Christmas goodies ....

Jacquelyn and I started working on our Christmas goodies
last Sunday. Seems we don't have many days to bake so we
worked hard all day! Our reward.....we went out for dinner :)

We made peppermint bark, buckeyes, haystacks, chocolate spoons
and peanut butter fudge.

Then our next day of baking we did the Russian Tea cookies and sugar cookies.
New this year is the Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters
this was the winning recipe in the Pillsbury bake off......the winner
is from the county where we live

below Jacquelyn is dipping the spoons in chocolate
then we sprinkled them with crushed peppermint
some of them we drizzled white chocolate and then the others
we sprinkled crushed Heath candy bars
these are great for stirring up your hot chocolate

below is the cut up and baked pieces of Pillsbury pie crust for
the peanutty candy clusters

you just melt shortening, white chocolate, and peanut butter
together. Then you mix that with salted peanuts and heath bar pieces and then
very carefully add the baked pie crust pieces.
Drop by spoonful onto wax paper

We always have fun baking our Christmas goodies
Jacquelyn gives these as gifts to her co-workers
I give them to neighbors and friends as gifts
and try to keep enough around for us to enjoy too!!
