Centerpiece by Katherine and Gramma
Happy St. Patrick's Day! We celebrated on Saturday with boiled dinner and green cookies. Mmmm....
I answered some questions that were asked during my maternity leave in the last post, and I didn't mean to leave anyone out. So, any questions you'd like me to answer? Fire away.
I'll get you started with a fun fact. The number one search for this blog is "Star Wars birthday party." True story.
Pistachio Pudding Cookies*
1 cup Bisquick baking mix
1 small package instant pistachio pudding
1/4 cup canola oil
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients until the dough forms a ball. Shape dough into one-inch balls. Place about two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie with a fork, as you would with peanut butter cookies. Bake until the edges are light brown, about eight minutes. Makes about two dozen cookies.
*Most pudding mixes are dairy free, and so is Bisquick. This recipe is from my junior high home ec. class, although I'm sure you could find a million variations of it online.
[Edited to add: Do NOT use sugar-free pudding mix. Just ask Swistle.]
