Expensive Suns: Are you or someone on the grounds of Sun Spotters wondering if you have a recipe for Hermit cookies or bars? I looked at all my mother’s recipes and did not find any recipes. I know she has once because she always does them. Thanks for all your help. – No name, Lewiston
Answer Maybe your mom knew that recipe by heart and never wrote it down. And when I found out I had a recipe for something and couldn’t find it, I can definitely get in touch. It’s like looking for a needle in a pile of grass! One of these days, I will be more organized.
Hermes always reminds me of a dear friend whom I have prepared several times in Boudineham’s kitchen. Here is my recipe for “Cooking Down East” at Marjorie Station, but I’d love to give it a try and I’m sure readers of Sun Spot will also look for alternatives. These cookies are such a Maine thing.
Old Fashion Hermes: 1/2 cup whipped cream in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, then slowly add in 1 cup sugar. Beat in 1 egg until smooth and creamy.
In a separate bowl add 2 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cream tartar and 1/4 teaspoon together. Each of them Ground clove, alfalfa, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add 1/2 cup milk, preferably dry ingredients, to the resulting mixture. Add 1 cup chopped raisins.
I just stick them on a cutting board and cut them roughly with a sharp knife – just be careful!
Sprinkle the dessert on a greased baking sheet with a spoon or cover the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. This recipe makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies.
Dear Suns: Thank you so much for posting the ELHS section on the ’61’ reunion announcement (July 13 Suns). It really was a busy time and we appreciate being able to get the word out! Thanks for the suggestions, including my missing classmates, but we couldn’t do that because of this short time.
Sun spots are a gem in the Sun Journal. I always enjoy reading the questions and answers, announcements and comments. Thanks again. – Nancy, no city
Answer thanks you! I am happy with the coercion. Just remember that I always have to work early because I have a time limit, when you have sunscreen items that affect the time of day, add an extra week to get your questions and ads on time. . I really hate frustrated people so please plan accordingly.
