Last night Janice and I split everyone into 2 groups. We had 14 ladies in all. Janice showed everyone how to make and can homemade dill pickles, and I demonstrated how to make your own homemade household cleaners. We all learned a lot and had so much fun!
For a sweet little snack, I made some homemade peachy
oatmeal squares and some applesauce cake. Everyone loved them, so I thought I would post one of the recipes for you.
Peachy Oatmeal Squares
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. almond extract
3/4 cup peach preserves, (or any other kind you like)
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Combine all crumb mixture ingredients in a large bowl. Mix till crumbly. Reserve 3/4 cup of the mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture into bottom of a greased 9" x 9" baking pan.
Spread preserves to within 1/2 inch of edge. Cover with remaining crumb mix. Sprinkle top with coconut if desired.
Bake for 22-25 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
Don't they look delicious? I can't wait for you to try them. They're great in the evening with a hot cup of tea. I'll be enjoying one later this evening while my husband watch's his ball game.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
