    I have actually been baking your eggnog squares! (they were a party hit!)
    And lots and lots of oatmeal cookies for presents!!

    I love that its fun for me to bake and lose weight..at the same time!

    congo bars are my favorite too!! Whole Foods bakery sells a 3-pack that I always buy this time of year (and devour much too quickly).

    ps when is the book coming out!?!?

    List this year:
    Chocolate chip cookies (to get my little sister through finals),
    Oatmeal cranberry chocolate cookies,
    Chocolate toffee cookies,
    Sugar cookies,
    Pecan snowballs,
    Peanut butter blossoms,
    Chocolate chubbies.

    Bingeing on baking while your parents will buy all the groceries? Priceless.

    (Ps. We’re also planning a trip to a nursing home to spread some holiday cheer and save our waistlines by sharing the cookies.)

    I was looking for a new desert to try this holiday season, I was looking at the Congo Bars recipe and the only question I have is what temperature should the oven be at when baking them?

    All the candy is prepared and the cookie dough is made – just need to start baking.

    Ummm…those congo bars look deadly delicious! I am so going to try those :)
    This time of year I always make:
    -Red Velvet Cupcakes
    -Jam Jam’s
    -Davy Crockets
    -Oatmeal Scothies

    But I am always looking for new recipes to try!

    Hi Andie – I have been away (in your part of the world actually – my son and I visited Orlando and Los Angeles) and am catching up on your blog. As usual everything looks so delicious and I keep promising myself that I am going to get into my kitchen and try one of your recipes …. a bit lazy at the moment though!

    Everything of the best over the Festive Season and I wish you all the joy and happiness that you so richly deserve.
