Fall recipe reminders

Since fall is here I thought I would reprint some of the recipe's for SAMHAIN. Plus have to tell you the Mead is coming along wonderfully. I'm going to do what my daughter suggested, and add it to fresh cider for a wonderful taste.

1 3/4 C. Oatmeal
1/4 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
7 Tsp. Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
7 tsp. Hot water
Combine the oatmeal, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, cinn. and sugar in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter and then add the hot water, one spoon at a time, stir good with each addition until mixture becomes smooth, but firm paste. Roll it into a ball, sprinkle with extra oatmeal, then roll it out on a board. Cut out with cookie cutters or just use a glass. Bake at 350 degrees fro 15 minutes. Done!

2 quarts apple cider
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Ginger
1/2 cups confectioners sugar
after heating
add 1/2 cup (or so, according to taste) apricot brandy.
Now you SLOWLY simmer on LOW HEAT for a while. DON'T LET IT BOIL. Then add the brandy. YUMMMMMY
