Awhile ago I was the lucky winner of a bundle of 5" fabric squares from Annett of KnettyCraft. I thought quite seriously about making a quilt from them (but I suspect you all know how I feel about making sane quilts!!)...so....(with a vote of thanks to my friend MEK for the suggestion)....
This will be included in with another Christmas gift. Thank you Annett!!
And, remember yesterday I told you about my steering clear of the kitchen whilst flour and raisins and 'goo' were being thrown about? Well, here is the result...
Butter tarts by Jack.
Refrigerator cookies by MA.
(Recipe can be found HERE)
And several little tins of these....
Would you like the recipe for how to make the candies? SO simple. SO good!!!
MEK's MOST EXCELLENT CANDIES
- A bunch of square pretzels (they look sort of like an
oversized Shreddie cereal, probably available at your
local bulk food store)
- A package (or 6, depending on how many you
want to make...lol) of Rolo Candies
(they come in rolls of 10 where you buy
- a bunch of half pecans (again, quantity
depends on how many you want to make).
Preheat oven to 200. Place pretzels onto
cookie sheet and top each with a Rolo candy.
Place in oven for about 2 mins (or until the
tops turn shiny)
Remove from oven and immediately
press a pecan half on top.
Refrigerate til set.
(oh yeah - and taste test a few before refrigerating -
just to be sure they're fit for gift giving).
Go back to store and get more supplies
because you've already eaten them all
and don't have any left for giving.
(Thanks MEK for the recipe!)
Today your quote is from Dr. Seuss.... "It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!...Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas ," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas....perhaps....means a little bit more!"
