I was digging around in my garage last night ("digging" being sadly realistic) and I came across an old book I'd forgotten I even had. It's called The Tolkien Scrapbook and was printed in 1978. It's got essays, fanfic (!) and .... recipes in a section called "The Middle-earth Gourmet" by Maureen Bayha and Alida Becker! I have to say that the honey cake one sounds very intriguing. Here they are:

Frodo's Scones )

Bilbo's Orange Marmelade )

Smaug's Gems )

Fruit Fool a la Sackville-Baggins )

Merry's Mulled Cider )

Mrs. Maggot's Cottage Pie )

Mushroom Soup from the Inn at Bree )

Mirkwood Cookies )

Beorn's Honey Nut Cake )

Scotch Eggs Strider )

Baked Bluefish for Gollum )

I made 12 dozen of these cookies and took them to our local fire station to thank the firefighers for saving my home and town. They disappeared in minutes! These cookies are easy to make and freeze well and are just delicious. And they are pretty, too.

Jello Cookies

3/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 oz. package undissolved Jello (cherry, orange, lemon, strawberry-banana or whatever - mixing several batches and combining the different colored cookies makes a really pretty gift)
2 eggs
2 1/2 c sifted flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
sugar

Mix first five ingredients together until creamy. Add remaining ingredients. Roll into balls and roll balls in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and press gently with the bottom of a drinking glass which has been dipped in sugar. Bake at 325 degrees until cookie looks done (8-12 minutes - be careful the bottom doesn't scorch). Let cool completely before removing from cookie sheet.

I don't know how many this makes because they never survive long enough to be counted.

In the series Share-your-national-food-recepies, we now come to Norway and I´ll be sharing several traditional recepies with you. First a dinner course, then a national dessert and then a cake that also is used as dessert.

One of the recepies does also have something to do with lembas... :) )

A new member, I'm looking forward to sharing these great recipies with all of you. Err....not the best cook, but I'll try my best. Here's something that even I can make.


Smaug's Gems

1)1 cup of Vanilla wafer crumbs
2)1 cup of confectioners' sugar
3)1 cup of chopped nuts
4)1 tablespoon of cocoa
5)2 tablespoons of light corn syrup
6)1/4 cup of whiskey

Combine 1 cup of vanilla wafer crumbs, 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1 cup of chopped nuts, and 1 tablespoon of cocoa in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup and 1/4 cup of whiskey. Mix well and shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar and place in an air-tight container. Store in the refrigerator. 15-20 minutes should be good, but experiment with what tastes better (some people like it to be more runny, or not completely set.)

I can just see Bilbo learning this sort of recipie from the Dwarfs as a quick snack on the road. Of course, the 'whiskey' would probably be replaced with 'Dwarvish Mead'.

It's really not that much whiskey, though it may look like it. Still, if you're not sure, I guess you could use a replacement of sorts.
