White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies

Cookie trays are the perfect dessert around the holidays because they can be made in advance and are easy to serve with little fanfare.  They are the star on the table of any gathering. My daughter-in-law, Brandy, adapted this recipe for White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies from my recipe for Chocolate Drizzled Cherry Delights .   She came up with the idea to add white chocolate chips and pecans to the cookie batter and drizzle white chocolate over them.  Turns out I really like these over the chocolate ones.   Since there are some in the family that prefers the chocolate ones, that's the reason you make both and let everyone choose for themselves. These White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies are soft and chewy with chunks of white chocolate, chopped candied cherries, and crunchy pecans in a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.   These cookies are so easy and quick to make.  Don't underestimate the flavor and richness of this holiday cookie.

Coconut Macaroons {An Easy and Tasty Recipe using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk}

Coconut Macaroons are an elegant cookie, yet easy and almost effortless to make.  This classic macaroon is made with a few ingredients, sweetened condensed milk, coconut, and egg whites.  Whisk everything together and scoop them out on a baking sheet.  How easy is that?  They are wonderfully delicious! The traditional macaroon has been around for eons.  I think it is my favorite, but who says you can't mess with perfection and place a chocolate kiss in the center to make Macaroon Kisses.  Or dip the bottom in chocolate and drizzle chocolate over the top, or even add a cherry in the center to make them look cute.  Hope you enjoy the recipe!   Merry Christmas !

Millionaire Fudge {Granny's Recipe Revisited}

Millionaire Fudge, the perfect old fashioned recipe that will make everyone want to go down memory lane for grandma's fudge recipes.  Millionaire Fudge is my favorite fudge of all time.  It is only the most incredibly scrumptious fudge you will ever eat. In the 1950s, marshmallow whip creme was introduced to fudge recipes by Mamie Eisenhower who changed the whole concept of how easy it is to make, not to mention how delicious.

Gingerbread Oreo Truffles {So Simple To Make ~ Yet So Decadent!}

Gingerbread Oreo Truffles , a mixture of crushed gingerbread Oreos and cream cheese, and then dipped in chocolate almond bark.  Simple to make and yet so decadent. My family is obsessed with Oreos, Double Stuffed ones to be exact.  This weekend we opened our first batch of the Gingerbread ones for this year.   Gingerbread Oreos  are seasonal, only coming out in the stores around the first of November.  As soon as I see them in the stores, the first thing I think about is making these decadent Gingerbread Oreo Truffles .
