i fell on december 20 and broke my right humerus just below the shoulder, splintered a small place on the bone and have two fractures on the bones that hold the rotator cuff. so i am in major pain. i'm in a splint so i dont move the arm but did i mention i'm right handed. i can't do anything that takes two hands and just leaning forward causes more major pain.

i have a lot of new things happening for my customers for 2008 and a broken arm may slow me down but will not take me out

Heart Stopping Good Christmas Cookie Recipe

Here it is -- my recipe for "Heart Stopping Good Christmas Cookies"

Please read the whole recipe before starting

1. Start with a basic Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
2. Substitute oil with Butter Flavored Crisco that comes in a stick
3. Add double the nuts
4. Add double the chocolate chips
5. Stir together with your hands -- there should be very little dough -- just enough to stick the chocolate chips and nuts together.
6. Spoon out onto a cookie sheet and bake until done by the regular recipe temp and time. You do not want to over cook the cookies -- since there is so little dough, they don't take very long to bake.

I don't recommend that you eat these cookies more than once a year, that is why I call them Christmas Cookies. The Crisco that makes them so good is soooooooo bad for you Hence "Heart Stopping -- eat in moderation.
