Lace Cookies

A recipe from the Ladies of Hyde Hall, Anne Logan’s Time

Here’s a confection to keep you warm in the cooling Autumn weather! #LadiesofHydeHall #Recipes

Bring a mixture of 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup light Karo syrup, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil while constantly stirring.

Remove from heat and add 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup chopped pecans while still warm.

Drop by scant 1/2 teaspoonfulls onto a foil-covered cookie sheet with 3 inches in between.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, and then cool for 3-4 minutes.

Peel off the foil and finish the cooling process on absorbent paper.

Cream Cheese Chicken

From The Ladies of Hyde Hall, Recipes from Anne Logan, Her Family and Friends

2 packages “Good Seasons” italian dressing

1 8 oz package cream cheese with onions and chives

4 boneless chicken breasts or 8 chicken breast tenders

1 can cream of celery soup

¼ cup butter


Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Dip the chicken in the dry dressing mix, coating both sides.  Rub it in a little and shake off excess.  Remember, it is quite salty, so take care not to use too much!  Brown the chicken in the butter, then place in a baking dish in one layer.  Dilute the cream of celery soup with about ½ can of water and combine with cream cheese.  Pour over the chicken.  Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes, until tender.  


“I found this recipe at a church holiday bazaar.  I tried it a couple of times for small dinner parties.  It is really very good, although I have altered the recipe a bit.”    Anne Clarke Logan
