Nothing smells fresher than having your cloths dry from a country breeze


On what was another quiet day in Lebanon's Amish settlement. Every time that I'm in this community and taking pictures i always see something different going on, so it never gets boring to me. It would be nice if someone would set-up a web cam and just point it out side in this very beautiful part of Lebanon county, But then again i might be out of a job!. Richard from Amish Stories.

Reverse Whoopie Pies




1 egg

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

2 1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup milk

2 tsp. vanilla

Filling (recipe follows)





Heat oven to 350 F. Grease two large cookie sheets and set aside. In a large bowl with mixer at medium speed beat egg and vegetable oil. Gradually beat in sugar and continue beating until pale yellow in color. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a measuring cup combine milk and vanilla. Add flour and milk mixtures alternately to eggs and sugar, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. These will spread a lot, so make 6 cakes per sheet at a time. Bake about 8 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched with finger. Remove to wire racks to cool. When cool, use filling and two cakes to make sandwiches. Makes 15.



Filling:


3/4 cup butter or margarine

2 cups confectioners' sugar

1 7 1/2-oz. jar Marshmallow Fluff

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

In a medium bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and remaining ingredients until light and fluffy.
