February 2010 Business Meeting
Mix in order given (I mix by hand so as to not over beat):
⅓ cup butter or margarine, room temperature
1 cup sugar
⅔ cup flour
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
Divide dough into two equal-ish parts.
To one half add:
1 ½ square baker's chocolate, melted
½ cup coconut
½ tsp. almond extract
To the other half add:
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup chopped maraschino cherries
Put chocolate mixture into greased 8" x 8" pan; then spoon the cherry mixture on top. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
Frost with chocolate icing (below) when still slightly warm. Mix ingredients with mixer till spreading consistency.
2 ¼ cups confectioner's sugar
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened, not melted
½ tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt
¼ cup cocoa
2-3 Tbsp. milk
Let cool and cut into 16 squares (cut each in half for daintier pieces).
