There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Playdough Cookies

I have to remember to do this when the little one get big enough to eat cookies!

But I found a recipe that didn't have cream cheese......... Hopefully they will look about the same.
They are from a Better Homes and Garden Cookies for Kids Recipe book from 1983.  I found it here.

Makes about 6 cups of play dough.
2 cups (4 sticks) butter or margarine (use only margarine suited for baking)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
5 cups flour
Food coloring, if desired
→Beat softened butter or margarine with sugar until fluffy. Beat in almond extract. Add flour with mixer on low speed until mixture begins to come together. Divide dough and add food coloring as desired for making different shapes. Bake at 300 degrees on middle oven rack until done. (Cooking times may vary according to size of cookies.)
