Day at the Park with some new pals.

My husband and his group decided to have a get together at the local park today. Everyone brought goodies and I had a nice time meeting everyone. Here's what I brought!
Strawberry Shortcake Cookies and Pie Fries... Here's the recipe for the Pie Fries that I got off of Pinterest
Cut pie crust (or pie crust scraps) into strips with a fluted pastry wheel.
Brush with melted butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and suger.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Eat "as is" or dip into jam, pie filling or frosting:)

Now you've heard of Muddy Buddys/Puppy Chow... but have you heard of Muddy Buddy Cookies? Well get ready because I'm about to rock your world. I was going to make these to take today and share with everyone but I ran out of time and only ended up completely 3. Yet another recipe from Pinterest.
Ingredients FOR THE COOKIES:
2-½ cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
¼ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Nutmeg
2 sticks Butter,
Softened 1 cup SunButter (or Peanut Butter)
1 cup Brown Sugar ¾ cups Granulated Sugar
2 whole Eggs

1 stick Butter
2 cups Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Powdered Sugar, For Rolling

For the cookies:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth, and then add in the SunButter and beat until well-blended. Beat in the sugars and then the eggs, one at a time. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients. Shape into 1-1.5″ balls and place on your cookie sheet. Use a fork to make the crisscross pattern on the cookie. Bake about 12 minutes. Store cookies in an airtight container for at least 5 days. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

For the coating:
while the cookies are cooling, melt the stick of butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Stir until smooth, and then stir in the vanilla extract. After the cookies have cooled completely, dunk them in the chocolate. Then roll each of the cookies in the powdered sugar.
