Grandma's Peanut Butter Fudge


  • 4 cups white sugar  
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk  
  • 1 cup butter  
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter  
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme


Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish and set aside. Butter a 3 quart saucepan.

Place buttered saucepan over medium heat, and combine sugar, evaporated milk and 1 cup butter within. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Beat vigorously until smooth. Pour quickly into prepared baking dish. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

Easter Rice Pie


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour  
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder  
  • 1/2 cup white sugar  
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt  
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into chunks  
  • 1 egg  1 teaspoon vanilla extract    
  • 1 cup water  
  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice  
  • 2 cups whole milk  
  • 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese, drained  
  • 1 cup white sugar  
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice  
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest  
  • 6 eggs  1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained


Grease two 9-inch pie plates.

Pulse flour, baking powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in a food processor several times until combined.

Place butter into the flour mixture and pulse just until butter resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in 1 egg and vanilla extract; process until dough holds together, about 30 seconds.

Place dough on a well-floured work surface, divide in half, and roll each piece into a 9-inch round crust.

Fit crusts into the prepared pie plates and freeze for 1 hour.

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until rice has absorbed the water, about 20 minutes.

Stir milk into the rice and bring to a simmer; cook until thickened, stirring often, about 10 more minutes. Set rice mixture aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Beat ricotta cheese, 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and 6 eggs together in a bowl until smooth. Stir in cooked rice mixture and crushed pineapple until thoroughly combined.

Divide the filling between the 2 cold pie crusts

Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is set and the tops are golden brown, about 90 minutes. Cool on racks.
