When I was a child Christmas morning breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, apricot nectar, and butter bright pastries. I didn't care where the food came from, I just knew it was good! When I was a bit older I asked my mother about the pastries. It turns out that she got the recipe from one of my Father's Mother's magazines, "The Farmer's Wife". The pastries have become as much a part of our Christmas celebration as anything else.

When I married, I decided to carry on the tradition. Hopefully, some day my children will carry on making these tasty treats.

The neat part about these pastries is that once you make them, you freeze them wrapped in aluminum foil. Then, on Christmas morning, you just pop them in the oven for 10 minutes. Warm n tasty.

I'm going to tease you with a picture of the pastries I just finished for now. I'll post the recipe tomorrow :)

Thanks for the recipe, Keith. Definitely going to give that one a try. I make Kolaches, which have the filling, but not nearly as much butter!
Do you know what year that article was printed? Just curious.

I'm going to guess that it was printed at some point in the 60s. Initially The Farmer's Wife was it's own magazine. At some point it became a part of Farm Journal. All mom has is the photocopy. Grandma wasn't known for keeping anything around, so it is doubtful it was a magazine more than a few months old at the time.

Some of those old time church group or woman's institute recipe books are the best find, no dud recipes in them.

Here's some of my Christmas Eve Butter Bright Pastries. Thank goodness I had homes for all those rolls because they are too addictive! I distributed mine around to neighbors and family. Thanks Keith.
