16: Ingredients: 5 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1 pound margarine 1 cup white sugar 1 cup light brown sugar 3 eggs 1 cup chopped nuts Directions: 1. In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon together until evenly blended; set aside. Beat the margarine, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the margarine mixture before adding the next. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chopped nuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. 2. Scrape the dough onto a sheet of waxed paper, and form into a log. Roll tightly in the waxed paper, and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours. 3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray baking sheets with cooking spray. 4. Unwrap the dough, and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place the cookies onto baking sheets, spaced 1-inch apart. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. (Closest complete recipe I could find that matched this recipe card.) | IceBox Cookies

24: by Honey McGowen (recorded by Cathleen McGowen Howard) (This makes a very large pot of Gumbo.) 2.5 lb. Shrimp (or more) Crab legs (if you have them) Oysters 2 jars (or more if you like) Flour Duck Fat (was Honey's favorite but Bacon Grease, or Veg oil will work if necessary) 4 onion 1 bunch of green onion 4 green bell pepper 2 stalks celery Okra if you like 2 cans Tomato Sauce (you can mix in one can of chopped tomatoes) 1-2 Tbls. Lea & Perrin Worcestershire Sauce Salt - ample! Crab Boil: Bag for 5 min or 2 tsp of liquid Filé if you like DIRECTIONS: 1) Make roux from grease. I cover bottom of skillet with approx. 1/4" of oil, heat, then add about the same amount of flour. Saute', stirring almost constantly until a DARK BROWN COLOR. Don't burn it, but go darker than you would normally think. 3) Chop onion; green onion; bell pepper; celery (not too much celery) into small pieces 4) Add to roux, saute' for a bit, then cover and let wilt. 5) Add Shrimp and cook till pink. 6) Transfer to large pot. (if you don't have a good skillet to make roux in you can just make it all in your soup pot.) 7) Add water, Tomato Sauce & Crab legs if you are using them. 8) Season with Salt, Lea & Perrin, and Filé if you like it. People can use Filé in individual bowls if you don't want to cook with it. 9) Simmer a LONG time. 10) Add Oysters 15 min before serving Serve over rice & with Tabasco. | Honey's Seafood Gumbo
