Bristalone, 0ne of my Mother's recipes

Chocolate chip Bristalone Bristalone, one of my Mother's recipes.  She usually made it with Anise flavoring.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Crisco
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs Your favorite flavoring (Anise, lemon,also could add some walnuts and make a maple walnut or vanilla and chocolate chips)

Directions:
Cream Crisco and sugar, add eggs and beat, alternate flour, baking powder salt with milk and flavoring. Spoon onto greased pizza pan making a ring around the outside and have nothing in the middle.

Bake at 350 for 30 min or until toothpick comes out clean.


Make a glaze with confectioners sugar, boiling water and a cap full of whatever
flavoring is in cake. Spread the glaze after the cake cools a little. Delicious enjoy.

 

My Granddaughter made this one in the photo and did not keep the middle open like my mom always did but it was her first try and it tastes good.

 

 

Have a great day

Hi Al,

Did you have several gallons of milk handy to wash down all that "cookie pie"?

I am printing this one out so the wife can give it a try.

Thanks for sharing a family recipe.

Have a good day in Ormond.

Hi Al.    It looks like your granddaughter did a great job with the Bristalone!  Nice to keep the tradition alive. How'd it taste?

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog and to comment this morning Clint, Josh and Cal, I appreciate your comments.

 

Clint, it was good and yes you need to have milk OR coffee or tea with this. 

Josh, Thanks, make it your favorite flavor.  If she is making it for the holidays she can add food color to the glaze and maybe sprinkle some colored things on top.

Cal, yes she did a good job and it tasted good.  I would have used more chocolate chips though.

It must be good if you add your favorite flavor right Roy?

That looks absolutely scrumptious. I might have to give it a shot, although I'll leave off the nuts.

Al-ah the bristalone! I haven't seen one of those since I was a kid. My grandmother was from around Naples and when all the grandkids (me included) where around she made one of those monsters:)

Now, that is something I have never heard of.  I'll ask Chief Cook to make one though because it sounds delicious and I'll post a photo of hers, too.  Thanks, Al.

Thanks for dropping in to comment Russel, Marco and Ron.  There are 2 good reasons to try a Bristalone.  One is that it is so easy even I can do it.  The second is that even though it is traditionally made with Anise, it can be made with whatever flavor you like.

Hi Al,

the Britlecone looks very yummolicious. I like that you encouraged others to be creative with their flavorings. Enjoy the weekend.

Posted by Cathy Criado, Making Real Estate Profitable (Criado Realty ) over 7 years ago

That's the only problem with these Cathy, trying to decide on which flavor to make.  My wife came up with the solution a few years ago.  She divided and made 2 mini ones, each a different flavor.

Hi! I google searched bristalones, a recipe that has been in my family for years and I came across your recipe. I have never seen it anywhere else online and you are actually the only search result for 'bristalones'. I hope you don't mind me asking, as I am doing some research for a class I'm taking... Where is you're his recipe from and where does your family come from? Thanks in advance for your help Al!
