This is a recipe my Mom used to make many years ago. It is a light dessert, easy and quick to prepare and it was always welcome at the table or at a covered dish supper. The only name I ever heard her call it was “Cookie Pie” , and me and my sister still make “Cookie Pie” today. You can make it as large or small as you wish by using more or less ingredients. I use the following for an approximate 12 x 8 Rubbermaid Container for approximately 8 servings.

Cookie Pie Recipe

3 bags of Keebler Coconut Cookies with Chocolate Chips
1 Large and 1 small Cool Whip (I use lite)

Milk to dip cookies in
Dip each cookie in regular milk and layer in bottom of container.(just a quick dip and shake off excess) Cover with a layer of Cool Whip. Repeat layers until all cookies are used. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

My sister has used Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies and it was just as good. So experiment and have fun!.

Here is a slightly different zucchini bread recipe. I have included the glaze, but I rarely add it to the bread. I have used half all purpose flour and half wheat for a healthier loaf.

I've made this recipe several times, and it is really good. It is a 'Taste of Home' recipe, and submitted by Denice Louk of Garnett, Kansas. It makes quite a lot, and I usually cut the recipe in half.

Chicken Fried Steaks Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 teaspoon each of salt, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder and
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1-1/4 cups buttermilk, divided
4 beef cubed steaks (4 oz. each)
Oil for frying
1-1/2 cups 2% milk

In shallow bowl, combine 1-3/4 cups flour, baking powder and
seasonings. In another bowl, combine egg and 3/4 cup buttermilk. Dip each cubed steak in buttermilk mixture, then roll in flour mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil on medium high. Fry steaks for 5-7 minutes. Turn carefully; cook 5 minutes longer or until coating is crisp and meat is no longer pink. Remove steaks and keep warm

Drain, reserving 1/3 cup drippings; stir remaining flour into drippings until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk and remaining buttermilk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with steaks.
