Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies 

  
This recipe was brought to me by the Food Network website were they have these cookies. The ingredients are listed below.

Ingredients:

1 cup of Peanut Butter

1 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 large egg

Sea salt (very important)
The Process:

First you need to get a pretty decent sized bowl and put the sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract in it. 

Mix the ingredients until you get a substance that looks kind of like this.

  
Then, get a spoon ( or a small sized ice cream scoop) and take small balls of the batter out and spread them across a cookie sheet about an inch to an inch and a half apart. 

   
 After doing this get a fork and gently press on the cookies with the fork pointing upwards and then sideways. Repeat with every cookie.

  
Next, get the sea salt and lightly sprinkle it on top of each cookie. It blends the cookies flavors together really well.

  
Next, put them in the oven for 10 minutes on 350°. 

After they are out put them on the cooling rack carefully and they should look like this.

  
Then put a little extra dash of sugar on the top of each before they cool all the way. 

Enjoy the cookies and have a blast. It makes anywhere from 18-24 cookies.

There is another version of this on my grandparents website (click here) to see it. 

Thank You ~JC~

Mrs. Holster’s Quick Party Bars

First of all, you are probably wondering who Mrs. Holster is.
Mrs. Holster was a very important person in my families life. She was a woman who taught my grandmother many things and spent a lot of time with her. She was an amazing chef, who took pride in cooking and baking for her husband, kids, grand kids and others. My mother recently got married and as a gift, received Mrs. Holsters recipes from a special family member. We decided to start making her recipes and last night made our very first. They are called “Quick Party Bars”. We made a dairy and gluten free version but you don’t have to. It tastes good either way.

Anyway here is the recipe.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Finely chopped nuts

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to make this:

1. Blend 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 1 tsp. vanilla.

2. Add one egg to the blended mixture and beat till fluffy.

3. Stir in 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup rolled oats.

4. Spread mixture in greased 7×11 inch pan.

5. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

6. Cool slightly then melt 1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips on the top of the bars.

7. Sprinkle finely chopped nuts on the top after you have poured the melted chocolate on top.

8. Cut the bars while they are warm because if you don’t, they get hard and it is very difficult to cut them.

This is what the finishing product should look like right after you cut them.

Here’s a tip: Put them in the fridge for a short period of time so the chocolate can thicken up some more or else it will drip everywhere.

This should be what it looks like after it comes out of the fridge.
