Cookies, Candy, and Loose Ends — 20 Comments

  1. Nothing like a good ol’ icewine truffle to get ya started in the morning! Beats my oatmeal anyday! They look delicious!
    Katie, you and your family have a very Merry Christmas! Have fun and be safe!

  2. Deb, I had my oatmeal (she says, sanctimoniously), It was in my Peanut Butter Cookie!
    BelliniBalli, Don’t you just love an eclectic breakfast? That ice wine was yummy…Thank you so much!

  3. You really don’t do things in halves Katie! I have to say I just love your approach. Your Christmas goodies look wonderful. Sorry I’ve been absent of late but I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. I made your peanut butter oatmeal recipe. They are in a photo on my blog today, look closely. Have a Merry Christmas Katie!

  5. Hats off to you, Katie! You rock for doing all that baking. And I’m so happy you submitted your delicious cookies to my event. They’re all simply wonderful. Happy Holidays! -Susan

  6. Love those lemon bars but I’ll need two of the peanut butter ones, you know to get my oatmeal. And the leftover ice wine truffles, 5 I think there were, will be just right.
    I can always count on a smile and laugh coming here.

  7. Hello! I have a question for you, I made that truffle recipe (sans the ice wine) and they turned out great!!! the only problem was that the next day the truffles had soaked up all the cocoa powder… not nearly as nice looking (just as tasty though!) is there a trick or an adjustment in the recipe? or should i just re-roll them?

  8. Truffle, thanks – and happy holidays to you! I know you’ve been traveling lots… I should say Happy Trails!
    Meredith, I saw your baking. Well done! And yes it counts and is duly noted.
    Susan, That threw my for a minute… Thank you, and thanks for hosting such a wonderful event!
    Ah, Tanna, that’s the best way to get the oatmeal… and the protein from the peanut butter. All good stuff. The truffles are gone….really
    Karina, I didn’t have that problem but the almonds I rolled them in (before the cocoa) were kind of chunky – maybe that helped. It’s only my first time so I can’t offer any more advice…sorry.. But they were good!!!!

  9. You have been baking up a storm…..the truffles turned out really great! I am impressed! Your breakfast sounds very familiar…..thanks again for hosting the Spice Exchange….It turned out really well and the pictures were wonderful…….so much fun to see what everyone received!

  10. I love lemon bars. This is pretty much the recipe I use, although I got the recipe from a friend on a recipe card and they were called “Carol’s Lemon Love Notes.” The name makes me laugh every time I make them! Glad to see you tying up so many loose ends. The truffles look wonderful. As for eating too many cookies, I had to make my husband take all the cookies we had left to work this morning. I’m done with eating them for another year!
    Katie, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and that the New Year will bring you only good things!

  11. Thanks, Lydia, Colleen and Kevin… The lemon bars are gone already….
    Thanks, Jann… And nice to hear from you again!
    Laurie, I used to do that, take them all to work. Can’t any more…sigh…
    Thank you – and wishing the same to you!

  12. I can not wait to make these Ice Wine Truffles. I am a truffles girl, mmmmm. Thanks for sharing these lovely desserts. I might have to get in on the lemon bars too:)
