Jewel Fruit Tart- 1973 McCall’s Recipe

In 1973 McCall’s recipe card collection would add yet another oddity to what they called, “The Contemporary Cooking” section called Jewel Fruit Tart. Looking at the photograph, I feel slightly nauseated; it’s hideous. Please elongate the word Hideous when you read it because that is how I am actually saying it.

I had a chance to review the ingredient list which consists of plenty of canned fruits such as peaches, mandarin oranges, and pear halves. Followed up by preserves, cream cheese, a few frozen berries and finally a fresh fruit, strawberries–then ruined by even more jelly. Good grief this sounds like a health food lovers nightmare.

Let me know if you’ve ever made or had this because I always love hearing from Y’all. I am actually thinking this might not be a bad idea if modified using uncanned fruit, What do you think? Let me know. Continue reading

Butterscotch Pecan Pie

Butterscotch Pecan Pie is one of the great Southern contenders that makes you jump for joy if you are a pecan and butterscotch kinda guy or gal. However, you really would not know that by the picture featured on this 1973  recipe card by The McCall Publishing Co.

The butterscotch and pecan flavor is subtle, adding an interesting twist to the Butterscotch Pecan Pie, without overwhelming your taste buds with this Southern-inspired pie that is guaranteed to possibly also cause a few cavities if eaten too often.

Vintage Apple Pie Recipe 1922 compared to my Apple Pie recipe

In the fall there is nothing as good as a warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream rested on top of the slice of pie. Traditional Dutch apple pie comes in two varieties, a crumb appelkruimeltaart and a lattice appeltaart  style pie. Both recipes are very  distinct in that they will usually call cinnamon and lemon juice to be added and may differ in texture, however, not taste. Dutch apple pies may include ingredients such as cream butter, raisins and almond paste, as well as ingredients such as apples and sugar, which they have in common with other recipes.

Below I have shared my apple pie recipe for you in comparison to the vintage version of Igleheart’s Cake Secrets, 1922, Apple Filling for Pie and crust recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy both recipes for years to come. If you try either please come back and let me know what you thought of them.
