    This is a very good, easy recipe for au gratin potatoes. When I make it I delete the butter and cornflakes, and use lo-fat sour cream. It’s what I’m making for Ed’s Christmas party tonight, one of his favorites. The name reflects the fact that these potatoes are frequently served at after-funeral family dinners ‘catered’ by the church ladies.

    (serves 16)

    1 24-ounce bag frozen shredded (not diced!) hash brown potatoes, thawed

    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    2 cups sour cream
    1 cup grated cheddar
    one-half cup plus 2 T. melted butter
    one-third cup chopped onion
    2 cups crushed cornflakes
    salt to taste

    Combine 2 T. melted butter and cornflakes. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Blend well. Pour potato mixture in a large oblong pan. Sprinkle crushed cornflake mixture on top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

    I promised to post a favorite cookie recipe. Here it is.


    1/2 c soft shortening
    1 c brown sugar (packed)
    1/2 c white sugar
    2 3/4 c flour
    1 c chopped walnuts
    2 eggs
    1 c canned milk (undiluted)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp soda
    1 tsp salt

    Mix shortening, sugar, and eggs thoroughly. Stir in milk and vanilla. Sift flour, salt and soda & stir in. Blend in nuts. Chill 1 hour. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Drop by Tbl 2 inches apart on greased sheet. Bake about 10 minutes. While warm frost with Burnt Butter Glaze. Dip frosted cookie tops in shredded coconut. Makes 4 dozen.


    2 Tbs butter
    2 c sifted powdered sugar
    1/4 c canned milk (undiluted)

    Heat butter until golden brown. Add sugar and milk and beat until smooth.

    The cookies are nothing special until you add the glaze.
