This dessert is absolutely fabulous. We make it for all the holidays. Hope you enjoy!
This recipe is very easy and quick. It turns out amazingly moist and delicious. Perfect for fall baking. Enjoy!
This is a quick and easy salad, but it has amazing flavor and is so delicious.
You will need
- Mozzarella pearls
- Basil, fresh or freeze dried
- Balsamic Vinegar glaze
In a large bowl add the mozzarella pearls and break apart. Cut the tomatoes into bite size pieces, I use the small tomatoes in different colors and cut in half. Then chop the basil if using fresh and sprinkle on the salad. Probably 4-5 leaves or if using dried 2 teaspoons. The basil is more to taste. If you like more add more, this is your salad.
Then drizzle with the balsamic glaze and mix. Enjoy!
This is one that really was a surprise. I love making Gingerbread. The smell of the dough, the smell throughout the house as it bakes both make it worth making. However most recipes it is just too spicy and crunchy.
This recipe is amazing. It turns out a fabulously soft and chewy cookie. Plus it has great flavor. It's not spicy at all. Recipe will post tomorrow.
I decided to try Eggnog Cookies tonight. Overall they are a very soft cookie and with the icing, they are just delectable!
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rum or rum extract
1/2 cup eggnog
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Combine butter and sugars in a bowl. Mix until fluffy. Add egg yolks one at a time. Then put in the vanilla, rum and eggnog.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add slowly mixing after each addition.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes of until lightly browned. Remove from pan and place on a cooling rack.
When cool spread frosting on the top and sprinkle with additional nutmeg. Enjoy!
1/2 cup butter softened
1 tsp rum or rum extract
3 tbsp egg nog
2-3 cups powdered sugar

Christmas cookie number one was this gorgeous and simple cookie. They were so easy to make and can be changed to whatever flavor you desire. Enjoy!
Jam Thumbprint Cookies
1 cup butter softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
Blend butter and sugar until fluffy. Add extract and mix until combined. Slowly add the flour. Mix just until combined.
Roll in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour. It needs to be chilled completely so they don't crack.
Roll dough in one inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet about two inches apart. Use a finger to make an indentation. Using a small spoon place about 1/4-1/2 tsp of desired jam into the indention.
Bake about 10-15 minutes. Remove when edges just begin to turn brown.
Remove to a cooling rack. Once cooled drizzle with glaze.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/4 tsp almond extract
2-4 tsp water
Mix until consistency is easy to drizzle. May need more or less water. Allow glaze to dry before stacking.
It's 11:30pm, I just finished putting the glaze on the last cookie. Tonight I made Thumprint cookies with jam.
I will share the recipe tomorrow. For now here are some pictures to tide you over.
Goodnight and as always Enjoy!
