    Hot Dog Cookies

    1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened

    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Red and green liquid food coloring

    3 tablespoons flaked coconut

    Yellow decorator's frosting

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in flour and vanilla. Remove 1 cup dough; add red food coloring and knead until well combined. Cover and refrigerate remaining dough for 1 hour.

    For hot dogs, divide red dough into 16 portions. Shape into 2 1/2-in. logs and round the ends; set aside.

    Divide plain dough into 16 portions. Shape into 3-in. logs; make a very deep lengthwise groove in each. Smooth edges to form buns.

    Place 3 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Place hot dogs in buns. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool.

    Meanwhile, for pickle relish, combine coconut and green food coloring in a resealable plastic bag; shake well. Sprinkle over hot dogs. For mustard, pipe a stripe of yellow frosting down the center of each.

    I don't have kids, but I have held onto this recipe for years because it just sounds like so much fun.  Please let me know if you try it.





    From the Detroit News by News Special Writer Geri Rinschler

    When Kids Really Get Cookin'


    1 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour

    ½ cup granulated sugar

    ½ cup brown sugar

    1 tsp salt

    4 Tbsp cocoa powder

    5 Tbsp butter, melted

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    1 tsp baking soda

    1 tsp white vinegar

    1 cup milk

    2/3 cup miniature marshmallows


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Take a 9 or 10-inch cake pan and put flour, sugars, salt, and cocoa right in the pan.  Mix carefully.  When you have stirred it very well, you will have the light brown moon sand.


    Take a spoon and make a big crater in the center so the bottom of the pan shows through.  Make a medium-sized crater elsewhere in the sand and another little crater on the other side. 


    Spoon baking soda into medium-sized crater.  Pour the melted butter into the large crater.  Pour the vanilla into the smallest crater. 


    Pour the vinegar into the medium-sized crater and watch how it becomes a bubbling foaming volcano.  When the volcano stops foaming, pour the milk over the moon sand and carefully mix everything together until it looks like smooth mud. 


    Scatter marshmallows over the surface.  Bake for around 35 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the cake's center comes out dry.  Let the cake cool in the pan.  Cut portions of moon and serve directly from baking dish.


    Serves 6 to 8
