Recipes for you

I have gotten a couple requests for the recipes I mentioned.  So, here they are for you.  Both very yummy!  :)

Carmel Corn

Ingredients

  • 7 quarts plain popped popcorn
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Place the popped popcorn into two shallow greased baking pans. You may use roasting pans, jelly roll pans, or disposable roasting pans. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, margarine and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring enough to blend. Once the mixture begins to boil, boil for 5 minutes while stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from the heat, and stir in the baking soda and vanilla. The mixture will be light and foamy. Immediately pour over the popcorn in the pans, and stir to coat. Don't worry too much at this point about getting all of the corn coated.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, removing the pans, and giving them each a good stir every 15 minutes. Line the counter top with waxed paper. Dump the corn out onto the waxed paper and separate the pieces. Allow to cool completely, then store in airtight containers or resealable bag.

Homemade Oreo Cookies


2 devils food cake mixes
1 cup melted butter
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Mix well - roll into cherry sized balls.  Place onto cookie sheet.  Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  This is going to make a lot of dough...but you will need 2 cookies for each Oreo.  :)

Filling
 1 - 8 oz package of cream cheese softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix well and spread between cooled cookies.
Pop into mouth and enjoy!
