~~Terrific Tuesday With A Recipe~~


Cranberry Cherry Pie Recipe

(Cherry pie is one of my favorites.  This looks like a good recipe using a canned cherry pie filling and tart cranberries.  My mouth is watering already!)

Cranberry Cherry Pie


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 2 cups cranberries
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • Milk and additional sugar


  • In a large bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in pie filling and cranberries. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim to 1 in. beyond edge of plate. Pour filling into crust.
  • Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Cut slits in pastry or cut out stars with a star-shaped cookie cutter. Place pastry over filling; trim, seal and flute edges. Arrange star cutouts on pastry. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 375°for 55-60 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.


Sweet Potato Muffins Recipe

(I'm going to try this recipe but substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato)

Sweet Potato Muffins


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups cold mashed sweet potatoes (without added butter or milk)
  • 1 cup canola oil

  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons 2% milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk the egg, sweet potatoes and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm muffins. Yield: 2 dozen.


Creole Beef Casserole Recipe

(I love hashbrown casserole.  This is a way to make more of a filling meal than a side dish.  I can't wait to try this!)

Creole Beef Casserole


  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (30 ounces) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  • In a large bowl, combine the soup, sour cream, onion and pepper. Stir in potatoes and cheese; transfer to a greased 3-qt. baking dish.
  • In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar and seasonings; spread over potatoes. Combine cornflakes and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 8 servings.
