1. Jack And Jill Cookies

Base: Cookies
Number of Servings: 36

1 Cup(s) Butter or margarine, soft
3/4 Cup(s) Sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1 1/2 Cup(s) Sifted all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon(s) SODA
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 1/2 Cup(s) Quaker Oats, uncooked quick or old-fashioned

Beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture; blend well. Stir in oats. For ease in handling, chill dough about 1 hour. Shape to form 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cooky sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Insert flat wooden stick or wooden skewer into each. Bake in preheated moderate oven (375 F.) 10 to 12 minutes; cool. Frost cookies with confectioners' sugar frosting. Attach chocolate shot for hair and gumdrop pieces for eyes, nose and mouth. For girl cookies, pipe a bow onto hair with thick frosting. Tie a ribbon bow onto stick for boy's bow tie. When frosting is set, insert sticks into large gumdrops so that cookies stand up.

2. Jacket Potatoes

2 Desiree potatoes, 8-10 oz
A little olive oil
Rock salt, crushed
A little butter
Salt and freshly-milled
Black pepper

Preheat oven to 190c/375f/Gas

1 Wash the potatoes and dry thoroughly using a cloth, leave them aside to dry as much as possible. If you're using ready-washed potatoes you needn't do this, as high heat will purify them.

2 Prick the skins a few times with a fork, then put a few drops of olive oil over each one and rub it all over the skin. After that, rub in some crushed salt, this will draw out the moisture from the skin and, together with the oil, provide more crunchiness.

3 Place the potatoes straight on to the centre shelf of the oven and let them bake for 1 3/4-2 hours, or until the skins are very crisp.

4 When you are ready to serve, slit each potato in half lengthways and top with the butter and seasoning. Serve immediately because, after you remove jacket potatoes from the oven, they lose their crispness very quickly.

3. Jacqueline Kennedy's Potatoes Rissole

4 Potatoes
2 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter
1/4 Cup(s) Flat leaf parsley, chopped

Using a vegetable baller, scoop out pieces of potato about the size of hazelnuts. Keep covered with cold water until ready to cook. Drain the potato balls on a paper towel. Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the potato balls and saute until they start to brown, about 12-15 minutes. Add the butter and saute an additional 4-5 minutes. Toss with chopped parsley and serve.
