    a friend. Garnet, derived from the word granatum, means seed, and is called so because of the gemstone's resemblance to a pomegranate seed. https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/january-birthstone-

    10. Vintage Recipes

    Email recipes@tias.com if you would like to submit a recipe.

    As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help
    people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe. If you have a vintage recipe request send it to recipes@tias.com and we might just publish it here.

    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled 1 tsp almond extract
    1 1/2 cups flour
    2 cups fresh cranberries
    1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans or almonds

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter 9 inch square baking pan. With an electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs in large bowl until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Beat in melted butter and almond extract. Add flour and stir until well blended. Stir in cranberries and nuts.

    Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until tester inserted into center comes out
    clean, about 50-60 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool.

    Dust with powdered sugar before serving

    Request from a reader for a recipe:

    Has anyone ever heard of Maryland Fried Cookies. I think they are like Flourentines using a frying pan to melt the sugar and butter. I would love to find the recipe I lost out of a magazine 20 years ago.

    TIAS.com merchants have thousands of cookbooks for sale! You can
    see them here: http://www.tias.com/books/cooking/
