I have never baked my own Christmas goodies since my MIL lives with us and she does all the baking. This has been fun and different since she always bakes the same recipes every year. I made the grinch cookies posted above. They are yummy!! I also made eggnog cookies, M&M oatmeal bars and mexican wedding cookies that I found on a website listed in another thread. I still have to do the reindeer noses, saltine toffee candy, praline pecans and cranberries, almost almond joy bars, eggnog bundt cake, holiday eggnog bread, and applesauce cake. I found all these recipes on the same website. Actually, I think it was more of a blog. The link is http://www.mommyskitchen.net/ and I found all the recipes on it.

I also got some recipes from mommy's kitchen and let me tell you that the saltine toffee candy is to DIE for!!! I used the Heath bits on top and it was so good I brought some to work and everyone liked it.

I made the Grinch cookies and Santa's bottom this morning. Santa's bottom was the favorite. Still going to do cookie dough truffles and the Church windows.

Ohhh how were the Almond Joy bars to make? How did they taste? My two favorite candy bars are Zero (which are very hard to find here) and Almond Joys. This could potentially become a problem, lol

I made ginger snaps and homemade marshmellows without high fructse corn syrup. Going to attempt hard tack tomorrow morning. Crochet a scarve, dish clothes and afghan, sewed a chair cushion and pillow. Not as much as usual, cant get into the season this year. Have the holiday blues I guess

I may have to steal a recipe or two we have ingredients for....mom decided to do baking yesterday and just about burnt everything. This new stove/oven is odd and I guess she didn't watch it enough after 1st batch.

Not very well Im afraid. Im not much of a baker but it seemed the chocolate was too thick. I added those little white chocolate thinning pieces, but still no luck getting it right. Any tips from anyone else on these?

I redid the almond joy bars- they turned out great! I froze the coconut bars then dipped them. Worked out much better!
