Handwritten Recipe and Earring Wednesday

This clipping reminded me of the onion pie Molly MacRae put up here on Monday. I like the name of Snappy Supper Pie:

Oven 375F.

3 eggs, separated

1 cup dairy sour cream

1/2 cup Pillsbury’s Best All Purpose Flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


1 can (10 1/2 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup

1/2 tsp. instant minced onion

3 tablespoons flour

Dash pepper

1 cup cubed cooked ham

1 can (8 oz.) green beans, drained

1/2 cup cubed Cheddar cheese, if desired

No need to sift the flour; measure by lightly spooning into cup and leveling off. Separate eggs, putting whites in small mixer bowl and yolks in large mixing bowl. Beat egg whites at high speed until soft mounds form. In large mixing bowl, combine egg yolks, sour cream, flour and salt. By hand, blend well. Fold egg whites gently but thoroughly into egg yolk batter. Pour half of batter into a greased 10-inch pie pan or 1 1/2 quart casserole. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Bake at 375F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven; spoon filling into center. Pour remaining batter over filling. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven; bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Filling: In large saucepan, combine undiluted soup, instant minced onion, pepper and flour. Simmer for 5 minutes; stir in ham, green beans, and cheese.

Seafood Supper Pie: (oh boy) Substitute 1 can tuna, drained, or 1 can large shrimp, drained, for the ham. Gently stir tuna in with cubed Cheddar cheese.

This doesn’t sound too bad – except for the seafood variations…

My designer friend Sarajo Wentling has inspired an awesome jewelry obsession in me now, I think. I’ve been making lots of earrings for various raffles, craft fairs and more. I made these pink and silver earrings to raffle at a book reading last night, and attached them to the recipe postcard for the story I read. (I know they are kind of hard to see, but I forgot to photograph them by themselves!) While these butterfly earrings are kind of plain, I made them for a hipster niece who likes black. I’m posting them partly as I am now trying to make my own butterfly beads – but more on that to come. Check out Sarajo’s blog for more information on the earring challenge and to see her beautiful designs.

    I LOVE that you have been bitten by the jewelry-making bug! Both pairs are super cute… and now I’m intrigued to find out what you’re working on to make your own butterfly beads. I’ll stay tuned!

    Oh my goodness!! I specifically went searching the web today for this recipe because I was telling a co-worker today about a funny family story…my mom used to make it and I loved it as a kid. When my boys were little, I made it one night and it was one of those dinner times where EVERYTHING was a fight. I’m not proud, but I’m afraid in my frustration I turned the dinnertime into one of those “You’ll eat it or wear it!!!” Kind of dinners. Anyway, I haven’t made it again since and the boys are now 18, 16 & 15. To this day, their “worst food ever!” is “Snappy Supper Pie” (I don’t think the youngest was even born when I made it…they certainly don’t even remember what it was. But I thought I’d see if I could find the clipping online (mine is now handwritten) but THIS IS THE EXACT SAME CLIPPING my mom had!!! What a joy to see it again!! Do you have any idea the original source? Thank you so much for posting this!!!
