Hermit Cookies

Hermit Cookies
From: Anastasaeon

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup firm packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
~ 2 cups raisens
~ 1 cup nuts - I used walnuts, but sometimes use pecans or a mix of both

Erg. Well, standard cookie building rules apply! Stir your shortening and sugar together first, add eggs one at a time, throw your flour, baking powder, salt and spices into another bowl and mix well, add wet mix to dry, fold in the raisens and nuts, drop heaping spoonfuls onto a baking sheet (mine was ungreased, but they are nonstick pans), bake for ~10 mins at 350.

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
From: Dolores Reborn

Tilapia filets - Enough to cover the bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish. (They come in different sizes!) Overlap the fat sides over the thin sides, to try to make it an even thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
1 c fresh bread crumbs (2 slices white bread)
1/2 c grated parmesan
1 tbs chopped frsh parsley
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tbs olive oil

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Pulse the topping ingredients in a food processor. Spread the bread crumbs evenly over the fish. Bake at 400° for about 15-30 minutes, depending on thickness of filets, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
