Still zero weather trees covered with frost this morning like fairy land
Made a cherry pie and jelly tarts and a layer cake*
Done all the chores- and regular Saturday work-
Mother has been fine all day-
500 lbs of coal delivered
No mail today^-
|Jelly or jam tarts*|
*Another busy baking day for Irene! (Image & recipe below from Mumsnet.com)
3/4 c butter
1/8 c caster (superfine) sugar
1/5 c jam
7/8 c plain flour
1 pinch salt
- To make pastry, sift flour, salt and sugar into a bowl, rub to crumbs, stir in egg and make a ball - chill for half an hour.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and grease tartlet tins. Roll our pastry and stamp out circles, press into the tins and spoon a heaped tsp of jam into each.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
^So the coal truck can deliver, but that mail carrier didn't make it out. Interesting.
