Someone gave us a gift of these delicious orange slices. These tangy oranges and creamy chocolate are an unbeatable combination. They look fancy and colorful, and are easy to make. A Christmas favorite. These do take a while to make but are well worth it. The orange slices are delicious even without the chocolate. Drying time not included in time. NOTE: When cooking the orange slices DO-NOT STIR. If someone is helping you make sure they do not stir just them push down on the orange slices as recipe says. :) I cut the slices in half again after cooking.
Be a nut and putter your bumpkins. Have your own pumpkin patch right in your kitchen. After reading Melanie's helpful review, I thought it best to emphasize that you should add sugar to the dough until it is very stiff and leave it at that.
These cookies have just the perfect texture. If you are in a hurry they are still good just adding in the 1 cup oats in without grinding them. If you are adding in chopped nuts then reduce the chocolate chips slightly. This cookie dough can be prepared, shaped and then frozen to bake later, the dough freezes well.
Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.
These adorable angels are made using a pointed sugar cone to make a 3D angel. The recipe is no-cook so it would be a perfect holiday project for your kids and could be even be used as place cards on the holiday table. They would also make cute party favors for a children's party.
Recipe from LandOLakes.
Pile all of your favorite memories into one bowl and you have the recipe for this cookie. Chocolate, peanuts and creamy peanut butter, topped with more of the same. These cookies will keep for several days at room temperature if stored in a tightly sealed plastic container. They will also keep for more than a week covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. They may also be frozen.
Almost too pretty a cookie to eat, but they taste so good! I actually won first prize for these cookies when I was a girlscout at age 13. Although I am unsure of the origin of the recipe, I thought it was too good to keep to myself. If you're creative and are up for a challenge, this is a perfect recipe for you.

a cute little Thanksgiving decoration that is easy and the kids will love to make. I found it in Womans day and I will be making these this weekend and will post a picture. Can be made up to three days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.
My sister's co-worker brought these to a party and they were quite a hit. I don't know where the recipe came from originally.
"Bark" is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner's coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips.
You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don't have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.
