Squash Custard Pie

Squash Custard Pie

Squash Custard Pie

Meet the Cook: Acorn squash has been a favorite of mine since I was little and my mother baked it with sugar and cinnamon. This particular pie was something I improvised. We love pumpkin pie...but had fresh squash in excess. So I came up with this new variation! It's good to take to potlucks, to pie or cake walks at school - or to serve as a different dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We (my husband and I have a 10-year-old son) moved out to the country to get away from the crowds. Our home's on 15 acres. We're grazing a few cattle this year, and deer, wild pigs and an occasional skunk visit at night. -Mary Kelly, Hopland, California

You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea. My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!

Italian Cenci Cookies

My mother brought this special family recipe from Europe a century ago, Cenci can be "dressed up" for any holiday—at Easter, I sprinkle yellow, pink and lavender jelly beans over them, and for Christmas, red and green candy sprinkles give the cenci a festive look. Even without the garnish, they always disappear fast!

Each fall here in Alaska, an abundant crop of wild cranberries is ripe for cooking," details Anchorage resident Gladys Wilson. "This cake, a favorite in my family, makes good use of the harvest."
