Welcome!

Welcome to our family cookbook. We're not into taking fancy pictures or doing colorful websites. We are just into food: cooking it and eating it. These are recipes that we have created, adapted or received from friends. Most of all they are recipes that we love. We hope you will love them, too.

You should visit the About Us page. It includes our oldest family recipe from Missouri Ann Ferguson, grandmother of J. Carl Ferguson, Jr., in her own handwriting.

By the way, Uncle Dave's Husky Treats are the best "Rice Krispie Treats" you have ever had. Buy them at www.huskytreats.com

Thanks,

Recipe of the Day
From Better Homes & Gardens - http://www.bhg.com/recipe/cookies/the-best-sugar-cookies/

2/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 recipe Royal Icing (optional)
Small decorative candies (optional)

In a large bowl beat butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Divide dough in half. Cover; chill about 30 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough, half at a time, until 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Using 2-1/2-inch cookie cutters, cut dough into desired shapes. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are very light brown. Transfer to wire racks; cool. If desired, frost with Royal icing and/or decorate with decorative candies.

Makes about 3 dozen
