Longenecker Lumps

Falling Creek Longenecker Lumps


  • Box of Bisquick or dry biscuit mix
  • Liter of cooking oil
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon

1. Put Bisquick mix in a mixing bowl, being sure to leave some in the box. You may need to add more mix later to keep the dough from becoming sticky.

2. Add water to the dry mix and mix it around until you have a big lump of dough in the bowl. It should be a perfect consistency, not too dry and not too wet.

3. Pinch some of the dough off into a perfect-sized “lump”. Roll each lump around in-between your palms until it is perfectly round. If you make it too large, the inside will not cook and be doughy.

4. With a parent, heat up the oil in a cooking pot. Using a slotted spoon, dip a “test lump” in the hot oil and gently roll it around to see if it is hot enough. Do not drop the lump into the oil! This may cause the hot oil to splash out of the pot and burn you. If the oil is hot enough, the lump will float on top, and if the oil is not hot enough, the lump will sink to the bottom.

5. You can cook multiple lumps at one time. Once the lumps are right in color, remove it with the spoon, allowing the oil to drain back into the cooking pot.

6. Roll them around in the cinnamon/sugar, allow to cool, and then enjoy!

Hot Apple Cider


  • 4-5 cups apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • 1 apple cut into slices

1. In a small pot heat the apple juice, and spices over low/medium heat.

2. Stir often while the mixture is heating so the spices will blend into the juice (you don’t want any spice clumps).

3. Once it’s hot, pour into two mugs and garnish with an apple slices and a cinnamon stick. Serve warm.


Falling Creek S'mores


  • Honey Graham Crackers (box)
  • Semisweet chocolate (bar or minis)
  • Bag of marshmallows

1. Have a parent help you with setting up a campfire or preheat a grill to medium-high.

2. Top a honey graham-cracker square with a 1/2-to-1-ounce square of semisweet chocolate.

3. Place on the edge of the grill or fire, away from the direct heat, to melt the chocolate.

4. Meanwhile, skewer a jumbo marshmallow and hold over the heat or flame, turning, until soft and toasted.

5. Put the marshmallow on top of the chocolate, cover with another graham and gently press together as you slide off the skewer.
