You Won't Believe them

I have struggled the last couple of days trying to load pictures, so this morning I reloaded Adobe. Woohoo it worked so here are two pictures I took the day it snowed, beautiful aren't they. The weather looks like may have a white Christmas, how cool is that. I was supposed to go Caroling tonight (yes I was going to make a joyful noise!!) but it is too slick. Hope I get over the fear of falling.

I have made cookies all week with more to make tomorrow. Cookie exchange this weekend and I can't wait, so far I made oatmeal cookies, biscotti and these candies that are so easy to make here is the recipe:

1 cup Butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 pkg. chocolate chips
40 saltine crackers
1 c. pecans, chopped

Line a jelly roll pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Lay crackers flat on foil. Melt sugar and butter together on stove until "foamy" Make sure all the sugar has melted. Pour over crackers and spread evenly. Bake @ 350 for 10 minutes. While mixture is hot sprinkle chips over top. Let them melt 1-2 minutes then spread chocolate out evenly. Spread pecans evenly over top and use a glass to press them into chocolate. Cool and refrigerate until hard. Break into small pieces. Store in air tight container.

These are really good they have that sweet and salty thing going on.

Tomorrow more cookies and this weekend bourbon balls.

Oh my goodness Mari - those birds in the snow are just beautiful! I think I'd be glued to the window watching them!
Your cookies sound divine - I'm putting the recipe on my list to try. Today I'm heading over to my Mum's to bake some shortbread.
