Be Sweet. Visit Mrs. Wheat’s Treats Today!

9 Apr

Mrs. Wheat’s Treats has been around since the late 1980s. This is no overnight success story. It’s never been easy. But it’s a family recipe and a family business. Always has been. They have survived through good times and bad and now they need your support. A combination of road construction, theft, and the sluggish, post BP spill economy has caused Julie Wheat to tighten the proverbial belt. She makes a mighty fine New Orleans-style praline and deserves our loyal support.

The company was founded by Marguerite Busch Wheat. She was a whiz in the kitchen who made hundreds of pralines each year for her closest friends and beloved family members. Her praline recipe was a treasured heirloom passed down through 4 generations of the Wheat family. She was said to be quite particular about the pecans used in her recipe. Marguerite gathered pecans from her own family trees and was known to crack and shell each nut by hand. Talk about your TLC!

The original Mrs. Wheat passed away in 1987, but her family was determined to keep this most Southern of cooking traditions alive. Mrs. Wheat’s Treats retail location on South Florida Street first opened its doors two years later in 1989. Fast forward more than two decades later and the Wheat family is still at it. They continue to incorporate top of the line sugar, fresh butter and cream, pure vanilla, and meaty hand picked pecan halves. Each batch of pralines is hand dropped and hand wrapped. No mechanized, mass production here, folks.  

Mrs. Wheat’s also offers delicious Cheese Straws & homemade candies

They may be a little out of your way, but we urge you to go the extra mile to purchase these legendary Dixie delights. Mrs. Wheat’s has always gone that extra mile for you.

We’re Nuts for Mamie’s Cheese Wafers

20 Sep

Baked some of these babies up earlier today. Really, really good.

It’s the nutty little pecan chunks that make these wafers special.

The product comes in a frozen tube – much like cookie dough. Cut off just what you need (slice ’em about 1/8″ thick) and save the rest for later. Can’t beat that right out of the oven freshness. And don’t worry about them sticking to the cookie sheet. The wafers are made with at least 35% cheese and slide right off like a much tastier version on an air hockey puck.

I hope to tour the facility in the not too distant future. Stay tuned!

Susan Thompson and Barkley Shreve began producing Mamie’s Famous Cheese Wafers in Mobile, Alabama in November, 2003. These two good friends are thrilled to share this old family recipe for cheese wafers with you! Busy cooks will appreciate the convenience of these frozen slice-and-bake hors d’oeuvres, which are baked at home to guarantee a delicious homemade taste and aroma. Keep several rolls in the freezer for surprise guests, holiday gatherings, hostess gifts, football parties or any occasion when you want to serve a home-baked treat. We hope you enjoy eating your cheese wafers as much as we enjoyed making them!
