Main Street Manor's Cranberry Cornbread Scones
2 c all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all dry ingredients in medium bowl and stir until mixed. Add butter to dry mixture and blend until coarse crumbs form. (I use a Cuisinart rather than elbow grease?) Add milk and pulse or mix until sticky dough develops. Then gently stir cranberries into the dough.
Place dough onto a floured surface and knead gently about 10 times then pat into a circle that is 1/2 inch thick.
Cut scones into circles with a biscuit cutter and place on cookie sheet. (Makes 10 scones) Bake for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with fresh fruit preserves or butter.

Main Street Manor's Pecan Pie Brownies
Line an 8 inch square baking dish with foil and coat with cooking spray. Melt chocolate & butter together. Cool for a few minutes. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs & vanilla in a medium bowl. Whisk in chocolate mixture until no streaks of flour remain. Scrape batter into baking dish and top with pecans. Bake in middle of oven for 22-27 minutes at 350 degrees. While brownies are cooking, make the topping.
Pecan Pie Topping1/3 cup dark brown sugar
4 Tbl unsalted butter
2 Tbl corn syrup
Bring ingredients to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until barely warm, about 10 minutes. Pour mixture over COOLED brownies and refrigerate until topping firms, about 40 minutes. Remove from pan and slice into squares. Makes 16.
These hold great in the refrigerator for about a week.
Main Street Manor's Rustic Apple Cake
Note: You can also make this cake in a 9-inch square cake pan or a 9 inch springform pan; just reduce the cooking time by 5 minutes.
Garden Party Cake
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9 inch spring pan
Add yogurt. Pour batter into pan. Sprinkle berries evenly around cake. Set the peaches in the batter in a circle. Place pan on a sheet pan and bake in center of the oven for about 45 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and remove outer ring of pan. Cool cake completely.
Beat eggs and mix in oil. Sift together flour and sugar, soda and cinnamon. Turn wet ingredients into dry adding vanilla. Add in zucchini and nuts. Butter and flour a 13x9 inch baking pan. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 mins.
Cool brownies. I find it's best to ice the brownies in the pan and keep them fresh in the refrigerator.
