Macaroon Bavarian recipe with maraschino cherries

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


Another vintage recipe idea for St. Valentine's Day. Its red maraschino cherries make it tasty and festive when love is in the air. You might have noticed that many brands are now preparing their maraschino cherries in corn syrup, so if like me, you prefer real sugar, be sure to read the ingredients before purchasing. You might have to find an organic brand, or even go to a health food store.

Happy Thursday!

Bavarian is made by folding stiffly whipped cream into whipped granulated gelatin which has been sweetened or flavored, or into sweetened flavored powdered gelatin.
