These cupcakes are absolutely darling. I found the recipe in a cupcake cookbook a couple of years ago. They are perfect for little girl birthday parties (and even older girl birthday parties as my adult friends also love them!). They are tangy and sweet and not too dense. I often make bite-size ones in my mini cupcake pan. Reduce the baking time if making minis or they will dry out.
These cookies are called several names but our family always called them Easter Cookies, because that's when my Grandmother made them, and the name stuck. Prep time also includes forming the dough into desired shapes. Amount of cookies will vary depending on their size.
From today's Thursday magazine, this recipe was submitted by Melanie Pereira and she won R.O. 20 for it. It's sooo tempting in the pic that accompanies it, makes you want to leave all your work and make it NOW! :)
Coloured sugar, sprinkles, grated coconut or crushed candy canes may be sprinkled on right after dipping into the chocolate, have fun and use your imagination to decorate the coated pretzels, it's a fun holiday project for children of all ages! :)
Photos now posted! I created this fun treat for a children's Christmas party for first graders. It was a huge hit with kids and parents alike. In the end, the teacher asked to keep the rest for the teacher's lounge. This looks complicated, but it is so easy! This recipe results in a wintry scene with "snow," an igloo, icy water and even a polar bear mother and cub! This dessert works for all kinds of winter get-togethers. Note: prep time was approximated because this was my original creation. You might go much faster. I followed recipe #96111 for the crisped rice ingredients and cooking.
This drink was in a Family Fun magazine a few years ago. When poured carefully, this makes a red, white and blue drink for any star-spangled occasion. It separates by using the drink with the highest sugar content on the bottom, and the least on top.
This is how my Granny made sweet tea and it is some kind of sweet. Know that and beware. Pa-Paw used to down 2-3 glasses after working in the garden all day. Back off the sugar if you can't handle it. This one is for true southerners only ;)
