Oh, those sweet things called baked goods!

Table Talk




Another great recipe that I have tried in the sweet treats is Scones. I have given this out before, but would like to encourage you to try it again


2 cups of flour

1 stick of butter that you have grated to mix into flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup of sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon rind or 1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 cup milk

2 beaten eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1-1/2 cups of dried fruits such as cranberries, raisins, etc., that has been soaked in water for about 20 minutes and drained


Beat all liquids together plus the sour cream

Mix all the dry ingredients. Blend the butter into the dry ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients and the drained fruit.

Knead on a floured surface until all is mixed well. Shape into a round circle on a sheet pan. Cut the circle of dough into 8 sections still leaving the round shape. Baste dough with milk and sprinkle a small amount of sugar on top.

Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 25 minutes.


Here is a recipe I got from my husband's niece who lives in Pennsylvania.

Sweet Dumplings


2 cups of water

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp vanilla

This is the syrup mixture. Heat until hot.

Dumpling ingredients:

2-1/4 cups Bisquick

2/3 cup milk


Mix and drop by tablespoon into hot syrup. Leave lid on pan for 10 minutes and then take lid off for 10 minutes.

I do hope you try some of these ideas.

Speaking of ideas, Teresa Smith told me a great recipe for a cleaning agent. Heat 4 ounces of vinegar until warm. Add 2 ounces of Dawn dish soap to vinegar and place in spray bottle. This is a great household cleaner.

Until we get to sit and talk again, have a safe week.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
