Yummy Desserts!

Did you come to your Visiting Teaching Interview at Linn's? If you did you were able to have a taste of her yummy Almond Tart. We have the recipe for you!

Almond Tart
1/2 t to 1 t almond extract
1 cup less 1 T flour
1 cup less 1 T sugar
1 cup melted butter
2 eggs
1 T chopped or sliced almonds

Mix first 5 ingredients together and pour in greased round pie pan or tart pan. Sprinkle with almonds and sugar.
Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes 1 tart (regular size pie pan)

Here is the recipe for the jello dessert that Nikki Waller made for the New Member BBQ:

3/4 c butter, crushed
3/4 c broken up pretzels
3T sugar
Mix and press into a 9/13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cool.

8 oz of softened cream cheese
8 oz of softened whip cream
1 cup sugar
Mix well and spread over the pretzel layer. Be sure to completely cover the crust so that the next layer does not seep into the crust.

1 pkg Strawberry Jello
1 1/2 c boiling water
1 pkg frozen strawberries-do not drain
Mix Jello with water and dissolve completely. Add strawberries. Let cool to room temperature. Pour over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate for a couple of hours prior to serving.
