The e Cookbook Library is one of the best bargains on the internet. They have many downloadable pdf recipe books. It currently is on sale for $17.97 for a lifetime membership. The library is full of wonderful cookbooks and many recipe books have been added over the past 10 years. I especially like the cookbooks God Bless Texas, The Best of Amish Cooking and Know Your Ingredients.

This makes a great present as a subscription or on CD. Last year many of the NancyLanders used it as a stocking stuffer and others used it as a wedding present.

Robbie's Eggnog Thumbprints Recipe

2/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 slightly beaten egg whites
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon rum or 1/4 teaspoon rum extract - can also use vanilla
1 to 2 teaspoons milk
Ground nutmeg

Beat the 2/3 cup butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and the 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg; beat until combined. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Beat in as much flour as you can. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. If necessary, cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in egg whites, then in chopped walnuts. Place 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Press centers with your thumb. Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

For filling, beat the 1/4 cup butter until softened. Add powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in rum or rum extract and enough milk to make of spreading consistency. Spoon or pipe about 1/2 teaspoon filling into center of each cookie. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Makes about 40.

Make-Ahead Tip: Bake and cool cookies but do not fill. In an airtight or freezer container arrange cookies in a single layer; cover with a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat layers, leaving enough air space to close container easily. Freeze up to 1 month. To serve, thaw cookies. Prepare filling and spoon or pipe into center of each cookie. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Hi all,
Judy in Alaska submitted a recipe for Microwave Rocky Road Candy Recipe in the 11/21/14 newsletter. I have used this recipe for years now - it's wonderful - but Judy indicated to use 1/2 cup butter. My recipe is exactly the same, but says to use 1/2 cup PEANUT Butter! Judy, did you leave out the word "peanut"? I usually halve this recipe and make it in a loaf pan and use peanuts for the nuts. Oh, and I line the pan with foil for easy removal and clean-up.
