In Response to Re: New cookie recipe:
Fran -- THANK YOU!! Thanks for that lovely photo of the basket full of cookies. What a great idea. I'll be taking a load of cookies to my church's Easter dinner. I always put my cookies in a giant plastic bowl or just load a 9x13 alumnium cake pan. Now, thanks to your great little photo I'm going to be looking for a great big Easter basket. I'll line that with plastic wrap, fill it with cookies and add a giant bow on the side. Won't that be nice? Now I have to start looking for a basket. Next Sunday night we're having a celebration for a young man's graduation. Yesterday, in my drug store, I found a h uge , bright red, semi-clear plastic bowl. It's price tag was $17.99 and had been marked down over and over to $3 !!

So glad the photo gave you an idea for Easter, you can use the basket all year by changing the ribbon & even using a napkin for the liner in different colors. If you have any $ stores near by, check them out. Several years ago I found some nice wicker basket for $1.00 & I spray painted the outside (one son has 4 kids & I wanted each to have their favorite color). I made each kid a small goodie basket for Easter & then told them to use the baskets for their crayons etc. they really liked them(3 were boys) I was told that 1 basket held matchbox cars.
