The Elusive Recipe                      By Ronda P.

       The recent gift of a church cookbook to our church library by Wilda H. brought
back many fond memories of a recipe that I had a very difficult time tracking down. It
was in the early 1970’s that I was invited to an annual holiday party at which the most
tender melt in your mouth Parker house Rolls were served. They were tiny and because
of the shape you could make small sandwiches with the little pieces of ham and beef
plus condiments that were served. I discovered that the caterer was none other than a
Portville lady that many of you may pleasantly remember – Thelma Gayton.
       It was while Thelma worked as a cook for the Donald Dusenbury family in the
1930’s that she honed her culinary skills and was later able to start her own catering
business. For many years Thelma catered many parties, weddings, christenings etc.
throughout the Olean-Portville area.
       Getting back to the holiday party I mentioned, I decided I just had to have the rec-
ipe for those rolls. When asked, Thelma replied that the recipe was in the Presbyterian
Cookbook. I checked all the Presbyterian Cookbooks I owned, As Portville Presbyterians
Cook, 1954 by the Women’s Christian Council and an undated later publication, Cooking
Favorites of Portville by the same group. I went over and over the cookbooks. No recipe
that seemed anything like the one I was searching for. Had I overlooked it? I didn’t
know of any other cookbook published by our church.
        A few years went by and then one day my Mother-in-law, Christel Pollock, was
showing me some of her cookbooks. Here was a hard bound Portville Presbyterian
cookbook I had no idea existed. Forty Years of Famous Foods compiled and edited by
The Busy Bee Organization of the First Presbyterian Church of Portville, NY, 1940,
printed by the Olean Times Herald. I quickly search the yeast breads recipes and there it
was on page 12! I couldn’t wait to try it. It is such great dough and can be used suc-
cessfully for stickie buns as well as the rolls. I think it’s the real mashed potatoes that
are the important ingredient so you shouldn’t substitute potato flakes.
       Since I can no longer eat wheat, I have adapted the recipe using gluten-free flours
And when I am feeling very generous I make the original recipe for the family and dream
about the way things used to taste.
       Our appreciation to Wilda for making this cookbook available to all our church
family.
