It’s Not Too Hot for Dessert!

I’ve told my oven: “See you in September.” 😉

Seriously Kids, who wants to swelter beside temperatures of 350 degrees and more during a summer heat wave?

Luckily, I’ve found a dessert recipe that requires no cooking at all! In fact, instead of cooking it, you freeze it. 😀

I’ve mentioned that I have a little collection of vintage cookbooks that were printed as fundraisers for various women’s groups. I found the following recipe in one of them. Don’t you just love the name of it? 😉

Thelma’s “Get Your Guy” Pie

½ cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups of crushed corn flakes
1 cup chopped nuts
½ cup shredded coconut.

Line a 9” pan with 2/3 of the above mixture.

Fill the shell with 1 quart of vanilla ice cream.

Top the ice cream with the remaining mixture.

FREEZE for several hours.

Serve with hot fudge sauce.




Special Recipe

cookingI found the following little gem in one of my vintage cookbooks. Hope you like it. The sentiment is sweet and, for a bonus, there’s a punch-line at the end! 😉

Recipe For A Good Day

Take two parts of unselfishness, and
One part of patience, and work together.
Add plenty of industry!
Lighten with good spirits and
Sweeten with kindness.
Put in smiles as thick as raisins in plum pudding,
And bake by the warmth which streams from a loving heart.
If this fails to make a good day,
The fault is not with the recipe –
But with the cook.
