OK, Cookies and Baking Done… Mostly

CREAMY EGGNOG FUDGE

horizontal-3-1

I went through and made everything BUT the Macaroons.  Seems I read that recipe wrong.  Needed a WHOLE bag of Coconut, and for some reason, Coconut is popular this year.

However, I did play with the Chocolate Covered Pretzels.  I use Ghirardelli chocolates for what I can.  I did the makeshift double broiler and mixed the white and dark chocolate.  The first time, I put them on a rack and poured the chocolate over them.

Didn’t work quite like I wanted.

So I did another pan and poured the pretzels in the pan, and then scooped them out with a slotted spoon.

Worked better.

Which ended up with the way I did them, dumped them in the pan, and used a fork to remove them, not bothering to tap forever.

It ended up with the best results.

I also made the eggnog fudge, and that stuff is holy cow good!!!!!!!!!!

It is not as sweet as normal fudge, but the eggnog flavor explodes on your tongue.  And it was super easy to make.  Just a lot of stirring, but the results are more than worth it.  I made the one pan and ended up with enough for three trays of cookie treats (with it being the main attraction on one of the plates) as well as two whole rows for my brother to have and gave M some little packets of four pieces to give out to people.

All that is left is to make Banana bread for my nephew, which I will make Thursday or Friday.

If you are still baking, happy baking!!!  If not, and need an emergency potluck treat, please visit our site.  We have a lot of recipes that we need to put on the new menus, but once we are done with the holidays, we will be working on them!

CREAMY EGGNOG FUDGE

I’ll be doing some other things, like chocolate-dipped pretzels, peanut butter-dipped pretzels, chocolate-dipped Mini Oreo’s (Which is a huge favorite!), Brownies (I’ll try to measure it out!!!), Cap’n Crunch Berries Bars (made just like Rice Crispies Treats, but with Cap’n Crunch berries cereal).  And Chocolate Chip Cookies, which for some reason I can never make.  Harder than heck recipes?  Piece of cake.  Basic cookie?  Heck no.  It NEVER turns out right, and each time something different.  Maybe I will try once again once I get my new ovens.

I also added this recipe when I came across it in my books:

TURTLE PUMPKIN PIE

It has been a HUGE hit with people when I make it for potlucks.  It’s simple, and tastes like you put hours of work into it!

As I mentioned, I am doing something different for the holidays and am making a Lasagna.   One of the things that is making me like it is the idea that I can make it the day before and reheat it Christmas Day.  It will depend since I will be busy Christmas Eve.  Either way it will taste awesome. Here are the recipes I will be using.  (The Lasagna has a picture step by step I pulled off of the site from an earlier post.)

Now I am off to relax so I can sleep hopefully at a reasonable time. If there are any other recipes you want to see, sound off in the comments!

Going to be Working..

Since it is the weekend before the Holidays, alot of people (including me) are going to be baking up a steam.

I will be going through adding my recipes into the site, as well as checking out what we have.

Also, this is the first year I am not going to do a turkey for Xmas, I am doing a large amount of Lasagna. Anyone else have an alternative to Christmas Dinner that is not Ham or Turkey?

Sound off in the comments!!!!

Until then, here are some tried and true recipes (And 2 I will be using myself this weekend) for cookies:

BROWNIE DROPS

Baking Time….

Image result for baking gif

Is coming up for me.  And while I won’t have all that help, I suspect I will be doing my share of rolling out stuff.

I will be working on making sure all my favorites are loaded up for cookies and so on.  I am even trying a Facebook Recipe I have shared on our Facebook Page.  (Eggnog Fudge)  I will try to have it up.

Do you guys have any favorites?  If you let me know, I will see if we have them, and put them on the new menu.  I know I have been falling back, but I have been super busy.  If it is not the holidays, me getting sick, I am actually trying to write stuff.

But if you tell me, or email it to us, I will get them up and work them into the menu.

I will also be publishing a list of the stuff I will be making later.  Maybe you guys will have some suggestions before time?
