Ah, 350 degrees. It's that old standby, gold-standard temperature that most of our baking/cooking gets done at. Amish cooks are no different, in fact, without temperature controls on their ovens (some Amish do have gas ovens with control knobs), 350 becomes an even more vital temperature. Many Amish cooks have portable or built-in thermometers on their stoves. I've heard the term "slow oven" among Amish cooks and that usually refers to an oven temperature of 320 or lower, that setting might be used to bake a pie for a very long time.
So, we're dipping deep into the Amish365 archives today feature five favorite recipes that call for "Bake at 350" (LOL, which is almost very recipe but, hey, let's pick 5!)
