Chicory Amplifies FlavorWhen is a pound like more than a pound? When it's a pound of coffee with chicory. Housewives fighting inflationary food prices, take note the bit of chicory blended in some brands of coffee acts as a flavor amplifier. It does such a good job of bringing out the rich, full body of coffee, that you can use a smaller measure - and from each pound or jar of coffee with chicory, get many more extra cups - at a considerable saving.

RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
EASY-DO SWEET DOUGH, American
I found a sheet of paper, yellowed with age and stained with flour and butter splotches, and realized that is was a recipe sheet from my 7th grade home economics course that has somehow managed to survive all these years. I guess I folded it and stuck it in some cook book that wasn't used very often. My mother gave me a stack of her old cook books and there it was! If I remember correctly, these were very good recipes, so I am happy to have them back! I just wish I could remember the name of my Home Ec. teacher!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Measure water into large mixer bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water. Add dry milk,
sugar, oil, egg, salt and about 1
TO BAKE SAME DAY: After shaping, cover, let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Bake as directed.
TO REFRIGERATE: Place shaped dough in plastic bags, allowing enough room for bread to rise. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator. Bake immediately.
TO FREEZE: Shape dough as desired. Let rise about 1 hour. Cover pans tightly. Store in freezer until ready to use. Place frozen dough in cold oven. Turn on and bake as directed.
Pan Rolls: Pat dough into a well-greased 8-inch square pan. Spread with soft butter. Using a blunt knife, cut into squares, cutting almost through dough. Let rise. Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan and break apart. (Makes 32 rolls.)
Cloverleaf Rolls: Divide dough into 20 pieces. Roll quickly into balls and place in greased muffin pans. Brush each with very soft butter. Using a blunt knife or scissors, cut each in half or thirds to resemble a cloverleaf. Bake at 375° for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot. (Makes 20 rolls.)
Parkerhouse Rolls: Roll out dough on floured surface to a 20 x 8 inch rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise making two 20 x 4 inch strips. Spread lengthwise half of each strip with 1 tablespoon butter. With knife handle, crease each strip lengthwise, slightly off center on unbuttered side. Fold along crease. Gently pull and shape each strip to 24 inches. Cut into twelve 2-inch or eight 3-inch slices. Place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise. Bake at 375° for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot. (Makes 16 to 24 rolls.)
Knots: Divide dough into thirds. Divide each third into 6 pieces (making 18). Roll and pull each piece into a 6-inch strip. Form a loop and ease one end of strip through loop to shape a knot. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Let rise. Bake at 375° for 12 to 15 minutes. (Makes 18 rolls.)
