Dear Faith:
This is one of the recipes I have been searching for many years.  I did not know what is was called and my friends had similar ones, but this one is the best I ever had at a friends many years ago.  Thank thank you.
My favorite cookie - - Is Melt in your mouth Shortbread.  They are true to the name and people just gollip them up.
If you go to google and type in "Melt in your Mouth Shortbread" you will find the recipe.
Another recipe I lost and cannot remember who was the baker "Rice Krispie squares with two other cereals"  I believe, not sure, if it was one of Martha Stewart's recipe.  If anyone knows the name, would please write back.
Thanks again, Helen

Hi Helen,  I am so glad that I posted that jello mold then---would you believe-this recipe is from the 80's????  My MIL made this for a luncheon spread and with a blink of an eye it was gone... It is simple, easy and tasty!!!    I will definiately have to look into the "shortbread one"  for it would be nice to post that one as well....

Perhaps for the Martha Stewart one go on line to her blog and check out her Rice Krispie recipes it sounds goooooooood...

Here's to great recipes......HUGS, Faith :)

My dear sweet MIL (seriously, I loved her very much) made something similar. I wasn't much of a Jell-o maker and my kids were amazed by the bright, jiggly, jewel-like Jell-o creation their GM made. Brings back memories, thanks so much for posting (PS, I'm still not much of Jell-o maker, LOL.)

These nuts are so easy: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=10000000633348

We do them every year and everyone loves them. I double the recipe for each batch but use two pans to spread them on so they don't clump.

So Julia, what rock have you been living under? ... country do you live in?  Cool Whip is a whipped cream alternative, it's actually an edible oil product.  It's smooth and sweet, but really disgusting if you think about what it's made of and the fact that it doesn't go bad.

Dear Faith:
Thanks for looking up the recipe on line; re: Melt in your Mouth Shortbread Cookies.
I also, went online and found it, but thanks so much.
I wish everyone would try this recipe just once, and they will add to their Christmas Cookie List.
My grandson eats them so fast, I hide some, so when he is scrounging around looking for more, I put some on a plate when he is not looking and put them on the table.  A big smile comes over his face - - and it's worth every minute of baking.
I make 4 times the batch, that's how popular they are.
Keep on baking and let's keep this subject open, I really like new recipes!
Helen

They sound low cal enough.. I'll give them a try  ;)  We always HAVE to bake these awful bland white cookies then put enough frosting on them to make them sweet.  Not my FOO tradition but now my kids would die if I didn't make them.

My parents were never big on Christmas baking, that I can remember.  But my mom always had Farm Stores eggnog in the house, that was the best of the best.

Has anyone made mini quiche using the fillo cups?  Or ... do you know of any really yummy desert fillings for the mini fillo cups?

Hi Laurie,  I went on line with "Recipes for mini fillo cups" and a lot came up and one which really sounded good was the "Herb Cheese Mini Quiche" from Better Homes and Gardens recipe club.  Hope this helps... Hugs, Faith..... :) :D
