    Holle's bake shop has officially opened for Christmas. Today I'm making chocolate chip and walnut cookies, pecan snowballs, peanut butter cookies, thumbprint cookies, cheese straws, and old-fashioned gingerbread.

      Sounds SO good!  Are you making gingerbread men??  I still have that to do, but I'm waiting for more kids to come home to help decorate them.

        Why you doing this to us Habee, haven't you tortured us enough with your recipe hubs, now you are torturing us here in forums too lol

        I would like to see you deliver some to Jamaica and I will pay you two rams! Oh, and I want a batch of each!

          Will the rams be barbecued, with jerk seasoning?

        No gingerbread men. My gingerbread is the cake-type, with a lemon glaze on top! Our local bakery has me spoiled with gingerbread men. They make the best ones I've ever eaten, so I don't waste my time trying to make them. lol

      You are way ahead of me. I've gotten the fudge finished, but need to start on the cookies this week.

    We need to form a paradigmsearch cookie fund!

    Chocolate crinkles over here, more to come tomorrow. Pecan snowballs sound delightful!!

      I'm really sorry that times are hard for you at this time of year sad

      While I can appreciate the Scottish determination... in today's world you DON'T have to live through Winter gnawing on dried biscuits and underdeveloped bread sad

      Do you not even have salted squirrel or moose hooves for Christmas Day? yikes

      I hope you don't mind me saying, but your story has brought tears to my glass eye and I believe with your courage, you must be an inspiration to at least one hungry Girl Guide... Just Incredible!
      I will quickly post to you a corkscrew, fishing line and a hook!  smile
      You just consider that a good old Scottish Hog-morney pressie from me.. I am sorry that I can not post a Haglius - but I will wave one over your parcel, so that you will at least be able to smell it and feel hungry enough to find Sixpence to spend on your own offal pack! smile
      Wow.. At least you will then be able to Ice Fish and won't get scurvy over the festive season! smile

    I've been making shortbread cookies, German Chocolate Brownies, magic cookie bars, chocolate peanut butter pretzel bark, mint almond bark and Chocolate mint chip cookies. 

    I'll try some of your pecan snowballs!  smile

      Magic cookie bars? Those sound fun - what else is in them (besides magic, of course)?

      1. habee profile image92
        habeeposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        My magic cookie bars include graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, pecans, coconut, and sweetened condensed milk. Not sure about Cardelean's version.

          Sounds like Mom's recipe for 7 layer bar cookies.  Total yum.  Count me in.

    Old fashioned gingerbread would be my choice. I did enjoy looking at all the alternatives in Habee's/Holle's bake shop window, so thank you. I am tempted to make some ginger bread now.

    Chocolate chip and cheese straws for me please!

  8. habee profile image92

    I've stayed up all night, baking! Just took some Cajun-spiced toasted pecans out of the oven, and I just put in some cranberry-orange bread. I also made some cheese spread with onions, pecans, red peppers, and chipotle. Yum!

    My peanut butter cookies were good, but they weren't as chewy as I had hoped. My aunt made the BEST peanut butter cookies I've ever eaten, but she's gone now, and I never got her recipe. Anyone got a recipe for super chewy p.b. cookies?

      ThePracticalMommyposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I follow a pretty common p.b. cookie recipe, but instead of just using vanilla I use Karo syrup wth vanilla in it. They are super chewy and yummy!

    Just send  a little sample of each...I've got the glass of milk waiting..big_smile

  10. cardelean profile image92
    cardeleanposted 6 years ago

    Almost the exact same recipe.  I use walnuts not pecans.  Again, super easy and always a hit.  2 c. gr. cr., in the bottom of the pan with 1 stick of melted butter packed down to form a crust.  One cup of everything else and pour the sweetened condensed milk over top.  350 for about 20 minutes.

    Oooo, wouldn't have thought of Karo syrup.  This is a fun twist on a cookie exchange!!! smile

    I am going to gain 10 pounds just reading this forum post.
