I am devoting this segment of the GG to recipes provided by Graland students.

Steve Bain ’77 contributed this recipe for German Potato Pancakes, a Friday night staple in my home after my mother discovered I liked them, especially with homemade applesauce:

3 large red potatoes
1 onion
1 egg
3 T. flour
1 T. salt

Peel and grate the potatoes and the onion. Add egg, flour, and salt; mix well. Heat shortening in skillet; form mixture into pancakes and fry. Turn after edges turn golden brown.

However, Joanna Hambidge ‘79 and her recipe for oatmeal cookies would be perfect for breakfast since eating oatmeal cookies from Schrafft’s was my favorite breakfast in the 1960’s.  

3 C. shortening soft
1 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. sifted flour
1 tsp. of salt
½ cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
¼ C. water
½ tsp. soda
3 C. of oats, uncooked

Cream sugars and shortening. Add egg, water, and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients (except oats) together add and mix well. Stir in oats. Drop from a teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
