Prosciutto Wrapped Pineapple Spears

When I know I’m going to indulge in a decadent weekend brunch with all of my favorite foods; I like to start the meal off with a bit of pineapple. I’ve heard that pineapple helps melt away belly fat, but don’t quote me on that, because it’s not really true!

However, since I like to *THINK* it may be true I’ve convinced myself that it’s a great way to kick off #BrunchWeek and that maybe all those other calories to follow won’t actually count. Ha! Ha!

I happen to love the flavor of peppermint during the holidays. However, neither of my sons are in favor of the flavor of peppermint. But, since I do all of the cooking and baking in the family, I get to choose what ingredients I add to my recipes. LOL Sorry, boys!

Every year for Christmas it’s tradition for me to make my family’s favorite sugar cookie.

This year I decided to mix things up a little so I used the same recipe (basically), and made pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies as a special surprise treat they didn’t see coming!
