Pops and I are in the midst of Amish country. It is always interesting to catch a glimpse of a different lifestyle. I love the good cooking of Amish women. It is filling and hearty and simply delicious. Here are a couple of my favorite Amish dishes.
Amish recipes
Cabbage Casserole
Amish Cabbage Casserole 
is a simple hearty dish that will fill any appetite. Made with fresh cabbage, every bite brings the comfort of home. Amish cooking is always perfect for a simple yet delicious dish.
1 medium green cabbage, cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
 Combine cabbage wedges and water in a large saucepan; cover and cook over medium heat 15 minutes. Drain well, and place cabbage wedges in a 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish.
 Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook over low heat 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in the salt and pepper. Pour mixture over cabbage, and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. 
 Combine cheese, mayonnaise, chili sauce, onion, and green bell pepper; stir well, and spread over cabbage. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Shoo Fly Pie 
There isn't anything more classic than Shoo Fly Pie recipe. You'll adore this recipe and be sure to add it to your collection of easy pie recipes.
Cooking Time: 50 min
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup dark molasses
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell in a well-greased pie plate
Thoroughly combine boiling water, molasses, corn syrup, egg and baking soda. Let stand about 15 minutes. 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
 In a medium bowl, combine next 6 ingredients and stir with fork until crumbly. 
 Stir half the crumbs into molasses mixture. Spoon into pie shell. Cover with remaining crumbs. 
 Bake 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees F. 

Amish Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons shortening
1 cup buttermilk
Combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix in the shortening until the mixture is crumbly. Add the buttermilk and mix just until combined. The dough will be sticky. Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut about 10 biscuits, rerolling the dough as needed. Place biscuit on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
