Cherry – Berry Nut Mix Cookies
1-cup butter, softened
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract
2-½ cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups Germack Cherry-Berry Nut Mix
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment. Separate the nuts from the dried fruit in the Germack
Cherry-Berry Nut Mix. Chop the nuts and recombine with the dried fruit.
Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon, then beat in the egg yolk and
vanilla extract. Sift together the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture. Add the Cherry-Berry Nut Mix,
and stir until thoroughly combined. Scoop up tablespoons of the dough and place in mounds on the
prepared cookie sheets spaced well apart.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on the cookie sheets for 5-10 minutes, then
using a metal spatula, carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 30 cookies.
Cherry Macadamia Brownies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 generous cup Germack dried cherries
1/2 cup Germack macadamia nuts, crushed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Butter and flour a 9-inch square cake pan.
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl.
Melt the chocolate
with the butter in a double boiler
in a bowl set over a pan of hot water (you can
also use a microwave instead).
Remove from heat, add the brown and granulated sugars, and leave to dissolve slightly; then stir to combine.
Add the eggs, one by one, beating after each
addition. The mixture should be very glossy.
Gently fold in the flour.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan to form an even layer.
Top with dried cherries and crushed macadamia nuts.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until just set in the middle. A wooden skewer inserted into the center
should come out with just a few moist crumbs on it. Don’t over bake. Leave to cool in the pan for
30 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.
2 Cups sliced apple
1/2 Cup Germack raisins
1/2 Cup diced celery
1/2 Cup chopped Germack walnuts
Toss ingredients. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
Makes 4 servings. Try sprinkling a few pepitas,
blanched peanuts or pine nuts on top. For dressing,
we recommend raspberry vinaigrette or honey Dijon.
Cherry - Berry Nutty Oatmeal
Chop 1/4 cup of Cherry Berry Nut Mix and add during the last few minutes of cooking your favorite oatmeal.
Top with 1 teaspoon of honey for a sweet touch. This recipe was submitted by David Austin - he recommends
using steel cut oatmeal, which is heartier with a nutty flavor compared to regular flat oats.

Pine Nut Pesto
Combine pine nuts with fresh garlic, basil, parmesan, and olive oil in a blender to make some delicious
pesto in a flash. Pine nuts can be eaten raw but are typically roasted for use in cooking. To roast, put our
pine nuts on a cookie sheet and roast them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, watching them closely.
Create Your Own Snack Mix
Combine your favorite Germack treats to create a "one-of-a-kind" snack. The whole family
can choose an item to add to the combination. A fun way for the whole family to "cook" together.
Ever try to make your own chocolate covered treats? It's easy! Simply melt chocolate in the microwave
or in a double boiler until smooth but not bubbly. Then use a toothpick to hold the item, dip lightly once
and lay to rest and cool on waxed paper or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Try dipping: Germack apricots or fruit slices.
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Make small clusters of peanuts, pistachios (shelled), almonds,
pecans, etc. and drizzle chocolate (melted by directions above) on top enough to cover. Let set and cool
on the sheet then enjoy! Wrap in individual wrappers and tie with a festive string or bow.
