Thanksgiving Recipes from the Family Archives

Several tweeps asked me about recipes for Thanksgiving. I've found two that usually complete the dinner table around here (when I cook) Each of these recipes have been passed down at least 2 generations. The corn pudding recipe was originally written in my great-grandmother's handwriting, and now resides in a sealed baggie.

Corn Pudding (serves 4-6)

2 cups corn (i use canned)
1 tbsp. flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. butter (melted)

Combine ingredients in ORDER. Pour into a 1 QT baking dish. Place in a larger pan of water. Bake at 350 for 30 to 45 mins. can be mixed a day ahead and bake later.

No Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar
4 tbsp. cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 c. milk
1 c. peanut butter
1 tbsp. vanilla
3 c. oatmeal
waxed paper

In a heavy saucepan, bring to a boil the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls. Let sit until cool and hardened.

I hope you enjoy!
Bon appetite.
