Here is another recipe that Sharon might want to try, as she attempts to use the instant potatoes that her husband bought on sale. This is a Joanne Fluke recipe that was in her Cherry Cheesecake Murder mystery book. A friend of mine has melted chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzled on top of the cookies, as her family enjoys the combination of chocolate and coconut.

Double Flake Cookies Recipe

1 cup melted butter
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coconut extract- can use vanilla, if you don't have coconut
1 ˝ cups flour
2 cups instant mashed potato flakes
1 cup coconut flakes, firmly packed
3/4 cups finely chopped pecans or walnuts, measure after chopping
1/2 cup granulated sugar for later

Beat eggs. Pour in the sugar and stir. Add the cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and extract. Mix well. Stir in the melted butter and mix well. Add the flour until it is thoroughly incorporated. Measure out 2 cups of potato flakes and mix them in. Add the coconut. Stir in the chopped nuts and mix thoroughly. Cover the dough and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.

When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees with the rack in the center position. Form dough in to balls one inch in diameter. Roll the balls in granulated sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet. Flatten them slightly with spoon and bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges. Cool on the cookie sheet for two minutes, and then remove to wire rack to complete cooling. Yields about 8 dozen.

Storing Onions in Pantyhose

Take a washed and dried pair of pantyhose. Place onions into feet. Tie a knot above each whole onion. Repeat. Hang in cool, dry, dark place. When needed, cut off one onion. Keeps onions dry and they can breathe.

I am not sure if these recipes will work for Vickie, as she tries to prepare meals in her hotel room, but thought I would share it. I hope the water in your area recedes soon so you can return to your home. My parents lived in a hotel for almost 4 months years ago after a fire in their house. Eating out quickly grew old for them and my mom started using her electric skillet and crock pot to prepare their favorite meals. I am guessing I got this recipe from a magazine advertising Stove Top Stuffing.

In response to Gracie's green bean recipe, June 27, this veggie recipe is a cut above! I have made this for years with a few exceptions. I omit, salt, pepper, parsley. I also toast the almonds prior to adding. The lemon juice brings out a flavor of none other. My family counts this as a very favorite veggie. By all means give it a try!

In response to to keep onions, we have successfully rubbed or gently brushed excess dirt off onions,cut off any stems, placed in legs of panty hose, hung them in a cool dry area.( Do not wash the onions prior to panty hose storage)Another suggestion is for cooking purposes, chop onions and place in recipe sizes in freezer bags. Place in freezer. These are especially handy for casseroles and meat dishes. Eat as many of those good onions before having to store. Yum for fresh quality onions!
