TEA CAKES

• 1 cup butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
• 3 cups sugar
• 3 eggs
• 5 1/2 cups self rising flour (save enough to flour cutting board and rolling pin)
• 3 tablespoons milk

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time. Add milk, flavoring and flour. Divide dough and roll very thin; use your favorite cookie cutter to cut dough. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen or more if you roll wafer thin.

Bayou Brownies

•1 cup chopped pecans
• cup butter, melted
•3 large eggs
•1 18.25 oz pkg. yellow cake mix
•1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
•1 16oz pkg. powdered sugar

Combine a cup of chopped pecans with cup butter, 1 egg, and a box of yellow cake mix. Stir until well blended and press into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 X 9 pan. Set this aside and prepare the top layer by combining the last 2 eggs with an 8oz package of cream cheese and a box of powdered sugar; beat until smooth and pour cream cheese mixture over the cake mix layer. Bake at 325 for 40 minutes or until cheese mixture is set. Let cool completely before cutting into squares and ringing the porch bell. Dee-licious!

Cookies and Cream Brownies

Brownies:
• cup melted butter
• cup sugar
• cup brown sugar
• cup baking cocoa
•2 eggs
• cup all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon baking powder
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•12 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed

Cream cheese layer:
•1 (8 ounce) pkg. softened cream cheese
• cup sugar
•1 egg
• teaspoon vanilla extract

I’ve already made the topping and set it aside-- it's easy. Just beat together one eight ounce package of cream cheese with a fourth cup of sugar, an egg, and a teaspoon vanilla extract. You can go ahead and crush up the cookies, too. I have!

We’ll start our brownies by taking this big mixing bowl and combining one half cup of melted butter with cup white sugar, a half cup of brown sugar, and a half cup of baking cocoa. As soon as I get this good and creamy, I’m gonna stir in a half-cup of all purpose flour and a teaspoon of baking powder. Just like this…Now, we’ll add two eggs, slowly, one at a time. That looks good. Now, we’ll add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and our crushed up cookies.

That's about it! We’ll spoon our brownie mix in the bottom of a greased 9x11 pan, top with our cream cheese layer and finish by swirling a knife through both layers to make it pretty. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes and let ‘em cool before slicing.

Thank you for stopping by!
