Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Alphabet Cookies

cookies, desserts

1 1/2 each sticks butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 each egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond
1 single extract (to taste)
2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 single milk for brushing on top of
1 single sugar for decorating

Use an electric mixer and beat butter or margarine until soft. Add 3/4 cup sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla or almond flavoring and beat again. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together and add to butter-sugar-egg mixture a little bit at a time. Divide the dough into 2 parts, wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to get hard enough to play with like modeling clay. Then make small balls of dough and roll into ropes. Shape the ropes into numbers or letters on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving a little space between them. Brush with a little milk, sprinkle on a bit of sugar and bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Cool on a rack.
