Cookie Dough and Potatoes

Today the most delightful things happened! About three weeks ago, I made chocolate chip cookies. My mom told me that you could freeze some of the dough already in balls and then cook it immediately from the oven--so if you just want one or two cookies, you can do that. I thought I had eaten all of the cookies already, but I opened my freezer and was amazed to find two balls of dough still there! I then ate them raw. I thought about making more cookies, but as usual, I had no chocolate chips. It is hard to keep chocolate chips around ...

I feel like I should share a recipe, since that's what Sarah wants. Ooh, I have a good potato recipe I just got from my mom. It is quite tasty, much better than regular baked potatoes.

Crispy Baked Potatoes
Start to finish - 35 minutes

2 medium baking potatoes.
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt or garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Optional: Dairy sour cream, sour cream dip with chives, or plain yogurt

Scrub potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise.

In an 11x7 or 9x9 inch baking pan, combine melted margarine or butter, seasoned salt or garlic salt, and pepper.

Place potatoes, cut side down, in margarine or butter mixture. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or till tender and cut sides of potatoes are browned and crispy. Lift out with a spatula. If desired, serve with sour cream, sour cream dip, or yogurt. Serves 2.
