven. Remove and let cool. Reduce oven to 300. Remove logs and slice into slices. Place slices back on cookie sheet standing up. Bake again for 20 minutes til toasted.

Dutch Apple Pie

  • 9" pie shell
  • 5 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place apples in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine 2 tbsp flour, sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Mix well, then add to apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated. *Note: Now this is the tricky part....if you like your pies "juicy" leave just as is, if not, drain off some of the liquid so that the pie will be firmer.

Place apple mixture in pie shell and dot with 2 tbsp butter. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil lightly on top of filling, but do not seal. Bake for 10 minutes.

While filling is baking, make streusel topping. Combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, brown sugar, oats and lemon peel in a bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture is crumbly. Remove filling from oven and sprinkle streusel on top.

Reduce heat to 375 degrees. Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning. Bake an additional 30-35 minutes, until streusel is browned and apples are tender.

World's Best Snickerdoodles

  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 T. white sugar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

 Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt, set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the eggs, milk, vanilla and almond extracts. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until fully incorporated. Cover the bowl and chill for 1-2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. In a shallow bowl or saucer, stir together the remaining white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll the chilled dough into 1" balls, and then roll the balls in the sugar mixture. Place cookies 2" apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for about 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies begin to brown at the edges. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

**NOTE: I keep the dough in the refrigerator while I'm baking. The dough is much easier to handle well chilled. ***
