100th Anniversary Treats...

This past Sunday our church celebrated it's 100th Anniversary! It was a wonderful time of worship, food, and fun!!! Here's two recipes I took...

White Texas Sheet Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 tsp almond extract

Bring butter and water to a boil. Mix flour and sugar in a large bowl. Pour the boiling liquid over the flour and sugar and beat well. Add the remaining ingredients and beat well. Pour into a well greased jelly roll pan. (Mine is about 12"x17") Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. Cool for 20-30 minutes and spread with frosting.

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Bring butter and milk to a boil. Pour over remaining ingredients, adding enough powdered sugar to achieve the consistency you want.

Crispy Butter Cookies

1 box yellow cake mix with "pudding in the mix"
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup Rice Krispies

Blend all ingredients together. Dough will be crumbly. Form into tight 1-inch balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake in 350 oven for 10-12 minutes.

* My non-sweet-eater of a husband really loved this one! It sort of reminds us of the gooey butter cake! Yumm...

What a hoot about the cookies. I don't know if I've ever seen a recipe like that before. It sounds quite intriguing.

Bless you for your kind and generous heart and supporting your place of worship. It's so good to hear.

I like the crispies in the cookies, how original.

I've never tried white Texas sheetcake, only the chocolate version. Interesting!
