My daughter Joan got her hope chest for her 10th birthday this year. She also got a number of wonderful cookbooks to put into the chest. Her favorite so far has been her Taste of Home Cookbook…the All New Edition. It is packed with amazing recipes! Nothing too complicated or fancy, just good ol’fashioned cookin’ at it’s best. Joan and my other daughter Anna love to sit and just page through cookbooks reading the recipes and looking at the photos. I did this myself as a child, as did my mother when she was a child.
This recipe is one that Joan picked out from her Taste of Home cookbook for her first menu that she put together. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family did!
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
8 tablespoons cold butter, cubed, divided
5 bacon strips cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup apple cider or juice
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, baking soda and apple pie spice. Cut in 7 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the bacon. Stir in the cider just until combined.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll into a 10-in. x 6-in rectangle. Melt remaining butter; brush over dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Cut into eight rectangles. Place 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
