Sweet/Salty Butterscotch cookies

Well, it seems as if all I am doing lately is baking. That is probably the last thing I need to do, but.....I love it.
These cookies are basic butterscotch chip cookies with a little twist. I made them sweet and salty by rolling them in a mix of 1/3 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon salt before baking. You can do this with peanut butter cookies or chocolate chip-just about any kind would be good, I think. I just used the recipe on the back of the butterscotch chip package and added my little secret topping. They were so good!

Freshly Baked Bread

Thank you Kathy for this wonderful bread recipe. I made 2 loaves the day before yesterday and they are almost gone. Here's the link for the original recipe Grandmother Bread 

Nothing is better than the smell and taste of freshly baked bread. Try it!

Pecan Pie Cake

Our local volunteer Fire Department had their annual fundraiser and I made this cake for the auction. It is a Pecan Pie Cake from Southern Living. It is actually easy to make and really good.

Three layers of cake and 2 layers of filling

Pasty leaves made from refrigerated pie crust

Packaged and ready for the auction
