A holiday is an opportunity to journey within. It is also a chance to chill, to relax. It is when I switch on my rest mode. -Prabhas

Vanilla Cookie Cups

3 cups flourvanillacandycups

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2/3 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

3 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp cream

Whisk together dry ingredients.  In another bowl combine remaining ingredients until fluffy. Add flour mixture just until blended.  Chill for an hour.

Invert a muffin pan and spray the bottom with cooking oil.  Set aside.

Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and roll into sheets.  Cut circle out of the dough using a cookie cutter and place on one of the muffin bottoms. Mold until the dough is placed firmly against the tin.  Press a glass firmly onto the muffin bottom.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool before removing from tin.  Turn over and fill with mini candies.

Halloween Candy Cookies

I always over estimate the amount of candy that I will pass out to trick or treaters on Halloween.  Consequently, I’m always left with packs of candy that I don’t want to eat. 

One way I use up the chocolate is in this cookie recipe.  I bake the cookies and then freeze them for later.  The cookies will keep for several months if they are wrapped properly before being frozen.
