Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Raspberry Ribbons

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

1 C butter
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2 1/4 C flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 C raspberry jam

Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.  Stir in the egg and vanilla.  Mix the dry ingredients well and stir into the batter.  Divide the dough into four portions.  Shape each into a 10 x 2 inch log and press down to make it ½ inch thick.  Make a depression down the center of each log.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Fill the depressions with the jam and bake for 10-15 minutes longer or until lightly browned.  Cool, cut into slices, sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
