Sugar Cookies-Roxanne Nelson

1 C Sugar
1 t vanilla
1 egg
1/2 c sour cream
1/2 cube butter
3 1/2 c flour
1 t soda
1/2 t salt

Spoon and roll in hand

bake 350 for 8-10 min


1 cube butter
1 lb powder sugar
1/2 c shortening
dash salt
1 t vanilla
3 T milk or water

I also add red food coloring to make it pink

These taste like the HUGE Grandmas pink sugar cookies you can buy in the store. (But of course if you make them at home they are fat free--right?)

Chocolate Toffee Cake - Stephanie Higbee

1 German Chocolate Cake (with eggs, oil and water as directed)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar caramel ice cream topping

1 small container Cool Whip

5 Skor or Heath candybars

Bake the cake as directed in a 9 x 13" pan. Cool slightly, then poke holes in the cake with a large fork or end of a spoon. Pour the sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping over the warm cake. Let cool completely. Crush the candy bars into small pieces and stir into the Cool Whip. Spread over cake. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. It's best the next day when the milk and caramel have soaked into the cake.

2 tsp. curry powder
1 Tbs. butter or margarine
1 1/4 lbs. (5 medium-sized) potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cups milk
2 cups water

1/4 tsp. pepper

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, saute onion and curry in butter for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add potatoes, milk, water, chicken bouillon. Over high heat, bring to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Spoon mixture into blender. Be sure to put the lid on! Puree in batches till soup is smooth. Return soup to saucepan. Stir in spinach, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, until spinach wilts. Serve with dry (white) toast.

I was actually looking for a dessert recipe, but did not find the one I wanted to send in. So my apologies for sending a main dish one instead. I'll keep looking, and if I find it, I will send it.
