Frivolous Friday

Though I doubt if we will have much of a snack Super Bowl Sunday we will use these yummy recipes another time, will always be a hit with a gang. I know the Super Bowl is this Sunday, many wait all year for this, it is one Sunday, if I am well enough by then I will be in the house of the lord, not in front of a TV watching men pounding and bouncing off each other over a little football. LOL I like one game a year, that is the game of Florida VS Georgia, it is a good rival game, and our team is the Gators, we are Florida transplants here in Georgia so our team is forever in our heart. So any how, here are a couple quick good recipes for you to use.  
Sausage Croissants

1 pounds sausage, cooked*
(any flavor desired - i.e. hot, mild, etc.)

2 cans crescent rolls
16 ounces cream cheese

Press the one can of the crescent rolls together at the seams in a jellyroll pan. Mix cooked sausage with

cream cheese and place on crescent roll dough. Put second layer of crescent rolls pressed together
on top (this is easy if placed on wax paper and pressed together at the seams and then flip it on top of the jellyroll pan). Bake as crescent
roll packaging directs. Cut into small wedges with a pizza cutter.
Flourless Double-Chocolate Pecan Cookies



Makes 12

3 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder (spooned and leveled)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (or other type of nut)
4 large egg whites, room temperature


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa, and salt. Stir in chocolate and pecans. Add egg whites and stir just until incorporated (do not overmix).

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets. Bake until cookie tops are dry and crackled, about 25 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer sheets to wire racks and let cookies cool completely. (To store, keep in an airtight container, up to 3 days.)  If you back on a cookie sheet, they run from the spraying of sheet, best to follow the directions, they are so good.

Thank you for the croissant recipe! Since our church or my son's church don't hold services on Sunday evenings, my son will likely be over to watch the game and this will be a yummy treat for him. Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Barbara, The croissants sound wonderful... We can have them at ANY time --not just on Super Bowl Sunday.

I will be watching the Super Bowl--and even though none of my teams will be playing, I always enjoy it. Actually--I just love sports, including football.

I don't have to be in a church building to feel God's presence. God is with me in my home also.
