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.

The Women's Club Meets . . .

One of the Women's Clubs I belong to met tonight
. . .
At Linderhof

It's hot
It's been hot for a couple of weeks
My co-hostess, Lissa, and I decided to do
for treats

Two salsas (regular and peach/mango)
Street Corn Dip
Served with chips

Crescent Roll Churros

And because it is hot . . . 
Cool icy drinks

A minty lemony ice tea on the left
 white sangria on the right
(which can never be replicated because of using odds and ends from our wine cellar)

And during the meeting . . . 

Doogie found it all very boring
And took a short nap!

The churros 
(which co-hostess Lissa made)
are easy and start with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls


2 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
2 T. butter, melted

Heat oven to 374.    In a small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon, set aside.

Unroll dough, separate into 4 rectangles.    Press each to 6 x 4 inch rectangle, pressing perforation.

Brush tops of 2 rectangles with melted butter; sprinkle with about half of the sugar mixture.    Top each with remaining rectangles lightly.    Brush tops with melted butter.

With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle stack lengthwise into 6 strips.    Twist each strip 3 times, place on uncreased cookie sheet.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.    Brush tops with any remaining melted butter, sprinkle with remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture.
