1⁄2 cup butter, softened (no substitutes!)
8 ounces sour cream
3 eggs
2⁄3 cup milk
2 tablespoons red food coloring (McCormick's is GF)
8 ounces cold cream cheese (Philadelphia is gluten-free)
5 tablespoons softened butter
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar
1 pinch salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine the first seven ingredients in a large mixing bowl at medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. (The remaining ingredients are for the frosting!).

Once combined, spoon the mixture into muffin pans lined with cupcake liners. Bake for 16 – 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in the center.
Let the cupcakes cool in the pans for five minutes, then carefully remove them and place them on cooling racks.

Directions For the Frosting:

Beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until combined (but do not whip). Add salt.
Gradually add powdered sugar with the mixer on slow until desired sweetness/texture.
These cupcakes should be kept in the refrigerator if they aren’t eaten within 12-24 hours due to the cream cheese frosting! (Note, cupcakes seem to "deflate" or "shrink" as time goes on, but they still taste great!)

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Al & Peggy K.

The
cookie recipe is from Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix bag.

Ingredients:
IMG_2604


7 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, large
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups
Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (1-1/2 cup chips for chocolate lovers)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugars together. Mix in egg and vanilla, then dry mix. Add chocolate chips and nuts and incorporate. Place scoops of dough (1 TBSP sized) on parchment lined or greased cookie sheet. Lightly flatten. Bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Let cookies cool slightly and use a spatula to remove from cookie sheet.


Ingredients for sandwiches:

Lots of chocolate chip cookies
(an even number is preferable, although many would be open to an open-faced ice cream cookie sandwich)
Gluten-Free Vanilla Ice Cream - slightly softened (Haagen Dazs used here)

Directions for making sandwiches:

After cookies have completely cooled, create pairs with similar diameters. The tops and bottoms should be close to the same size.
With an ice cream scoop form a 1" to 2" (or more) diameter ball. Place ball on bottom cookie. Place cookie on top of ice cream and gently press until it expands to the edge of the cookie - but not over. Scrape excess ice cream with knife or spatula. Place cookie in a container already in the freezer.

Tip: Make sure your cookies have cooled and don't let your ice cream get to melty when assembling the sandwiches. Ice cream may start to run even after you put them in the freezer.

We purchased dry ice to keep these guys frozen for the cookout. Worked like a charm!

Cold Veggie Salad

Kimberly S.

Ingredients:

Any veggies you have on hand, today's mix included:

1 large onion
3 stalks of celery
1 pound each of corn, peas, green beans [all cooked, if frozen; otherwise 15oz can each is fine...especially if you're not cooking for an army!]
1 Green Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1 Yellow Sweet Pepper
1 pound of your favorite beans [today's were kidney - they add nice color]

Dressing:

1 cup oil
½ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon ground pepper
Dash of ground mustard

Put dressing ingredients in an a small-medium bowl and whisk together.

Put all veggies in a large bowl, pour on dressing and carefully mix ingredients together. Chill in the fridge.


Deviled Eggs

Al K.

Ingredients:
Girls Spoon


Eggs – hard boiled
Miracle Whip
Hellman's Mayo
Penzey's Ground Mustard
Penzey's Powered Garlic (omitted)
Penzey's Powered Onion
Penzey's White Pepper
White Vinegar
Salt
Penzey's Smoked Paprika

Directions:

Cut eggs in half and put yolks in a food processor, set aside the white halves for filling.
Pulse the yolks until they're finely ground

Add 2 heaping tablespoons of Miracle Whip, 1 heaping tablespoon of Hellman's to yolks. Mix.
Scrape the sides of the bowl and add another 1 or 2 spoons of MW and 1 of Hellman's. Mix

You're going to for a smooth, creamy texture. You'll also want to adjust the MW/Hellman's balance too. Again – use your taste buds. We add the Hellman's because MW can breakdown and get watery over time. Hellman's stops this from happening.

Now add a ¼ teaspoon of vinegar and mix. Taste – is it tangy enough for you? Add more if you like. We like ours tangy. Usually as the day goes on, the tanginess turns into sweetness, so we usually go for a bit extra tang upfront.

Now add the ground mustard and mix. Start small and add a little until you get it to your liking.

Do the same thing with the onion and garlic powder. You might go lighter on the garlic.

Same goes for salt & pepper.

Once you get the flavor profile where you like it, it's time to fill the shells.

Spoon the filling into plastic bag. Enough so it will fit comfortably in your hand. Snip one of the bottom corners. Don't make the snip too big – do about ¼” or slightly bigger. It's easier to control the filling process.

Squeeze the filling into the shell and set aside.

After all shells have been filled, sprinkle the paprika on top.

Guacamole

Jeannie Heller
Given to me by a sweet Hispanic lady

6 avocados
1 clove garlic diced small
1/2 onion diced
3 or 4 jalapeños (or to taste I like a bit of zip to it)
1 large tomato (skin peeled off and cut small)
Cilantro to taste (I like a lot which gives it an earthy flavor)
1 large or 2 small limes juiced

From a jar of pickled jalapeños take about 2 to 3 tablespoon of just the liquid and add it to the guacamole.

I use a potato masher to mix it up and depending on the company I leave it chunky or mash it up more for a creamier texture.

Leave 2 of the Avocado seeds in the batch to help decrease the browning process.
