I've Been Out in That Kitchen...
I made the first batch of chocolate peanut butter fudge a couple of days ago (I make the old-fashioned kind that was on the back of the Cocoa box a hundred years ago and is cooked on the stove for 17 min. ;>), and got the sugar cookie dough and gingersnap dough mixed up, along with the 'crust' and filling for the pecan tarts. Today, I baked the first round of gingersnap cookies and made 48 pecan tarts. Well, there's actually only 46 tarts NOW cuz I had to try them to make sure they were 'palatable'. *g* Oh my, these 'big woman' hips of mine are growing larger with me just thinking about how scrumptious these pecan tarts are! Do I HAVE to share??? :D
I will try to get the Tasty Kake recipe up here soon for those who were interested in that. :)
I just wanted to let you all know that I'm caught up in the Christmas crunch. Hope all of you are 'making merry'---the Jolly Ole' Man in the Red Suit is only 5-1/2 days away!! :D
