Pecan Pie Bars
1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup chopped pecans or pecan halves
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350°F. Unroll dough and press in bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of a 9x13-inch pan. Firmly press perforations to seal. Bake 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Pour filling over partially baked crust. Bake 18 to 22 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour, and cut into bars.
This has become one of our traditional desserts at Thanksgiving.

First, brown your ground beef and drain completely.
Next, add refried beans, taco seasoning and about half a can of tomato sauce or tomato soup.
Mix together and scoop into taco shells, (stand them up in a casserole dish).
Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
Very easy to make, and the kids like to put them together, and eat them!

I have been making play dough for my daughter since she was a year old - she is now ten! It is easy to make! Here are two easy recipes.
1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
1 c. water
2 tsp. cream of tartar
Food coloring if you desire
Mix all ingredients except color in saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly. When the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and is not sticky, remove pan from heat. Knead dough add color if you desire. Let dough cool to room temperature before storing. Store in air-tight bags or small containers.
Kool-aid Play Dough
1 c. flour
1 pkg. unsweetened Kool-aid
2 T. cream of tartar
1 T. vegetable oil
1/4 c. salt
1 c water
Mix flour, salt, tarter and Kool-aid in saucepan. Add water and oil. Stir over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes. When mixture forms a ball, remove from pan. Knead until smooth. Cool to room temperature and store in air-tight bags or containers. KIDS ARE MORE LIKELY TO TRY TO EAT THIS FORM, SINCE IT HAS THE KOOL AID SMELL!
