Truly Scrumptious


Last night I attended a cookie exchange party. Cookie Monster would have been in heaven. There were cookies of every size, shape and flavor. Everyone was asked to bring 6 dozen of one type of cookie to share. We then were provided a bakery box by our hostess and filled them up with a variety of cookies to take home. There were prizes given for best tasting cookie, prettiest cookie and best presentation. I had my cookies all packed up to go to the party in Tupperware when I remembered the contest. The pressure was on! I couldn't take them in plain old plastic! I quickly found a platter and asked very nicely for my husband to go out in the cold and cut some holly sprigs to lay on my platter. Sadly the birds have had a feast on our holly berries and we only had one berry left. Holly is just not very festive without berries. I explained that I was very appreciative that he weathered the cold for me, but I just couldn't possibly use holly leaves with no berries. Thank goodness I married a man with an eye for detail. He totally understood. I didn't win a prize for my cookies, but I think they are truly scrumptious.

One of my favorite movies has a character named Truly Scrumptious. Can you name it?

I took Coconut Corn Flake Cookies to the party. Here is the recipe.

3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups coconut
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups corn flakes

Cream butter and sugars. Then add eggs, vanilla, coconut, flour and corn flakes. Drop by spoonful on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.
