The "Peanut Butter Blondies" are now chilled and they look great and taste even better. I ever so slightly undercooked them so they would be chewy instead of crisp.
I have the cream cheese packages on the counter. One is for "Raspberry Cream Cheese Brownies" from the same magazine. My sister sent a special request and asked that I make her a Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball. I received the recipe from a Chocolate Survey panel that I am a member of. Yes, I do regular surveys concerning Chocolate. What a pleasure.
I think I will continue in the order I listed my recipes, making "Nanaimo Bar Cookies" next.
- Plan ahead of time to ensure you have sufficient ingredients on hand.
- Put butter and eggs on the counter to warm up. (safe away from your cat or dog)
- Copy favourite recipes that you use every year and put them in a binder. Much easier then flipping through dozens of cookbooks to find that particular recipe.
- Line pans with foil or parchment paper for easy removal. This is handy as you will probably need to re-use the pan for another recipe.
- If you live in a cold climate, you can chill items outside, just remember to cover them securely.
Linda has left a fun recipe in the comments section of the first part of my Holiday Baking Party. Thanks to Linda's Grandmother for this one.
