This week we hop on over to the small community of Floyd, AR in White County.
Floyd was started by a man named Levi Ricker. In 1820 he received a patent for 160 acres of land for his military service in the War of 1812. Lots of stories and legends surround the house that Levi first built. That’s a whole other story though.
Early businesses in Floyd included, a horse powered Cotten gin, grist mill, market for trading and fur trading. A school was started in 1856.
From what I’ve gathered, Floyd started as a small community and remains a small close knit community. While there have always been larger towns down the road, Floyd has remained small and they like it that way❤️
This time around I’m using the cookbook, “Sharing Recipes: A Book Of Favorite Recipes Compiled By The Ladies Auxiliary of The Floyd Volunteer Fire Department Floyd, Arkansas”. I found a recipe for a pie I had never tried before and it also sounded easy. My two faves🥰
This recipe for Rocky Mountain Pie is pretty straight forward. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect! It reminds me of a chocolate chip cookie…in pie form🤔. Anyway, you should totally try it! I paired it with vanilla ice cream. Yessssss!
I also have a feeling I’ll be sharing more from this cookbook soon. I just got it and it’s fabulous😍😍
