1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk

1. Preheat oven to 400°
2. Combine flour and next five ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a medium bowl
3. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles a course meal
4. Combine buttermilk, egg and rind, stir well with whisk.
5. Add buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until moist.
6. Gently fold in blueberries.
7. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray and bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until muffin spring back when lightly touched.
8. Remove muffins from pan immediately and place on wire rack to cool
9. For the glaze, come by and lemon juice and powdered sugar in a small bowl. Drizzle glaze evenly over cooled muffins.

I think in step 9, she meant to say "combine lemon juice and powdered sugar."
This is a glaze I often use on lemon pound cakes and it is yummy! These were
the best lemon/blueberry muffins I've ever had.

KOLACKY (original from Dorothy Reicha)
1 pkg. yeast
½ c. warm water
½ c. sugar
½ c. melted shortening
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. milk scalded and cooled to lukewarm
5 c. flour
2 # prunes
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. poppy seeds
1 t. vinegar
1 can evap. milk
Just follow a basic dough recipe and for the filling, mix all together and heat over low heat until heated through. We put the dough into cupcake tins and pressed up the sides then filled generously with filling.
Okay, I found this online:
Directions for basic rolls:
Heat the milk to 120 degrees F to 130 degrees F; add the butter and set aside to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Add cooled milk, eggs, and sugar to dissolved yeast and stir to blend. With a wooden spoon stir in 2 cups of the flour and the salt; stir until smooth. Add 2 cups of remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring vigorously for 3 to 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic and only slightly sticky. (Only if needed, after 3 minutes of stirring and dough is overly wet, stir in 1 tablespoon flour at a time.
Cover the surface of the dough with lightly oiled plastic wrap. Cover the top of the bowl with a second piece of plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled (1 to 2 hours).*

CAPE COD CRANBERRY MUFFINS
Start to finish: 30 mins. Recipe compliments of Angie Graeber
Makes: 18 muffins
Preheat oven to 350*
1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (real butter)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons canola oil
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder 3/4 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon salt 2/3 cup orange juice
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (toast beforehand if desired)
Position oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of oven. Preheat oven. Line muffin cups with paper cupcake liners.
Place cranberries in food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside
In small saucepan, combine butter and oil and heat until butter melts. Stir in sugar (it will not dissolve). In a large bowl, use a wooden spoon to stir together the eggs and orange juice. Stir in sugar/butter mixture, then add dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. When flour is almost incorporated, stir in the cranberries and walnuts. Fill muffin cups until almost full with batter, about 1/4 cup each.
Bake 18-20 minutes, one pan on each shelf. Halfway through baking, rotate pans front to back and switch from one shelf to the other. Bake until muffins are golden brown and tops are springy to touch. Cool and enjoy!
These are delicious with coffee!
|Basic Plain Roll Dough used for coffee cake
1 c. milk, scalded
2 T. Shortening or butter
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1 pkg. fast acting yeast (or regular yeast)
1/4 c. lukewarm water (110)
1 well beaten egg
3 1/2 c. flour
Soften yeast in lukewarm water (110). (Can at 1/2 - 1 t. sugar if desired) Combine milk, shortening, sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in 1 c. flour. Add yeast and egg. Add remaining flour to form soft dough. Grease a large bowl and add dough to bowl, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place until doubled, about 1-2 hours. I turn my oven to 200 to preheat, then turn off and place in warmed oven.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface and roll to a 12x18" (??) rectangle. Make rectangle whatever length your baking pan in. Spread apricot or any filling to all edges except one long edge. Roll like a jelly roll and seal, placing seal side down on greased baking sheet. I used parchment paper. Cover and let rise again approximately 1 hour. Bake at 350 25-30 minutes. You can make two smaller rolls if desired. Other ideas are spread with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar, raisins and roll; brown sugar and cinnamon and roll and slice, cut side down in pan with more brown sugar and butter melted with pecans. I like sugar with grated orange peel. Use your imagination!
I frost with approx. 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 2T butter melted, 1 t. vanilla and enough milk to make a thick glaze and spread while rolls are hot. Adjust milk/powdered sugar to desired consistency.
Sorry I can't be more exact, I just do it.
