Hee hee! It’s been a getting warmer out and we’ve been thinking about pasture picnics! One of my Grandma’s favorite summertime picnic food for family gatherings was a good old fashioned Lemon Sponge Pie! We love the lemons and it was the perfect dessert after munching a lot at the picnic table! Light and with the succulence of lemons, it was delicious. We hope you’ll give it a try!
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
Juice of 2 lemons
1 cup of milk
1 Tablespoons of flour.
Cream the butter, sugar, egg yolks and flour and then add the juice of 2 lemons. Lastly fold in egg whites and a pinch of salt.
Bake in your own pie crust choice in a very slow oven until done.
One of my favorite after school treats (yes goats go to school!) was a plate of delicious brownies! I’d gulp them down super fast and as you may have guessed they did not last long! Mom would have to make a double batch to have enough for all the kids!
This is a very easy recipe and takes only minutes to make!
