Turkey and Cheese Roll Ups

Thanks to my sister Jennifer who gave me this recipe- they are great on a night that you need dinner on the table fast!

You will need:

Turkey Lunch Meat or your choice
Croissant Dough ( the pillsbury kind that comes in a tube)
Cheese -you can use processed cheese slices or the real thing- it's your choice

Heat your oven to 350 degrees

Separate the croissants and then take your lunch meat (you can use what ever you like) and cut it to fit the flattened croissant. Place a piece of cheese on top of the meat and then roll it up like you would a croissant. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes- if you double the recipe and put them on the same baking sheet allow extra time. (Croissants come 8 to a package- at least the ones that I have purchased have)

Serve them with Soup

Chocolate Caramel Preztel Bites

I didn't know what else to call these things...

You will need a bag of pretzel snaps (square pretzels), a bag of Rolos....

Carefully arrange the pretzels row by row on a cookie sheet and place a Rolo on each pretzel. (this is something your kids could help with) Bake at 200 degrees for 10 minutes or until chocolate is shiny and melted- pull them out of the oven and give your cookie sheet a little smack as you set the cookie sheet down- this causes the rolo to sink and spread over the top of the pretzel.

Let them cool a little and then enjoy!

Mrs. Fields' Cookies

I had this recipe in my recipe stash and I don't think I had ever made them before today. I modified them a little because I like to have a little substance to my cookie. I don't like flat cookies that are paper thin! :)

2 c. butter or margerine
2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c Sugar

Cream well...

Add: 2 Tablespoons Vanilla
3 Eggs

Beat Well together

Then add:
7 C. Flour (The original recipe called for only 6 cups of flour- but the dough wasn't thick enough for me)
1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. soda


Add: 3 C Chocolate Chips

Cook for 12 minutes at 350 degrees. When the time is up- take cookies out of the oven and let them sit on the cookie sheet to continue to bake for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
