Pecan Supremes

OH MY GOSH! I LOVE THESE!! I got them out of a "Mrs. Fields Cookie Book". Ya, It's phenomenal. I needed a little baking therapy, and decided on these. YUM!!

Pecan Supremes
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. quick oats
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
1 c. salted butter , softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. (4oz) chopped pecans
1 c. (6 oz) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, soda and oats. Mix well, set aside. In a large bowl, blend sugars with electric mixer. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste. Add eggs ad vanilla, beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the flour mix, pecans and choc. chips, and blend at low speed until combined, do not over mix. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 1.5 inches apart. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool, flat surface.

Better Than Sex Cake

Aaron requested this as his "Birthday" cake, even though it's over a week early. As you can tell from the pictures, he really thinks it's better than sex...just kidding (big) Kristen--his wife!

Better Than Sex Cake

1 pkg Devil's food cake mix

1 jar caramel ice cream topping

1 can sweetened condensed milk

cool whip

heath bar (crunched up)

bake cake as directed. After it comes out of the oven, poke about 40 holes in cake with the end of a wooden spoon. Pour caramel sauce over it, then the milk. Once it cools, top with cool whip and candy bar. Serve...ENJOY!
