Yvonne Focke


4 cups sugar
1 cup milk
¾ cup cocoa powder
Boil for 1 minute
Stir in 1 stick of butter
Stir in 1 cup of peanut butter
Add 6 cups of oatmeal
Stir fast because it hardens – place a tablespoon on wax paper and let harden completely

PECAN PUFFS (2 dozen)
½ cup butter
2 TBS sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of flour
I cup pecans, finely chopped
Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla
Stir in flour and pecans, Form into 1 inch balls, place on cookie sheet
Cook at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes
Remove from sheet and roll in powdered sugar while hot
Cool and roll again in powdered sugar

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp baking soda
3/5 cups flour
Fold all together and refrigerate – when cooled, roll out and use cookie cutters as desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine corn, creamed corn, sugar, flour, milk, eggs – mix well (I usually beat the eggs first). Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1.5 hours (until stops shaking)
*Be sure it goes into the oven after mixing – if it sits, the eggs surface and are not mixed in well
