    My favorite is Cow Pattie Cookies.....

    I thank Irene for them!!!!

    Cow Pattie Cookies

    2 C. melted butter ........ 2 C. oatmeal
    2 C. white sugar ........ 2 C. corn flakes
    1 C. brown sugar ........ 2 tsp vanilla
    4 eggs

    4 C. flour .................... 12 oz. chocolate chips
    2 tsp baking powder ...... 2 cups nuts, chopped
    2 tsp soda ................... 1 C. of coconut


    1. Blend together melted butter, white sugar, brown sugar and 4 eggs.
    2. Add oatmeal, corn flakes and vanilla,
    3. Sift together flour, Baking powder and soda
    4. Blend together and add to mix.
    5. Add chocolate chips and pecans or walnuts and coconut,
    6. Drop by teas. on greased cookie sheets.
    7. Bake at 350 for 15 mins to 18 mins.

    Cookies will be soft.

    ----------------------------------

    for my oven I need 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes but YMMV

    this also makes a "double batch" as I can get around 14ish DOZEN cookies!!!
    this is necessary otherwise your family will eat them all gone before you know it!!! (it came to me this size....I havent figured out how to reduce it based on the choc. chips --which would be 1/2 a bag but it would half perfectly---but who would want to???????)

    My next favorite would be

    Bacon-Wrapped Little Smokies

    this "recipe" isnt very precise :shrug: sorry

    wrap about 1/3 to 1/2 strip of bacon around a Lil' Smokie and secure with a toothpick....place on a LIPPED cookie sheet (a casserole dish works okay too)

    once all of the smokies are wrapped sprinkle brown sugar over top

    bake at around 350 (I never pay attention to the actual degrees---somewhere between 325 and 400)

    remove from oven around the time you start smelling them :) Okay okay not very conventional but this is when i usually check them and the bacon is nearly done or already done....the sugar has melted.....

    let cool slightly before eating...... you dont wanna burn your mouth!!!!

    Fudge and nut loaf, frosty fruit bars. But my gramma's not here to make that anymore, so I guess I'll carry on that tradition.

    I love those little wedding cake cookies and a cup of hot chocolate. Although those cow patty cookies sound pretty good too!

    I'm just waiting for the go-ahead from my Mom. :D I sent her an email and am waiting for a reply. She probably copied the recipe off the back of a box of Bisquick (Mom was never much of a cook...) and couldn't care less if I shared it, but I just want to be sure. Hmm, on second thought, my aunt from Germany may have given it to her. In any case, I'll share it as soon as I get the green light.

    Hm... My favorite winter treat is how sharp and bright the stars are at night, and the woodsmoke in the air.

    Everything foodwise, I'll fix and eat any time of year as the spirit moves me. ;)

    I guess I would have to say that my favorite winter treat is a paid snow day, although Cheryl's molasses cookies are mighty tasty. Cheryl was a co-worker that made and gave them out as Christmas treats.
