Irish
Leek Potato Soup
(as shown on previous page)
4 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
3 large leeks trimmed, sliced, thoroughly rinsed and dried
2 russet potatoes peeled and diced
3 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup frozen peas
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Sour cream thinned with milk
Fresh chives for garnish, if desired
Melt the butter in a large soup pot and saute the onion, leeks and potatoes
for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add the stock to the pan and bring up to a simmer. Cover, turn down the
heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until everything is tender. Add
the peas to the pot just long enough to defrost them.
Working in two batches, process the soup until it reaches the desired
consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve piping hot with a
drizzle of sour cream and a sprinkle of chives.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 box devil's-food cake mix
1 cup powdered sugar
1 bag chocolate-mint candy pieces, broken into bits for topping
1 cup green mint chips for drizzle, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl or stand mixer, blend together cream
cheese and butter until smooth. Add egg and beat until smooth. Add cake
mix and blend until combined. Scoop heaped tablespoons of dough or the
size of a medium cookie scoop and round into balls. Roll in powdered sugar
to coat. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes until
puffed and cracked but still quite soft.
Leaving cookies on cookie sheet, place chocolate-mint candy pieces into

mint chips or candy pieces and drizzle over cookies.
