Here’s some I got out of the Nov 1, 1995 issue of Woman’s Day, “Fabulous
Food Gifts.” I’ve got many more if you like what’s there so far. Hope
this is what you’re looking for. Ho ho ho!

1. Line a 9 inch square pain with foil, letting foil extend above pan on 2

2. Stir milk and butter in medium-size saucepan over low heat until butter
melts. Measure 1/3 cup into a small bowl, add vanilla chips and stir until
melted. Stir in cherries. Add chocolate chips to mixture in saucepan;
stir until melted, returning to heat if necessary.

3. Using half the vanilla mixture, drop small teaspoonfuls into prepared
pan, leaving spaces between each. Sprinkle with half the coconut. Spread
chocolate mixture evenly on top, then spoon on remaining vanilla mixture.
Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Refrigerate at least 8 hours until firm
enough to cut.

4. Lift foil by ends to cutting board. Cut fudge in 1-inch squares. Store
airtight with waxed paper between layers.

Butterscotch Crunch variation: Proceed through Steps 1 and 2, substituting
2/3 cup butterscotch chips for the vanilla chips and 1 cup thin chow-mein
noodles for the dried cherries. Continue through Step 3, substituting
butterscotch mixture for vanilla mixture. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup coarsely
chopped salted mixed nuts (in place of the coconut). Spread with chocolate
mixture; sprinkle with another 1/4 cup coarsely chopped salted mixed nuts.
Proceed through Step 4.

My recipes are not exactly very well organized. I knew I had the recipe
you were looking for, but it took a little sleuthing until I could figure
out which one of my looseleaf notebooks, photo albums with recipes in it,
or cookbooks it was in. Eureka! I found it. It is in one of my oldest
looseleafs, so I would imagine I cut the recipe out of a Land O’ Lakes
Butter ad about 20 years ago! That’s funny, since I recently posted a fish
recipe that also came from a Land O’ Lakes ad. Hope you enjoy this!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In 3 qt. bowl, combine crust ingredients. Mix
at medium speed, scraping sides of bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until well
mixed and particles are fine. Pat firmly into ungreased 13x9x2 pan.

Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust. Prepare caramel layer (see
below). Pour evenly over pecans and crust. Bake near center of 350 degree
oven for 18-22 minutes or until entire caramel layer is bubbly and crust is
light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chips.
Allow chips to melt slightly (2-3 minutes). Slightly swirl chips as they
melt; leave some whole for a marbled effect. Do not spread chips. Cool
completely; cut into 3-4 dozen bars.

Caramel Layer: In heavy 1 qt. saucepan combine brown sugar and butter.
Cook over med. heat, stirring constantly, until entire surface of mixture
begins to boil. Boil 1/2 to 1 minute, stirring constantly.

German Christmas Cookies

Ingrients & Directions

1 pk (1-pound) superfine sugar
1 Vanilla bean
4 c Sifted all purpose flour
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Baking soda
2 c (1/2 pound) very finely
-chopped assorted raw nuts *
2 Egg whites
1 lb Unsalted butter; room
1 c Granulated or superfine
1 ts Pure vanilla extract

My grandmother made these cookies throughout my childhood, and I always
loved them. (She, in turn, got the recipe from a friend of her’s, Anna
Schmidt, *many* years ago in Ridgewood, Queens.) I have never seen them in
any cookbook.

* If preferred, purchase a 1 pound package of raw assorted nuts with their
shells on, shell them by hand, and chop them … That is how my grandmother
made them, as did the lady from whom she got the recipe.
At least two weeks before you are going to bake these, prepare vanilla
sugar. (This can also be done months in advance and stored at room
temperature until ready to use.) Pour superfine sugar into a jar or other
airtight container. Bury a vanilla bean inside and cover tightly. Set aside
for at least two weeks (or longer, if not yet ready to make the cookies).

Mix cookies. When ready to bake cookies, sift together flour, salt, and
baking soda. Using a fork, gently stir in nuts. Set aside. In small bowl of
electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Set aside. Put
into large bowl of electric mixer. Without washing beaters, cream until
light and fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat until soft and creamy. Fold
in beaten egg whites. Using wooden spoon, gently stir in reserved dry
ingredients. Blend thoroughly. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1

Bake cookies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using palms of your hands, pat
dough 1/4-inch thick onto counter top. Cut with canape or TINY bridge
cutters. Arrange on cookie sheets. (They will not spread.) Bake until
golden (approximately 12 minutes).

Coat cookies. Remove warm cookies from cookie sheets. Roll in reserved
vanilla sugar until generously coated. Set aside to cool.

N. B. If anything, these cookies improve with age, and will remain fresh
indefinitely if stored in an airtight container. The vanilla sugar will
also keep indefinitely … Simply continue to add more sugar upon using up
the supply.)
