Quick and Easy Recipe Books

We have an event at work called a Cookie Walk. Traditionally this has taken place on the Monday prior to Thanksgiving, and this year was no exception. We had eleven participants who each brought in a batch of 6 dozen or more cookies and an empty container. We meet in the faculty room after school and walk around the table taking 3 cookies at a time from each tray until the cookies are gone (we do wear gloves!). It gives us either an extra dessert for Thanksgiving or something to freeze and save for Christmas or holiday of choice.

I have put together the recipe booklet for the event for the last two years and I thought I'd share the current one.

It very simply began with a couple of packages of $1 notecards that I found at Michael's. I just added some embellishments to the front cover, typed the recipes up and stapled them into the card to make a little book.

I tried a new recipe this year which came out pretty good -

Oatmeal Coconut Crisps

1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. butter or margarine (softened)
1 2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. uncooked oats
1 c. flaked coconut

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and soda - set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light. Beat in one egg at a time. Stir in flour mixture, vanilla, oats, then coconut. Drop by teaspoonful 3" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in preheated 375° oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack.
