SOCKINGS, TREE and STARS ; You work them out. I never make two alike. Don’t write me, I already have a star. Listen girls, my star has beans, don’t overlook that.
SNOWMAN ; These cutters are handled like all the Aunt Chick’s Cutters. Before baking I use allspice berries for features and buttons. Press in. Red egg white is one egg white plus one-tablespoon water plus a few drops red coloring. Beat enough to combine not to foam. After cookie baked and cooled, paint hatband and scarf […]
SANTA or SANTY ; Santa’s nose and cheeks are like those in a storybooks. Never doubt that anyone can compete with Santa or Santy, whichever you like best. Personally I have two little grandsons standing her both cut off the same pattern, but slightly different and I love them both. That is the way with Santa […]
Jack-O-Lantern Cookies; Color dough orange, before adding flour add coloring to creamed mixture until it is the color you wish when baked. Bake carefully. Colored dough discolors easily under too much heat. Before baking place a little chocolate rosette (the kind you buy these days) you can give him a green topknot but he doesn’t need […]
BUNNY WITH EGG ; With no decorations the bunny, like a cunning little girl, needs to be dressed up for Easter. But “the boys” are fine as is. The bunny all dressed up with decorated eggs is too cunning for words. For her eye make very little powdered sugar icing color deep pink. Make little balls, […]
MANLY COWBOY ; From his bowlegs to cheeks of tan is all that one can wish. With allspice berry eyes and perhaps coconut chaps he is dressed as a cowboy should be. RECIPE: Cream 1 cup shortening, 1 cup sugar (lt.brown), ½ cup molasses, 2 eggs – Sift together 4 ½ cups flour, 1 ½ tsp […]
CLOWN ; The mouth turns up in a grin. Most clowns’ scowl, this one grins. When pressing in the design don’t press too heavily on the line of the chin. You might cut through. I have used a line of green color for the eye. He really is so cute as is but you can color […]
THE ANGEL ; The angel is a sweetie. I did not give her a face so you could each use the little face you have known. Golden brown or red hair, she is yours.
The World’s Kitchen Log – 9/20/36 By Mrs. Sam P. McBirney I have not tried this recipe but Mrs. Walsh of the Detroit News gave it to me as her prize winning recipe of the week. So I am passing it on to you. Surely everyone can not be out of step but us and […]
The World’s Kitchen Log – 9/19/36 By Mrs. Sam P. McBirney The other afternoon, I found myself with nothing pressing to do and passing the Michigan State fair in full blast. So I stopped. There was a big commotion on the left, so I made for it. By asking questions from all the farmers around […]
