Cinnamon Biscuits

These were great! I made the dough in my food processor. The dough was a little wet. I added about 1/4 cup of flour after I took it out of the food processor. I didn't add nuts. These were really quick and easy to make. These are better the next day.

Cinnamon Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, melted (or very soft)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
chopped pecan (optional)

1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine flour, baking powder and salt and shortening in food processor. Pulse until crumbly. Add milk and 1 tsp. vanilla; pulse just until dough leaves sides of bowl. Roll dough out, on lightly floured surface, into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with butter (I prefer to use soft butter rather than melted). Combine cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle evenly over dough. Sprinkle with chopped pecans (or other nuts or raisins) if desired. Roll up, starting on long side. Cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Place rounds, with sides just touching, in greased 9" round pan. Bake at 425°F for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Salted Nut Bars

These are very similar to the Butterscotch Cashew bars. I think these taste like peanut brittle.

Salted Nut Bars

1 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups salted mixed nuts or peanuts
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until evenly mixed. Press evenly in bottom of ungreased rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Bake 15 minutes; cool slightly.
Cut up any large nuts. Sprinkle nuts evenly over crust. In 1-quart saucepan, heat all remaining ingredients over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until chips are melted. Drizzle butterscotch mixture evenly over nuts. Bake 5 minutes. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows while warm for easiest cutting.

Sloppy Joes

I am not a real big Sloppy Joe fan but Tadd is. I found this recipe and I actually really like it. It is quick and easy to make for dinner.

Sloppy Joes
1 lb ground round
1/2 cup catsup
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tsp sugar
4 tsp mustard
4 tsp vinegar
4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp minced onion flakes

Cook meat slowly in skillet with salt and onion. Drain and put back in skillet. Add remaining ingredients and cook slowly over low heat for 20 minutes, to let meat absorb the sauce. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.
