MAPLE SYRUP AND CHOC-CHIP COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM

This recipe was published 20 years ago in the Women’s Weekly, the lazy way to make it now would just be to use Oreo biscuits, although the making it with unbaked dough would give it a different texture.  Your choice!

COLD LEMON PUDDINGS

Individual lemon puddings that you can make for dessert before anyone arrives seem like a great idea to me.  As I’ve said before, I like to spend as little time as I can in the kitchen once the visitors have arrived, so these seem perfect – although I would add a dollop of thick cream for serving.

APPLE BRANDY CHEESECAKE

This recipe sent me off googling ‘apple brandy’ as I thought sprinkling that instead of straight brandy on to the fruit might give it an extra kick.  I had Calvados in mind, but I discover there’s other apple flavoured liqueurs on the market these days, so maybe it would be worth trying one of those instead.

CHOCOLATE CREAMED RICE

This recipe was published in the Woman’s Day in 1991 and uses a microwave to cook the rice.  I think it would work even better if you cooked it in a rice cooker.  I’d make sure I washed the rice before using it and I’d substitute cream for some of the water & milk.  I think then you’d have a lovely creamy, chocolaty mix.
