Cookbook Update #2: research and Apple Nut Coffee Ring

Research at the city library confirmed many facts of the history portion.  One new detail was that there is some discussion about the person Clarkesville is named after.  Most people believe it was General John C. Clark, a revolutionary hero and later governor of Georgia.  Some hold to the idea it was his father, Elijah Clarke, a revolutionary general who was the namesake because John later dropped the “e” from his name.  Clarkesville does have an “e.”

I am getting close to the end.  Only two more stories need added information and one more to completely write.  And today I finished the Apple Nut Coffee Ring recipe test.  I had planned to make it for Sunday refreshment.  I got the dough made and, as directed, put in the refrigerator.  Good to know that it will keep up to 3 days in the ‘frig.  I was working on the cookbook but didn’t want to stay up all night to let the dough stay in the ‘frig for 3 hours then roll it out and let rise to double!  Why didn’t I start this earlier?  I really wanted to go to bed.  So I made something else but still didn’t get to bed, ….at all.  Still paying for it today, 2 days later.  Anyway, I finished the recipe tonight.  So yummy.  Drizzle icing over the ring when almost cool.  I topped off one roll with chopped nuts and craisins (which are supposed to be candied cherries.  Where can you get candied cherries?  I remember Mom using them, even remember what the packaging was like, but I can’t find them.)
