Recipes at Mackin House
Over the years, we have baked treats and goodies at some of our festive events and during scheduled tours as activities. Here, we will share with you some of the yummy recipes we have made in the past!
OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP SUNFLOWER SEED COOKIES: Quite a delicious mouthful! We served these cookies during our Grow-your-own Sunflower event in April 2013. They almost taste like peanut butter cookies but have no peanuts; a great alternative for those with peanut allergies!
MAPLE OATMEAL COOKIES: These cookies were out for your enjoyment during the weekend of Festival du Bois in early March 2013. They were so popular that we ran out!
SUGAR COOKIES: This recipe is from a 1915 Five Roses Cook Book. We followed the recipe and served these cookies during our Valentine’s Day Card making event, February 2013. We also baked these cookies for our Book Club members on Valentine’s Day!
LEMON BARS: These were served December 1st 2012 during our Lantern Affair event. The Lemon Bars disappeared within minutes. If you didn’t have a chance to try one of these tasty treats during our event, or if you would like to recreate the recipe, now you can!
ORANGE MUFFINS: These were also served during our Lantern Affair event. Try making these delicious orange treats at home!
CORN BREAD : This was made during our scheduled kid’s tour with home made butter!
CORN MUFFINS : This is often served as refreshments at our events.
GRANDMA’S APPLE BREAD PUDDING : A favourite of Mackin House’s vistors and employees! We made this one during Fair in the Square 2010
JUMBO DILLED CORNMEAL MUFFINS : These were made as an activity during our scheduled kid’s tour.
PEROGIES : This was taught at our very first Bridging Generations program.
