Christmas Cheer

Cookie Brittle

Cookie Brittle is a new treat for Christmas in our house.  The recipe came from one of my favorite sites, Food52.  I will be packaging this up for friends and neighbors.  The butterscotch-caramel flavor of this crispy treat is habit forming so be careful when you make it.  Someone in our house has been sneaking bits of it at all times of day and night.  Think I am going to have to make a second batch.

Shirred EggsThese shirred eggs make a wonderful festive breakfast for the holidays.  They can be prepared ahead and then baked when you are ready.  Make as many as you want.  It was a perfect Sunday morning meal.

Served with bacon and Focaccia Bread Stick for dipping you can’t go wrong.  The recipe is here.

    It all looks so good Penny. A great way to fix eggs for a crowd or just two. I also like my toast cut into soldiers.

    A lovely Christmas card also.
