Rosie's been a busy little baker today. I've actually made four different goodies. My first - Peanut Butter Coconut Bars.
Here are the ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened 1 cup sugar 1 cup smooth peanut butter 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cups flour 2 cups coconut 1/2 cup chopped, toasted peanuts
The ingredients: 1/2 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup Crisco 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon lemon juice 2 cups all purpose flour 1/2 cup chopped pecans sifted powdered sugar
Here are my Heavenly Delights. They're so very light and simply melt in your mouth. Number 3 for today: Magic Cookie Bars
My ingredients: 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (That would be one package out of the box.) 1 can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup coconut 1 cup chopped pecans
Ingredients list: 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 1/2 cups flour 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans powdered sugar Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly spray baking sheets, then drop dough onto the sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let stand for about 2 minutes before removing from pan.
And here are my little powdered sugar-dusted Praline Cookies. Delicious little nuggets. I enlisted Mr. Hawthorne's help today in cutting the two butter cookie-based confections I made yesterday.
Here are the Brownie Squares. It has the basic butter cookie dough on the bottom and a chocolate brownie layer on top, which, if you recall, I almost screwed up, but then saved it at the last minute.
And these are the Caramel Pecan Cookies, with the basic butter cookie dough on the bottom and outrageously wonderful caramel on top.
Magic Cookie Bars on left, next Caramel Pecan Cookies, Brownie Squares, and Praline Cookies, bottom right. I got a lot done today. And I seem to be catching up in terms of my schedule. By the way, in case you're wondering what I do with all these cookies until Christmas delivery, I put them all in freezer bags and they go into the freezer downstairs in my utility room. Off to bed, then another day of baking tomorrow. Plus we bought our Christmas tree today, so there's gonna be some decorating going on as well.
