After my post about a Christmas cooking-baking day with three of my girlfriends, I feel compelled to write a post about another dear friend, Eloise Lloyd. She and her husband John moved from the Houston suburbs into the city to be nearer to their son and their doctors.
Eloise is kind and caring -- and bakes incredible cookies. She came to one party with these cookies and everyone gobbled them up.
You have to try them now, because the cranberry bread mix you make them with is seasonal and can be hard to find.
1 box Pillsbury Quick Bread Cranberry Mix
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup craisins (dried, sweetened cranberries)
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine bread mix, margarine and egg and mix well
Stir in craisins.
Form dough into 1 1/4-inch balls and place 3 inches apart on a nonstick cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are a light golden color. (Be careful not to overbake.)
