    Butter Ball Cookies

    Two Southern Sweeties Butter Ball Cookies Our Butter Ball Cookies are buttery mounds of goodness with chopped nuts inside and rolled in powdered sugar. They are fantastic for tea parties, Christmas cookies and even just everyday treats. These have been a traditional Christmas cookie in our home since I was a little girl. I used to love helping my Mom roll them in the powdered sugar when they were still warm out of the oven. Of course, a few always managed to pop into my mouth. One of the reasons I love making these at Christmas is that I always make dozens of cookies and candies to mail out to…

    Almond Joy Macaroons

    Almond Joy Macaroons It it has coconut, chocolate and nuts…I’m in!!! I just love those things mixed together. When it comes in the form of a recipe that only has 4 ingredients and is perfect for any occasion both formal and informal, well that just ROCKS!! Not to mention it’s a sweet little morsel of goodness! Almond Joy Macaroons are so easy to make, just mix the ingredients together, scoop them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake. Ta Da!!! Yes, they really are that simple and quick. I usually make a double batch of these as they tend to disappear quickly, especially around Christmas time. **When you scoop…

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps These Gingersnaps are absolutely AWESOME!!! You can’t eat just one, honestly, you can’t!! We even call them “Crack Cookies” LOL. When I had heard about these cookies, I called my mother in law (now former mother in law) and asked her to send her recipe. She sent me the recipe and the next day I decided I would whip up a batch. Aileen came over and sat at the kitchen table working on her laptop while I started mixing these little jewels up. The dough smells heavenly, just like Christmas to me. I rolled the little balls of dough into the size of marbles and…

    Creamy Coconut Custard Pie

    This Creamy Coconut Custard Pie is the only pie you will ever need and it makes it’s own crust! I have a confession to make, I hate making pie crust!! I just never feel like my pie crust comes out good, even though I have been told it is delicious (Ok, I am kind of a perfectionist). That being said, Coconut Cream Pie is one of my absolute favorites. When I originally came across this recipe I just HAD to try it as it makes its own crust… magically!! Then I realized it was a Custard pie, well I had no choice but to make it. Coconut, Custard and a…

    Quick and Easy Microwave Caramels

    Quick and Easy Microwave Caramels These little gems are so quick, easy and delicious you will be making them often. I make a lot of candy during the holiday season but caramel is just one of those things I had never made. To me it was too intimidating to make sure that it wasn’t over done or under done (yep, I know, SILLY!!) Well this recipe changed my world! Alright, not my world but definitely my entire perception of making caramel. TweetSharePin104Share13117 Shares

    Derby Style Pie

    Derby Style Pie The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner, or if you live here in the Raleigh NC area, The Clayton Derby!! When I was growing up, my Mama and Daddy had race horses.  Now they were pretty good, but of course never made it to the “Derby”.  My parents loved going to the track to watch our horses run. Heck, my daughter Brianna, was just a baby when we would get her all dressed up and go to the track to watch the horses. Needless to say, the Kentucky Derby was sort of a big deal in our house. This Derby style pie is a must for…

    Pizzelles

    Some of y’all may not know what Pizzelles are but let me assure you, they are delicious! Pizzelles are an Italian cookie that can be found now days in grocery stores. For me, they are not Pizzelles unless they are homemade. The most popular flavor is Anise, however, that is not a flavor that my family and I enjoy so we make Vanilla and Chocolate. These cookies are also used to make cannoli shells in many families. Now these do require a special piece of equipment called a Pizzelle Iron.  The Cucina Pro Pizzelle Baker is my favorite. These cookies are very simple to make. I will tell you straight…
