Christmas Treats!

RE-POST!! I am so happy to share 3 of my favorite sweet treats. One from my Mom, one from my Mother-in-law and a cookie recipe from ME! How fun!! Yesterday, Jack and I made the Reindeer Cookies and switched them up a little. The result was fantab!! I replaced the craisins and the raisins
for dried cherries and dried apples. YUM!!!

Reindeer Cookies
3 eggs
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 jar Nutella (you can use peanut butter)
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 c m&m’s (holiday mix)
1/2 c golden raisins
1/2 c craisins
2 tsp baking soda
4 c oatmeal (quick cooking)
Preheat oven to 350. In a very large bowl combine eggs & sugars then add each ingredient and mix. Bake 8-10 mins. Yummy!!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
This is the best little addition to any party! My MIL introduced this to me years ago when Hubs and I were first dating. I have taken it so many places for so many different things and everyone always wants the recipe. It is great served with graham crackers.
1~ 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter (don’t substitute, will not work!)
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 c conf. sugar
2 Tb brown sugar
3/4 c mini choc chips
3/4 c chopped pecans
Mix all ing together except pecans, chill overnight so that you can roll into a ball and roll ball in pecans. Delish!

Tina’s Kentucky Pie
This is a recipe my Mother has made every holiday since I can remember. It is so easy!
1~ 9 in pie shell
1/2 c choc chips
1 stick margarine, melted
2 eggs
1 c sugar
1/2 c plain flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c chopped pecans or walnuts
Put chips in bottom of pie shell, mix other ingredients together and pour over chips. Bake at 350 for 30 mins.
