Today is my in lieu holiday of Remembrance Day so I'm going to start on my Christmas baking. I'm making Whipped Shortbread and Magic Santa Cookie Bars(recipe below). I figured I'd get a head start on my baking this year and hopefully prevent the Christmas blues that I come down with when I feel like I'm rushed and running out of time.
Magic Santa Cookie Bars:
1 can (3oo ml) Sweetened Condensed Milk regular or low fat
2 cups graham wafer crumbs
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cups white or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup mini marshmallows
1. Comgine graham wafer crumbs with butter, press evenly into a parchment lined 13 x 9 baking pan.
2. Pour 2/3 Condensed milk over crumbs.
3. Sprinkle with pecans, chips, cranberries, coconut and marshmallows; press down firmly. Pour remaining condensed milk over top.
4. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly and cut into bars. (store loosely at room temperature.) Makes 24 bars.
If you have a favorite (must-have) cookie recipe that the family absolutely must have each year and you'd like to share it, please leave a comment or post about it and let me know.
Have a great day!
