A couple more "treasure" recipes

I have not tried these out myself as of yet but do plan to soon. I found these recipes at Uncle Jessie's; the Fruit Punch is hand written and the Drop Crust Pie is typed onto a index card with a very old typewriter - remember those?

FRUIT PUNCH

48 ozs. Apple Juice
48 ozs. Pineapple juice
24 ozs. Orange juice
one 6 oz can lemonade, frozen
3/4 to 1 cup sugar

Boil for 2 minutes

2 teaspoons whole cloves
and 3 to 4 sticks of cinnamon

Strain above mixture.
Add 1 quart Ginger Ale before serving.

DROP CRUST PIE
(Miss Pearl Beard)

This is good with apples, blackberries, or any other stewed fruit. Have fruit, sweetened and seasoned, simmering in a baking pan. Then add drop crust, made as follows:

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk (very scanty)

Mix dry ingredients, work in shortening, and add milk. This makes a very soft dough. Drop be spoonsful over surface of bubbling fruit mixture and spread to cover it completely. (This cooks the bottom of the crust) Place in oven at once and bake at 350 degrees until done.

We have a little round pan, 8" across and 2" deep which just takes a can of pie apples and leaves room for the crust on top without the juices running over. Now we have you grand apples & can make fresh apple sauce for the pie.
Love, Laura

I love the personal note at the bottom of the pie recipe. It's actually an index sized postcard mailed Oct 19, 1949 and it cost a PENNY to mail. WOW! And it was mailed to a Miss Toccoa Sanders - I love old names as much as old recipes.
