A Cup ‘O, Cup ‘O…times ten…and BOOM, Ten Cup Cookies!

Remember Dolly Parton telling how to make a fruit cocktail dump cake in Steel Magnolia’s?

Hmmm…well this post isn’t about that!! But in the future I will do a…

Cup ‘O, Cup ‘O, Cup ‘O post on that yummy cake and share some photos of those beautiful Magnolia trees in bloom.

Nope…this post is about Ten Cup Cookies. Delicious cookies! I think of these delights as a ‘my cup runneth over’ cookie and they are a new fave at our home!

A Cup 'O, Cup 'O.....
A Cup ‘O, Cup ‘O…..

I have been absent for a while…again! Life has been quite full for several months. It hasn’t been so ‘Easy like Sunday Morning’ for some time now! It has been full…ten cups full and more!

One constant in life is change! I’ve had a change of job and industry which has required a lot of learning. A LOT of learning! My cup runneth over! I remind myself to see all of this change in that very light. I am thankful! I am grateful!

I am on a crazy diet now also…ANOTHER diet! My love for baking has been shelved for a while. But…oh no…where are the goodies? Ah…I made some of Poppy’s faves and some of mine as well…before diet day one! So…I have pictures. What…am I crazy you say? Hmm…yes, must be! Looking at these pictures makes me yearn for these scrumptious cookies! Ah well…can’t have my cake AND eat it too! Wait…what about a cookie?

I have made these Ten Cup Cookies several times now for Poppy and I and for co-workers and their families. They are addictive! Everybody loves them!

One of my fellow bloggers, Christie McGuire, awarded me this great Cookbook…Southern Living Homestyle Cookbook. This recipe was a definite winner and so…I share!

Remember…life gets full of…life! Enjoy it…each and every ten cup cookie at a time!

And when life gets scary…’high tail it and run!’

High Tail It!

I never quite knew what that expression meant or where it came from. After seeing White Tail Deer on our property…I have a good idea! When they sense danger (life gets scary) they raise their tails and run. They ‘high tail it’ outta here!

Until we meet again…

may your cup runneth over

and remember to ‘high tail it’ and run…when life gets scary!

Wishing you a day that is blessed simply…

and simply blessed!


Take a bite...and high tail it!
Take a bite…and high tail it!
