Chocolate Treats- Baker's Chocolate Quick Fix

Today I was digging in some of my out of the way cookbook boxes and I found more Hershey and Baker's cookbooks plus some odd ones. How many chocolate cookbooks do I need 6 or 8? I don't think so. These recipes are from a little book titled Chocolate Quick Fix- Recipes You Can Make In 15 Minutes Or Less published in 1985. It has a lot of very tasty sounding recipes. Here is a sampling:
Cornflake Candy
16 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
5 cups cornflakes
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped
Melt milk chocolate in double boiler over low heat. In separate bowl, mix cornflakes and nuts together. Pour melted chocolate over cornflake mixture and stir to coat all ingredients. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the refrigerator to chill and harden. Makes about 48 pieces.
Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes
1 package (8-ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
4 ounces coffee-flavor yogurt (do they still make this?)
Line 24 mini-muffin tins with paper liners. Beat cream cheese with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg. Beat in chocolate. Stir in yogurt. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture into each liner. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until set, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on wire rack. Refrigerate overnight.
Easy Chocolate Strudel
6 sheets fillo pastry
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces chopped walnuts
1 cup crushed cinnamon graham crackers
Brush one sheet fillo with melted butter; layer with remaining 5 sheets, brushing each with butter. Sprinkle chocolate, walnuts, and crackers over fillo, leaving a 2-inch margin on all sides. Fold in two short ends; roll pastry, beginning with long edge. Brush roll with butter. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Score top of pastry into slices with sharp knife. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven until crips and golden, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

Chocolate Fudge Pie- Borden's Eagle Brand

This recipe is from a 1956 Borden's Eagle Brand booklet. It has 70 "Magic Recipes", the puddings, custards, pies, and candies, but it also has quite a few cookie recipes. I love this retro photo, the cherries with stems are great.

Magic Chocolate Pie
1 baked 8-inch pastry pie shell, cooled
1 1/3 cups (15 oz. can) Eagle Brand
2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate
1/3 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup hot water

Chocolate Squares or Cookies- Baker's Favorite Chocolate Recipes

Baker's Favorite Chocolate Recipes is an interesting 1955 cookbook. It is unusual in that it opens from the top instead of the left side. It has over 200 recipes using unsweetened chocolate, German sweet chocolate, cocoa and what it refers to as "the lively newcomer semi-sweet chocolate chips. I am going to quote what it says about chocolates food value, they do a great job of making it sound like a health food. "Chocolate is a real food in itself- not just a food accessory. It is highly concentrated, small in bulk, but has remarkably high food value. Because of this, armies from the days of the Revolution through to our present-day armed forces have carried chocolate in their rations. Chocolate is a nourishing food, containing fats, carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, and sometimes added vitamins. In addition, it is high in energy value. For this reason, many people find that some form of chocolate taken between meals helps give the "lift" they need to carry on the day's activities." It goes on to later say "chocolate has an important place in menu planning too." I am convinced I'll pack some in my lunch tomorrow.

This is a versatile recipe:
Chocolate Squares or Cookies
1 1/2 cup sifted flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate
4 tablespoon butter or other shortening
1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnut meats, optional or
2/3 cup chopped dates or chopped raisins and 2/3 cup chopped nut meats
Sift flour once, measure, add baking powder and salt, and sift together three times. Melt chocolate and shortening over hot water; cool to lukewarm. Add sugar and mix well. Add egg, and beat thoroughly. Add flour, alternately with milk, stirring only to blend. Add vanilla. Mix in any optional ingredients.
For squares, spread in two greased 9x9x2-inch pans and bake in moderate 375 degree 12 minutes, or until done. Let cool in pan, when almost cool, cut in squares. Remove from pan. Makes 50 squares.
For cookies, drop from teaspoon on ungreased baking sheet, Bake in moderate 375 degree oven 9 minutes or until done. Cool slightly; remove from pan. Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Old Fashioned Apple Brown Betty- World Scope Encyclopedia

This recipe is from a cookbook that was part of The World Scope Encyclopedia published in 1949. The recipe states " This is an old, old recipe which has been used for years by thrifty housewives who had extra bread crumbs on hand." So now it is an old, old, old, recipe.

Apple Spice Cake- The Golden Fluffo Cookbook

This vintage recipe is from Creative Cooking Made Easy- The Golden Fluffo Cookbook. The book is copyright 1956 and Golden Fluffo was a golden-yellow shortening. I suppose you could use the butter flavored Crisco if they still make that. This recipe is frugal also because it only calls for 1/2 cup of nuts. A lot of apple cake recipes call for more nuts.

1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt

Caramel Apple Pudding- TV Guide Kraft Ad

This is another recipe from the Kraft pull out in a 1984 TV Guide. Now that fall is almost here it is time to think about apple recipes. Caramel just seems made to go with apples.

Spaghetti Meatloaf- McCall's Practically Cookless Cookbook

This cookbook is part of the McCall's Cookbook Collection. There where around 19 cookbooks and they came with a storage case and index. Apparently some additions were also3 ring binder punched and must have came with a binder. They are copyrighted 1965. This particular book is a 1981 edition so they were in print for some time. It contains a lot of recipes using canned, frozen and other convenience foods.. This particular recipe sounds very interesting to me and I plan on trying it. I am always looking for interesting meat loaf recipes and this fills the bill.

Brunch Recipes- Time For A Party

This vintage party planning book was published in 1957. It has plans and recipes for twenty three different parties. Holiday parties, birthdays, teen parties, showers, brunches etc. The Coffee brunch has some interesting recipes:
Sausage Stroganoff

2 pounds bulk sausage

2 cups milk
1/8 pound butter or margarine
2 large onions sliced, then chopped
1 can mushrooms
2 teaspoons soy sauce

Rub large skillet with garlic and heat. Brown the sausage well. Pour off the grease as it accumulates. Dredge the sausage with the flour. Add milk and simmer until slightly thickened. Set aside. Saute the onions and mushroom in butter. To the cream sauce mixture, add the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onions, and mushrooms. When the mixture bubbles, add the sour cream. Keep hot in chafing dish. Heap up on little biscuits or use as a dunk for Melba toast.

Mushrooms Stuffed With Toasted Crumbs and Bacon Bits
Mushrooms (Allow 2 medium one per person)
2 cups dry bread crumbs
1/8 pound butter
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/2 pound bacon
Remove stems from mushrooms. Scrub the caps with a soft brush. Turn upside down and drain thoroughly between paper towels. With scissors or sharp knife, slice bacon into 1/2 inch strips. (Slice straight across the bacon as it comes from the package.) Cook until crisp. (Pieces will separate as they cook.) Drain on paper towels. Pour off bacon grease and store. Melt butter in pan. Add bread crumbs and brown. Add bacon to bread crumbs and work them together lightly with your fingers. Spoon the mixture into the mushrooms, and press into the caps. Sprinkle the tops with Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Broil until lightly browned.

Crab Tarts A La Bernice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can crabmeat (6 oz.)
1 box piecrust mix, or your favorite recipe
Parmesan Cheese
Mix the first eight ingredients and allow to stand for several hours. Make favorite pastry recipe or use one package of prepared mix. Roll as for pie crust; cut circles with small biscuit cutter. Mix crabmeat with the seasoned mayonnaise mixture, reserving one quarter of the mayonnaise. Place 1/2 teaspoon of crabmeat mixture in the center of each pastry round. Fold over to form half-circle. Press edges together and seal securely with tines of fork. Prick top once with fork. The tarts may be frozen or stored in icebox for several hours. Just before baking, brush with remaining mayonnaise. Sprinkle with paprika or Parmesan cheese. Bake in 450 degrees for 20 minutes. If frozen, longer baking is necessary. Serve hot.

Stuffed Eggs With Curry Seasoning and Chopped Peanuts
1 dozen hard-cooked eggs
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise or boiled dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
Remove shells from eggs. Cut in half lenghtwise. Mash the yolks with the remaining ingredients. Restuff eggs.

Other foods recommended to serve at the brunch are Quick carmel-nut rolls , toasted English muffins, French fried potato balls, Creamed Chicken for tiny butter biscuits, shortbread cookies, Danish pastry. Recipes for these items were not included.
I think the crab turnovers sound quite good but 1 tablespoon of horseradish seems like too much for 1 can of crabmeat. The sausage stroganoff is an interesting variation on sausage gravy. This would be a great book for anyone interested in having vintage theme parties.

Lomi Salmon- Hawaiian and Pacific Foods

This book belonged to my Mother when I was a child. The book is copyright 1940 and this copy is a 1953 edition. I remember my Mom bought it because she was planning a tropical party. It has chapters from many cultures: Hawaiian, Samoan, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Filipino. There are descriptions of foods used, characteristic dishes, methods of serving and menus for each culture. About half of the book is information which is very interesting and the rest recipes. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in vintage Tropical/Asian cooking. This is their recipe for Lomi Salmon:

Lomi Salmon

3/4 pound salted or smoked salmon
1/2 cup onions
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
2 3/4 cups diced tomatoes (3 large tomatoes)
5 green onions (with tops)
1 teaspoon ice-cream salt
Clean and soak the salmon 3 to 4 hours in cold water. Drain, remove the bones and skin, then shred the fish into small pieces Peel and slice the tomatoes. Chop the onions fine. Combine the tomatoes and salmon; mash them with a fork. Stir in the ice water and onions, chill the mixture thoroughly, and serve it in small individual bowls.

The Hawaiians prefer using only green onions. They lomi (crush) the green onions with ice-cream salt using the fingers or wooden potato masher. When the onions are fine, add 1/4 cup water, then add the salmon and tomatoes. Add the remaining water, if desired
