New Lost Recipes Requests

Bean Pie
Mei is looking for "an authentic and reliable Bean Pie recipe that someone has used for years."

Caraway Cookie/Cake
Ellen is searching for "a recipe for these bakery treats. Last time we recall tasting them was in the 1950s in the Brooklyn, Queens area of New York. These “cakes” were really hard, flat cookie bars (very crunchy) that contained caraway seeds. They weren’t very sweet but were a delicious accompaniment to coffee. Can you help me find a source to buy them or a recipe to make them? I would love to surprise my family with these for the holidays this year!"

Please let me know if you have either of these recipes and post them in the comments section for this blog.

In the 1960's my mother cut out a recipe for a banana cream pie with a peanut butter/cornflake crust. It was very delicious and rich. I think she cut it from a magazine and she thinks it was from a box of corn flakes. My whole family would love to have this receipe. Does anyone have it?

I would also like to find a recipe to make these cookies. I purchased them at Ebengers and were made around the New Year.

I am looking for an old recipe my husband says was called Cherry Roll, that his mom made when he was young. He said it was off the Bisquick box back in the 50's. It was not a roll, but a cake with the consistency between cake and cheesecake and the cherries were in the batter. No icing or topping. He says it was VERY moist. I've never seen nor had it, so I'm going on his memory. Thanks.
