Game Day Baked Goods

And by game day, I mean Ohio State vs anyone.

Never underestimate a food manufacturer’s test kitchen. You need not use the brand names, but the following recipes are all winners, as was the team on Saturday. I sent the photo out Saturday – now recipes to match. The links to each are below.

**As a special note – our family sympathies are with the family of the Ohio State player who recently lost his life. It’s a terrible tragedy.

Cookies…Yeah, That Kind of Cold

There's only one respite from the polar vortex, and I mean inside or out. I've got to be in front of a warm oven. That probably explains why I baked the whole batch of rugelach (like a Jewish croissant cookie) instead if saving half for later.

We also made these cookies in the cooking class I taught this week. The food processor dough is so easy, we made two Middle Eastern salads and the fixins for an Israeli inspired sandwich.

Sub mini chips for the walnuts. You'll thank me.

Last Minute Butter Cookies

These are so quick to pull together, and so foolproof, they will become a baking staple. Proves the Land O Lakes test kitchen really knows what it's doing.

I even made the cookies, formed them into balls and baked a couple of hours later when I had room in the oven. Watch for overtaking – you don't want too much color on the bottom. Click here for the recipe.

BTW this counts for meat free any day!
