    Thanksgiving/Christmas: Stuffing

    One box of Stove Top Turkey flavored stuffing
    boil water & follow directions.

    hehehe, ok! ok! I'm sorry but I could not resist. If you all only understood how little I am actually able to cook considering I'm a full grown adult with two kids ;)

    I shall now leave this thread & not come back since I have nothing to offer :tongue: , lol, but good luck. Hope you all get a lot of really good recipes!

    :) Thanks Tink. I keep saying I'm going to try to make some things from scratch rather than box but just never seem to get around to it. It's one of those things about me I wish I had changed years ago. I'm kind of an old dog to teach new tricks to now ;)

    Well, I don't believe that for a minute. :hug2: If you want to cook in a manner other than you do right now, just dive right in. If you don't, then do as the Urban Peasant said, serve it with a smile and never apologize!!! :yes:

    Some folks love to cook. Some folks love to eat! Some folks don't like to do either. :unsure: (So I'm told). :D

    Take one humbug, add loads of hugs, some spiked egg nog and you've got a right jolly soul! :D

    What sorts of cookies do you like Tinkfan? Herself makes a wicked linzer, and a really nice shortbread. I'm not a huge fan of overly sweet cookies...

    I have Shellyamc's recipe for peanut butter kiss cookies..

    All right then. Since it's you, I'll share my favorite, super-secret cookie recipe with you. It's the only recipe I have so if you don't like them, tell somebody else! :taunt:

    Personally, I love 'em! :thumbsup:

    Uncle Tommy’s patented, high-speed racing, outrageously delicious Reeses Peanut Butter Cookies to die for!​



    • 1⁄2 Cup butter or margarine
    • 1⁄2 Cup creamy Peanut Butter
    • 1⁄2 Cup sugar
    • 1⁄2 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 1⁄4 Cups all-purpose flour
    • 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
    • 40 Reese’s peanut butter cup candies


    Cream butter and peanut butter, beat egg and add all liquid ingredients.
    Add all dry ingredients and mix well.
    Chill dough for at least 1 hour and preferably 24 hours.
    Roll dough into 1-inch balls.
    Bake in miniature muffin tin at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
    Remove from oven and press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie while it’s still warm.
    Let cool before removing from muffin tin.


    Enjoy!​

    I really do have tons of cookie recipes but I'm always on the look out for new ones. I don't have a shortbread cookie recipe that I like (plain shorbread) I have one for a rasberry almond shorbread that is made in a 13 x9 pan that is sinfully rich and best paired with a good cheese and a glass of wine( sliced pear ) it is not overly sweet but very indulgent and seriously easy to make!! :yes: my brothers favorite!!

    You should try them! They are easy to make, but make sure you leave a good bit of time because it makes a TON of cookies! It felt like a spent hours pulling trays out of the oven :lol:

    I love peanut butter! My DW won't let me have it anymore except at "special" times of the year. Birthdays, holidays, etc. I have to cram it in while I can. Post the recipe and they will come. (Oh... wait... that's a different movie)

    Tom :)macwave:... I sure miss a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich!)

    :mickeyboo: Here it is: ! jar of Peant Butter Cookies

    1 cup of softened butter

    1 cup of white sugar

    1 cup of packed brown sugar

    2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk

    2 teaspoons of vanilla

    1 - 18 ounce jar of peanutbutter ( plain or crunchy)

    2 cups of flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 tsp. salt

    you may add 1 cup chopped peanuts if desired.

    In a large bowl, cream butter and both sugars until smooth. Add eggs, yolk, and vanilla and mix well. Stir in peanut butter. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Combine well until mixture holds together.. You may refrigerate the dough at this point. If you have no time to do this, I add a few more tablespoons of flour and bake!!! Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C.) Roll dough in walnut sized pieces and flatten slightly with a fork. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Cookies should look dry on top but don't over bake. Allow to cool on sheet a few minutes before removing
