Sew What Recipes

Annalee's Macaroon Cookies
 (December 2012)

Place rack in upper 1/3 of oven to assist with even browning
Heat oven to 350 degrees
1 - 14oz bag of sweetened coconut
1 - 17oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp  - vanilla
1/8 tsp - salt (preferably kosher or sea salt)
I mix my vanilla into the condensed milk so that I get an even distribution of the vanilla, but the recipe doesn't say to do that.
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Butter a cookie sheet or use a silicon coated non-stick cooking mat. (these cookies really stick to the pan).
Using a deep round spoon, or a SMALL scooper (like an ice cream scoop with the thumb push mechanism that clears the bowl)
make small mounds on the well buttered cookie sheet.
Place in oven for 10 - 12 minutes, but watch them carefully. These cookies go from brown to burnt in a heart beat.
Remove from the oven when golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheets to wire rack. Macaroons will stick if allowed to cool on baking sheet.
These are great if you push a Hershey's Kiss into the middle immediately after baking. And if you get the red and white striped peppermint kisses, then you have a wonderfully colorful tray of party cookies

Ok, I'll get recipes from you guys anyway I can!  This one is on a Mug Rug made by Sharon H for July 2012. Thanks for the recipe.

Sharon H's Brownies

Christmas is all about sharing and memories.  Here's two recipes from former members who are no longer with us. We remember these two sweet ladies fondly.

This recipe was originally made by Virginia Garver, a deceased long-time member of Sew What's. I think of her every time I make it. Ruth S.
1 large package raspberry Jello
2 cups boiling water
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 large can crushed pineapple with juice
1 to 1 1/2 cups nuts
Dissolve Jello in boiling water. Stir in the can of cranberry sauce. Add pineapple with juice. Add nuts. Pour into 9" x13" pan. Chill until firm.
Very good and easy.

Sausage Balls by Judy B.
Judy got this one from another long time friend and member, Christine Miller.

Use 1 pound of hot pork sausage, uncooked
1 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese (both at room temperature)
2 cups of bisquick.
 Mix thoroughly and form into small balls, bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Makes about 40 balls. Enjoy!
