Soft Drop Sugar Cookies

We tried these when we were home for Christmas, they are to die for. They are so good. I especially love the frosting on them. I hope you like them as much as I do. Thanks Becca, for sharing this recipe with Susan.

2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix till creamy.
In a separate bowl mix:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 cup flour
Gradually mix dry ingredients into butter mix, alternating with a 15 oz. carton of ricotta cheese. Bake 350 for 12 minutes..don't overbake. Cool and frost. Enjoy!

1/3 of 8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
mix well, adding 3-4 cups powdered sugar to preferred likeness.

IHOP Pancakes

A dear friend I had in Utah (she now lives in Washington) gave me this recipe. I've had it for a long time, but hadn't actually made it. I made it once and it is a family favorite now. We make it often. Once you have these, you'll never go back to bisquick.

1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 heaping tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt

In a blender or mixer, combine all the ingredients until smooth. Spoon onto a preheated pan (be sure to spray with pam before). Spoon enough to make a 5 inch circle. Flip the pancake when the edges appear to harden and the center is bubbly. Makes 8-10 pancakes.

I usually double this and we have a few extras. They're just as good warmed up in the microwave the next day.

Art Smocks

So today Averi was home from school because she has Strep Throat, Briggs was at school, and maggie was taking a nap. She said that she wanted to do something fun, because all we do is nothing. I remember seeing this cute little art smock made out of a pillow case. We made them this morning and it was a lot of fun. I just thought I would give you the address which is because it may take me awhile to get the pictures back. I just used white pillow cases and we did orange, yellow and green buttons on Briggs. Averi wanted hers to be red and white. The only thing that we did different was to put a ribbon on the top of the pocket. We sewed it on before we turned it up. They turned out really cute.

Conference Casserole

I made this casserole for Maggie's blessing and now we are going to make it for Young Womens this week. They will come on Wednesday, make them and freeze them. I have never frozen them before. I hope it works okay. Then bake them for their families on Saturday or Sunday morning. I think they are really good. They do not have soggy bread in them. I made a couple of them and some I made with ham and the others I made with Jimmy Dean Maple sausage. So if you have a big group coming over make one of each.

8 frozen shredded hashbrown patties (my mother in law just used hashbrowns and it worked good)
4c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1 lb. cooked ham cubed or 1 lb. of jimmy dean maple sausage (cook before adding to casserole)
7 eggs
1c. milk
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt

Arrange hashbrown patties in a singel alyer in a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with cheese and ham or cooked sausage; set aside. Blend together eggs, milk, mustard adn salt in a bowl; pour over ham. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes. Makes 8-10 servings.
