Second Recipe

Turkey Dumpling Delight
Ingredients

5 cups water
5 cups
chicken broth

1
skinless turkey breast (4 to 5 pounds)

3 tablespoons
flour

1 1/2 cups
flour

1 cup
milk

1
small rutabaga, chopped

1 rib
celery, sliced

3
carrots, sliced

1/2 teaspoon
ground black pepper

2 tablespoons
parsley

1 tablespoon
baking powder

1/4 teaspoon
salt

4 tablespoons
trans-free margarine

Directions
1.

Heat the water and the broth in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. When the broth begins to simmer, add the turkey breast, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the turkey breast is cooked through. Remove the turkey from the broth and set it aside to cool.
2.
In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the flour with 1/2 cup of the milk. Pour the mixture into the broth. Cook, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes, or until the flour mixture dissolves. Add the rutabaga, celery, carrots, and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
3.
Remove the turkey from the bone. Chop it into small pieces and add 4 cups of chopped turkey to the soup. (Reserve the rest for another use.) Cook for 3 minutes, or until the turkey is heated through.
4.
In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining 1 1/2 cups of flour, parsley, baking powder, and salt just until combined. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk and the margarine. Mix until just blended.
5.
Drop 1/4-cup mounds of the dumpling mixture into the broth. Cover, cook for 6 minutes, then uncover and cook for another 6 minutes, or until the dumplings are dry in the center.

Recipe: Danish Pastry Apple Bars

Danish Pastry Apple Bars

Danish Pastry Apple Bars

These dessert bars have a top and bottom pastry crust. It’s like apple pie in a baking pan!
Ingredients
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1 egg yolk
3 to 4 teaspoons milk
1 cup cornflakes
8 – 10 tart cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced or 8 cups
3/4 – 1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 cup powdered sugar
Directions

1. In a large bowl combine flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a liquid measuring cup, beat egg yolk lightly. Add enough milk to make 2/3 cup liquid. Stir well to combine. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture with a fork until combined (dough will be slightly sticky). Divide mixture in half.
2. On a well-floured surface, roll half of the dough to a 17×12-inch rectangle. Fold dough crosswise into thirds. Transfer to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan and unfold dough, pressing to fit into the bottom and sides of the pan. Sprinkle with cornflakes. Top evenly with apples. In a small bowl combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture over apples. Roll remaining dough to a 15×10-inch rectangle. Fold dough crosswise into thirds. Place atop apples and unfold dough. Crimp edges or use the tines of a fork to seal. Cut slits in the top. Brush top with beaten egg white.
3. Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 50 minutes or until golden and apples are tender, covering with foil after the first 25 minutes of baking time to prevent overbrowning.
4. In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and 2 to 3 teaspoons milk to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm bars. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 32 bars.
