Lost Recipes

I'm still sorting through old cookbooks and recipes and came across these, which I made so many years ago and am not sure how they fell off the radar, as both are very scrumptious.

The following recipe is for a very moist, dense coffee cake.  Made with graham crackers, it has a very unique and delicate flavor.  Great for morning coffee break!


1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. backing powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups craham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cupt light brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanille
1 cup butter milk
1 cup chopped walnuts

Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt; mix with graham cracker crumbs; set aside.  Cream together putter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time and then add vanilla, beating until fluffy.  Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating just to blend. Stir in walnuts and spread into greasted 9-inch square baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top springs back.  Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm with butter.

And here's a recipe shared by a coworker many years back for a treat called Ice Cream Candy Bars.

BOTTOM CRUST:  about 25 crushed oreo cookies and 1 stick melted butter ... press into bottom of 13x9 pan.

Layer #2:  1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream.  Let soften then slice and spread into pan

Layer #3:  1 can spanish peanuts

Layer #4:  Melt 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 can evaporated milk (more or less), and 3 cups powdered sugar.  Bring to boil until it thickens (similar to a white sauce consistency).  Let cool completely and spread over other layers.  FREEZE until firm.  To serve, let stand for about 1/2 hour for ease in slicing.
