Sticky Buns (Domino Sugar)

This recipe was cut out of a sugar box and included a handy tab at the top making it easy to find in the recipe box. But this particular one has been worn down over time so that it no longer says ‘sticky buns’ on it. Does that mean it was well used? Or, skipped over a lot?

1 package (13 3/4 oz) yeast roll mix

1 1/4 cups firmly packed Domino Dark Brown Sugar

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Regal Peach Pie

This recipe card is really messy – not because it has spills or stains on it, but because the author of the card was clearly disorganized. They could have gone onto the back of the card to write out the instructions, but instead crammed them on the front. She also indicated “over” at one point, but there’s nothing written on the back!

Regal Peach Pie

2 cups peaches

1 tbs lemon juice

1/4 cup sugar

3 tbs cornstarch

2 tbs margarine or butter

1/4 tsp almond extract

Sprinkle peaches with lemon and sugar, let stand 1 hour. Drain. Use 1 cup of syrup, add to cornstarch & blend well. Stir this over low heat until thick. Add rest of ingredients except peaches. Cool. Place peaches in mixture…

Add peaches to cooled glaze, then pour into unbaked pie crust. Top with dabs of butter/margarine. Add a top crust. Bake at 400º 45-50 minutes.
