What Better Way To Begin July Than With A Treat?

Chocolate Chip Brownies
¾ cup flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
½ cup oil
2 eggs
2 envelopes liquid, unsweetened cocoa
6 ounces chocolate chips
½ cup nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix it all together in a bowl with a fork; pour it into an 8 inch square, greased baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. These brownies are so simple to make and they are very moist and chocolatey. When my sister was a tiny little girl she brought this recipe home to Mother in an elementary school recipe book.

Easy Coconut Macaroons
14 ounces Baker’s Coconut
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything together in a bowl. Drop by teaspoons full 1 inch apart on a well greased cookie sheet. Press down lightly with the back of a spoon to smooth the ends of the coconut. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove immediately from pans and cool completely on wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen. These are very moist and very easy to make. You can also dip the bottoms in melted chocolate and/or add slivered almonds. They look lovely on a dessert tray for a tea or any other kind of party.

Sugar & Spice Balls
1 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups Corn Flakes
1 cups chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first five ingredients well with mixer; add Corn Flakes and nuts, mixing just long enough to incorporate well. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Bake at 350 degrees on lightly oil sprayed cookie sheets until firm and slightly brown - approximately 10 minutes. While cookies are still warm, roll each in powdered sugar. Roll them again after the cookies have completely cooled. These cookies are perfect to make just for a yummy treat or for a tea. The Corn Flakes stay crunchy. Of all the cookie recipes I have, these are my daughter's favorite cookie.
