Christmas Cookies

22 Dec

One thing I love about being in the United Sates is having lots of yummy ingredients for baking. Butterscotch chips, condensed milk, marshmallows, chocolate chunks, sprinkles, peanut butter . . .  I am not a talented baker but I do enjoy attempting new recipes.  Here  are two I good ones for Christmas.

Snowmen Cookies

Snowmen Cookies

These little guys require no oven.  Thanks goodness I don’t need to worry about burning them.  You simply dip Nutter Butter cookies into almond bark.  Use M&Ms and Tic Tacs for decorating.

These cookies taste like the holidays. Mine aren’t as perfectly round as the ones from the recipe.  But I’m no professional and I’m just impressed that nothing was burnt.  We did have a small oven fire earlier in the week.  It’s not the holidays if something doesn’t start on fire.  Isn’t that a saying?



Willy Wonka and THE TREE

18 Dec

We’re in the USA! Willy Wonka has now crossed the Atlantic Ocean five times in his five short months of life.  I didn’t take my first international trip until my senior year in high school.  Here we are enjoying our Christmas tree.  Look at that adorable vest and baby boy.
