Holiday Bazaar, Friendship Tea & Peanut Butter Candy






I enjoy attending various bazaars and craft shows in our area during the holidays. Wallaceton Baptist, a small country church about 5 miles from our Kentucky town, held their annual bazaar on Saturday. The weather was cold, windy and raining, but I am glad I went. They had lots of hand crafted items and the church recipe books for sale along with lunch and a bake sale. I purchased two containers of Friendship Tea shown in the photos above. Everyone has a different way of packaging this spiced tea mix. I liked the way these were packaged in "re-cycled" containers covered with pretty paper and 3-D Christmas design teapot stickers attached to the front.

I also purchased a couple of handcrafted Christmas tree ornaments including a cinnamon stick bundle decorated with mini pine cones and a ribbon and a fabric angel. I collect church recipe book s and couldn't pass up this one. I also brought home a plate of sliced Peanut Butter Roll, GJ's favorite homemade candy, but the candy disappeared before I took the above photo. The recipe is below:
Peanut Butter Roll
1 (2 lb.) bag powdered sugar
1 stick margarine, softened
2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can Carnation milk
Mix above ingredients (except peanut butter with the milk, adding a little milk at a time until stiff like biscuit dough. (You can use you hands to mix.) Do not add too much milk or it will not roll.
Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece between two pieces of wax paper to make a circle. Remove top sheet of wax paper and spread peanut butter on the dough. Roll this up and wrap in wax paper and chill. Slice and store in an airtight container until ready to eat. Makes four rolls.
