The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Dreary Days on the Prairie. . .

Just another dreary day on the prairie. . .
                                                        So~o~o. . .I baked some cookies!



One of my most enjoyable magazines is Tea Time magazine. While browsing the January / February 20111 edition, I came across a recipe for cashew cookies. I crave anything with cashews! ! !
"Mr. Ed" just likes nuts!



All the required ingredients are, basically, those in every household pantry.








. . . and, yes, it makes 2 dozen cookies!



. . . 2 dozen cashew cookies!



M~m~m~. . .
what better way to chase away a dreary day on the prairie than Cashew Cookies Under Glass?

Until next time. . .

I love both Tea Time Magazine and cashews as well -- I guess I missed that recipe in my magazine or overlooked it!!!

Yummy, Pat!
I love that you put these delicious sounding Cashew cookies under glass. Doesn't that make them so fancy! I have picked up "Tea Time" once in a while. I think everything looks so pretty in that mag. And so do your cookies!
