Hello good cooks, I have been making whoopie pies for years but still have a problem with the outsides being sticky. Today I made banana whoopie pies and while they were very good the outside stuck to everyone’s fingers. I suppose we could eat them with a fork but that just doesn’t seem right. Anyone have a hint I could try or can you tell me how to get around that? My husband says he doesn’t mind but I do. Thanks.

Mini Cheesecake Recipes
Here are two more favorite mini cheesecake recipes. The second is nice this time of year, as you do not have to turn on the oven.
Robbie IN

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes

3/4 cup crushed chocolate-covered graham crackers
11 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips , melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup peanut butter

Line miniature muffin pans with 12 Foil or paper cups. Place about 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker crumbs in each cup. Set aside. In small mixer bowl beat cream cheese till smooth. Add sugar and vanilla, and beat until fluffy. Beat in milk and eggs just till blended. Divide cream cheese

mixture in half. Gradually stir half of the cheese mixture into melted chocolate till well blended. Gradually stir remaining cheese mixture into the peanut butter till blended.

Place 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture in each muffin cup, and spread evenly. Spread 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture, and spread evenly.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or till mixture is set. Cool cheesecakes on rack. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Creamy No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecakes

1/2 cup pure dark (semi-sweet) chocolate chips
1 (8-ounce) package of light cream cheese
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup powdered sugar
about 45 vanilla wafer cookies
chocolate sprinkles for decoration

Makes 12 to 15 desserts. Recipe can be cut in half.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.

In a medium bowl, whip the cream cheese until soft. Spoon several spoons full into the melted chocolate chips and stir. If the mixture is not smooth, reheat it the microwave and stir.

Add the chocolate mixture to the cream cheese mixture and whip to blend. Add the 1/3 cup powdered sugar and blend. Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the vanilla and 1/4 cup powdered sugar and continue beating until medium stiff peaks form.

Add a little less than half of the whipped cream to the chocolate filling and fold together until combined. Set the remaining whipped cream in the refrigerator. Place paper cupcake holders in a muffin tin. Place two cookies in the bottom of each cup. Place a large spoonful of chocolate filling in each cup on top of the cookies. Place a third cookie on top of the chocolate filling and press down slightly. Top with whipped cream. Decorate with chocolate sprinkles.

Refrigerate for a least an hour before serving.

Baker’s note: If you add too much cream cheese to the melted chocolate, the chocolate may solidify and you’ll have solid chocolate flecks in the mixture. Simply reheat the chocolate mixture until it is above the melting point and whip smooth. Then add the smooth mixture to the rest of the cream cheese.

Tonight, 07/09/13, I served a
taco salad and Raspberry Sour Cream Vanilla Pie submitted by Judy in Alaska. It’s the most satisfying meal I’ve eaten since my valve/bypass surgery almost two years ago. I substituted Cool Whip for whipped cream. Thank you, Judy, for such a fabulous dessert!

Dear Nancy and Nancy Fans,
I want to say how much I love this newsletter. I very seldom share a recipe. I was never taught to cook but with the help of everyone here I have learned to make some awesome dishes. I don't have much to share with others in the way of recipes here but I share the food items I have made with others. I feel so proud when someone compliments me on something I have made. I can only do so with the recipes shared by the very generous people here. On what Nancy calls slow days I enjoy reading recipes that have been shared in the past. Thank you so much for all of your hard work in putting the newsletter together Nancy and thank you to all who share recipes. You have been blessings in my life and I appreciate each of you so very much.

Baking Plantain Bananas

Preheat Oven to 375 F.

1 ripe (black) Plantain per large serving

Use plantains that are either yellow with black spots or completely black for baking. Rinse and dry the plantain peel. Cut off both ends of the plantain. Make a slit lengthwise in the peel. Do not remove the peel for baking. Place the plantains in the baking dish with the slit facing up. Bake about 40 minutes or until tender. Serve the fruit in the peel or remove the peel and serve whole on a plate. Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle brown sugar over it.

Drizzle butter and brown sugar over the plantains before baking. Sprinkle with different toppings of your choice such as chopped nuts, cinnamon, or crushed pineapple.

Make a banana split using the baked plantain by adding it to ice cream, and adding additional toppings.

Jody in Spring, Texas, I sent in a
thank you for the cod recipe but I didn't see it in the newsletter. The recipe sounds very similar to the recipe I referred to, and Judy in Alaska said she tried it and it was very good. So when the meat dept at the grocery has it on sale again, I'll give it a try. Thanks for responding to my request.
Doris, S. Indiana
