Sewing Snacks

May 23rd, 2009. Filed under: Nancy's Recipe Box, Sewing on Saturday.

I have a couple fast and easy cookie recipes to share with you today.  The first was given to me years ago when I was a young mother with a toddler.  This was given to me by my neighbor Jo Anne C. when we lived in Columbus, IN. 

The second recipe was given to me by my grandmother later in my married life when I had progressed to two children.  Mom essentially taught me how to cook.  My dear mother was a working woman who preferred to have me out from under foot when she cooked.  My job was clean up detail after the meal.


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 1/2 oz pkg instant pudding
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.  Drop by teaspoon onto greased and floured cookie sheet.  Bake at 325 F for 10-12 minutes until firm.  Carefully remove onto waxed paper immediately.  May use chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla or lemon pudding.


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1 drop almond extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • peanut butter

Beat the egg whites until very stiff.  Gradually add the powdered sugar.  Add the extracts.  Roll out very thin on a floured board.  Spread with peanut butter.  Roll up and slice.
