RC, it is!. Folks from all around here have begged my mama into making them one. Mama would do it some times but not always cause its a lot of work. Mama always baked one layer at a time so they all would turn out as perfect as possible. Lol, if she made one for a church function it would be gone within 5 minutes of being put on the desert table. Lol, usually with a piece or 2 missing cause someone found it in the kitchen and had to have a piece. She used to make one especially for me for my birthday too, my birthday is on Dec 21. Lol, it was a way to con her I to making 2

How wonderful is it to get together with family and friends and spend real quality time together over delicious, home-made goodies?

Here's one that's quick and super-simple:
Whenever I am making fresh cranberry sauce, I always set aside a 1/2 cup of the fresh berries so that I can whip up a batch of Cranberry HoneyButter.
So yummy on scones or fresh, hot biscuits, at breakfast ... or anytime.

Cranberry HoneyButter

Blend together the following ingredients:
1/2 pound of butter (softened)
1/2 cup of fresh, washed cranberries
1/4 cup of honey (I use raw honey and you can add more or less, depending on your sweet tooth)
The fresh zest from one small orange
Of course, you can hand chop the berries and then blend everything by hand, but I just put all 4 ingredients straight into my food processor and blend until the mixture appears smooth and evenly mixed.

It keeps well in the fridge for ... oh gosh, I'm not sure how long ...
it's never actually lasted for more than about 2-3 days at our house.

Here's a really good hot Christmas Apple Cider that's so simple to make.

One gallon apple cider
1/4 Red Hots candies

Heat part of the cider with Red Hots until the dissolve. Add the rest of the cider and heat. It's that simple.

(Red Hots are those little roundish red candies sometimes used to decorate cookies. You can usually find the in small bags in the candy section. I know that Wal-mart carries them.)

This is a big hit with my family well except for one and on him I omit the bananas and add apples.

Kiwi Fruit Salad
6 kiwi peeled and cut diced
4 bananas diced
1 large can of chunk pineapple ( drained )
4 T. Brown Sugar
2 limes
1 t. Vanilla

Peel and dice kiwi, bananas. Drain pineapple mix pineapple with kiwi and bananas, set aside. Mix the brown sugar and juice of 2 limes and the zest of one lime and the vanilla, mix with the fruit. Refrigerate, it is better if it can for a few hours.

Here is a sweet treat that my nephews really enjoy, so I make it for them at Christmas.

Yummy Caramel Bars

35 Caramels. (in clear cellophane)
1/3 cup canned milk

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup margarine

1 - 6 oz. package chocolate chips
1/2 cups nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Combine milk & caramels in double boiler. Stir to blend. Remove from heat
& set aside.

Heat oven to 350F. Butter a 11" x 7" pan.

Soft flour, baking soda & salt. Add brown sugar & oats. Cut in margarine.
Blend until mixture is like coarse crumbs.
Put 1/2 of this mixture in pan & press lightly.
Bake 10 - 15 minutes, or until light brown.
Remove from oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips & nuts. Spread caramel mix
over all.
Sprinkle with other 1/2 of oats mixture. Return to oven for 15 - 20 minutes.
Cool 30 - 45 minutes.
Put in fridge to set. 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Then cut.

This is so wonderful. Cannot wait to make it. Feeling like it right now.

Vivey, that sounds soooo good. On my list of gotta try!

Here is one of my all time, any time favorites!

Caramel Apple Pie

Ingredients:
1 (9inch) Pie Crust
10 Caramel Candies (each cut into 4 pieces)
1/3 cup flour
3 cups sliced or chopped apples (peeled & cored) I use Jonathon or Rome apples.
2/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie spice) adjust to personal taste
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Mix:
In medium bowl: Coat apple slices in lemon juice.
In a separate bowl: combine caramel pieces, flour, and cinnamon.
Add: Apple mix to the flour mix and gently mix.
Add: caramel topping and evenly mix everything together.
Pour: the mixture into pie crust. Add top crust. Use a knife or fork to punch in a few vent holes, and bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is nicely browned.

**Alternate Crumb / Streusel Crust:

cup butter (softened but not liquefied)
cup flour
cup firmly packed brown sugar
teaspoon cinnamon or apple pie spice
Combine all together, and use a fork to smash and blend the soft butter into the other ingredients. You should have an evenly textured crumble like mix that you can spread over the top of your pie.


**Another version of this pie leaves the top crust off, topping with 2/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, and baking as is.

**Note: There is no sugar in this recipe. This is correct, as the caramel sweetens the apples, and both are a bit sweet while being excellent for cooking and baking. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add cup brown or white sugar, and increase flour to cup.

Cindy, have to tell you. I tried your Caramel Apple Pie yesterday and it is wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it very much. Thank-You.
Actually, I think I am going to indulge in a piece for breakfast.
Always thought they got the order for the different courses, wrong. Dessert would work as a first course for me any day.

Here is a nice treat to make.

ALMOND ROCA

1 lb. Butter
2 cups Brown sugar
4oz. Chocolate chips
12oz. Slivered almonds

Cook butter and brown sugar, stirring constantly to 300F (Hard Crack on
candy thermometer).
Remove from heat and add almonds, stir well. Pour out onto a lightly greased
Jelly roll pan (12"x8"). Put chocolate chips on top and let melt for a few minutes, then spread evenly over top.
I sprinkle with finely chopped almonds after this.
Let coll completely and then break into pieces. Store in fridge.

**if you do not have a candy thermometer, you can drop a tiny bit in a glass
of cold water. If it forms a hard ball, then it is ready.
It does take awhile 8-10mins.

Enjoy,
RC

Making my Dad's recipe for his "Nuts & Bolts" this weekend. I love it.
I put in whatever we like, as I used to pick through and eat the ingredients I
preferred most.
I will post later if anyone would like the recipe?
