Hello Ed,

I can locate several recipes for "Philadelphia ice cream", but none of them contain either buttermilk or orange liqueur. It's just a rather plain vanilla ice cream like the first recipe below. I can only find one ice cream recipe that contains buttermilk and orange liqueur. It's the one below called "spiked buttermilk ice cream."


Philadelphia  Ice  Cream

 Ingredients :
 1 qt. cream
 3/4 c. sugar
 1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla
 1/8 tsp. salt

 Preparation :
    Scald cream, add sugar and cool.  Add vanilla and salt.  Pour
 into freezer can and freeze, using 8 parts ice to 1 part salt.
 Makes about 1 1/4 quarts.

Spiked Buttermilk Ice Cream

makes about 6 1/2 cups

8-ounce package Neufchatel cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Using electric mixer, beat Neufchatel cheese and sugar in large
bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in Grand Marnier, fresh lemon
juice and vanilla extract. Add buttermilk and mix until smooth,
about 1 minute. Add whipping cream and beat until smooth, about 
30 seconds. Stir in grated orange and lemon peels. Refrigerate 
mixture 30 minutes.

Process buttermilk mixture in ice cream maker according to
manufacturer's instructions. Freeze ice cream in covered 
container.(Ice cream can be prepared up to 2 days ahead.)

  Hi, I'm looking for a recipe for a donut that my grandmother made 
  called liberty bonds.  All I remember about them is that they were 
  made with lard and shaped liked golf balls and deep fried.  Then 
  my grandmother would give all the kids a brown paper bag with 
  powered sugar in it and we would all get to shake the donuts in 
  powered sugar. The donut was heavy inside and crisp on the outside.  
  If you could give me a recipe for something close to this I would 
  greatly appreciate it.  
  Thanks,  Kathy 

Hi Kathy,

I couldn't find any recipe with the name "liberty bonds", nor could I think of an alternate name to search for. However, they sound a lot like "donut holes", only a little bigger, perhaps. See the recipe below. It doesn't call for lard, but hardly any recipes do anymore. If you must use lard use it instead of the oil in both the donut holes and for frying them.


  Donut Holes

  1 egg -- lightly beaten
  1/2 cup milk
  2/3 cup sugar
  1 tablespoon oil
  2 cups flour
  1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  2 teaspoons baking powder
  1/3 teaspoon salt
  Oil -- for frying
  Powdered sugar

  Combine the egg, milk, sugar, and oil in a 
  large bowl.  Sift the flour, cream of tartar, 
  baking powder, and salt into the egg mixture.
  Stir until well mixed.  Heat oil in a saucepan.  
  Carefully drop batter by small spoonfuls into 
  the oil.  Remove with a slotted spoon when 
  browned on all sides.  Drain on a paper towel.  
  Roll donut holes in powdered sugar while still

Hello Carlos,

Well there are about a dozen different "Hobart Companies", but since you are studying culinary arts, I am going to guess that you mean the one that manufactures kitchen equipment. They started up in 1897, and their first product was a pepper mill.

Their website is here:
