Welcome to day two of Mistletoe Make & Bake 2010! We're all back. . . with more goodies to share!
Today - the subject is 'holiday sanity savers'. . . & for me the biggest one is this. . .
. . . it's the shopping crowds. . . I avoid them. . . like the plague.
I don't mean so sound like Scrooge - but at times like the weekend after Thanksgiving - or the days just before Christmas. . . the last place you will find me is at the mall. I do like to see all the decorations that the stores display. . . but I always pick the least busy time I can think of to see them. I'd much rather be home decorating or making something for gifts. . . or baking(!)
Speaking of baking. . . here's today's recipe. . . Buttery Pecan Cookies!
Another classic. . . this time with pecans. Buttery, golden, crispy yummy-ness!
