The snowflake/vanilla candle I gave as Christmas presents to family and friends.
Ha! I bought this singing Elmo for my son Aaron, he just loves it and pushes the button to have Elmo Sing all the time. Thought it would make a good greeting for the party. What do you think?
Ok, now time for some serious cookie posts. I hope you have a sweet tooth because the next images will either make you sick....or make your tummy growl. Ha!
First, My favorite easy Spritz cookies. Love this cookie. It's fast, easy and makes alot of cookies.
I make these from scratch with a real easy recipe. This year I put a ribbon of cream cheese in the middle. YUM!
You can only eat these babies when your craving some SERIOUS chocolate cravings. Very rich but tasty.
You really can't just eat one so help yourself to as many as you want.
Below is the ingredients for the brownies. Very simple brownie mix. The hardest part to these brownies is the dipping them in chocolate for the final step. Very messy!
You know you want one more.........go ahead and take as many as your tummy can handle! Try some coffee/or tea with your brownie. Maybe milk would be a better choice since these are so rich.
Help yourself next to some frosted sugar cookies. These are made with a basic sugar cookie dough and frosted with Powdered sugar frosting.
I had alot of fun decorating these cookies. I always make my frosting a bit too thin.....it's so hard to get the consistency right. Anyway, I had fun with the frosting as you can see.
I just love making these tasty classic cookie. It's become a tradition in our home. It's almost as fun decorating these cookies as it is to eat them.
Do you see Aaron's cookie? My son Aaron helped make a few cookies. He is a great little helper and he did such a good job on his cookie.
The dough is easy but I usually double it and make these twice the size. I like a serious cookie with my coffee and this revised dipped vanilla is the way to go.
Loaded with yummy walnuts or pecans. I dip these half in chocolate and there good to go. These are the best cookie to compliment a cup of coffee.
Well, sorry the loaded post of treats. I hope I didn't make you too FULL for dinner now. Ha! I hope you enjoyed your treats while listening to the singing Elmo. I hope everyone is ready for Christmas as it's onto the Christmas Count down already. Our stockings are hung and are ready.
If you want more than just treats................I have a post on our holiday home decor a couple post down(Dec. 12th). All our images of our holiday home can be found on that post.
I also wanted to share with you the post from last year..............on Christmas. Thought I would share what we did on our Christmas Day. You will want to go check it out just for the holiday dinner photo. YUM! The link can be found here: Our Christmas Day 2006.
One more thing, my cards are about ready to send out.......here is a peak at the collage I picked out from Shutterfly.com. Alot of photos you have seen on the blog. I guess you can tell I like the candles photos....ha...used them in my holiday card too.
