Pumpkin Cookies VI
I made these for my son's school. I loved them - they were soft, chewy, not the least bit rubbery. I made them plain, with raisins and with chocolate chips. I also used the serving conversion to take it to 100 servings, instead of 24. It turned out great. They spread nicely, and had a smooth surface like a regular cookie, rather than a bumpy surface as shown in the photo, or like some cake-like cookies tend to have. YUM!

First - I don't understand the posts about adding the egg to the sauce. It's supposed to go into the meat - when/where/how do you add egg to the sauce, and what is it supposed to do if you add that? Puff up or something? Okay...strike one - this dish could have been an utter disaster. I sliced eggplant thin - and was baking it as some recommended. Unfortunately, my thin, delicate slices stuck to the pan (yes, I had oiled them), and then ended up crisping too much (I forgot them...duh). So I sliced up potatoes instead. I knew some versions (and some mentioned here) that you also use potatoes. Strike 2 - I didn't realize until too late, I had no parmesan cheese. Used mozzarella instead. Strike 3 - what is "fines seasoning?" I used Italian. With all that being kids LOVED it. My daughter wants to take some for lunch tomorrow. I will try again with proper ingredients next time, and probably add more tomato sauce and wine to the meat (I may have had more than one pound, and it was kind of dry by the time it simmered down). YUM!

Prune and Olive Chicken
very delicious - and smells great when marinating. I made this for a teacher's luncheon. Surely not their usual fare for teacher's luncheons! They loved it. I made it that night for my family. It was great, but kids were reluctant to eat the prunes - not the most appealing appearance. I will make it again, though, for sure.
