In the Nov 8 Brenda submitted a recipe for Mashed Potato Candy. That recipe brought back memories of my very young school years in NJ. I don’t think we used coconut then but that makes it sound even better.
Thanks for the recipe and the memories.

These are two excellent pie choices for the holidays, that will be on our menu.

No matter how many different pies we have Thanksgiving or Christmas, our family always wants a chocolate pie, as is a favorite. I always make it the day before, as keeps well.

Judy's Creamy Chocolate Pie Recipe

1 baked 9 inch pie shell
3 squares (3 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate squares
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup hot water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup whipping cream
Additional whipped cream and shaved chocolate, for garnish

In saucepan, over medium heat, melt chocolate with sweetened condensed milk and salt. Cook and stir until thickened, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add water and cook and stir until mixture thickens and is bubbly. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Cool 15 minutes and then chill thoroughly.

Stir. Beat 1 cup whipping cream till stiff and fold into cooled chocolate mixture. Pour into pie shell. Chill for 3 hours, or until set. Top with additional whipped cream and shaved chocolate.

NOTE: I'm sure frozen whipped topping (thawed) could be used in place of
the whipping cream.

Many who eat this think it's pecan pie. It so rich and luscious I always get a kick out of a person's reaction when they are told it is made with oatmeal!

Judy's Oatmeal Pie Recipe

1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup dark corn syrup
3 eggs
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

Cream together butter and sugar; add cinnamon, cloves and salt. Stir in syrup. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition until blended. Stir in oats. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 50 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.

Note: during baking, the oatmeal forms a chewy "nutty" crust op top. We like it with a little whipped cream on top of ours.

Cake Flour Recipe
Nancy, here is a recipe for cake flour that a friend of mine gave me:

In a bowl, place 1 cup plain flour and remove 2 tablespoons from it. Then add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

Sift the flour and cornstarch 4 to 5 times. That’s all there is to it! This can be used as a substitute for cake flour in your recipes.

You can make a batch up and store it in an airtight container to have on hand as you need it.

This is for Jana Lv
About cake flour if you live in the south we have White Lily plain flour that can be used as cake flour. It is a soft wheat flour the same as cake flour. I have not bought cake flour since I took a cake decorating class 43 years ago and our teacher told us about this.

She is one of the noted caterers in town and she used this, I also sold cakes for 30 years. Not sure where all this flour is sold except in the south.
Hope this helps.

In the Nov. 6 N/L, Sharon shared her recipe for Aunt Louise's Caramel Candy. Something just spoke to me to make it. I made it and wanted to tell Sharon I appreciate the recipe. It is easy, as everything is in most cook's kitchens. They are delicious candies, tasting like pralines. These will definitely be on my candy "to make" list.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 tablespoons mini semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 10- x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly-roll pan with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on high speed, beat eggs until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in granulated sugar then water and vanilla until well blended. Reduce speed to low and beat in flour mixture just until smooth. Pour onto baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle a clean kitchen towel with confectioners' sugar and invert the cake onto towel. While still hot, peel off aluminum foil and roll up cake and towel jelly-roll style starting from a narrow end. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Unroll cake and remove towel. Spread cherry pie filling over top of cake, leaving a 1-inch border, and roll it up again. Place on a serving platter, frost with whipped topping, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Cover loosely and chill at least 1 hour, or until ready to serve.
