Beyond Hot Dish and Jello

 Perhaps it is because I live in Minnesota, but the long standing joke is that us Lutherans love our hot dishes and Jello salads. I am not here to debate this fact, since I have been to many amazing "potluck" dinners at my church, but today St. John's Lutheran Church proved that they love milk and cookies too. Bremer Farms served milk and cookies after each service today in celebration of June Dairy Month. After twenty-five dozen cookies and many gallons of milk, no one had to be convinced how tasty and refreshing a cold glass of milk is! 

My sugar cookies were a hit today, so I included the recipe for all of you to enjoy.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Roll in 1" balls and press down with the bottom of a drinking glass that has been dipped in sugar.  Bake 6 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 8 dozen.

  1. Great post--What a wonderful way to promote milk!

    1. Thanks. We had a great time sharing the product we are so proud to supply to consumers. Retired farmers shared stories of their farming days with us. Kids shared stories about their favorite dairy foods, and moms thanked us for the healthy foods our farm helps to produce. What a blessing to be farmers!
