My favorite holiday recipe is Snowball Cookies. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

I am all about simplicity!!! So this isn't a very fancy recipe, but it's yummy!

Chocolate pretzel snaps-

A bag of square pretzel snaps

Unwrapped Hershey kisses

Bag of M&Ms

Heat oven to 200 degrees. On a cookie sheet, place unwrapped Hershey kiss on a pretzel snap. (As many as will fit!)

Place in oven and heat about 2 minutes, until the chocolate looks like it's melting a bit.

Take them out, and push one M&M on top of Hershey kiss so it squashes down a bit.

Let them cool, and enjoy!!!

I just made my pumpkin cheesecake bars last nite, the best EVER! I love them!!

Anonymous said...

Fabulous Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

1 (16 oz) pkg of pound cake mix (I like Betty, hers is the most moist)
2 TBSP butter, melted
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (16 oz) can of pumpkin
1/2 tsp of salt
3 eggs
4 tsp pumpkin spice
1 (14 oz) can condensed milk (Not evaporated! Trust me on this...)
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, 1 egg, butter, 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, until crumbly.
Press onto bottom of a 15"x10" pan and set aside

In a different large bowl (or the same, who am I to say?) beat cream cheese until it's fluffy. It will put up a fight, make sure you condition this arm well.

Gradually beat in condensed milk, then the 2 eggs, pumpkin, 2 tsp pumpkin spice, and salt. Mix it all well.

Pour over the crust, sprinkle the nuts on top.

Bake about 30 minutes (took me 50 the other day...just watch until they are set) or until they are set well.

The only time of year that I get to have stuffing is during the holidays. A couple years ago I tried a mushroom stuffing and have to say at this point it's my favorite.
beausdorei at gmail dot com

Anonymous said...

This is not sweets, but it's something I've made the past couple of years for holiday dinners.

Mushroom Stuffing
One and a half 1-pound loaves white bread, cut into cubes
1 1/2 bunches celery with leaves, coarsely chopped
3 sticks (12 ounces) unsalted
1 1/2 onions, chopped
One 10-ounce package sliced white mushrooms
1 tablespoon coarse salt
3 tablespoons poultry seasoning
2 large eggs, beaten with 2 tablespoons water

Preheat the oven to 250°. Scatter the bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake, tossing occasionally, until dried but not browned, about 40 minutes. Let cool. Increase the oven temperature to 350°.

Working in batches, pulse the celery in a food processor until chopped but not minced.

In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 10 minutes. Mix in the celery and mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Stir in the salt and poultry seasoning until thoroughly combined.

In a large bowl, toss the bread cubes with the beaten egg mixture. Add the vegetable mixture and toss until well combined.

Spoon the stuffing into 2 buttered 3-quart casserole dishes and bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

Peppermint Brittle for sure! I wait for it all year!

coriwestphal said...

Peppermint Brittle
1 package of almond bark
1 dozen candy canes (crushed)
red food color
Heat the almond bark until melted. Mix in almost all of the candy cane pieces, leaving an 1/8 cup or so to sprinkle on top. Mix thoroughly. Spread on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Drop a five to ten drops of the food color, evenly spread around the whole cookie sheet. Take a toothpick and drag the food color drops to make some red swirls in the almond bark. (I guess you could use any color but red is most festive) Then sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes evenly over the top. Let cool and break into manageable pieces. Then try not to eat too many or you'll have to make more!

Dilled green beans were the best for Thanksgiving this year.

Angela said...

So the Dilled Green Beans is not my recipe, but it is so good: From The Tasting Table: Dilly Beans
1 lb green beans, ends trimmed
2 lg garlic cloves, peeled and mashed
10 sprigs fresh dill
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dill seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds

In a covered pot, steam beans over boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Rinse them in cold water and drain. Place beans in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add the garlic, dill, red pepper. (I couldn't find the seeds.)

Marinade as follows:

1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup water
3 T. sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Combine the marinade ingredients in a glass, enamel or stainless steel saucepan. Bring them to a boil. Pour the hot marinade over the beans, and let the mixture cool. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the beans for 10 hours or longer. To serve, remove the beans from the marinade which may be used again to store the leftovers or make a new batch of beans.

Pumpkin Roll
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pumpkin puree
3 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Grease and flour a 9x13 inch jelly roll pan or cookie sheet (It helps to line with waxed or parchment paper).
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in pumpkin puree, eggs, and lemon juice. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread the mixture evenly.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
Lay a sheet of waxed paper on counter and sprinkle it with confectioner's sugar, and turn the cake onto the prep paper. Carefully roll the paper up (lengthwise) with the cake in it. Place the cake on a cooling rack and let it cool for 20 minutes.
Make the icing: In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and sugar with a wooden spoon or electric mixer.
When the cake has cooled 20 minutes, unroll it and spread icing onto it. Immediately re-roll and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut the cake in slices just before serving.

Green bean casserole: compliments any main course; easy to prepare; tastes delicious.

1. Green beans - any way you like them - fresh, cut, french style
2. Cream of mushroom soup - add liberally, just don't drown the beans
3. French fried onions - a tasteful topper

Mix green beans and soup and heat in oven to desired temperature.
Add French fried onions and let set for just a few minutes to marinate flavors. Serve and enjoy :)

1 2/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Bring to boil; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. (Time when mixture starts to "bubble" around edges of pan.) Remove from heat.

1 1/2 c. (16 med.) diced marshmallows
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 tsp. vanilla

Stir vigorously for 1 minute (or until marshmallows melt).
Pour into 8 inch square buttered pan.

Garnish with nuts, if desired.


Makes about 2 pounds.

I have a recipe for some chocolate peanut butter bonbons that are delish, but they take a long time to make, so I only do them up for the holidays. They go great in gift tins, too.


* 2/3 cup hot water
* 10 ounces Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix
* 18 ounces Peter Pan Creamy Peanut Butter
* 1/2 cup light corn syrup
* 3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar, divided
* 4 cups crushed vanilla wafers
* Baking Spray


Whisk together water and cocoa mix in large bowl until smooth. Stir in peanut butter and corn syrup. Add 2 cups confectioners' sugar; blend. Stir in crushed vanilla wafers.

Spray large piece of waxed paper with baking spray. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of chocolate mixture onto paper; set aside. Place remaining confectioners' sugar in shallow dish. Roll each piece of chocolate mixture in sugar and roll into balls.

Chill before serving. Store in an airtight container.
