Doodle Wopps!

Doodle Wopps!

Elizabeth and I decided to try some recipe that we saw a while ago. I got the recipe from Sis. Foster...the amazing women my companion and I stayed with in my last area. She sent me two cook books that she had made for our wedding. So, Doodle Wopps was a fun name and it looked good. So, with some of our left over ham we tried it out! It was really good and was very easy clean up. You can see pictures by clicking here.


Moon Pie!

Moon Pie!

Well, now that Fast Sunday is over, I would like to show you what I made for a birthday party on my other side of the family. I made Moon Pie. It was pretty good, not as good as when my mother makes it, but it was still good.
I am seeing a trend. I make (and post) all of my desserts and John makes (and posts) all of his great looking food. I'm thinking of getting together and having a feast. Maybe at Provo Canyon? We could play frisbee there and roast some marshmellows. John and I could provide the food, others can provide the fun. I don't know if you have time, but I think I would enjoy that. Think on it, while you read what is in this baby:
Moon Pie
In a heavy sauce pan stir together and cook on med. high until it thickens and forms into a ball:
1 C. water
1 cube margarine
1 C. flour
Cool for a few minutes, then beat in 4 eggs.
Spread on cookie sheet and cook at 425 for 20-25 min. until golden brown. Cool.
Topping 1: 8 oz. cream cheese (softened and whipped)
2 small instant vanilla pudding
4 C. milk
Topping 2: 1 large Cool Whip (16 oz.)
Drizzle Hershey's chocolate syrup over the whole thing (diagonally one way and then the other) and refrigerate.
Have a great week!

Mike's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mike's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 Cups - White Sugar
1 1/2 Cups - Brown Sugar (Packed)
2 Cubes - Butter/Margarine
3 eggs - (Chicken) Ü
1 Cup - Shortening
1 Tablespoon - Vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons - Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoons - Salt
5 Cups - Flour
1 (12 oz.) bag - MILK Chocolate Chips
Mix in that order. In order to make the PERFECT cookies, you MUST use MILK chocholate chips. Others may try to turn you to the Dark-Side using their "firery (semi-sweet) darts". If you fall into the temptation, you will only have a semi-perfect cookie (which is a bad thing). Anyway...back to the PERFECT cookies. Roll cookie dough into balls, with your hands (this makes them perfectly round when cooking). Place the balls on an UNgreased cookie sheet (they already have enough butter and shortening in it). Bake for 8-10 min. at 375˚. Pull them out and wait for the cookies to set. Then you may go ahead and place them on a cooling rack... or just eat them before the kids come home from school. Ü
