Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is located near Harrodsburg,Ky.With over 3,000 acres, it is the largest restored Shaker Community in the United States. Visitors at Pleasant Hill can enjoy a variety of tours to take in Shaker history.There are demonstrations in woodworking,broom making, spinning and weaving.
There are overnight accomodations in rooms where Shakers once slept.Each room is furnished with reproduction Shaker furniture and textiles. The Trustees' Office Inn has a wonderful restaurant that will make you "kindly welcome" with their delicious recipes. My favorite is Shaker Lemon Pie:
2 LARGE LEMONS
4 EGGS,WELL BEATEN
2 C SUGAR
Slice lemons as thin as paper,rind and all.Combine with sugar;mix well.Let stand for 2 hours or overnight,blending occasionally.Add beaten eggs to lemon mixture;mix well.Turn into a 9 inch pie shell,arranging lemon slices evenly.Cover with top crust.Cut several slits in top.Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.Reduce heat to 375 and bake for 20 minutes or until silver knife inserted comes out clean.Cool before serving.
