2 tablespoons rum
1 9-inch baked pie shell
whipped cream
grated sweet chocolate

In a small bowl soak the gelatin in the cold water for about 5 minutes.  In a separate bowl beat the egg yolks.  Add 1/4 cup of sugar and the cream.  In a saucepan heat the egg yolk mixture and cook until smooth and slightly thickened.  Add the gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved.  Chill until the mixture just begins to set.

Toss mixture with a fork to moisten, adding more water a few drops at a time until the dough comes together.
Gently gather dough particles together into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling.

Shoofly Pie

2 c flour
1 c sugar
1/4 c lard
1/2 tsp salt
1 c molasses
1 c hot water
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg

 Oven 350 degrees 30 min
Prepare 2 unbaked pie shell bottoms for 9" pies
Mix molasses, hot water, soda and egg; beat well.
Make crumbs with flour, sugar, salt, and lard. Reserve 1 cup of crumbs (for topping), and put the rest of crumbs in liquid. Put in pie shells, put reserved crumbs on top and bake

Southern Cobbler

1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cut milk
1 stick of butter
1 cup fruit

melt butter in a casserole dish. in another bowl, mix flour, sugar, milk together and dump in the dish on the butter.  dump the fruit in on top of the mixture and DON'T, DON'T, DON'T  stir it up.
bake at 400 until a knife blade comes out clean.

2 minute fudge

1 box of confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 c. of cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. milk
1 Tbsp. of vanilla extract
1/2 c. butter
1 c. chopped nuts

In 1 1/2 quart microwavable casserole dish, stir sugar, cocoa, salt, milk, and vanilla together until partially blended (mixture is too stiff to thoroughly blend in all dry ingredients).
Put butter over top in center of dish.  Microwave at high for 2 minutes, or until milk feels warm on bottom of dish.  Stir vigorously until smooth.  If all butter has not melted in cooking, it will as mixture is stirred.  Blend in nuts; pour into wax paper lined 8x4x3 inch dish (sometimes I just pour it up in anything available and line it with wax paper).  Chill 1 hour in refrigerator or 20 to 30 minutes in freezer, cut into squares.  Makes about 36 squares

Pink Lemonade Pie

1 chocolate cookie crust (you can buy these already made)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 container frozen whipped topping thawed
1 small can frozen pink lemonade concentrate  (if your store doesn’t carry the small cans anymore, get a big one and halve it)
Red food coloring
Whipped cream for topping, thin lemon slices for garnish if you like.
Whip the milk and lemonade mix with the mixer until they are thoroughly mixed, mix in about 3 or 4 drops of food coloring to make it pinker.  Gently fold in the whipped topping.  Mound into the crust and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.  Before serving, garnish with the whipped cream and lemon slices.  I use the whipped cream in a can so it makes a pretty garnish.  You can whip your own and use a pastry tip and accomplish the same results, plus it will just taste better!
Note:  If you substitute frozen limeade, green food color and lime slices, this makes a great Lime Icebox Pie!
If you use a purchased crust, the plastic liner makes a dandy cover for this pie to take to a potluck.

Perfect Peanutbutter Fudge

1 2/3 cups of milk
4 cups of sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
2/3 cup Peanut Butter
1tspn Vanilla
1tspn salt
In a heavy pot, heat butter, sugar and milk to a soft boil. Roughly about 23 minutes depending on your stove, stirring constantly.(you can test with a drop of the mixture in ice cold water it should form a soft ball) Turn off heat, stir in peanut butter vanilla and salt mix well and pour out onto a greased cookie sheet. Allow to cool, cut into 2 inch squares and enjoy.
