   A last minute substitute gave a new twist to an old
   Amish recipe for raisin cookies. The cupboard was bare
   so leftover pineapple was substituted for the raisins.
   Everyone preferred the pineapple version. (Editor's
   Note: We called these Pineapple Muffins Cookies,
   because they came out big and soft.)
  
    Preheat oven to 350.
  
    In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening, sugar and
   egg. When light and fluffy, stir in crushed pineapple
   with juice.
  
    Sift flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg together and
   stir into batter. When the mixture is well blended,
   stir in nuts.
  
    Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on greased baking
   sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire

Toffee Chocolate Nut Candy

40 saltines (salt side UP)
1 C. (2 sticks) butter (I don't know about margarine)
1 C. brown sugar
2 C. (approx.) chocolate chips
1/2 C. chopped nuts

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Lay the crackers salt side up (or use unsalted) in a 15" x 12" pan (cookie sheet/jelly roll pan) lined with foil.  Make necessary adjustments for size.  Boil butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes.  Pour over crackers and bake 5 minutes.  Remove from oven carefully, it is soupy and hot.  The crackers will probably be floating, so adjust them into a single layer.  Put the chocolate chips on top, and spread when melted.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Cool.  You can break it into pieces when cooled.

Note: Cooking times and quantities are also important in this
recipe.  Don't try to double of halve it - it doesn't work (voice of
experience).  (Tastes like well-known name brand candy bar)
