The funniest cookbook since White Trash Cooking ($19.95, Ten Speed Press) is Ruby Ann’s Down Home Trailer Park Cookbook ($15.95, Citadel Press) by comic performer Ruby Ann Boxcar, which is available through bookstores or www.kensingtonbooks.com. The recipes are hilarious and some are quite good. Here’s one that whips up in minutes without lighting the stove. It was contributed, Ruby Ann reveals, by Nellie Tinkle in Lot #4. Throw it together when you need a sweet treat in a jiffy.
3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4-teaspoon almond extract
1/2-cup chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts
Grease a 9-inch-by-5-inch pan with margarine. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and almond extract until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the nuts; spread the mixture in the pan; and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.
