The Best of Simply Sweet Home: The Christmas Recipe Edition

Time for more of my favorite posts from a year ago. I did a lot of Christmas recipe posts last year, and since this is Recipe Week in my little Christmas festival, I thought it would be a good time to revisit last December’s recipes.

I recommend the appetizers and the holiday poke cupcakes, but that’s just me! My husband recommends the coconut macaroons. (Unless you’re coming to my house; in which case, they’re no good. lol.)

Christmas Pinwheels
Crunchy Cheese Crisps

Coconut Macaroons

Fantasy Fudge
Holiday Poke Cakes

    These macaroons do add a lot to the cookie platter. My husband just loves them! And the first time I made them, I was surprised at how easy they were to make and how good they turned out.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. And thanks to Prudy and MaryBeth for the use of your lovely photos for my cookie post.

  8. Thanks for stopping by Jerry!
    I needed some recipes for the holiday ie. “RIGHT NOW!” I made all of these commitments to bring sweets and other things to parties and yet I’m going day to day here with a whirlwind of a plan b/c life is a bit hectic. Thanks for making it easier for me by having this info!
    take care!
