Chocolate Crinkles II
This is a great recipe. Keep the dough refrigerated and take out only enough to workwith. I found that once the dough gets warm it gets quite sticky and the cookies don't hold their shape well when baked. The cooler the dough is while shaping the nicer the cookies look when baked. I used a melon baller for size.

Christmas Wreath Cake
The best easy fruitcake recipe. Last year I had to make this cake three times before Christmas because we love it so much. I've already today baked one today as my hubby requested it for Thanksgiving.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I
crispy on the outside, chewie on the inside. I used quick cooking oats. Baked them for 9 min. Make sure you let them sit for a minute then remove to cooking rack. If you don't they crumble and if you leave them too long in the pan, you may have problems as they stick to the pan. Brown sugar in a cookie recipe ... makes the cookie a chewie one. Great recipe.
