Cheesy Pulled Turkey
Rose Wuoti

7-8 lb. whole turkey breast (can be frozen)
1 pkg. Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 lb. Velveeta Cheese – cubed
Place turkey in crock pot or oven pan and sprinkle onion soup mix over top.  Add about an inch or two of water to bottom of pot/pan.  Cook on low in crock pot or in a 325 degree oven covered with foil for 5-6 hours or until meat is falling off the bone.  Remove meat from bone and pick into shredded pieces.  Strain liquid and put back in pot.  Add cheese to liquid.  Be careful to keep heat very low and indirect (not on stove top).  Stir until melted.  Add meat back into the sauce and fold in gently so as not to break up meat any further.  Serve warm in buns.
Can be made ahead.
Keep in refrigerator for 1-2 days or freeze.

Cinnamon Butter Cookies

Adapted by Lyn Slade from a recipe in 

McCall’s Cookie Collection


3 c. flour                         ½ tsp. salt

1 tablespoon cinnamon      1 c. butter, room temp

½ c. brown sugar                 ¾ c. white sugar

         1 egg

With an electric mixer, cream butter with both sugars.
Add egg and beat until light and fluffy.
Add flour, salt, and cinnamon.
Beat until well combined.

On a well floured surface or pastry cloth, roll the dough out to an even 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness, and cut with cookie cutters.

Bake at 375° for 5-8 minutes depending on the size of the cookies. 
Cool on racks. Cookies freeze well.

This recipe benefits from using Saigon Cinnamon.
In fact all recipes are better with it.
It is worth the small increase in price for the heavenly layers of flavor in this cinnamon!

To make cookies that look like buttons;
Cut with a round cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheets.
Then find something in the kitchen that is 1/8 inch smaller than the cookie cutter, such as the lid of a spice bottle, press this object into the cookie to create the rim along the edge of the button.

Make holes in the button using a skewer if the buttons are small.
If the buttons are large (2 inches or so), then remove the dough for the holes by using a drinking straw as the hole cutter and throw the straw away when it's filled up with holes.
Stick with 2 holes per cookie button.
It's hard to get 4 holes perfectly lined up, and the button effect is just fine with 2 holes.

Cucumber Sandwiches
Beth Cardozo

2 cucumbers
1/3 cup mayonnaise/butter mixture chilled
(*see recipe below)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 loaf thin white bread (I use Pepperidge Farm)

Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthwise.  Remove the seeds and discard.  Then cut each half crosswise into very thin slices and transfer to a colander.  Add 1 teaspoon salt and toss to mix well.  Let the cucumber drain for at least 30 minutes, then rinse well under cold running water and dry thoroughly with paper towels.  Coarsely chop the dry cucumber.

Combine the cucumber with the *mayonnaise/butter mixture, chopped dill, ¼ teaspoon pepper and mix well.

Spread the cucumber mix on thin sliced bread and spread smooth. 
Top each with a slice of bread and press down gently. 
Trim the crusts and quarter each sandwich. 


*Mayonnaise/Butter Mixture for Cucumber Sandwiches

1 cup mayonnaise, 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened

Put the mayonnaise in the bowl of a food processor** fitted with the steel blade and start the machine.
Add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, and mix until smooth. 
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and chill.

**I use a small food processor, but you can mix with a portable electric mixer or by hand if the butter is soft enough.
