It's not hamburger meat!

Howling winds and no desire to go outside made me walk into the cooking department. 
I found some colourful cookie photos and thought that I should give it a try. I could find my cookie forms otherwise I would have cut them into hearts.
After JP. came back from his photo tour we had a nice "cuppa" coffee and pink strawberry flavoured cookies.
You want one?
Maybe I will make green christmas tree cookies in December......
JP captured a ghost at the cliffs.
Do you SEE it too?
A SEA ghost.
if not keep the bottom
For recipe go below


3-1/2 cups  flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1-1/2 cups  butter or margarine, softened
                 (360g, but I used only 2 sticks)
1 cup  sugar
2 pkg.  (3 oz. each) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin, divided
                 (I used 1 pck for 4 servings)
1  egg
1 tsp.  vanilla

How to:

Heat oven to 400°F.
Mix flour and baking powder. Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and 1 pkg. gelatin; beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass. Sprinkle with remaining dry gelatin mix.
Bake 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.


  1. They look and sound very tasty, yummy!

    1. Next time I will try and mix some dried strawberries into the dough. That should make them even better!

  2. That ghost cloud is pretty eerie - really. Very clever of you to see it. :) Hope you had a nice Halloween.

    1. It was calm, not hordes at the door. We could eat it all alone :))

I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
