Holiday Baking, Second Recap
Here are more holiday recipes:
The year I took these picture, I cooked the caramels a bit too long. Last year I didn't and they were lighter in color and softer. This recipe is a PITA since it makes so much but it's delicious.
Peanut Butter Fudge:
It figures that after I finally find the perfect peanut butter fudge recipe, my son was diagnosed as allergic to peanuts. Oh well, you can still enjoy this recipe.
Four Chip Fudge:
This is another recipe that you can enjoy without me. This recipe makes a lot of fudge and it's pretty easy to make except for a bit of elbow grease. It's great for gifts if you're not worried about nuts. It's extremely good too.
I haven't found any nut-free fudge recipes that knock my socks off but this one, with mini marshmallows mixed in, is about the best one I've found so far.
Ruth Wakefield’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars:
I used Christmas colored Kissables last year for these. The nice thing about these (and other bar cookies) is that you just stick the pan in the oven and you're basically done instead of scooping out and baking sheet after sheet of cookies.
All-Purpose Cutout Cookies:
I don't do cut-outs at Christmas due to time and energy restraints but this is a good cut-out cookie recipe, if you're looking for one.
Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies:
I've never made these for the holidays but they're really good.
Graham Cracker Chewies:
I miss this nut recipe a lot. I've seen this exact recipe in several cookbooks and it always calls for nuts but I was thinking making I could try some chocolate or on their own without the nuts or any substitutes.
