Amish Romants and Kereun TV | Suthern Plate
Latelee I’ve finallee gotte roun t'a'trine a few recipes I’ve had on mah “must make” lis fer well ovr a decade, today is one uf 'um. I furst read about Revel bars shertlee aftr I gut marrd wen I wuz reedin un Amish romants. I’m purty shure it wuz a Beverlee Lewis one. If'n y'all’ve nevr checkd out inny uf hern books but enjoy reedin, I reckon y'all’ll be verr pleezed. I luv wen I a'ken read sumthin jes fer t'pure pleshur (nairy becawz it is required as part uf mah job) and come out uf it with a lil wisdom t'add t'who I am.
I don’t remembr which book thishere wuz, but n' t'stery t'mane care ackter gut hern fambly out uf t'rayler so she could make these secretlee as a sprize fer hern mothr’s birthdy. I remembr a'thankin “Noe thems must be sum kine uf good.” I shure wasn’t disappointed.
T' thang I like about 'um is that thay air sweet n' t'centr, but overall thay are’t knock-y'all-down sweet. Uf corse, with t'heertee dough, thay air fillin as well, which is anothr thang I rilly like n' mah cookies and treets becawz y'all git into a slew less troubull that way.
I’m on a bit uf a tite deedline thishere month with mah book editin' due direckly and anothr big project that will be releesed thishere summr, so I’ll keep it shert and sweet and gif' y’all t'recipe
Y'all’ll need: Vanilla (cheep is fine, if'n y'all want t'spend more money fer t'real stuff and it’s jes burnin a hoe n' yer pocket, that’s fine too), brown sugar (lite er dark), sweetened condensed milk, bakin' sody, aigs, buttr, salt, quik oats, chocolate chips, and if'n y'all want t', about a teespoon uf instunt coffee granules.*
Note: I added n' t'instunt coffee part n' ordr t'hep me git mah recommended dailee requirement uf caffeine. It wuz deliciyus and jes added a hint uf somethin’ somethin’ t' bars but all uf t'originull recipes leeve it out so y'all jes do whutever is eaziest fer y'all here. T' bars will be yummy eethur way.
Befor we git started, cut acoupla tablespoons uf buttr frum one uf t'stix and set that aside t'use n' t'fillin latr.
Place remainin' buttr and brown sugar n' a mixin' bowl and mix with un electric mixr until creemy.
Okay so I gotta tell y'all whut I did las week. I knoe I sed I wuz gonna keep thishere shert and sweet so jes skip ovr thishere part if'n y'all want .
I’ve purty much gif' up on Amurkin tv. I meun, we do soooo minny a thangs well n' thishere kuntry but t'circus has take hold uf television netwerks and I deecided long ago nairy t'buy a ticket t'hat event. So uther thun Downt'n Abby, reruns uf t'Walt'ns, Lil Trayler, and Dr Quinn, thar isn’t a whole slew out thar fer me and y'all knoe I like t'sit down and watch sumthin frum time t'ime. So I’ve take t'watchin Kereun television. I knoe, that sounds rilly odd becawz if'n y'all had uf tole me a month ago that I would be watchin television n' which I had t'relee on English subtitles t'faller t'stery, I would have nevr bleevd y'all. (I usual find subtitles fur too distractin') T' thang is, Kereun drama is rilly good and I’ve foun a few uther friens who luv it jes as much as I do. Okay, so seriouslee, if'n thishere is t'furst time I’ve seemt weird t'y'all the y'all’re obviouslee nairy hangin out with me enough.
So I’ve bee watchin Kereun television and I’ve pickt up a few phrases, uf corse. Nairy mah intent, but it jes happens ovr time. I knoe a few Amish phrases, too, so magine t'fun I’d be at a partee. Maybe I could pertend I wuz un Amish/Kereun immigrant frum t'greet state uf Bama.
Anywho, whar I lif', altho it is n' Bama, is nairy neerly as denselee populated with Southerners as uther arees uf Bama. N' Huntsville, we have folk frum all ovr t'worl and I’d ventchur t'say that t'majeritee uf folk who lif' n' air area air nairy frum air area, which makes fer a neat cultchur settled n' t'middle uf t'Heert uf Dixie. I wuz n' Sam’s t'uther day and wuz goin ovr a series I had bee watchin n' mah hed, mentallee ritin possibull outcomes and wunderin whar it wuz goin t'go nex (I always mentallee write shows I watch, I do that with books too), and sum folk walkt by me a'talkin. I heerd tell 'um speakin n' Kereun.
N' mah hed I thunk “Oh mah goodness, I’m losin mah mind, noe English sounds like Kereun t'me!” I breethed a huge sigh uf relief wen I eyesd thay were ackshly… Kereun. Whew. Christee’s las remainin' brane cell is still holdin on!
Y'all a'ken watch Kereun Drama on HuluPlus and I reckon Netflix, too. I started with a series callt “Faith” which is also sumtimes callt “T' Greet Docter”. It will take sum gittin used t'becawz uf cultural differences, but I’ve jes rilly enjoyed t'shows I’ve see so fur. I’m on mah thurd series noe and generly watch acoupla er three episodes a week.
Oncet y'all gut that all creemified, add n' yer uther dough ingredients.
Beat t'ar out uf that until it looks like thishere.
Pat 2/3 uf that into t'bott'm uf a 9×13 bakin' dish that has bee sprayed with cookin spray.
Thishere is rilly easy t'pat out if'n y'all wet yer hands furst becawz that keeps it frum stickin'.
Noe put yer sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons buttr, and instunt coffee granules (if'n usin thems) n' a microwave safe bowl.
Thishere bowl is old as Methuselah and startin t'shoe it.
Here is a top view uf t'bowl, n' case y'all jes rilly wanted t'see it.
I did thishere post durin air lil Bama Monsoon, whar it rained fer neerly a week strate. I try t'do posts on sunny days so t'pictures turn out bettr but aftr waitin three days t'make these, I finallee gave up and gut t'wurk.
Melt all uf thishere n' t'microwave, fer about thirtee sekunds at a time, stirrin' aftr each interval, until it is smooth and creemy
Until y'all’re tard uf foolin' with it.
I luv bein bull t'say that. We’re nairy goin fer perfecshun here, we’re goin fer sumthin that will taste good and it’s amazin hoe minny a recipes are’t neerly as picky as recipes make 'um out t'be.
Stir it up rilly rilly good if'n y'all added t'coffee granules so thay will dissolve n' thar.
Be shure y'all don’t use coffee, jes t'granules, becawz t'watr n' t'coffee will cawz yer chocolate t'clot and becum one big old mess.
Spred that ovr yer crust.
Isn’t that purty?
Sprinkle t'res uf yer dough battr on top. I breek off lil clumps and jes drop it ovr t'chocolate until I run out.
Bake at 350 fer 25-30 minutes er until lightlee brownd on top.
Alloe t'cool plum befor cuttin into bars.
These travel rilly well and air purrfeck treets t'send t'wurk, skool, er as gifts fer friens.
Uf corse, y'all’ll need t'sample a cuple yerself furst. ~grins~
