3 c. flour 1 lb. candied pineapple
1 lb. golden raisins 6 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Cream butter, sugar and egg yolks. Mix together flour, fruits, nuts and lemon extract. Add to creamed mixture. Fold in egg whites to above mixture.
Prepare 2 loaf pans (Bread size) by greasing them heavily. Dust with flour and line with parchment paper. Pack cake mixture into pans. Cake will rise only about 1/2 inch in all. Bake in 300 degree oven for 2 hours. Keep checking so they don't get too done. They will seem soft to the touch in the middle. They will set up after they cool. Take cakes out of pans and cool on rack. Wrap in foil and refrigerate or freeze. Slices best when cold.
1 1/2 c. flour 18 Pecan Sandies
1/2 c. margarine OR 1/2 c. margarine or butter
1/2 c. chopped nuts 1/2 c. flour
Cut flour, margarine & nuts (or crushed cookies) together and pat into 9 X 13 baking dish. Bake 15 - 20 minutes in 350 degree oven. Chill before adding filling.
1 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 carton (large) Cool Whip
Beat together well and put on top of the crust.
2 small pkgs. instant chocolate pudding
2 1/2 c. milk
Beat and pour on top of cream cheese mix. Top with rest of Cool Whip. Sprinkle with chopped nuts or crushed cookies. Chill
Laurel M (Gracian's fiance) was just here and shared her recipe for Sugared Walnuts with me. It's easy, quick and delicious. I thought you might like to give it a try.
In a heavy fry pan (like a cast iron fry pan) boil together for 5 minutes: 1 Cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup water. Then:
Stir in 1/2 lb. to 1 lb. walnuts and boil until the sugar turns white.
Stir in 1 teaspoon or more of vanilla flavoring. Pour out onto wax paper, spread evenly, and let cool.
Hope you enjoy.

Good evening ladies, for all day quilting on December 11, 2010, please bring something from home that you maybe have two of or have no use for wrapped as a Christmas present. We are going to play some sort of game at quilting using these gifts. Also, please bring some canned food to donate to the food bank at the church. Bring your favorite snack to share with the group. We are going to eat and sew!!!!
Keep on smiling, Kathy
PS: Of course, like everything else we do as a guild, those quilters who want to participate in playing a game can bring a wrapped item from home, and those who don't want to don't have to.
Meeting Minutes, November 13, 2010
Members were informed of the death of Linda E’s sister. The Guild sent a card of condolence and a donation to the family. A thank you card was received from Linda. It was passed around for all members to see.
Plans for a Christmas party for the Guild were discussed. The party was planned for the second Saturday in December, which is our regular All Day Quilting day. After some discussion it was decided to have snacks ( POT LUCK) and sew on that day. This was a unanimous decision. All members were asked to bring snacks for that day.
Everyone was asked to bring their ideas for next year’s challenge quilt to the meeting in December (12/11/10). We must have the ideas by then so we can choose a challenge and get started for next year’s July 4th Quilt show.
Paula N brought a tote full of 20’s and 30’s fabric from Debbie Norcross’s legacy. Everyone was asked to take an assortment of fabrics and make a small (no larger than 40 inches square) article, such as a table topper, wall hanging, etc. These items will be included in a small quilt show at the Library on April 1, which is Debbie’s birthday. Members are asked to be sure to put a sleeve for hanging on the back of their articles.
Quilting on Thanksgiving was discussed. Not enough people would be able to come so this was dropped.
Paula said that she had been approached by a member of the School Board. They are going somewhere for a meeting and wanted to know if the Guild could whip up something for them to take to this meeting. No one was interested.
