Cranberry Relish

Grind 1 lb. frozen raw cranberries, 2 large cored apples, 1 large whole orange omitting the seeds.

1 medium can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

3/4 C. sugar
1 8 oz. warm cream cheese

Then add in the mixer
1 10 oz. frozen strawberries (thawed)
1 can crushed pineapple (15 oz.)
2 chopped bananas (substitute chopped fresh strawberries if bananas aren't wanted)
1 C. chopped nuts

Mix well and fold in 10 oz cool whip and put in a 9 X 13 pan. Cover with foil and freeze. Take out of freezer 30 minutes before serving so it will cut in squares. Cut the whole pan into squares. Refreeze what is not used for later use.

Chris's WONDERFUL Cinnamon Rolls.

Place the following ingredients in a pan
2 Cups water
1/2 C. shortening
1 1/2 t. salt
1 C sugar
bring to a boil and then cool

Move to a large metal bowl

Add to cooled mixture
6 cups flour
2 eggs
1 pkg. dry yeast

Do not knead

I begin this process around 3 PM

When all ingredients are in the large metal bowl, let rise until double.

Punch down (around 6 PM)
let rise until double again (about 9 PM)

Punch down and divide the dough into 2 equal portions and let rest 10 minutes.

Roll out one of the portions on a floured board approximately 12" by 18".

Spread softened butter or margarine on the dough (approximately 2/3 of a stick is enough for the entire recipe)

Sprinkle generously with cinnamon (optional additions of brown sugar, raisins or nuts)

Roll up jelly roll style and cut into 12 equal parts.

Place on greased baking pans such as 8" round pans for 6 rolls or a 9 X 13 pan for 12 rolls.

Repeat for the other portion of dough

Let sit on the countertop overnight to rise. Bake in the morning at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Recipe makes 2 dozen and they freeze beautifully

Icing - powdered sugar, vanilla, water and a touch of vegetable oil. You can substitute concentrated orange juice for the water.
