Two summers ago, I re-read the Little House series with equal delight. I was impressed by how many references I found to tea!
Last week, I browsed through the children's cookbook section of my local library and stumbled upon a small cookbook called The Laura Ingalls Wilder Country Cookbook. Oh, imagine my delight! In this book are recipes collected by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
I tried one of those recipes today, aptly named the Raisin Tea Ring. It was yummy! I enjoyed sharing it with a friend, during a leisurely afternoon of sitting on the front porch and chatting over this bread and a cup (or 2 or 3) of tea.
The ring turned out to be huge! The recipe calls for it to cool on a rack, but there was no way I was getting it onto a rack or plate or anything without breaking it, so here's the photo on the baking stone. Next time, I will make two smaller rings.
This cookbook was a very fun one for me to read. It's one that I think I will check out repeatedly from the library. (I'm trying to cut down on the number of books I purchase.) If you're a Little House fan, I think you'll delight in this book, too.
