  1. Wow!! I love these. Very nice flavor, kinda crispy, kinda chewy at the same time. 12 minutes of baking is perfect. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.

As with everyone here, I love to cook. I love to collect cookbooks from all eras and types of food. My favorite is a set of books from the 60's called the Encyclopedia of Cookery, by Woman's Day. I hope to get a bunch of those recipe's posted here for all of you. I also love to use my crockpot! So much, that I had to go buy another one. I am a songle mom, so my biggest challenge is cooking smaller portions for me and my 4yr. old, Nicholas. He is my biggest fan and I him! I work for H-E-B as a Wine Manager. I love wine! So this job is perfect for me, I get to help people choose wine and sample it out all day. Which lets me try new wine all the time! I hope all of you enjoy my recipes and maybe one will become a new favorite for you!
