(Makes about four dozen candies)
1 Lb. Melted Margarine,
2 1/2 Lbs. Smooth Peanut Butter,
3 Lbs. Powdered Sugar,
36 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate,or Chocolate Chips
1 Square Cooking Paraffin
The Insides: Mix the margarine, peanut butter, and powdered sugar together in a large mixing bowl. It will be thick and heavy. Roll the mixture into small balls about 3/4-inch to an inch across. Melt the chocolate (chocolate chips melt the best) in a double boiler with one section of paraffin.
Dip the balls in the chocolate mixture three-quarters of the way so that they look like buckeyes.
Lay them out on wax paper and let them set long enough to harden before eating.

1/2 Cup Bacon Bits or Ham Cubes,
2 Cups Prepared Croutons,

(Makes one nine-inch pie)
1 Unbaked Pie Shell,
2 Cups Granulated Sugar,
1 Tbsp. Flour,
1/2 Tsp. Cornstarch,
1 Tbsp. Corn Meal,
1/4 Cup Milk,
1/4 Cup Butter or Margarine, Softened,
1/2 Cup Real Lemon Juice,
1/4 Cup Grated Lemon Peel
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place an unbaked pie shell in a deep-dish pie pan. Mix the sugar, flour, cornstarch, and cornmeal, then add the eggs, milk, butter or margarine, lemon juice, and lemon peel. Beat until smooth. Pour the mixture ito a pie shell and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Top with orange slices for an added solar touch. (Note: A second crust can be used to cover the pie before baking. Pinch it to the edges of the bottom of the crust to make a tight seal. Make several cuts in the top crust to allow heat to escape.)
