Christmas Snowball Cookies

Bisquick Cheese & Sausage Balls

1 Cup butter or margarine 1 lb. Potters Hot Sausage
3/4 Cup confectioners powdered sugar 16 oz Shredded Longhorn or Colby Cheese
1/2 Teaspoon salt 3 Cups of Bisquick
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Mix thoroughly and spoon on to cookie sheet or you can make balls.  Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes. A favorite of Patrick Milton McGuire
2 Cups sifted all purpose flour
2 Cups finely chopped pecans
  Confectioners powdered sugar
Cream the butter and sugar.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Chill dough in refrigerator 2 hours.  Shape dough into 1/2 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 12 to 15 minutes.  While cookies are warm, roll in powdered sugar.  These may be made 2 weeks ahead.  The secret to this is making small little balls.

Below Recipes for dressing may be divided in half if you are only feeding 5 or 6 people and you don't want leftovers.  I usually just buy a Butterball boneless Turkey breast rather than fool with the big turkey and carcass.

Cornbread for Dressing

4  Cups Cornmeal
1/3 Cup Sugar
4 Rounded Teaspoons baking powder
1 Teaspoon Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
4 Raw Eggs
1 Quart of Buttermilk

Just mix up and bake at 350 degrees approximately 35 to 40 minutes.  I always melt a little bacon grease in a cast iron skillet and pour cornbread mix into hot grease and put in oven.

Gravy for Dressing and Turkey or chickenI always make a lot of gravy.  I don't use giblets as the boys never did like the liver etc. in it.  When you make the gravy the amount of broth or liquid determines how much you make.   I usually buy 5 or 6 chicken legs and boil,  debone, and tear up with fingers.  Add 8 cans of broth, 1 stick of butter or margarine.

To thicken I use a Tupperware shaker with 1/2 cup of broth and probably 1/2 cup of flour.  Add to hot liquid with chicken and broth in it.  Add slowly and stir like crazy so it won't lump up.  You have to keep stirring to keep it from scorching or sticking.  It takes about 1/2 hour over medium heat.  If you still don't have it thick enough add some more flour made into liquid with broth. 


  Cornbread crumbled up
5 Slices of white bread (layout and let harden)
1/4 Box smashed up crackers (1 lb. box) Kris pie
6 Hardboiled eggs (chopped)
4 Cups of chopped celery
5 Eggs (raw)
1 Medium onion (chopped)
1 Teaspoons of salt (salt to taste)
1 Teaspoon of black pepper (to taste)
3 rounded to 6 Teaspoons of Sage (to taste)
6 Cans of Chicken broth
3 Cups of water
2 Stick of butter or margarine melted 

Bake at 350 degrees or until the liquid is baked down.  Approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  Since I don't have an exact recipe here is what to look for.  Always salt and pepper to taste.  The quantities given are normally under what is required.  On sage it depends on how old it is and whether it is rubbed or ground.  Ground sage is usually stronger than rubbed.  When you can slightly taste the sage in the mix it is usually enough.  Better less than too much.  As far is the liquid goes, you want enough liquid before cooking to be the consistency of pancake batter.  Kinda soupy.  It is always drier the second day so don't cook all of the moisture out. I just use Swansons Chicken broth, but not the new seasoned one.  Just try the original or fat free.


Cheese Roll

12 oz. Cheddar Cheese (room temperature)
8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup finely grated pecans
Garlic Salt (to taste)
Red Pepper about 2 teaspoons

Mix all together, form rolls, sprinkle with chili powder (I prefer) red pepper.  Wrap in foil & chill.  Serve with Ritz Crackers

Spanish Corn Bread

1 Cup Corn Meal
1/2  tsp Salt
1/2  tsp Soda
3/4  Cup Milk or Buttermilk
2 eggs
1/4  Cup shortening (optional) I usually use a little bacon grease in bottom of pan. I use more cheese which also adds grease
1  Medium chopped Onion
1  Small can 8 1/2 oz. of cream style Corn
16 oz.   grated cheddar cheese
1   small can chopped green chiles

Mix all ingredients except cheese and chiles.  Spread 1/2 of batter in cake pan.  Cover with chilies and 1/2 of cheese.  Add remaining batter and cover top with remaining cheese.  Bake 40 or 45 minutes at 350

Next add drained raisins and pecans as you stir in the flour mixture.  Bake from 30 to 40 minutes.  About 350 degrees.  As soon as a toothpick comes out clean take out of oven.  It will still cook a little after it comes out of oven.
