Freeky F riday

Like my granddaughter's HALLo-ween!!!  In a week.  Trick or treat candy is on sale everywhere.  I tried one year to give out an alternative ( like more healthy) alternative and gave out Halloween pencils.   I found them broken on two down the walk.  So much for healthy.  LOL

I love recipes for sweets that call for things I always have in the pantry.

Chocolate pie

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa ( not drinking cocoa)
1/4 cup flour
Pinch salt

 2-1/4 cups water

1 T butter
1 tsp vanilla

Baked pastry shell.
Whip cream

in large saucepan, sugar, cocoa, flour and salt. Gradually add water.  Stirring with a wisk.  Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute until thickened.  Remove from heavy.  Stir in butter and vanilla.  Pour into baked shell and refrigerate several hours .    Garnish with whip cream.

 Blueberry pound cake

1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
6 eggs
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp soda
1 cup sour  cream
3 cups blueberries

Makes 2 loaves

In mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar.  Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Mix in  dry ingredients and sour cream , alternatively on thirds,

Place in greased loaf pans (2) and bake at 350 for a hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool ten minutes before removing from pans.

Note:  I have not been seeing blueberries fresh lately.  There are frozen at Costco.  Many tomes, they call for more than necessary to effect a good loaf.

Recipe can be cut in half for  a single loaf, or freeze for a emergency back up for company.
I would reduce real sugar and add some fake, or use all fake.  A good way to use up sour cream that needs to be used up,

Thanks for stopping by
