Hash and Hearts

Ladybug will eat anything! Please not Alpo though! We smelled her breath, Sunshine cried at the stench. Little Mother ran as Ladybug chased her with a spoon of smelly goop. Dad bravely tried a spoonful and said it tasted quite good. Ladybug then revealed that she had switched the labels with a can of corned hash. "We shouldn't be so hasty to form our judgements on labels on the outside but focus on what is inside." Briz choked up as he read us a story about children helping a child with learning disabilities. We then had refreshments compliments of the Achievement Girls including Ladybug, who were here earlier today, learning how to give their families this same lesson tonight. Refreshments were perfect for new young cooks to make and tasted good enough that one is not enough. O.K. So I know you'll call for the recipe so here it is.

cookie cream cheese bars:
  • 2 packages refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (24 cookie size)
  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice and press 1 pkg of dough together on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Beat cream cheese, eggs and sugar together. Spread over cookie layer. Slice, squash and lay final cookie dough over the top. Bake for 50 minutes. Yumm. All the girls loved them, even the picky ones.


  1. WOW! What a way to teach a lesson on labels. Very memerable.

  2. I don't think corned hash should dress up like Alpo. It confusses people.

  3. So, you were in on the label switching right? Thanks for the recipe I will try it with the neighbor kids.
