It became a favorite of Amish cooks because the ingredients were always available and the pie kept well. That meant it could be made a day or two before the funeral supper and freed hands for other tasks. It is purposely very sweet to allow mourners to forget, if only for a moment, the pain of their grief.  The sugar can be reduced by in half. (more…)

Oh, this is sooo good!!  What a perfect side dish, especially this time of year when cucumbers are freshly picked!  It’s very easy to make but tastes delicious.

2 medium size cucumbers

1 medium onion      

2T vinegar    

sour cream     

1 t. of salt

dash of pepper

Peel and thinly slice the cucumber and onion.  Add the salt and let it stand for a few minutes. Pat the cucumbers with a paper towel to take out all moisture possible. Place cucumbers and onions in a serving dish, add the vinegar and combine well. Add enough sour cream to equal half the cucumber mixture.  Chill for a few hours or overnight.

One of the things I love most about living in Dutch Country is the scrumptious, mouth-watering Shoo-Fly Pie the Amish and Mennonites so frequently bake.  The pie melts in your mouth with just the right blend of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.  If you want to treat your family to a delightful dessert, try this recipe.  They will love it!
