Notes from Paula Deen’s Test Kitchen: Devil Drop Cookies are the consistency of a cake. Tip for making Devil Drops: put a gallon zip lock bag in a large measuring cup. Turn sides down over rim of cup. Spoon batter into zip lock bag. Seal after letting out air. Snip one corner at the bottom of zip lock bag. Using the bag as a pastry bag, squeeze out batter onto prepared cookie sheet, leaving several inches between because batter will spread while baking. This helps keep the size of the drops consistent.
i was wondering if you could share the recipe for the chiken/grape salad-the one that is pictured on the croissant above?

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition.
Blessings and Happy Easter!!
