"Bake Me A Pretty Cake"

This and a few reindeer plates can totally evoke the Christmas Spirit in me! The colors and the theme are so cheerful and fill me with a sense of anticipation for the days leading up to Christmas Day.

I sat down with my Mystery Chef Cookbooks today-as well as my Southern Living, mentioned in the previous post!

I have narrowed my holiday baking to a family favorite . . .a rich chocolate layer cake with raspberry drizzled deep into the layers, plumped by layers of fresh whipped cream blended with creamy marscapone. This luscious creation is then draped in a shiny chocolate ganache and served up to delighted guests!

Another Christmas favorite comes from a Woman's Day Cookie Edition from the early 90's. A vanilla sandwich cookie filled with jam and decorated to resemble holly! Easy but festive.

Ron and I have discussed it and think it might be time to pump up the volume on these holiday tasties by dipping them in white chocolate!

What's your favorite cookie recipe?
