These stamped shortbread cookie turned out better than any of the other recipes I've tried, plus I just like the way she wrote the directions
Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter (not margarine)
1/2 block of cream cheese (125g)
1/2 tsp vanilla add in :
2 cups flour
I used a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter to cut the dough into circles and stampedthem after transferring to cookie sheet (I did not have to use flour on thestamp face).
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes.
Store in large cookie jar 2 miles from home as you will likely be eating lotsof these and the exercise will help rationalize that they are actually ahealthy lifestyle choice : ) and please eat a fruit or vegetable while walkingto the cookie jar (help with getting the 5 - 10 a day)!
1 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups sugar
Beat the above until yellow glossy.
6 cups quick oats
1 Tbs plus 1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups chopped apples*
Pour into a 9x13" pan. Let set in refrigerator overnight. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
*You can also substitute blueberries or any other fruit you like.

3. Distribute half the bread evenly in a buttered 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole. Place in refrigerator overnight.
4. Set out in the morning 15-20 minutes or at least while the oven is preheating to 350 degrees.

I'm pretty happy with how we spend for the holidays...the girls decided on one big gift this year, although it's a bit more than we usually spend. When I hear people on average spend $750, it just makes my head spin! With their grandparents and aunt/uncles, our kids have plenty. We've tried to convince his parents we, as adults, don't need to exchange gifts, but they insist. Luckily, his siblings have happily agreed, so they just get stuff for the kids.
Not sure what to do with my Mom. According to my aunt, she's not doing well. She needs two cataracts removed, has had pretty bad GI issues, and she needs to have a cancerous lesion taken off her leg and then stay off said leg for two months. Since she doesn't call me (as allegedly I talk too much and "overwhelm" her), I don't know if I should yet again be the bigger person and call. I'm afraid she's so self-absorbed, she's going to blow off the holidays.
