July Carol wanted Amish red raspberry pie recipes. I do not think anyone responded to this request. Here are two red raspberry pie recipes that have been hits when I have made them. I don't know if they would be considered Amish, or if they are in any way what you recently ate at an Amish Restaurant. I thought I would share in case either sound like they might be what you wanted.

Here are more quiche recipes. The second recipe is from the 8/29/15newsletter and was shared by Judy Montana. It is another one of her delicious recipes. For Athena DE I have made many of my quiches crustless just by eliminating the crust and adjusting the baking time slightly. Many of my family won't eat the crust and just scrape out the filling, so I decided to stop wasting the crust. Anna could use the vegetable quiche recipes that have been shared to cook meals for her son who has recently become a vegetarian.

Honey Lemon Squares Recipe

Makes 16 bars

To avoid air bubbles in the curd, stir in the cream with a spatula.

1 cup (5 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces and softened
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon honey

Lemon Curd
2 large eggs plus 7 large yolks
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup grated lemon zest plus
2/3 cup juice (4 lemons)
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
3 tablespoons heavy cream

For the crust: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Make foil sling for 8-inch square baking pan by folding 2 long sheets of aluminum foil so each is 8 inches wide. Lay sheets of foil in pan perpendicular to each other, with extra foil hanging over edges of pan. Push foil into corners and up sides of pan, smoothing foil flush to pan. Grease foil.
Using stand mixer fitted with paddle, mix flour and salt on low speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Add butter, 1 piece at a time, and mix until only pea-size pieces remain, about 1 minute. Add water and honey and continue to mix until mixture begins to clump and resembles wet sand, about 30 seconds.
Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press into even layer with bottom of dry measuring cup. Bake crust until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking.
For the lemon curd: Meanwhile, whisk eggs and yolks, honey, lemon zest and juice, and salt together in medium saucepan until smooth. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with rubber spatula, until mixture thickens slightly and registers 165 degrees, about 5 to 7 minutes. Off heat, whisk in butter until melted. Strain lemon curd through fine-mesh strainer into bowl, then gently stir in cream with rubber spatula.

Pour warm lemon curd over hot crust. Bake until filling is shiny and opaque and center jiggles slightly when shaken, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Let bars cool completely in pan, about 2 hours. Using foil overhang, lift bars from pan and transfer to cutting board. Cut into squares and serve.
