Demolition Expert; Cookie Recipe

I now have a new title… Demolition Expert.  If you need something broken or destroyed, just call me!

Not only did I destroy my glasses yesterday morning, but last night at quilt club I also did THIS to my favorite rotary cutter…103_0411

Yes, I have used this cutter probably 6 years or so, but it was my FAVORITE, and they no longer make this style.  A replacement of a similar style is ordered, but I am mourning the passing of my favorite cutter.  Don’t let me get near any of your favorite things… I’m sure I could destroy them for you.

To brighten my mood I think I will go eat another cookie.  These are even better than sand tarts because they are so crunchy.  DH says they are addictive, and he is right… you CAN’T eat just one.


“Just The Best” Cookie 

(Thanks to Dorothy Alford for sharing her recipe!)

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup salad oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup crushed Corn Flakes

1/2 cup coconut

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 1/2 cups regular flour

Cream butter until soft; add sugars and mix until fluffy; add egg and mix well; add oil and vanilla.

Mix in pecans, oatmeal, Corn Flakes and coconut.  Stir soda and salt into flour; add to cookie mix, stirring well.

Roll into balls the size of walnuts; place on cookie sheet and flatten with a fork.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. 

Place on a brown paper bag or paper towel to cool and absorb excess oil.
