Chari at Happy To Design has bestowed upon me this award, a Blogging Friends Forever gold card. How great is that? Please check out her blog to be dazzled by her sense of design.There are three rules attached to this award: l. You may choose five people/blogs to give the award. 2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog. 3. One has to be a new follower of your blog or live in another part of the world.

I would like to pass this award onto the following who I would be honored to think they were dedicated followers of my blog. It is more that I am a dedicated follower of THEIR blogs. At any rate, I always enjoy their thoughts when they comment on my posts.

Here is a recipe that has been around for years, but usually it has a filling of a fruit jam. I rarely see it as my family likes it -- with apple butter.

This is what you need:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups oatmeal

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup melted butter (2 sticks)

1 1/2 cups apple butter

Stir flour, soda, salt, oats, and sugar together. Add melted butter stirring thoroughly until all dry ingredients are mixed in.
Press half of oat mixture firmly in greased 9 x 13 pan. Spread with apple butter. Pat remaining oat mixture lightly on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Try to wait until they are cool to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by,

Paris! My son Travis took French in high school hoping that our church calls him on a mission to France! He won't be 19 until next May and is willing to go wherever he is called but he hopes it is French-speaking somewhere! I'll have to show him your blog on it! My niece went to France years ago on her mission but I forget which mission.
