Recipe Requests

Carol Holmes of Baltimore would like cookie recipes similar to those once made at Silbers Bakery. Her requests include: walnut squares with sugar on top, macademia cookies that look like little pies and butterscotch candy cookies.

* Roslyn Margolin would like Hutzler's recipe for cinnamon cake and the recipe for the strawberry icing that went on their layer cakes.

J. Johnson would like a recipe for Lemon Chiffon Pie. She says her husband refuses to eat the frozen kind.

* Sandy Anderson of Baltimore would like a recipe for a rich pound cake.

Barbara Sparks, of Glen Burnie, wants a recipe for old-fashioned gingerbread cookies. "I've tried so many recipes and they all seem to puff too much or lose that rich, dark gingery taste once baked."
