In the last two weeks I have tried 8 new recipes.  (I tried 2 twice because I thought there was potential.)  The best of all of them is this pan cookie recipe.  It came from one of the sites I trust - CLAWSONLIVE.  (See her link on the right side of my blog.)

I made this easy pan sugar cookie for our 4th of July Saturday swim party.  I used a glaze frosting that was only o.k.  Next time I will use my buttercream frosting.  (I was going to make another one with my frosting recipe, but was afraid that I would eat it.)

from CLAWSONLIVE (see side bar) 29 June, 2010

Cream (I just had Doug stir it well.)
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teas. vanilla

Add and mix just until mixed
3 cups flour
2 teas. baking powder

This is a thick dough, more than a batter.  (Lisa says a bit dry.)  Press into an unsprayed big (the usual silver kind) cookie sheet.

Bake at 440* for (this is important) 6 - 8 min.  Do not let it brown.  I cooked mine for 8 (Iwas watching. It was a tiny bit tan.  It was very good, but next time (and there will be many next times) I will only cook it 7.)  Cool and frost.

This cookie has a nice buttery flavour (1 cup butter:)  and you can see the flakey layers.

My recipe from ?. Lisa has a cream cheese frosting with her recipe.

Mix well
1/3 cup softened margarine
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tea. vanilla
2 table. milk

I decorated mine (quickly) with sprinkles as a flag.  I cut it into cookies with a pizza cutter (and just used a knife on the edges).
If you try it, let me know how you liked it.

I am approaching my (trumpet music) 100th POST.  I am going to do a top 10 of my favourite posts.  Post what you think will be my "#1 Favourite Post" and you can win a
36 PIECE 1/8" STEEL ALPHABET STAMPING SET (used for the washer necklaces...)  It is heavy so I hope the winner lives close enough that I can deliver it.  (U.S. winner only.)  You need to be a follower to win.  Just post your guess BEFORE AUGUST 1ST.  (If more than 1 person has the correct "Favourite Post, I will do a drawing.)
AND, I am adding another set of these steel alphabet stamps to my baskets of favourites.  I am starting another basket to be given away in a drawing to a dear follower.  I will draw when I reach 60 followers.  Sign up and follow along and see what I am putting in the basket this time around :)

Kayleen (and Robert).  Did you ever see (or hear) "Ladies In Lavender"?  I found a copy of the dvd for you.  Just email your address to me and I will mail it to you.  (  ("Ladies in Lavender" soundtrack is my go-to music.  It has some beautiful violin music that moves (and relaxes) me.

I didn't try baking the cookie, but I ate a piece of it at the party - delicious!
