Dear Miss Hathaway: I am send- ing one of my favorite recipes on how to make lemon pie. I hope you will like it. I like the recipes I get from your column very much. Mix five tablespoons of flour, one cup of sugar and add three cups of boiling water. Stir constantly over a slow fire. After four minutes stir in one-half tablespoon of butter. Remove from the fire, add two un- beaten egg yolks and stir well. Add the grated rind and strained juice of one lemon, also a little salt. Beat the two egg whites until stiff, fold carefully into the hot mixture and turn into a pastry shell. The stiffly beaten egg whites are folded into the pie instead of used on top in the form meringue. The pie is delicious. MISS F. R., Detroit.

I use a bread-mixer and a good bread flour, and try to conduct the whole process in a warm atmosphere, say around 80 degrees. Into the bread-mixer put two cups of sweet milk which have been scalded, two tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of salt, one heaping tablespoon of butter or lard, two cups of water, and one cake of compressed yeast, dissolved in part of the water, being careful to have the mixture warm and not hot enough to scald the yeast. Then add twelve cups of flour and stir until a smooth ball is form- ed, cover and place where it will be warm over night. In the morning, uncover and turn the rod a few time to let the gas escape from the dough, cover and let rise again. After breakfast, take the dough out onto the molding board, cut into four equal parts, form into loaves and put into well but- tered pans, put in a moderately warm place to rise until double the original size. Bake in a moderate oven about forty-five minutes. Many interesting variations may be made by taking a lump of the light dough, kneading butter into it, and cutting or shaping into rolls. Or, roll thin and spread with a mixture of butter, sugar, cinnamon, and pecans, roll up and cut into slices, which should be placed on a buttered pan and covered. Keep in a warm place until very light. Then bake in a moderate oven until delicately brown. Mrs. D. C. Chipman. --------------------------------------------------------------------- (yellow0006) White Bread with Self-Starter 1 pint mashed potatoes 1 pint water 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons, heaping, flour Mix while hot, let cool, and add one yeast cake. Set away until needed. To make bread with it, cook 3 small potatoes, mash; while hot, add the water the potatoes were cooked in (about 1 quart), 2 tablespoons flour and 2 of sugar. Beat thorough- ly and let stand until cool, then add to the first mixture. In the morning, stir well and take out about 1 cup of the mixture. Have about 15 cups of flour in bowl (arranged with flour having hollow in center), put in yeast and two- thirds pint warm water to 2 pints yeast. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and mix up stiff. Let rise to twice the original size; mold into loaves; let rise and bake. Mrs. Louis Schwenkmeyer. Cinnamon Buns 2 ounces butter 3 eggs 1/2 yeast cake 1 pint milk 1 teaspoon salt Put milk in double boiler to scald. Beat eggs until light and pour scalded milk over them. Add butter and let stand until luke warm. Then add the yeast, salt, and suffi- cient flour to make a thin batter. Beat thoroughly and con- tinuously for five minutes. Stand in warm place overnight. In the morning add 1 cup flour and beat well. Then add sufficient flour, a little at a time, working all the while with the hands to make a soft dough. Remove to board and knead lightly for ten minutes (this must not be as stiff as bread dough). Place back in pan and let rise until very light. Then take out about half the dough on board and roll into a thin sheet. Spread lightly with butter, cover thickly with sugar, and sprinkle with dried currants and cinnamon. Roll tightly into a long roll. Cut through this roll in pieces about 2 inches long. Place buns flat, closely together in a greased pan. Roll out other half of dough in similar man- ner. Cover and stand again in warm place until very light. Bake in a moderately quick oven for one-half hour. Turn out of pan while hot.

WITH the coming of winter comes roast pork to a promi- nent place in the dinner menu. And pork brings apples with it. For years we have served apple sauce, but leave it to Nancy to find some unusual way to combine the apples and the ham, roast pork or pork chops. She chose apple sauce sifted to a fineness into which she folded whipped cream and freshly grated horseradish. She chose baked apples In the center of which she had stuffed squares of crisp bacon and raisins and lemon peel. Some- times she put tiny crisp sausages in the hollow of the apple. She often spiced prunes and served them. To do this she soaked large prunes over night. Next day she simmered them until tender. As they simmered she added brown sugar and vinegar and two Inches of stick cinnamon. Just before she took them from the fire she added a small amount of cornstarch stirred in cold water and then cooked in the syrup until it became translucent. These spiced prunes made her ex- periment with spiced apples. She chose firm, red skinned cooking ap- ples. She cut them in half-inch thick slices. Then she took out core and cooked the apple rings slowly in a heavy syrup made of equal parts sugar and water. To this she added a little stick cin- namon, a few whole cloves, a ps- picion of ginger and a tablespoon or two of vinegar. When the ap- ples were tender but not broken, she took them out of the syrup and cooked that down until thick. She spooned this over the rings after she had arranged them on the serving plate. Peter voted them a great success. (Copyright. 1929) Frozen Fruit Salad. Dear Miss Hathaway: Please give me a recipe for frozen fruit salad. Thank you. MISS A. A. Here are several recipes: Sprinkle one cup of fresh pine- apple with four tablespoons of powdered sugar or use the sweet- ened canned fruit. Chill for one- half hour. Cut one small bottle of maraschino cherries into pieces and mash one cream cheese. Add the cheese gradually to one cup of whipped cream, keeping the mixture smooth. Drain all the juice from the fruit and fold together, lightly, all the ingredients with one cup of mayonnasie. Place in a mold, or the cylinder of any ice cream freezer, spread with waxed paper, cover, pack in two parts of ice to one of salt and let stand for three hours. Serve on lettuce. Another recipe is to soak one- half tablespoon of gelatin in two tablespoons of cold water and dis- solve over boiling water. Add to three-fourths cup of mayonnaise and three-fourths cup of whipped cream which have been folded to- gether. Combine with one cup each of pitted cherries, sliced peaches, canned pineapple cut into pieces and turn into a mold. Cover with waxed paper the cover of the mold, and pack in two parts ice and one of salt for four hours. Serve on lettuce with more mayonnaise if desired. For another variation, cut four oranges, four bananas and eight large slices of pineapple into small pieces and drain from the juices. Add the fruit to one pint of highly seasoned mayonnaise and fold in one part of cream whipped until stiff. Fill molds with the mixture, seal and pack with two parts ice and one part salt for three hours. Remove from molds, slice and serve on nests of lettuce with Chantilly mayonnaise or equal parts of mayonnaise and whipped cream. This is a large recipe and makes four half-pound baking powder tins full, enough to serve 18 persons. The recipe may be divided. If you have an electric refrigera- tor, turn any of these mixtures into the ice trays and freeze.

There should be two and one-half cups. Soften gelatine in 1-4 cup cold water for ten minutes. Combine prune juice and granu- lated sugar and bring to the boil- ing point. Add softened gelatine and stir until dissolved. Remove from fire and let. stand until cool. Remove stones from prunes, keep- ing the fruit as perfect as possible.

Slices may be cut and boned, then skewered together to make very economical, yet filling, servings of meat. A simple way of cooking: these slices is as follows: Braised Neck Slices. The neck should be cut in slices of about one inch thickness and boned with a thin knife. Fasten each slice into the shape of a round outlet with a skewer. Sprinkle the surface with salt and pepper, cover with a horseradish paste, dip the slices in beaten egg. and then in crumbs. Sear on both sides, add 1 cup of stock, cover and braise in a baking dish nearly an hour or until the meat is tender. Make a gravy of the liquid in the pan and serve over the slices. Accompanying this might be served: Braised Neck Slices Creamed Carrots and Peas Riced Potatoes Tomato Jelly Salad Date Blanc Manage Coffee Either boned neck slices or steaks from the shoulder may be used for this casserole dish: SALAD SURPRISE. Select small deeply colored pimientos or the canned variety now obtainable in perfect little cups, Rinse the cups with cold water and let them marinate in French fruit dressing for an hour. Meantime cut one slice of canned pineapple into shreds, shred two or three pieces of crisped celery, and a quarter cupful of shredded blanched almonds; mix these together and, if obtainable, add half a cupful of white grapes, quartered lengthwise and seeded, Moisten with French fruit dressing and fill the pimiento cups, Insert a sprig of mint or watercress in each and serve on crisp inside leaves of lettuce or romaine. MOLDED COTTAGE-CHEESE SALAD. Mash a pint of cottage cheese very fine, and add three-quarters teaspoonful of salt, one-eighth teaspoonful of paprika and five tablespoonfuls of sweet cream. Then whip in a tablespoonful of granulated gelatin which has been softened with four tablespoonfuls of cold water and melted over hot water. Pour into a cold wet ring mold and set aside to chill for several hours. Mean- while dice one large seedless orange, add half a cupful of diced canned pineapple, a cupful of cut strawberries or rasp- berries, and a few dates which have been seeded and cut in strips. Mix these fruits with any of the whipped-cream dressings. Turn the molded cheese from the ring onto a lettuce-lined chop plate, heap the center with the fruit, and top with a spoonful of the salad dressing selected. Garnish with whole straw- berries or raspberries. --------------------------------------------------------------------- (yellow0078) FRENCH FRUIT DRESSING.

Mash a small cream cheese---the three-ounce size---until it is very smooth, adding three tablespoonfuls of thick cream, a quarter teaspoonful each of salt and paprika, a tablespoonful of lemon juice and two table- spoonfuls of currant jelly which have been whipped smoothly. If you like, fold in two or three tablespoonfuls of whipped cream, but this is not absolutely necessary. Chill the dress- ing very thoroughly before using it. CHERRY SALAD is one of the simplest of summer salad's, but one of the most refresh- ing. Use any variety of ripe cherries which you may prefer and pit them; there should be at least two cupfuls after pitting. Shred half a cupful of blanched almonds and mix them with the cherries; moisten with French fruit GINGER FRUIT SALAD is rather unusual and very good.

OPEN sandwich*** The filling use*** on a cake instead or between two slices of bread, lend themselves to clever designs for the Valentine party. Brown bread sandwiches cut heart shape with a cookie cutter, spread with cream cheese and sprinkled with a few nut meats, can be varied with white bread sandwiches spread with cream, cheese which has been colored a Valentine red with maraschino cherry juice. Oblong pieces of whole wheat bread may be spread with cream cheese on which rings of stuffed olives are placed, while others can feature a red heart cut from pimen- to on the light cheese background. Green heart designs can be made on the white cheese with picalilli using a cone made of stiff, white paper to trace the design. A plate of these festive Valentine sandwiches can be served in addi- tion to plain nutbread and butter or old-fashioned "two faced" sand- wiches; if a sweet taste is desired, a chopped date and nut filling may be used, or for tartness, a chopped ham and mayonnaise offers still further variety. "Of course, all these sandwiches should be well-buttered," says Mrs. Gladys Coon Sommer of the Na- tional Dairy Council. "The health value of the sandwich is materially increased by the use of butter." Many people find chocolate and sandwiches a "happy combination." With the addition of such a milk- made drink, the party refreshments have real health value. Since au- thorities now claim that one of the things which helps the rhythmic beat of the heart is a proper bal- ance of calcium in the body, the liberal use of such foods as milk, *** which the mineral calciur *** lined in large amounts, is *** Such nutritious cal *** refreshments will truly *** life of the part --------------------------------------------------------------------- (yellow0081) Refreshing Summer Drinks STARTING the party with a punch is the secret of success in the good old summer time. The refreshment of fresh fruit drinks is indispensable to languid summer days and lagging summer appetities. The delicate color and fragrance of deep-purple grape juice, the am- ber tang of grapes with ginger ale, the piquancy of a grape rickey lend that indefinable charm to the sum- mer afternoon or evening party. Here are a. few specially selected, healthful summer-drink recipees: Grape Juice Punch. 1 pint grape juice, Juice of 3 lemons, Juice of 1 orange. 1 c sugar. 2 pints water (1 pint may be sparkling water).
