We know that Chanukah is all about the miracle of the oil that lasted for eight days, right? Well, we have a new miracle driving around our streets. And, just like the little bit of oil that kept on going, these electric/hybrid cars use much less gas than a regular car. Now that is not only a miracle, but also really smart.
Next time you are in the car, count the number of electric/hybrid cars you see on the road – look for a Toyota Prius or a Honda Insight. They pollute less, allowing us all to breathe a little easier.
Get out your Chanukah Cookie cutters!
You will need:
1 cup margarine
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Chanukah cookie cutters
Mix ingredients until smooth. Wrap in wax paper and chill for an hour. Roll out dough until 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 450F for six to eight minutes or until lightly browned. If you want to decorate with sprinkles, do that before you put them in the oven. If you would like to put frosting on, do that after they have baked and cooled.
