having grown up in what we once called our area "PA Dutch" country i was wondering if the following snacks were enjoyed elsewhere.
a.a piece of bread slobbered up with butter and covered with molasses. (now called "table syrup")
b.a piece of bread covered with cottage cheese and then covered with table syrup.
c. a piece of bread covered with cottage cheese and then covered with applebutter.(schmeercase und ludvarrick, local pronounciation)

real soppin surp with any kinda bread is still a treat.

cinnamon butter sugar bisquits

bisquits and soppin surp with some real cow salve butter rolled in. If the butter is cold it'll stay in chunks when ye fork smash it in the surp.

Mama would take bisquit dough and roll it out to about 1/4-3/8" thick about the size of a big man's hand, then put 2-3 spoons of reconstituted dried peaches, or apples, or apple sauce with cinnamon and fold it back closed and finger mash the edges to seal it and bake them real light brown. They was shonuff good with real cow salve butter rubbed on both sides.

She called them a *fruit fritter*. Nobody in the family makes any rhubarb fritters anymore. She musta took the recipe with her.

There aint nuthin no better than anybody's Mama's cooking, and ye cant go home again.

I grew up in Amsterdam - Holland and I never had something like that. If it's Dutch, Holland forgot about it...
Sounds good though! I'd like to try the schmeercase und ludvarrick. Funny, those words..
In Dutch it would be "smeerkaas en appelstroop"

White bread with butter and molases, corn bread with butter and molases, biscuts with butter and molases. Take your pick they could be hot or the could be cold and three days old. Any of the above combinations but have not had cottage cheese with apple butter but it sounds worth a try.

Up here, a hot biscuit covered with butter and 'lasses is to die for.

yep, it's bread slobbered up with applesauce or apple butter, what ever is the first thing grabbed out of the pantry.

Unless you are my nephews who love a mustard & white sugar s'wich
