Baked Apple Rol-Ups

BAKED APPLE PIE ROLL-UPS ! HERE'S THE RECIPE... 10 slices white bread 1 can apple pie filling 1/3 cup melted butter 1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Granny's Cocoa Cream Pie

Granny’s Cocoa Cream Pie It’s simple and tasty. This really was a simple desert often used during the 30’s and 40’s. ½ c. cocoa ¼ cup cornstarch/or arrowroot powder (or ½ c. all purpose flour) 3 egg yolks 1 ½ c. sugar ¼ tsp. salt 2 c. milk 1 tsp. vanilla Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat. Cook until thick, beating it smooth. Cream pies take some time to thicken, so stir... and stir (10-15 min). Using a heavy bottom pan really helps. Just keep it up until it thickens. Pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Put in the fridge to chill, add whipped cream if you like :0 Or use the left over egg whites for a meringue topping!
