i <3 lord of the rings, annnnnd i felt like making me some lembas. my family thinks they're scones, but i will make them see the light. the light of the elves. there are many recipes floating around 'teh interweb' but i've personally tested this one, and its rather addictive Grin

2.5 cups of flower
1 tablespoon (yes tablespoon) baking POWDER
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick'o'butter (8 tablespoons) softened but not melted
1/3 cup'o'sugar
1/2 teaspoon'o'cinnamon
2/3 cup milk/cream/bailey's irish (i use all three, sometimes together, unfortunately, more than a third of bailey's is too much for my taste)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

(1) preheat over to 425 degrees.

(2) Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl

(3) cut the butter in with a fork or pastry tool until its evenly mixed, kind of a grainy mixture

(4) mix in the sugar and cinnomin

(5) add milk and vanilla and mix it together until its a big glob of dough, if its too hard to stir, add some milk

divide into balls and mash them onto a cookie sheet (i use parchment paper, because im an elitist and i hate to wash the cookie sheets....and because i get angry and fling things when the cookies stick  Angry )
they should be about 1/2 an inch thick

Makes 12 or more, depending on how big you want them, but too big and they fall apart though.

Cook for 12 minutes, or until the edges are brown. if they look really thick to you, you might want to toothpick test the middles to make sure they're not gooey.

IF you have mallorn leaves, wrap up your lembas in them and they will never go stale.
however, in 99.9% of the world, mallorn leaves are scarce sooo wrap them in clingwrap or but them in some tupperware and they should last about a week. happy munching!

oh! they are delicious with jam or honey, but very tastey plain as well.

Edit: Okay, 12 minutes it is. Will try this in one out tomorrow for sure.

That sounds pretty great! There was a recipe for Lembas (and Bag End Seed Cake) in the local paper awhile back, but it called for all sorts of weird stuff. I'll try it out soon and let you know.

Personal swaps are fun!

Fun websites to give for free: thehungersite.com, freerice.com, care2.com

It always makes me feel warm in fuzzy inside when I read something from a LotR fanatic like myself. I will have to make these. Do they fill you up in a bite  Huh?

This sounds sooooo good! I'm gonna try this! I too am an elitist, but I'm not sure I count because I buy parchment paper by the pound!  Grin


Guess who's back?

i saw this recipe earlier today, and thought i'd try making them. well, i realized after mixing some stuff together that i didnt have enough butter. Undecided so, i used 'i can't believe it's not butter'. that stuff lives up to it's name. everything came out really good.
great recipe!

Aah, I love LOTR!  It seems every single lembas recipe I've seen varies greatly from the next though, hmm.

Lembas bread. that's awesome.
I had a LOTR costume party for my birthday one year and took sugar cookie dough that comes in cans and molded it into squares, baked it, then wrapped it in green, leave-shaped tissue paper. It was awesome, and everyone got the joke.

Excellent. Will definitely have to try this out. I see a new snack coming to the table on D&D nights.

I made these, and my whole family loved them =)

They didn't get the whole lembas bread thing though, unforutnately. *sigh* some people just don't understand us...
