They are always fun, especially when you go with your mother and sisters. The four of us try to do a girls trip once a year(no kids,or husbands allowed). In the past we have gone to a spa outside of Chicago, met in DC and now this trip, just to name a few. The trip always includes lot of laughs,maybe some tears(happy), cocktails, knitting, needlepoint,knitting and needlepoint, knitting and needlepoint, oh and a little bit of exercise to appease my sister Lisa. She is a certified Yoga guru and quite good I might add. Our trips are not complete without these little tasty treats.
Pepper nuts are a crunchy, sweet,peppery snack that you can't eat just one. They kind of look like Bellini's treats, but I promise they are for our pleasure only.
6 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1t baking powder
~mix the above ingredient's then add 1 1/2 cups of melted butter and 1 cup of cold water.
roll into snakes and freeze (they are easier to cut). Then cut(with scissors) into almond size shapes. Bake 350 until light brown. About 20-22 min. Cool on wire rack.
Hint~leave "snakes" in freezer until ready to cut.
CAUTION~~~ Pepper nuts are very time consuming but I promise they are sooooo worth it.
I dropped the Yarmulke off at my LYNS to be finished. As you can see, I changed some of the colors. You can do that you know.....
Have a great weekend!
PS...Are you wondering where we are going on this trip? TO BE CONTINUED :)
