You Can Give a Mam Accent to Potatoes By GAYNOR MADDOX JTEA Food and Markets Editor •low and easy cooking is the Mcret to making wonderful scalloped potatoes, according to Binks Gardner of Presque Isle, Me. Former secretary of agriculture for that state, he knows a thing or two •boat potatoes. Says 1955 was one of the biggest crops on record. Production of Russets has increased from 10 acres to 25,000 acres in five years. Those are the long ones. Thts year, he adds, all shipments are. graded and regulated to give both restaurants and homemakers the size potatoes they like best. Maine "Chef specials" are from I to 4 inches hi diameter. Women teem to like their potatoes smaller for home use, those ranging from 1Y 4 to 3!£ inches in diameter, washed and packed in 5, 10, 15, 50 «d 100-pound packages. Maine Scalloped Potatoes (Serves 6) Star medium potatoes, 3 medium onions, 5 tablespoons flour, 1% teaspoons salt, Yt teaspoon pepper, 9 tablespoons butter or margarine, 1% to 2 cups milk.

Hormy-Typ« Cookies Go Over Big By CECILY BROWNSTONE Ai«oelat«4 frees Food Editor. THESE NEW COOKIES, sampled by a couple of dozen tasters, go top rating. Everyone who ate them asked when tney were going to be baked again. And we had young find old among our testers. Just what makes them so popular? Molasses, sugar and spice contribute tempting flavor. And the texture is both crisp and chewy — rolled oats helping out here. We found that stored in a tightly covered tin container, these cookies held up well. But chances are Uiey'll be eaten before you have time to find out. Youngsters will, go for them with a glass of milk; older folk will enojy them with tea or coffee. Please do try them; It's a long time since we have come on a cookie that was such an all-round favorite.'We can't promise when we'll find an oatmeal-and-molasses cookie to equal them! You'll like the easy method of mixing these cookies — all the ingredients are beaten together in jut bowl. CRISP-AND-CHEWTES Ingredients: 1'i cups sifted flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, y 2 teaspoon salt, '/a teaspoon ground cloves, Vi teaspoon ground ginger, 1 cup sugar, % cup butter or margarine (soft), 1 egg, Vt cup dark molasses, % cup uncooked rolled oats (quick variety). Method: Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cloves, ginger and sugar into a mixing bowl. Add soft shortening, egg and molasses. Beat until smooth — about 2 minutes. Lightly stir in rolled'oats. Use a level tablespoon of the dough for each cookie; drop 2 inches apart (to allow for spreading) on un- greased baking sheets. Bake in moderate (375 degrees) oven 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overtake. Allow to stand on cookie, sheets a minute or so to get firm before removing with a wide spatula. Cool on rack. When cold, store in tightly covered tin container. Makes about dozen cookies. FEEDING THOSE YOUNGSTERS Cookies aren't the only food that appeals to all ages. We were glad to see this fact stressed in the re- I cently published "Feeding Your Baby and Child" b y Benjamin Spock, M.D., and Miriam E. Lowenberg, Ph.D. (Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York; Little, Brown and Company. Boston). As proof of it, Dr. Lowenberg includes whole- family recipes a mother can try when a youngster has gone through the baby-food stage. The advantage of this system are obvious: when both Father and Toddler can eat Indian Pudding, Beef Stew or Salmon Loaf, meal-getting is simplified. Dr. Speck's collaboration with Dr. Lowenberg, an eminent dietician who has had many years of experience in planning food for children in nursery schools, is a happy one. But recipes are only part of this book. All the details of feeding a child during infancy are gone into. Children's diet during illness is considered, and so are party menus. There is plenty of guidance for mothers of preschool children—and the advic* r*fl«cW the common sens* for wfaloh Dr. *pook is well known.
