October 31st will be our 12th annual celebration of historic flavors in our “Taste of the ‘Chives-Recipe Showcase” event. This year we’re looking for inspiration from archived recipes for baked goods-breads, cakes, cookies, and the like-for a fun noontime hour of food sampling!
One good source of recipes is our 2008 Taste of the ‘Chives Recipe Booklet, featuring several dozen historic recipes like this:
Rice-Flour Drop Cookies
- 2 Eggs, well beaten
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon melted fat
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 1 ½ cups rice flour
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together the ingredients in the order given, drop the batter by the spoonful on a greased baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes in a moderate oven.
