OLD MAGAZINE CLIPPINGS FOR CREAMY HERB & ORANGE GINGER DIPS

I have no idea how old these recipes are but I don't think they are as old as some posted here.  This clipping is also from my late mother's shoebox of clippings.  Looks like it was with a Hellmann's ad.

YEAST ROLLS

This is another recipe from the 1955 Marshall Township PTA.  This recipe was submitted by Mrs. Wm. McKee Anderson.  Does anyone remember who this might be?

1 cup milk
2 tbsp. shortening
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
About 3 cups of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 cake yeast
2 tbsp. lukewarm water

Heat milk and add shortening, sugar, and salt.  When lukewarm, add the yeast cake, dissolved in water.  Add 1 cup flour and beat thoroughly.  Cover and set in a warm place to rise until light, about 1 hour.  Add remaining flour to make a firm dough.  Knead on a lightly floured board until smooth and elastic to the touch. Cover and set in a warm place to rise until double in bulk.  Knead down, shape into rolls, bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

OLD RECIPE CLIPPING FOR HOT WATER RAISIN CAKE

This is another of the old recipes from my late mother's shoebox of clippings.  I have no idea if she made this cake.  I do not like raisins so if she made it, I would not have eaten any!

COFFEE-GLAZED BAKED HAM

1 (8 to 10 lb) bone-in, fully cooked smoked half ham
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups freshly brewed coffee

If ham has skin, remove the skin.  Trim fat to about 1/4-inch thickness.

Place ham in lightly greased broiler pan.

Combine the brown sugar and coffee in a medium-size bowl; stir until sugar dissolves.

Pour the sugar-coffee mixture over the ham.

Place ham in oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours  until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion reads 140 degrees.

Transfer to serving platter, cool for a few minutes, slice and serve.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings
