So... a compilation, huh? Yep. Let me introduce myself. My name is Kelley and I am the mother of two wonderful children, Maddie and Spencer. We also have three crazy, but loveable dogs- Roxy, Norman and Penney. My husband, Allan is a fantastic, hardworking entrepreneur who makes sure we are all well taken care of.
Because we're always crazy busy, I'm always looking for things to make my life easier. That's where the compilation comes in. I scour the internet (especially Pinterest) and find things to not only entertain my kids, but also cut down on my cleaning time, my cooking time and last but not least, (if it ever happens), my work out time. Basically anything to make my life easier and more fun.

Brown Rim Cookies

Brown Rim Cookies are one of my absolute favorite cookies.  Perfect for dunking in coffee or tea, these cookies are lightly sweet, a mix between a shortbread and a butter cookie.  They get their name from the slight brown rim that developes around the edge as they are baking.  This recipe has been handed down in our family for generations.

Brown Rim Cookies

1 c. shortening
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. sugar
2 1/2 c. flour

Combine shortening, salt and vanilla.  Add sugar, then beaten eggs and beat thouroughly.  Add flour and mix well.  Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet. Let stand a few minutes, then flatten cookies with a glass covered with a damp cloth.  Bake in 375° oven for 8-10 minutes or until delicately browned.

These will make about 54 cookies if dropped by teaspoonful, about 36 cookies if dropped by tablespoonful.
