So, today's recipe for Amish Rhubarb Crunch got me thinking about what desserts I would be most likely to find at an Amish gathering… Now, this ill vary a little bit depending on whether it’s a wedding, a funeral, or an after- church service or just a family gathering… So I’m trying to create a list of most likely dessert. It will be interesting to see if some of our Amish and Mennonite readers, we do have some on this list, agree or disagree…Here are the 5 I beleive you'd be most likely to find at any random Amish gathering:
Raisin Pie: It’s almost always pie at a gathering… The question then becomes what kind? Well, apple pie is common, but it’s not a shoe-in. Oatmeal pie is a shoe-in in certain Amish communities. So if I were going to try to pick the most likely flavor of pie that I would find at any random Amish gathering it would be raisin pie. It’s found at most funerals, but also served at some after church gatherings etc. Here is a recipe.
Delight: There is a delight at most gatherings. Cherry delight seems to be the most common
Rhubarb Crunch: It may not always be “rhubarb crunch “sometimes with rhubarb cake… But usually rhubarb shows up in some form at an Amish gathering.
Cookies: Cookies are almost always found at an Amish gathering. My vote would go to Monster Cookies as most likely.
Cake: Always at least one cake at an Amish gathering and, all things being equal, my odds would go to a Jello cake.
