Red Velvet Cake

(Joyce says this is special...both are handwritten recipes) Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Make a paste of cocoa and vinegar. Add this to butter mixture. Sift soda, salt, and flour together. Add to mixture then add buttermilk, vanilla and coloring. Line bottom of 3 cake pans with wax paper. Bake at 350 degrees R. for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not remove cake from pan until cool. Do not substitute oleo; use pure butter.


Cook milk and flour until thick. Set aside to cool. Mix sugar and butter and beat with electric beater. When mixture is completely cool, add the creamed butter and sugar mixture. Keep beating until fluffy like whipped cream. Then add chopped nuts, vanilla and coconut. Spread on layers and sides of cake.

Caramel Pecan Topped Pumpkin Pie

Combine the 3/4 cup brown sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Stir in the eggs, evaporated milk and maple flavoring. Pour into the pastry shell, bake in hot oven (400 degrees F.) for 40 to 45 minutes or until filling is set. Meanwhile, in a small pan, mix the 1/3 cup brown sugar and 3 tbs. whipping cream. Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 min. Spread the hot caramel mixture on hot baked pie. Put pecans on top and return to oven for 5 minutes.
