If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Flat Bread (untested)

This recipe is written in a handwriting I didn't recognize. I thought it appeared to be an older recipe based on the yellowing of the recipe card and guessed it dated from the 1950s. Then my mom gave me more info on the recipe:
"The Flat Bread recipe was written by me! I think it was in grade school when we were studying the Pilgrims, or something. I was so proud to have it in the recipe box, but I don't remember what it was like to eat it."
So my guess on the date was correct. Cool! I wondered how a recipe for flat bread got in the recipe box. Now I know!

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup yellow corn meal
  • 4 tablespoons  butter
  • 2/3 cup warm water

  1. Sift flour
  2. Measure it and sift again with corn meal and salt
  3. Mix in butter until crumbly
  4. Stir in warm water
  5. Chill for 15-20 minutes
  6. Roll chilled dough into 1-inch to 1.5-inch diameter balls
  7. Roll each ball into a paper thin circle
  8. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 375°F for 5 minutes or until lightly brown

Pin It!
