Bibingka (Philippine Cake) The Fast Way
(Cruz) Sepulveda '91
Directions: Place all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Place in a prepared pan (greased and floured). Bake at 350* for 40 minutes. Use a 9x9x2 inch pan. You can use a metal or glass pan. I use glass when I bake mine. You can also sprinkle grated Edam cheese 5 minutes before the end of the cooking time.

Dad's Favorite Cookies
1 c soft butter
3 c brown sugar, packed
1 t vanilla
2 c sifted all-purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c flaked coconut
2 c quick-cooking rolled oats
Heat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheets. Beat butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla together until fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together into mixture and blend well. Stir in coconut and rolled oats. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets and flatten with a fork. Bake 10 mins. or until nicely browned and set. Cool until firm then lift off sheets and finish cooling on racks. Makes about 3 dozen large cookies. (I add about 1 c of raisins to mine.) Family favorite.

Sugar Cookies #2
Granny Rose's Sugar Cookies
2 cups sugar
Beat eggs, sugar, butter, sour cream.
Combine all dry ingredients.
Mix all ingredients and beat/mix until very well combined.
Refrigerate for 2 - 3 hours, until batter is stiff.
Roll out on floured surface -- flour rolling pin. Use cookie cutter. (I like the batter to be 3/8 inch thick or more, but I like the thicker, less crisp cookies.)
Bake in 350 degree oven until lightly brown.
Try different thickness and baking times to hit your favorite. We have beau coup cookies at Christmas and these are everyone's favorites every year.
