Here’s a quick rundown of the most delicious food we ate and interesting places we went during this past year.
At the Henry Ford Bungalow, guests are greeted with a plate of tender oatmeal cookies, baked from scratch by long-time Pequaming resident and manager, Therese Korpi. Plump, tangy cranberries and earthy walnuts fill these palm-sized treats, making them the perfect anecdote to a tall glass of lemonade. Nibble slowly—make it last—and pretend you are lounging in a white rocking chair on the Bungalow’s covered porch, watching a blazing sunset dip into the Keweenaw Bay.
1 ¾ c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
¾ c. light brown sugar, heaped and packed until rounded
¾ c. sugar
1 c. butter-flavored Crisco
2 large eggs
1 egg white
1 tsp. vanilla
2 ¼ c. old-fashioned oats
½ c. dried cranberries
2 oz. chopped walnuts
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time:12 minutes
Servings: 2 1/2 to 3 dozen
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon into a bowl; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together sugars and Crisco with an electric mixer on low speed. Add eggs and egg white. Beat mixture on medium speed for two minutes until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and blend.
Add flour mixture, beating on low speed until smooth. Stir in oats, walnuts and cranberries and mix until all ingredients are incorporated and the dough is sticky.
Using a tablespoon, space dough evenly on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes and let stand for one minute before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Serve with a glass of lemonade or hot tea or coffee and enjoy!
The V formation itself is a thing of beauty. I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility. When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
