OOPS sorry about my writing above its still before 9 am I think I need coffee!

I have some too on Dec 03, 2011 @ 12:29 pm

But I can't stay today, I have to go out right now. I'll post some either tomorrow, or Monday. Oh Bren, that cooking contest we were talking about has a web site you can go to and they give you all the recipe's for what was made on the show, not just the winner's. I think you can find a link to it if you go on the Super Store web site. If you can't find it let me know and I'll look it up and post it for you when I can get back on. Thanks for sharing and for starting this page! Have a great day all.

I should find one.

I make these every year on Dec 06, 2011 @ 11:38 am

There not cookies, but they are really good.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts.

2/19oz cans of water chestnuts

1 lb bacon

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup ketchup

1 tbsp soy sauce

round wooden tooth picks

Rinse chestnuts with water and drain well. Cut bacon in half and wrap
each nut with half slice of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Place
nuts into a 13"x9" Pyrex pan and bake for 20 to 30 minutes in a 350 F
oven. If you like your bacon cooked more cook until its to your liking.
Mix remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring.
When nuts are cooked remove from pan and place onto a paper towel to
drain off more of the fat. Either use a clean Pyrex dish of the same
size, or clean the first one, then place nut back into that pan. Pour
the sauce over each nut as best you can and bake for another 30 minutes
in same temp oven. Carefully remove nuts from the Pyrex dish, place on a
serving dish and enjoy.

Cookis Skates on Dec 06, 2011 @ 12:05 pm

These are fun for the kids to bring to school and hand out for Xmas.

Cookie Skates

Cookie ingredients

1/2 (18 oz) roll of Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Frosting1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup butter, softened

4 to 6 tsp lemon juice

green food coloring

30 small candy canes

Break up cookie dough into a large bowl. Add flour: mix with hands until
well blended. Shape dough into 10-inch log; wrap in plastic wrap and
freeze for 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 F. Remove dough from freezer, flatten dough down center
with handle of wooden spoon. To form boot shape, with fingers flatten
one side of log until its about 3/4 inch thick to form toe part of the
boot. Cut log into 3/8 inch think slices; place on ungreased cookie
sheet. Flatten slightly with fingers. Bake at 350 F for 8 to 11 minutes
or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie
sheet. Cool cookies for 15 minutes, or until cool enough to frost.

In small bowl, combine powdered sugar, butter, and enough lemon juice
for desired spreading consistency, blend until smooth. Reserve 1/3 of
the frosting in another bowl and add green food coloring, blend that in
well. Place green frosting in resealable food storage bag and cut off a
small corner of the bag.Frost each cookie with the white frosting and
place a small amount of frosting along the bottom of each cookie. Attach
one candy cane to each skate shaped cookie to form the skate blades,
breaking off portion of tip of the curved end, if necessary. With green
frosting pipe laces and bows on each skate.

This should make 30 Cookies Skates
