One more recipe before I crash but more to come later!

Magic Cookie Bars

1/2 c. butter, soft

1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 c. chocolate chips

1 c. butterscotch chips

1 c. peanut butter chips

1 1/3 c. flaked cocoanut

1 c. chopped pecans (or your choice, cashew or peanuts are good too)

In a 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish, melt margarine in oven.  Sprinkle crumbs over margarine and press into pan.  Pour milk over crust.  Top evenly with remaining ingredients in layers.  Press down and let set for a few hours before cutting into small squares (too rich for large squares)!  Give me a glass of cold milk and I can hardly stop myself from eating the whole pan!!

Miracle Cookies

These are quick and you’ll think what kind of mess have I made but trust me, they’re the quickest peanut butter cookies you’ll ever make and they’re gluten free!!

Miracle Cookies

1 cup Peanut Butter

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons warm water

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine peanut butter and sugar and mix well.  Stir in beaten egg, water and vanilla.
Drop by teaspoon (for small ones) or tablespoon (for large ones) on greased cookie sheet.  Mine looked like little mounds of soft icing and that’s when I was sure I had a mess!   Bake at 350* for no more than 10 minutes (small), 12 minutes (large).  Cool before removing from cookie sheet and place in airtight cookie keeper.  I’ll bet they won’t last long!!  I has about a 1/2 inch between each spoonful before baking.  You should have about an inch between the large ones because they will spread out.  They’re a light thin cookie but soooooo good!

Baking mode

I still am not able to get out and help with the firewood yet or hunt because of my pinched nerve but I was able to bake yesterday!  This probably isn’t good because I’m eating as much as I’m baking and not getting the exercise I need.  Here’s a few of the items that kept me busy.

 

Rollo, pecan, pretzel - so easy!

Rollo, pecan, pretzel – so easy!

This recipe is pretzels, rollo candies, and pecans.   On a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil, cover with pretzels in one layer.  Unwrap the Rollo candies (chocolate and caramel centers) and place one on top of each pretzel.  Place in 350* oven for about three minutes ( candies will get glossy).  DON’T leave in until they melt–mess!!  Take out of oven and press pecan half in center of chocolate and press down.  Cover all with with a pecan half!  Let cool!  I’m not very patient so I place them in the freezer for about five or 10 minutes to let the chocolate set.  YUMMY!!  Salty/sweet, my favorite!
