Lately I have been been spending some time in the "cookie" sections of my Grandma's recipe boxes. There are plenty of cookie choices to sort through and I can find a recipe to solve many different things...like pecans that should be cooked, the cook's craving for chocolate or a use for some of that leftover Halloween candy....yep, still had some Hershey Bars left over so I was looking for a way to solve for that too! I can't imagine my Grandma making these, but I can imagine her tasting them and wanting the recipe. The reason I know she would have liked them was she loved chocolate. In fact, we have a "family" recipe for fudge that I doubt I will ever share in my blog...I might make it and take a picture for you, but I have come to believe that it is "top secret" and can't be shared. My Grandma also loved Chocolate covered cherries...she always had some, tucked away in the back of the refrigerator where unless you were looking for them, you wouldn't see them. And another thing about my Grandma...she LOVED Russell Stover's candy...give her box of chocolates and she was as happy with this as she would have been if you'd of given her a million bucks! As to why I don't think she would have made these...well, I just don't think she would have had the patience to "frost" a bunch of cookies...for the work, she would have just made fudge or reached for a piece of that Russell Stover's candy. Bubba is having a hard time adjusting to the new scale, so he did give these a "7" (which proves my point), so I would convert these to a "S". PS...this recipe has no directions...just contents...I have some theories I plan to share with you in an upcoming post about these lack of directions, etc.
2 sq. choc. melted - added last 1 c. sugar 1/2 c. butter 1 egg - don't beat 1/2 c. milk 1 c. nuts 1 1/2 c. flour 2 tsp B. powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla Bake 370 to 400 degrees F. Frost with hersheys.
A while ago I inherited my grandma's recipe boxes, in fact 7 of them and for quite some time I have been wondering what to do with all those recipes. Well, I finally figured it out, I am going to cook my way through those boxes, I'll share the recipes and pictures of the food I cook with you. Along the way we'll laugh a little, remember a few things from our past and I hope some of the aromas from my kitchen make their way to heaven and make my grandma smile. This is going to be fun and I'm looking forward to sharing it all with you!
