      Sorry, Grampy, I neglected to thank you as well.

      Thanks!

        Green Mountain Cookies

        1lb. melted butter
        5 c sugar
        3 T cinnamon
        3 T cloves
        Mix together and cool
        add 2 eggs-1 at a time

        dissolve 2T baking soda in 1/2 cup + 2T water

        add rind of one orange
        1/4tsp lemon extract
        1/2 c molasses

        add 7 C flour
        pinch baking powder and salt

        mix well
        form into logs
        wrap and freeze-these will keep in freezer
        slice when ready to eat and bake in 350 degree oven 5 to 7 minutes.

        Nova Scotia Brown Bread

        2 C boiling water over 1 C oatmeal
        1/2 C molasses
        1 T salt
        1 T melted butter
        1 yeast cake dissolved in 1/2 C luke warm water
        1 C rolled oats
        4 1/2 C flour and a little more

        add boiling water to oats and let stand 1 hour.
        add molasses, salt and butter, then dissolved yeast and flour.
        let rise.

        beat down all the way
        turn into greased pans
        let rise again
        bake in 350 degree oven

        This bread tastes great as toast-big thick slices in the morning.
        Could also be used as a brown bread to accompany a baked bean supper.

        Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone,
        Dave and Heather M.



        DaveM, do I have to knead the dough at some point, or is punching down sufficient?

          As a chef for a catering company, I was working 60+ hours a week in November and December. I did more lurking than contributing to the forums during that time, ocassionally falling asleep in front of the monitor, so I missed this thread! I just now read all of the contributions. What a great sense of community! I'm really sorry I wasn't on top of things enough to make an addition to what seems like a wonderful project. You guys are great.

              Nice Punch for Holiday visitors who like juicey,sweet punch.

              1.75 or 2 Fifths Peach Schnapps
              1 Half gallon Peach Cranberry Fruit Drink
              1 Half Gallon Orange Juice
              1 Quart of either Pineapple or Grapefruit juice or Squirt Soda
              (you choose Pineapple for sweeter, or Grapefruit for Tarter)
              1 Fifth 80 proof Vodka

              Mix well and store in 'Frig' til needed. Float some Orange slices with marashino cherries on the slice on top of the Punch in the Punchbowl. Makes a bunch, but is storable for several parties if needed.


              Someone gave us a big bottle of Grapefruit vodka. Do you think I should make any adjustments in the recipe if I substitute that?

                I must admit I haven't tried the flavored Vodka to see how much it is 'diluted' by the citrus additions. I would suggest that you substitute it for the fruit juice and cut-back on the straight Vodka "to Taste". (or if you want to- Just substitute the grapefruit Vodka for the fruit juice and keep the 80 proof at the full amount)

                    Elise, put it in the freezer and get it colder than the gates to Anchorage and enjoy.

                    I sorta like the stuff myself
