Open all the cans and add with the stew meat to the crockpot. Cook on low all day.

This is a SUPER EASY recipe. It was given the name DUMP STEW years ago by the kids because all you do is open the cans and DUMP everything into the crockpot. SO EASY... yet SO GOOD!

Cookie Dessert

Cookie Dessert

2 lg Cool Whip
3 sleeves Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups Milk

Dip cookies in milk (do not not soak) and immediately put in 9x13 pan or large serving dish. Create a layer of cookies on the bottom of the pan. Add a layer of cool whip. Repeat layers of cookies and cool whip. Crush a few cookies and sprinkle on top of last layer of cool whip. Refrigerate for several hours before serving. 

A super easy dessert that kids can make. We brought this dessert to small group once and a friend insisted that it tasted too good to have the plain name of "Cookie Dessert". He said it should be called "Cookies in a Cloud".

Cookie Dessert is also a regular on Thursday nights each year at Clarkco for the Beckman Family Reunion.
