Red's Ultimate M & M Cookie-from Winco Bulk Bin

Since I love to get my flour, sugars and other items from Winco Bulk bin, I thought I would share a recipe from Winco too. I buy my mini M & M baking chips there too!

1 cup butter or margarine, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tp. vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/8 tsp. salt

12 oz. M & M baking chips

3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter & sugars until ligh & fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in M & M baking chips and nuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonsfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-13 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned & centers art still soft. Do not overbake. Cool one minute on cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks. Store in tightly

Calico Beans-Joanne

Calico Beans

1 30 oz. can of Pork and Beans (don't drain)
1 15 oz. can Kidney Beans (drain)
1 15 oz. can Butter Beans (drain)
1 package bacon chopped
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 medium chopped onion

3/4 cup catsup
3 Tablespoon Vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar

Brown onion, bacon and ground beef together then drain. Pour into 9 x 13 pan. Add beans into 9 x 13 pan and sauce on top of the beans, mix. Bake 350 for 45 minutes.

There have been times when I needed to double or triple this recipe for a group. It seems to work to double or triple the beans and sauce and there is still enough meat. It can also be added into the crock pot for a few hours. It does taste best in the oven, in my opinion.
