Subject: looking for jumbo jubilee recipe

Hello! I'm hoping you can help me find a cookie recipe. My great grandma 
(and grandma and mom) all made jumbo jubilee cookies. They are my favorite. 
they are a soft, kind of fluffy cookie with raisins and a lovely glaze. 
My mom says the glaze is a coffee glaze. I don't know. I have never made them. :) 
Unfortunately my great grandma and grandma have passed away and my mom's recipes 
have been "misplaced". O NO! 
The only jumbo jubilee recipe I have been able to find online is on recipelink. 
It has a browned butter glaze and pecans instead of raisins. I don't know if that's 
the original recipe and the coffee glaze and raisins are maybe a family adaptation. 
But I was just curious if you had any insight.  Thank you for your time.


Hello Amanda,

Perhaps they are the same as "Jubilee Jumble" cookies. I found several of those. I could not find any with coffee glaze, but I found the one below that gives raisins as an alternative ingredient.

Please, if you can, find the recipe for the banana cream pie from McKenzies 
bakery.  I have searched everywhere.  I love the cream topping and can not 
duplicate it.  I am from New Orleans, but live in Arkansas.
Help if you can.



Hi Vickie,

Sorry, no luck. That recipe doesn't appear to be available.

I'm not sure exactly what the cookies were called. The recipe had you mix up 
a peanut butter dough and form into balls, then mix up a chocolate cookie dough 
and wrap it around the peanut butter ball. They were baked on the cookie sheet 
as balls. When you baked them, they flattened and the cookie cracked around the 
side. My mom had the recipe from a magazine from the 90s, but she no longer has it.

Thanks for your help.
