January 16, 1991|By Sherrie Clinton | Sherrie Clinton,Evening Sun Staff

This delicious recipe is for Helen Turowski of Baltimore. It is from Miriam Colimore of Columbia.

Chicken Pot Pie

2 cans 10 3/4 -ounce each cream of potato soup

1 16-ounce can mixed vegetables, drained

2 cups cooked, diced chicken

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 9-inch pie crusts, thawed

1 egg, slightly beaten, optional

Combine first six ingredients. Spoon into prepared pie crust. Cover with top crust, crimp edges to seal. Slit top crust and brush with egg, if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

Here's a recipe I can't wait to try. A. Michele Fuller of Baltimore had asked for a simple dinner roll recipe. Jo Ann M. Nuetzel, one of our Recipe Finder regulars, sent us this recipe. She says it is from a 1963 bread cookbook.

Batter Dinner Rolls

1 package active dry yeast or 1 cake compressed yeast

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup shortening

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk, scalded

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 slightly beaten egg

1 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour

Soften dry yeast in warm water (110 degrees) or compressed yeast in lukewarm water (85 degrees). Combine shortening, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add scalded milk; stir ununtil shortening is melted. Cool to lukewarm.

Start mixer on medium speed; add two cups of flour. Beat one minute or ununtil gluten strands are practically visible. Stop mixer. Add softened yeast and egg. Beat batter smooth on medium speed, about one-half minute. Add remaining 1 1/4 cups flour. Beat batter at medium speed until smooth, about two minutes. Since batter is stiff, you might need to push it away from beaters with a rubber spatula occasionally. Cover dough, let rise until double, about one hour. Stir down. Drop batter by tablespoons into greased muffin pans, filling them half full. Let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake in 400 degree oven about 15 minutes.
