Cookie Monsters X2

First off, a big shout out over to Shelly and the Lijit crew.  I had been struggling with getting a search box up on this blog that actually worked (the google widget did not, argh!).  A tip led me over to the Ljit site and now, less than a day later, I am all kinds of hooked up.  Gee thanks, Lijit!

If your pressed for time, try making these

"Lemon Sprints"
1 box lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 C canola oil
1t lemon flavoring or oil (or lemon juice)
powdered sugar

Mix up all but the sugar.  Roll golf ball size pieces in powdered sugar, place on greased cookie tray and bake @ 375* for 6-9 minutes.  It makes about 2 dozen.

If you are obsessed with Nutella like Bear and I, make these...

Giada de Laurentiis Nutella Cookies

I had failed to mention I had a third helper in the kitchen recently.  Those hands up there?  Yeah, they're connected to...

My good friend J.  As far as the bag on her head?  I'm just gonna have to keep you in the dark a little longer.
