Wild Rice & Mushroom Casserole (absolutely delicious)

2/3 cup wild rice

3 cups boiling water

1/2 tsp. salt

Cook for 30 minutes... what I do 15 minutes before it's done

 the wild rice is very rich and filling...

Turn into a buttered 1 quart greased casserole.

 Sprinkle with almonds,

 cover and bake at 350 deg. for 30 min. Enjoy.

Martha's Molasses Cookies.... to die for...

3/4 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

4 tbsp. molasses

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 tsp. Baking Soda

1 tsp. Ginger 1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tsp. cloves 1/4 tsp. salt

Cream shortening, sugar, molasses and egg together.

 Add remaining ingredients and mix together

 ..you will have a soft dough. Take chunks of cookie dough..

about the size of a big marble... hehehe... roll in sugar,

 place on ungreased cookie sheet

 and bake at 350 deg. for 10 minutes.

These cookies are absolutely scrumptious...and

if you have children or grandchildren..

they'll love making them.. they're so easy.


St. John the Divine Butternut Crunch ... easy to make...

1 cup butter

1 cup white sugar

2 tbsp. water

 1 tbsp. cornsyrup

3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (your choice) 6 oz. chocolate chips

Melt the butter in a pan with heavy bottom over medium heat.

 Add sugar and heat to boiling stirring constantly.

 Still in the water, corn syrup. Cook over medium heat

 still constantly till the candy thermometer reaches 290 deg.

 Remove from heat and add nuts. Pour onto baking sheet -

 let set then sprinkle chocolate chips over hot candy.

Use a spatula to spread the chocolate.

 Place in refrigerator till cooled.

Break into pieces and serve. Makes great Christmas presents.

If the nuts are oily they will produce an oil residue

 on top of the candy..don't worry...just pour it off,

 then wait for it to solidify a bit before

adding the chocolate chips. Also..this mixture is poured

onto a cookie or cake pan ... no form to it...

 just let it flow. I usually use an 8 x 13 cake pan...

 Absolutely guaranteed to melt in your mouth...
