Dusty Currant Bars

Dusty Currant Bars

This is a modified recipe from Mama's 1936 recipe book she gave me when I married in 1958. This is a must at our house for holiday baking and any other day they can "beg" you into baking.

I have named these "Dusty Currant Bars" and it goes like this.

1/2 CUP MELTED BUTTER



2 CUPS SUGAR

4 EGGS SLIGHTLY BEATEN; MIX ALL TOGETHER.

ADD SLOWLY THE DRY INGREDIENTS AS A MIXTURE;

2 CUPS FLOUR

1/2 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER

1/8 TEASPOON SALT

Batter will be very thick. Add by hand 2 cups currants and 2 cups chopped walnuts (or pecans).

Grease a 9x12 loaf pan, line with waxed paper and press dough into pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Top will appear shiny and golden brown.

Remove from oven, wait 10-15 minutes, flip onto waxed paper and cut into fingers/bars. Let cool. Place one cup powdered sugar into Ziploc bag, place 2 or 3 bars at a time and shake, remove and repeat. Keep cookies in an airtight container or they will become rock hard.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
