Scripture Cookies

Several years ago I found a Family Home Evening Dessert packet online.  I printed it off and never used.  It's literally been sitting in my recipe folder (along with about a gazillion others) unused.  Well, I finally got all my recipes into a binder and organized so it's time to start using them. 

A couple weeks ago I pulled out this packet and found a recipe for Scripture Cookies.  It's actually a recipe for oatmeal cookies but the way you find the ingredients is in the scriptures.  I decided to do this for FHE and it was a big hit!  The kids loved looking for the next ingredient in the scriptures. 

I wish I could give credit to wherever this came from but sadly, I don't remember. 

In case you want to try this with your kids, here's the recipe for Scripture Cookies:

3/4 cup Psalms 55:21 (first clause)
1/3 cup 2 Nephi 26:25 (first clause)
1 1/2 cups Jeremiah was a bullfrog...  Whoops!  Sorry!  Jeremiah 6:20
2 large Isaiah 10:14
Read Proverbs 23:14 to see what to do with these first 4 ingredients.
Add remaining ingredients:
2 cups 1 Kings 4:22
1 tsp Song of Solomon 4:14
1 tsp D&C 101:39
1/2 tsp Matthew 13:33
3 cups D&C 89:17 (for the horse)
1 cup 1 Samuel 30:12 (second clause)

Answers in order:  butter, milk, sugar, eggs, flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, oats, raisins (we used chocolate chips... we like raisins but not in cookies).

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. 

Read Joseph Smith - History 1:37 (bake) and D&C 133:11 (watch) to find out what's next. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. 

I suppose you could use just about any oatmeal cookie recipe for this but this one actually turned out pretty good.  We really liked them anyway.
