Here you go - I just thought this morning, why not give it a try?
They are good and both kids that came over for lunch approved!

1 c. crisco shortening
1 c. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 bag of Brach's candy corn (the only brand I will buy) cut into pieces

Mix all together.  Stir in the candy corn.  Roll into walnut size balls and flatten on your baking sheet with a glass dipped in sugar.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Shredded Potatoes au Gratin!

MOVING stinks.  Just sayin.....Sorry I have been so neglectful.  We signed on our house last week.  Since then I have been trying to coordinate flooring guys, painters, appliances, carpet cleaners, etc., all while being 50 miles away and packing as well, and maitaining my part-time gig at Herbergers.  I haven't done much baking or cooking in the past month that is for sure and that is sad.  I am sick of eating out or on the fly.  Here is a recipe I came across the other day and its easy, quick and tasty!  If you don't have Ramekins - use a baking dish - no biggie.

Shredded Potatoes au Gratin
4 cups shredded hashbrowns, either refrigerated or frozen (if frozen, let thaw)
2 c. whipping cream or half-half
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c. sliced green onions
salt & pepper

Preheat your oven to 350.  Lightly spray 4 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.  Combine the ingredients in a large bowl - mixing well.  Spoon into the ramekins or baking dish.  Bake until bubbly and golden - about 35-40 minutes.
