Halloween 2008

What a Party it was!! The kids loved it and so did the adults. There were hotdogs roasted and marshmallows browned!! I just love marshmallows over a fire. What is any better I ask???? Here are a couple of recipes you might fix for your spooks next Halloween…...

Bloody Punch
1- 2 liter bottle of RC cola
1- 2 liter bottle of Hawaiian Punch
1- Quart of orange sherbet

Pour cola and punch into punch bowl and mix well. Add sherbet then serve. It is sooo good! It is best to have the cola and punch cool but not cold. This way the sherbet melts better.

The Best Sugar Cookies You Have Ever Had!!!

I love iced sugar cookies. I repeat, I love iced sugar cookies. That is if they are iced with butter cream icing. I am not crazy about royal icing, it can make cookies look cool but I am not sure they taste that good???? I forgot to take pictures of these so you will have to wait for that. I make them quite often so it will not be long.

The Best Sugar Cookies you will ever eat!!!!

4 cup all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 cup butter or 2 sticks
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla

Sift dry ingredients together. Cream room temperature butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla to creamed butter and sugar. Add flour a cup at a time. Once all flour is mixed in divide dough into 2 balls and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in fridge for at least 1 hour. Roll out to 1/2 thickness and cut into shapes. Bake at 325' until golden brown. Ice with butter cream or royal icing. I prefer butter cream...

Now get your spooks off the walls and have a good night. Our son is playing guitar like a wild man...sugar rush I assume....
