I couldn't sleep last night. After doing some research I went on a dessert frenzy. (they have all since been distributed to family, neighbors & friends, spread the calories around...)

I made a fast and easy carrot cake (origal recipe was on Kraft. I didn't add the jello.) http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/recipedetail.htm?recipe_id=108283&e=email   

I added abt 2 1/4 cups finely shredded carrot. 1 cup peacans & used a mix of golden rasins & dried cranberries (thank you $Tree)

I also made a pudding pie (Leprechan Pie)...it turned out incredible. (Had to do a test run, I am going to make these for St. Patricks Day)

For the crust I used this recipe as a basis...     

I used shortbread rather than nilla wafers for the crust. The crust is awesome.
For the filling I mixed 2 packages of Pistashio Pudding with 1/2 the amount of milk suggested on the package.
I poured half of this into the pie. then mixed the remaining half with 2 cups cool whip & poured that on top of the pudding.

NOTE: My neighbor just called me, Her daughters had some of the pie after lunch, they said it would be even better with chocolate in it. (they are 3 & 5 I guess they haven't figured out that alomst EVERYTHING is better with chocolate in it!!) Next time I think I'll chop up a couple 3 Muskateer Bars (or a handfull of milk chocolate chips) & sprinkle over the crust as soon as it comes out of oven. I think they would melt a bit so they can be spread evenly on th ebottom.

I am also making Leprechan Chowder for my neices & nephews. I am using small gladware type containers & green plastic mini spoons (like the ones that come with an invividual serivng ice cream cup. Like Hoodies or Skippy Cups.)

... A note on soft cookies.
We found this out by mistake when making Valentine's Day Cookies.
We used the Pillbury Rolls of gingerbread cookie dough (I didn't even know thy made Gingerbread flavor. They were due to expire like a week later, $ Tree had them on sale two rolls for $1!!)
We baked them, but needed to cool them quickly so we let them sit till the pan was cool enough to handle then slid the whole pan in the freeezer for about 10 mins. The cookies stayed moist for days. I don't know if this is just whith that typle of dough  or all cookies???!!
