I'm wondering if you have the Howard Johnson's Pecan Pie Recipe?  I remember it having 
a distinctive custard-like filling. It differs from the Karo syrup style.

I would greatly appreciate getting the recipe. 

Thank you,


Hello David,

No Bake Peppermint Ritz Fruitcake

 I am looking for a recipe that my mother made in the late 1960's early 1970's as I best recall. 
 It is a no-bake fruitcake that she used a peppermint log crushed and Ritz crackers in the recipe. 
 It is my favorite but she has lost her recipe.
