Whipped Shortbread Cookies
So, I lost my great grandmothers recipes when we lost our home, along with most everything else. When I asked my grown kids what they wanted for Christmas dinner they said Great Grandmas butter cookies. She was a German immigrant, and I remember making these cookies when I was a child, but had relied on what she wrote until it was gone. I went looking on the internet for a recipe that 'felt right' and found this one because the proportions are correct. My granny beat the h-e-double hockey sticks out of it with a wooden spoon, but they turned outs as light at air with a wonderful pure butter flavor. The only difference is that she added some whole milk, right out of the cow. So I used this recipe to the letter, but added a scant 1/4 cup of half and half, a tablespoon at a time. You will know when it is right because when you try to ball it in your hand it will just catch and not crumble. I did as she did, spoon onto pan and put a thumb in the center to fill with whatever yummy jam is on hand. DO NOT bake for 17 minutes. With the added moisture mine took 7 minutes to be perfect. My son also added a hershey's kiss instead of jam and that turned out great. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas. T-

Spinach Lentil Soup
YUMMY!!! I read the reviews before making this dish and switched the broth/water ratio and added garlic and cumin as was suggested by others. I used fresh ground chorizo instead of kielbasa, which added a bit of 'ooomph', basmati rice added with the lentils, and simmered it for much longer than 25 minutes. A huge hit for the whole family!
