    6 egg yolks
    1/3 cup white sugar
    2-1/2 cups heavy cream
    1 TBS. vanilla extract
    3 TBS. dark brown sugar



    Preheat the oven to 250ƒ. In a medium bowl with mixer set at medium speed, beat the egg yolks and white sugar. Set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a boil. Remove from heat immediately and add to the egg-sugar mixture, continuing to beat. Add the vanilla and continue to beat until the mixture is completely cool.

    Pour the cooled mixture into six 4-ounce custard cups. Line the sides of a 3-inch high baking pan with parchment paper, then place the cups in the pan. Add water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the cups. (The paper stabilizes the water and prevents the cups from shaking.)

    Bake for 50 minutes. Remove the cups from the pan, allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled.Sprinkle 1/2 TBS. dark brown sugar over the top of each cup. Place the cups on a sheet pan and set under the broiler until the sugar melts, darkens and forms a crust. This is the brulee process. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Want to try something very good and easy to do? Buy Frozen Bread Rolls dough, (small dough balls already made up) at your local grocer. Take out enough for at least two per person, then let little dough balls thaw until you can squeeze them down into smooth, flat little disks. Use about 1/2 inch or so Crisco oil (my choice, heat oil till tiny pinch of dough bubbles kind of like a piece of fish would, drop flat disks of dough into oil and cook until golden brown, turn and finish cooking other side. Use caution when handling, very hot! Drain on paper towels.
    Very good served with beans or any other meal!
    Also very, very good with the following...mix one to two cups powdered sugar with enough milk (preferably) or water, and maple extract (to taste) to form a stiff mixture, spread on Dough Gobs (what we always called them!) when cool enough to handle and enjoy! WARNING! Can cause Belly Swelling if too many are consumed over a period of a few weeks!
    Also, dough gobs may be shaken in a bag of granulated sugar or goodies of your choice, immediately after frying to coat them!
    P.S. May add peanut butter to maple flavored topping if desired! Again, please observe Warning above!!!

    2 cups self-rising flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder {heaping}
    1/2 cup solid shortening
    1/4 cup sugar
    milk
    Mix dry ingredient and cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Add milk gradually and stir with a fork until a dough is formed. Knead 3 or 4 times and roll out very thin, about 1/8 inch or so.
    Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and sugar, really cover it up! Next, start at one edge and start rolling. When rolled up, slice into crosswise cinnamon rolls about 1/2 inch thick. Put in a greased pan or cookie sheet and bake in a hot oven at 400 degrees. Good eating!

    1 Duncan Hines Supreme Yellow cake mix
    2 cans pineapple in light or heavy syrup
    2 cups light brown sugar
    1 big jar marachino cherries
    1 stick of real butter

    Melt butter in large skillet, preferably cast iron, and add sugar. Stir until bubbly and melted. Arrange pineapple slices and cherries in an attractive pattern. Follow direction on cake mix, being careful not to beat too much air into the batter. Hand mix is better. Pour batter into pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or so. Check doneness by inserting a kitchen knife into center. Comes out clean, its done. Remove from oven and resist tempation to upend and eat hot. Put aside and let cool. When cool, run kitchen knife around edge to loosen. Put BIG plate on top and upend. Admire and show off for 5 minutes. Slice and eat. Keep fishing!

    Here is a fool-proof fried pie recipe that, once mastered, you will never go back to store pies again!

    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 cup SOLID Crisco shortening
    ice water

    Mix flour salt and baking powder. Blend shortening with pastry blender until mixture is well mixed and a crumbly texture. Add ice water sparringly until dough comes together. Use a fork for best results. Divide dough in half. HANDLE THE DOUGH AS LITTLE AS YOU CAN! Pinch off dough slightly larger than a golf ball and roll on table into a circle, using plenty of flour to keep from sticking. Put two tablespoons of filling on dough and fold over. Cut excess dough off with edge of fork and crimp edges with the fork. Use spatula to transfer to HOT grease. Fry one side and carefully turn and fry the other. Use an additional spoon when turning to avoid splashing hot grease. Put on plate to cool.

    Filling.....Cook dried appricot or peaches until done...cool and add sugar Also, canned filling, such as Comstock brand is very good.
