    Hi. I feel funny doing an entire thread of things that are my favorites but I am going to do it. So, here goes!


    Here is a pie that I just recently made and it was so easy and so good.

    Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Pie

    8 oz Cream Cheese
    8 oz Cool Whip
    1 cup Peanut Butter
    1 cup Powdered Sugar
    1-Graham Cracker Crust

    Soften cream cheese. Blend cream cheese, cool whip, peanut butter and powdered sugar together. Pour into pie crust and chill till ready to serve.

    Haystack Cookies

    1/2 Cup Butter
    2 Cups Powdered Sugar
    1/4 Cup Milk
    1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
    1 Cup Peanut Butter
    3 Cups Oats
    1 Cup Coconut

    Mix milk, butter and sugar; bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla and peanut butter. Mix well, until peanut butter melts. Add coconut and oats. Drop onto cookie sheet.

    Note: You may add just a little more milk if you want them a tad bit more moist.

    This is a recipe that has been around for years! We use to eat these when we were kids in school.

    Wonderful Pineapple Dip

    16 oz Crushed and drained Pineapple
    1 small pkg Vanilla Instant Pudding
    8 oz Cream Cheese
    1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
    Chopped Pecans (optional)

    Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

    Serve with Graham Sticks, Fruit (grapes are terrific with this dip) or Ruffles plain potato chips.

    This is one of the best dips that I have ever had! It is so versatile too. The chips and dip are like a sweet/salty taste and the grapes with it are just AWESOME! Hope you like.

    I made this tonight and it was really good. I added the entire can of chicken broth I just felt like that would give it enough liquid. I used Velveeta Shells and cheese but didn't add the cheese until after I cooked it in the microwave. All 4 of the boys ate it up! It is a definate keeper!

    Thank you JX6 for this recipe. :0)

    Creamy Bacon Bites

    8 oz. cream cheese (if this isn't used for breakfast I like to use chive and onion)
    bacon cooked, drained, and crumbled
    8 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls

    Preheat oven to 350. Combine cheese and bacon. Separate crescent roll dough into 2 rectangles, press seams and perforations together with fingers to seal.
    Spread cream cheese mixture onto rectangles, roll up, starting with longest sides.
    Press seams together to seal, cut each roll into 16 slices, place cut side down on grease baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Hint-I usually use more bacon than this. I use a 1 lb package of field's thick slice bacon. :0)
