Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Bible Study and Treats

Normally, our Bible Study group meets at church
but this week Linderhof's doors were open
to the group.

Since there were six, the dining room table was perfect

Coffee, treats and flowers

I used my Old Paris china
From around 1860 or so
I love the really big cups and the deep deep saucers.

It was bought here in my little town on the prairie
For not much money
I felt as if I had just received a gift!

The treats?

Crescent Cinnamon Rolls
An easy treat
And one that is perfect for anyone who is yeast challenged.
Warm and fresh from the oven

Today the pot was a coffeepot
I'm not sure if it is a "coffee" pot or "tea" pot
But it whatever pot I want it to be.
Since the cups are so big, I'm assuming it is for coffee -- not tea!

And for a touch of color
Garden marigolds in a German vase
that echoes the orange of the flowers.

Not a cloth but a runner --
a wonderful old runner that is outstanding
And one of my favorite pieces of linen.

The ladies are almost here!
Time for coffee, treats and bible study.


1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, unrolled and separated

5 T. butter, softened
1/4 c. white sugar
2 1/2 t. cinnamon

2 T. butter, melted
1/4 c. plus 2 T. powdered sugar
1/2 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375

Place the unrolled and separated crescent rolls on an ungreased rimmed cookie sheet.    

In small bowl, mix together the butter, sugar and cinnamon

Evenly spread the cinnamon butter over the crescent rolls and roll up tightly.
Place tip side down on the cookie sheet
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

For the glaze:   In a small bowl, mix together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.   You can either place in a zip lock and snip a tiny corner off and drizzle the glaze over the cinnamon rolls or you can just spread a spoonful on each roll.

It is Thursday and I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish and Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

How pretty, Martha! I make a similar recipe with the crescent rolls. Aren't they so good? Your runner is gorgeous. I made your Texas White Sheet Cake to serve for Kathleen's all white challenge.

There's nothing better than a pretty tea table, and good friends together studying the Bible.

What a wonderful day.

Cathy said...

Love simple to make that is so good. Your china was a great find and made a lovely table for ladies. What a great book to study.

I always find the Old Paris piece absolutely enchanting. I agree...the pot is whatever you want it to be. I'll bet that it was in the 1800's, too. Thanks for the recipe and for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

This is for me! I am "yeast challenged" :)

What a lovely table setting....our Bible study meets in homes, too. I can't wait for autumn (we disbanded over summer months).

Pat said...

Lovely tablescape for your Bible Study Group, dear friend!!!
I love the Paris china set!!!
Thanks for the tip for "yeast challenged"! Perhaps I'll give "tube" rolls a try, once again!

So glad you used the lovely Old Paris china set! I love these sets for their beauty and shape. Your treat is wonderful with coffee and then your study time! Have a great week!


Debbie said...

Your china is beautiful, and I love the entire setting. It's lovely AND gracious. Our Bible study group meets at the end of each unit to celebrate like that, and I love it so much. I know your group did too!
