For Diane WI wondering if she can freeze bologna, the answer is yes, but she may not like the texture of the meat once it has been frozen, so I agree it would be a good idea to try it with a small amount to see if she likes the results. Since you are going to use it to make a spread, you probably won't mind or even notice the difference that much. If you were going to use it to make sandwiches, I think you would not like it. The freezing draws out the water/liquid content, thus the texture is different. Let us know what you decide.

Hello again everyone. Sorry that I left out the oven temp for the peanut butter cookies, which should be 350. Also, depending on your oven, the baking time may vary. The cookies should be golden brown around the edges, baking time might be between 13 or 14 minutes.

I want to thank everyone for all the good cookie recipes today, especially the fruitcake cookies, which look great

I do not care for fruitcake or fruitcake cookies but these are an exception! I sent this in years ago but wanted to repeat. When the phone company here in Alabama was Bell South, with their bills they always accompanied it with a recipe. This is a very old and easy recipe. Enjoy!

1 can Eagle milk

Dredge fruit in flour. Add salt, coconut and nuts. Add milk. Mix well. Place by spoonful on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 275 for 25-30 minutes.
