Layered Strawberry Cheesecake Bowl

I got this recipe from the Food and Family magazine, and here is the original recipe.

Layered Strawberry Cheesecake Bowl

3 cups sliced fresh Strawberries
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
2 cups thawed Whipped Topping, divided
2 cups frozen pound cake cubes (1 inch) (I used Angel food cake, and I didn't freeze it)
1 square Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Mix the Sugar and Strawberries and set back in fridge
Beat the Cream Cheese, add Milk and Pudding mix, the original recipe has you add 1-1/2 c of Whipped Topping, but unless you plan on eating within a day I wouldn't mix it in there. If it sits for very long the flavor goes bad. I left it out.
Put about half of the pudding mixture on bottom of bowl
Then add your pound cake, or in my case I tore up some pieces of Angel food cake
Layer the Strawberries on next
And then add the rest of the pudding mixture
You're supposed to melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the top. I tried to cheat and use hot fudge topping and it didn't work out so much. :-)
Top with whipped topping!

Sour Cream and Beef Cups

This is a recipe adapted from Country magazine, and the original recipe was turnovers but I turned them into cups. :)

Sour Cream and Beef Cups

1-1/2 c Flour
pinch Salt
1/2 c Shortening
1/2 c Sour cream

1/2-1 lb Ground Beef
Onion, finely chopped (I used Onion powder since I'm trying to minimize the heartburn lately)
1/4 c Mushrooms, chopped (I didn't put this in)
1/4 c Sour Cream
Salt and Pepper

Brown the meat with Onion.
Start on your dough by mixing the Flour and Shortening. I just used a fork.
Add Oregano, Salt and Pepper to the meat
Cut into the Flour, Shortening until it looks like this
Add Sour Cream to the meat
Add the Salt and Sour cream to the dough and mix some more. You can add Flour or Water to this depending what will make it easier to work with.
I just rolled the dough into a ball, flattened it, and then pressed it into a muffin pan.
Fill up with the Beef mixture.
Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned. Top with Cheese if you want

Applesauce Cookies

You usually either love these or hate them. I hadn't tried this particular recipe before, it was one of my Grandma's. Her recipe is actually for Apricot puree, but I used Applesauce.

Applesauce Cookies

1 c Margarine
2 c Sugar
2 Eggs
4 c Flour
1 t Cloves (ground)
1 t Cinnamon
1 t Nutmeg (I didn't put this in)
2 t Baking Soda
1 c Chocolate Chips (I put like 2 - 2.5 cups in)
2 c Applesauce or Apricot Puree
1/2 t Salt

Dissovle Soda in the puree or applesauce, mix all ingredients and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Margarine and Sugar
Beat and add the Eggs
Soda dissolving in the Applesauce
After everything is mixed together except Chocolate Chips
These will spread and look like pancakes, since I used Applesauce I probably should have put more Flour in.
Add Chocolate Chips, spoon out drops on pans and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
They still taste really good though. ;)
