Don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for a slice of Susie Clark's Pecan Pie. And think I'll wash it down with a couple of Spritz Cookies and a nice warm hunk of Mystery Coffee Cake!

Spritz Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
3 egg yolks
2.5 cups flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract

Mix together. Spoon dough into cookie press. Press dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with colored sugar. Bake about 7 minutes at 400 degrees. Watch closely, so the cookies won't burn!

Mystery Coffee Cake

Step 1:
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Blend together with a fork and set aside.

Step 2:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1.5 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Cream shortening and sugar. Add egg. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, alternating with liquid. Spread half of the butter evenly in a greased and floured 8x8x2 pan. Sprinkle half the filling (Step 1) over the butter. Top with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining topping. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
Susie Clark's Pecan Pie
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 tbsp. butter
1 cup pecans (broken in pieces)
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat eggs well; mix with sugar. Add remaining ingredients and pour into an unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 or 50 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.

I'm still unsure about sharing my very favorite two recipes! They make everyone think that I'm incredibly wonderful and talented and envy my husband, but it's only because they truly have NO IDEA how fabulously easy they are! lol
