So here are a few of my favorites:
- Chicken Pillows (Crescent rolls stuffed with chicken, cream cheese, and diced green chilies)
- Mom's Lasagna (You don't even have to pre-cook the noodles!)
- Creamy Enchiladas
- French Toast with Nana's homemade bread!
- Crepes! (Fav combo: strawberries and nutella!)
- Homemade Oreos.
I made oreos tonight, and I thought I'd share the recipe. Here goes!
Homemade Oreos (courtesy of Nicole Esau)
1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
2/3 cup shortening
Frosting (Wilton's Buttercream Icing):
1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
1 teaspoon clear butter flavoring
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
2 tablespoons water (sometimes more to thin it out)
Makes: About 3 cups of icing. (I usually make a half recipe for 1 box of cake)
Optional: Replace butter flavoring with peppermint, cut down on vanilla flavoring. Flavor to taste. I like a lot. Tint with green food coloring.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the cookie ingredients all together until well blended. Then roll into approximately 1 inch balls.
Bake for 8 minutes. Do not cook longer. Otherwise they dry out too much.
They look like this when they are done. mmmmmm!!!
