Don't flip out because I have posted twice today.
It couldn't be because I am stuck at home with barfing kids to keep me company...nooooo...
I thought I would post a recipe.
1- because I wanted to prove that I do, indeed cook on occasion and
2- because this is my own recipe, I adapted it from one I found, and it ended up being pretty good with my tweaking. I just entered it into a contest, and if I win I get $500.00.
Thats got to be enough to pay for the broken drivers' side mirror on the suburban. Yes?
I am sure the fame of winning the contest, and the chef hat tiara will suffice for wasting my hard-earned cash on a stupid mirror. (Notice I think I have already won)
(Incidentally, I just ran spell-check, and it said "No miss-spellings found."--GO ME!!)
1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ c. sugar
2 (0.15 oz) packages dry unsweetened lemonade mix (Kool-aid etc.)
1 tsp vanilla
finely grated zest from one large lemon
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 c. flour
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
Heat the over to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and lemonade mix until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix until smooth. Stir the baking soda into the flour, and add to mixture. Beat until completely combined.
Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in granulated sugar, and place on greased cookie sheet. Press thumb into center of cookie to slightly flatten.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350. Cool before moving to a rack. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
Enjoy, without fear, this is NOT what made the kids sick.
