Spritz Cookies II
This is my first time using a cookie press. my cookie press is the cheapest electric press you could find and I still did great with this dough; the consistency is perfect for the cookie press. do not need refrigerating, maybe if you handle the dough too much. About the flavor I found it a little bit bland so I double the vainilla and also made a second batch with 2 tsp almond flavor. and put a whole cup of sugar instead of 2/3, I also used coloring for the cookies and turn out great! cooking time was more 6 mins than 7-10. I will be including these in my Christmas cookie tin cans gifts.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
This recipe was great for my small family, with enough leftover for a couple of days but not too much. a Super timesaver for busy moms or even dads. The meat was moist and it can be sliced or shread. A little to salty for my taste, so I will be using a rub of butter salt and garlic next time. Hint: my turkey breast did not take 8 hours to cook, more like six or five and a half. so please do check your turkey if you do not like it overdone. If you can not slice it maybe you overcooked it. But it is still great shreaded. Thanks for the recipe. ;>
