Thoughts On Strawberry Pretzel Pie:

This great Strawberry Pretzel Pie is not only tasty, but it is super delicious! I will always remember my first job. I worked at a local restaurant and they make strawberry pies there. The restaurant was famous for its "Little Round Pies" and those who lived away would always stop in to get their pie while traveling. The restaurant served several flavors of pies but my favorite was strawberry. The crust was good but it was not like the one in this recipe. The salty flavor of the pretzel contrasting with the sweetness will make your tastebuds dance.

More Information On Strawberry Pretzel Pie:

This recipe is more commonly called Strawberry Pretzel Salad in recipe history. The salad recipe calls for Jello instead of making a glaze. It's A Southern Thing wrote an article called Strawberry Pretzel Salad: A History Of A Southern Favorite That's Not A Salad At All and they provide some history on the subject of this dessert. Another interesting fact, September 28th is National Strawberry Cream Pie Day. Mark it on your calendar!

My Thoughts For The Day:

Fog in rural Missouri

See the line of fog?

My youngest daughter recently received her driving permit and it allows me to enjoy viewing the beauty of our area while in the car. She loves driving and I enjoy the views outside the car. Living in Southwest Missouri is such a blessing. There are many rural roads that can be traveled. It is not uncommon to drive by small dairy farms and see cows, horses, or smaller animals. I have traveled to many places in the United States but there's no place like home. I love the dirt I'm from. There are farms that grow food crops. The most common food crop here in Southwest Missouri is corn. Corn seems to grow well here.

Thanks for reading my thoughts for the day. Please leave a comment and share your thoughts.

Keep on cooking!

Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe - (Cookies)

Ingredients: (Cookie)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1 cup carrots, cooked and mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions: (Cookie)

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, butter, egg, and carrots, mixing well. Stir the dry mixture into the sugar mixture. Add vanilla. Stir in nuts. Drop a well-rounded teaspoon about 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until no imprint remains when touched lightly with a fingertip. Let the cookies cool. You don't want to overbake this soft cookie.

Ingredients: (Frosting)

3 cups powdered sugar
Grated rind of 1 orange
3-4 tablespoons orange juice

Directions: (Frosting)

Combine all the icing ingredients and mix them well. Frost the cookies with icing, and sprinkle the chopped pecans on the icing.

Thoughts On Carrot Cake Cookies:

I really enjoy carrot cake but I also love cookies and this carrot cake cookie recipe is the best of both. This cookie reminds me of carrot cake and that is why I titled it Carrot Cake Cookies. Warm cookies right out of the oven are the best. When you make this recipe it is difficult to have them warm because of the icing that is supposed to go on the cookie after it is cooled. If you know your microwave well you can warm the cookies just enough not to melt the icing but also make the cookies warm. If you don't want to do that you can just enjoy the cookies at room temperature. They will be good no matter what.

More Information On Carrot Cake Cookies:

National Carrot Cake Day is February 3rd. You can learn more interesting facts about carrot cake by visiting Mark this date on your calendar.

According to Melissa K. Norris, the Carrot Cookie originated during World War II and is considered a vintage recipe. The carrot cookie revived the carrot cake popularity in America.

Some Questions For You:

Do you prefer a carrot cake or a carrot cookie? Have you baked either one of these tasty treats? Did you see my last recipe? If you missed it, it is called White Texas Sheet Cake Easy Recipe and it is a popular dessert in Texas.

My Thoughts For The Day:

A curious food gift.

I was given this little cast iron skillet as a gift. All I need is 8 ounces of softened cream cheese and it makes about 2 skillets. I love food gifts like this. It's a cooking project that can be enjoyed. The directions say to clean the skillet and oil it like any other skillet. I don't know what I could do with a little skillet. Do you have any ideas? I was thinking I could use it to cook a single egg.

What is the most interesting food gift you have received? I once received a beer bread kit in a beer bottle with the recipe printed on the back. All I needed to do was add 1 beer, mix, and bake in the oven.

Keep on cooking!
