Fig Bars

Fig BarsSo if you like Fig Newtons you’ll love these! Are these a knock off? Nope! But the texture and flavor are similar. These are just better. I’m not just saying … I’m guaranteeing! My little fig tree only gave up enough for this recipe, and a few extra for a wine accompaniment. Use a cup … to a cup and a half for those who want a fully packed fig bar. Just amazing!

Very proud of this makeover. It’s a makeover for two reasons. I’ve used leftover cake crumbs, and secondly, this cookie is a cousin to a Hermit bar. This all came about while reminiscing with a friend about an old town bakery long gone. Their Fruit Bar, no confirmation by the owner, was whipped up with leftover cake crumbs. I’d never heard of such a thing … replacing flour with cake crumbs. I guess this is a practice in some bakeries. I say when the outcome is like this one, DO IT. Thank you Debbie!

Why is it when I have a great recipe to show off I can’t seem to get a great picture!

Apple Muffins

Apple Muffins

The house smells of apple muffins, and I remember what my daughter says at a time like this. Mom, this is so cozy. Especially cozy with Grandmother Rose’s vintage crystal, and Mother’s muffin recipe baking up. Things were a lot simpler in the 50’s … for our family anyway … Foods and recipes too. If you’re looking for a muffin with complex flavors and textures this is not the recipe. A simple taste with just a bit of cinnamon and apple tartness sums it up.
