Today’s Homemade Candy Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings is for those of us who enjoy giving homemade gifts […]
For me, these Fried Rosette Snowflake Cookies bring back fond memories of when I was growing up along with my older sister and my twin brother. These cookies were also a favorite of my dad’s, so whenever I think of my dad and Christmas I can’t help but think of these cookies!
Even if you have traditional cookie recipes, you make every year; it’s always fun to add some new ones to the repertoire. Especially if you’re giving them as gifts, hosting cookie exchange parties, or dropping a big box of homemade cookies off at a local shelter. Christmas cookies are like a warm hug filled with love that brings smiles to people’s faces, and what could be better than that?
Surprise!! Not only are these Holly Berry Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes delicious and easy to make, but they also have a surprise center (yes, you may call it a gift) that adds a fun and unexpected touch, that everyone will enjoy!
If you have time to add these Christmas Cream Cheese Sprinkle Cookies to your holiday baking list, I highly recommend doing so. They’re super simple to make and kids will have fun rolling them in the sprinkles before baking.
I developed this easy recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust after I’d rewritten and remade my great grandmother’s recipe for Fence Cake (aka applesauce cake).
Since the cookie crust for great grandma Patterson’s Fence Cake is ‘almost’ my favorite part of that particular dessert (not that I could choose), I wanted to use it again in another dessert recipe. And this is the story of how these delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust were born.
I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.
I’m here to show you just how easy this Rustic Pilgrim Pumpkin Pie is to make. If you’ve never roasted a pumpkin in order to make a pumpkin pie, you’re missing out on part of the fun. If you’ve never served your pumpkin pie in an actual pumpkin (as the pilgrims did), then we need to get busy baking!
Eye would be remiss if eye didn’t share with you just how easy it is to make these Homemade Royal Icing Eyeballs. After all, you can’t have a spooky Halloween treat (in my opinion) without some glaring eyeballs watching your every move!
Of course, you can always purchase candy eyeballs at the store, but those only come in one size and shape, as if one size really fits all. Ha! By making your own candy eyeballs, you can tailor them to your specific needs and vision.
If hindsight really is 20/20, then I’m here to help you envision what’s possible!
The impact this Spooky Swiss Meringue Skull will have when you set him out on the table will be one […]
