Cookies, S'mores and a Pie!

Since I've been off for the summer I've been doing a lot more baking than usual. Here are a few things I've made:

Chicken Pot Pie

My friend, Karen, taught me how to do this one, and it's REALLY EASY!
This is a standard 9 inch pie. All you need is:
Ready-made pie crust that comes in a box and you unroll it.
Cooked chicken {I used leftovers from a roasted chicken}
A package of frozen mixed veggies {carrots, corn, peas etc.}
Cooked potatoes cut up in chunks.
A can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup.

Lay down the first pie crust layer in the pie pan and trim the edge.
Layer in all the ingredients.
Cover it all with the last pie crust layer.
Pinch the edges and cut slits on top to vent steam.
Turned out yummy!

During our rv trip to Oregon I got addicted to these.

I saw on somebody's blog that they made them in the oven- so I copied!
They got perfectly toasted in the toaster oven!

This week I had to make 6 dozen cookies to bring to some meetings.

Crinkle Cookies!
{Just like everyone's grandma used to bake!}

half a cup a butter
1 and half cup of sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. of vanilla
4 (1 oz) squares of unsweetened chocolate (melted)
2 cups of flour
2 tsp. of baking powder
one-quarter tsp. of salt
powdered sugar

Set oven at 350 degrees. Mix ingredients. Refrigerate dough for 2 hours.
Roll into balls and coat with powdered sugar before baking.

They are so yummy!

S'mores in the toaster! And they look nice and toasty too. I'm gonna have to try that one. We make them in the microwave, but they don't get nice and toasty and that's the best part!

Yummy Yummy!! S'mores are my favorite!

You asked about the paint color in my bedroom...I can't remember off the top of my head, but I did a post in June that had the color name. So I would go back to my archives and check it out! :)

I make the same chicken pie, and my daughter made the crinkle cookies tonight, just a little variation. I am watching what I am eating, and boy that makes me hungry. Jackie
