12 Recipes of Christmas

13 Dec

For this holiday season I have been digging deep into my collection of cookbooks to bring you unique recipes. Something special for the more discerning, the more adventurous of epicurians. No chocolate chip cookies and gingerbread men! No ham or turkey! Recipes your guests will remember (or wish they could forget)

Our first recipe is….


Gumdrop Bread

3 c sifted flour

3/4 c. sugar

3 1/2 t. baking power

1 t. salt

1 egg, slightly beaten

2 T. salad oil

1 1/2 c milk

1 cup of gumdrops, cut up

1/2 c nuts, chopped

Sift dry ingredients. Combine eggs, milk and oil. Add dry ingredients and mix. Fold in gumdrops and nuts. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake in 350 degree over for 1 hour or until done.
