Hi all. I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I am officially done shopping, and if I'm not - I AM!
I did a marathon shopping spree today, and I say marathon, because nothing was making me happy. I had to go several places to find what I wanted, and then I settled a couple times.
I am so over shopping for ANYTHING!
I am pooped!
My goal in January is to not buy anything other than maybe milk. We'll see.
I had a question on the 'fancy' trail mix. That's just what I call it. I usually just mix together M & M's. salted peanuts and raisins or craisins. This time I did that AND also added whole almonds (from clearance), small pretzels (cheap), and chocolate drizzled popcorn (.99/bag - used 2).
You get a hand full of yummy every time! Everyone liked it, and said it was good and different.
Just made it a little different this year - and it also stretched it out a little further.
Flour, 4 cups
Baking powder, 2 tsp.
Eggs, well beaten, 4
Sugar 2 cups
Boiling water, 2 tsp.
Anise seed, 2 Tbsp.
Sift flour and add baking powder. To well beaten eggs, gradually add the sugar, beating till thick
Pour boiling water over anise seed and add to egg mixture.
Stir in flour. CHILL
Roll out on a lightly floured board to 1/4" thickness. Roll with a spring form roller or press with a springerle cookie board. **If you do not have one of these simply cut into 1 1/2" x 2" blocks.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and let air dry for 6 - 8 hours at room temperature.
Bake in a 375* oven for 11 - 14 minutes. (No grease needed when baking either).
That's it - very easy!
Wishing you all a great evening!
