A Delight Full Twist to an Old Family Favorite

A Delight Full Twist to an Old Family Favorite

  • This article is sponsored by Nestle Toll House

This time of year most of us are baking everything from cookies to brownies to special cakes. While a lot of  people are searching online for ideas this year, we decided to look through some old family recipes for our inspiration. We decided to go with an old favorite….with a twist. Recently we found a new product that we think adds a fun new dimension to some of our favorite family recipes.

We are fortunate to have saved these old recipes from both sides of our family. Many of them are still on index cards we keep in an old oak box. What a treasure to have. This collection of our grandmother’s favorite recipes are often hand written or typed, full of stains and smudges from decades of use. What is a typewriter anyway??? The meals or desserts prepared from these recipes continue to be favorites for our kids and grandchildren.
