Well, you COULD buy some scales Alternatively, 3 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup butter and 1/3 cup packed brown sugar should be about right. I got a great conversion table from bellaonline.org (its getting a bit battered now!) which I use a lot.

Another new one to add!

Those Pretzel Thingys
50 small pretzel twists
50 pieces rollo candies
50 pieces whole pecans or walnuts

Place pretzel pieces on a baking sheet.
Top with one Rollo candy.
Place in a warm (250 degrees) oven to just let the Rollo candy melt on top of the pretzel to hold it in place.
Remove from oven and place a pecan piece on top.
Let cool and harden.

I have a bunch that we really like such as:

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cookies
Monster cookies
Snickerdoodles

= = = = = = = = = =
These are just terrific if you like citrus like we do!

Luscious Lemon Snaps

2½ c all-purpose flour
1½ c white sugar
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 Tbl lemon zest
¾ c vegetable oil
½ c fresh lemon juice
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt & lemon zest. Make a well in center & fill it with oil, lemon juice & vanilla. Stir until it forms a dough. Or: Put everything into the food processor & blend until dough forms.
Drop by teaspoonfuls ~ 2” apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Edges should be golden brown. For a softer cookie, bake for only 7 minutes. Cool on racks & store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 dozen

= = = = = = = =
These are really good too, but sweeter than the snaps (obviously because of the chocolate) so I prefer the snaps.

Lemon Kiss Cookies

½ c Butter
¾ c Sugar
3 tbl Lemon juice
2¾ c Flour
1½ c Almonds, chopped
14 oz chocolate kisses
Powdered Sugar
1 tbl Shortening
½ c Chocolate chips

In large bowl beat butter, sugar & lemon juice until light & fluffy. Add flour & almonds; beat at slow speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape a tablespoon of dough around each chocolate kiss, cover completely. Roll in hand to form ball. Place on ungreased cookie sheet & bake for 8-12 minutes or until set & the edges are lightly, golden brown. Cool for a minute then remove from cookie sheet, cool completely. Lightly dust cookies with powdered sugar.
In small pan, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over each cookie.

= = = = = = = =
These are a LOT of work, but really, really good!

Cry Baby Cookies

1 c brown sugar
½ c shortening
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbl boiling water
1 c molasses
1 Tbl ginger
1 Tbl cinnamon
1 c strong coffee
flour (sorry - it comes with no set amount...you just keep adding flour until you get a soft dough. But be forewarned...you may need a husband or teenager with muscles to mix in the final amounts. My mother ruined a mixer the first time she made these.)

Blend sugar & shortening. Dissolve baking soda in water & add to molasses, then combine with sugar/shortening. Add spices; mix well. Add boiling coffee. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. MIX BY HAND! Roll out ½” to ¾” thick. Cut in rounds. Bake in a quick oven 15 minutes. “Eat one & children cry for more; hence the name Cry Babies.” This recipe was handed down through someone’s family since George Washington’s time.

Posted this one on another thread

Chocolate Mints

¾ cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
1½ cups brown sugar, packed
2½ cups flour
2 Tablespoons water
1¼ teaspoons baking soda
1 pkg (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ teaspoon salt
Green chocolate mint wafers (Andes)

Heat butter, sugar and water in heave saucepan over low heat until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips and cook, stirring constantly until partially melted. Remove from heat and continue stirring until chocolate is completely melted. Pour into large mixing bowl and let stand 10 minutes to cool slightly. With mixer at medium speed, beat in eggs one at a time. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients, beating until just blended. Refrigerate about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with foil. Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately place mint on each hot cookie. Let soften, then swirl mint over cookies to frost. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

I don't mind we got the idea from a magazine, but be warned it was a little stress full... You have to get the antlers in ASAP after you take them out of the oven so they are secure when the cookie cools! We found 12 cookies per sheet was about the right amount. My mom did the antlers and I did the noses and eyes. Good luck!

Did you have any special way of breaking up the pretzels so they looked good as antlers?

Funny you should ask... We actually used sharp prunning shear thing to score them. My mom thought we could just break them, but that wasn't working out very well.

We just kind of cracked them with the sheers where we wanted them to break (2 spots) and then the third place we cut the piece usually broke off. It took a while to get the hang of it. We had a lot of broken pretzel pieces to eat...

If you are asking about specific locations for the breaks, I would have to get a pretzel in front of me to explain it. By the end I had the spots figured out, but I couldn't explain it without a diagram... I am a visual explainer/learner...
