I par-boiled these for 10 to 12 minutes and then dusted them with flour after they had air dried . Then it was 15 minutes in a 400 oven, turn, and another 10 minutes. Dipped in a pair of sauces they went back in for about another 15.The darker sauce was honey and soy sauce in a sweet bbq sauce with garlic and ginger, the other sauce was honey, butter, hot sauce, and sweet chili sauce. The fries were air fried for 15 minutes at 350 and they could have stood more time or a higher temp but they worked OK.
In honor of National Cookie Day, my favorite Christmas cookie recipe:
I love spritz butter cookies. They’re tiny little, melt-in-your-mouth bites that go great with a cup of coffee. I didn’t realize how easy they were to make. It helped that a friend of a friend gifted me her all-metal, ratchet handled press. These are not easy to come by any more, at least not when I went looking. Most of the new ones are partially plastic and received tepid reviews, especially for durability and ease of use.
I love all the cute designs. Although my Christmas trees kind of look like trilobites, they taste great.

Front and center is a quesadilla that is a leftover on a technicality. We had cheeseburgers for dinner the day before yesterday and had a bit of ground beef thawed but not used for the burgers. The pizza we had a while back and froze the remainder. The glob to the left is that potato and ham casserole from last night. Still some of that left!
