#87 Wash Day Pudding

While visiting at home a few weeks ago my mom made this pudding with raisins. I hadn't had it for years but it sure tasted fantastic.
  • 2 tbsp butter, separated
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar, separated
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • handful raisins, (optional)
  • shredded apple, (optional)
1. Mix 1 tbsp of butter, ½ cup of brown sugar, flour, baking powder, and milk to make a dough. Raisins and/or a shredded apple can be added for additional flavour.
2. In a saucepan combine 1 tbsp of butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, and 2 cups of boiling water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then transfer to a casserole or baking dish.
3. Drop the dough mixture by spoonfuls into the hot mixture.
4. Bake in 350 degree oven until done - approximately ½ hour is a 6 oz casserole dish. Serve.

#86 Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

My friend C. MacBride always brought these cookies along to camping trips. I always looked forward to the moment when she would bring out and open the tupperware container to share these morsels of chocolatey oatmeal goodness. When I was pregnant I suddenly had a craving for these cookies so I called her up for the recipe. NowI share them with you!
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 2 ⅓ cups rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
1. Cream butter or margarine and brown sugar.
2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
3. Add flour, rolled oats, and baking soda and mix until a dough is formed.
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
5. Form into balls or drop by spoon fills onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
