In attempting to keep everyone confused on my posts this week…
We’re 3 days away from Christmas!!
Check out these amazing recipes I’ve found on Pinterest (what did I do with my life PP? Pre-Pinterest) and on some of my fave blogs:
Nutter Butter cookies
Vanilla Almond Bark
Orange Tic Tacs
Black Decorator Icing
- Melt the Almond Bark for 90 seconds.
- Use a spoon to help cover the cookies when dipping. The spoon helped to get them on the foil too, since I didn’t want fingerprints.
- Allow almond bark to set slightly before putting on the Tic Tacs or the M&Ms.
- For the icing, I just squirted some in a ziploc bag and cut the tip just a tiny, tiny bit.
- Let cool and enjoy!
PEANUT BUTTER RUDOLPH COOKIES
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Chocolate covered mini pretzels
- Preheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, milk, and vanilla; beat at medium speed until well blended.
- Add egg and beat until just blended.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture until just blended.
- Create 1-inch dough balls spaced about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Gently flatten the dough ball with your palm and pinch the bottom into a point. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
- Immediately remove the cookies from the oven, and press two chocolate-covered pretzels (reindeer’s antlers), two chocolate chips (reindeer’s eyes), and one red M&M (nose) into each Rudolph cookie.
- Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
