My holiday gift to you, two recipes passed down from my dearly departed great grandmother. Don't blame me for not being able to stop eating them.

Amish Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup oil
2 eggs beaten
4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract

Mix cream of tartar, butter, sugar together. Add eggs and oil. Beat. Add all dry ingredients. Drop by teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 deg. Dip bottom of a cut wine glass in sugar, pres onto cookie for design. (You can also try Stampin' Up! Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps!) Cookies should be thin and melt away on your tongue.

Puffcorn Caramel Curls

8 oz bag of Old Dutch Puff Corn Curls, or puffed corn
2 qt saucepan
1/2 lb butter, not margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
wax paper

Place corn puffs in large roaster pan. In a 2 qt saucepan cook together for 2 minutes: butter, brown sugar, corn syrup. Add 1 tsp baking soda to mixture. This will cause mixture to foam so 2 qt pan is necessary. Pour caramel mixture over puffs and stir until mixed. Place in oven for 45 minutes at 250 deg. Stir at least every 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven, pour on wax paper and break apart.
