So this year for Xmas I want to get into the baking spirit, but im in need of some real good baking recipes for cookies, bars, anything!! Anyone have any good recipes PLZ share :)
This is one of our staples now. In addition to putting the peppermint on top at the end, I also sprinkle very lightly some green sugar - it makes it more festive :
Holiday Peppermint Bark
1 (12 ounce) packageNESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
24hard peppermint candies
- LINE baking sheet with waxed paper.
- MICROWAVE morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70 percent) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
- PLACE peppermint candies in heavy-duty plastic bag. Crush candies using rolling pin or other heavy object. While holding strainer over melted morsels, pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release all small candy pieces; reserve larger candy pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture.
- SPREAD mixture to desired thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces; press in lightly. Let stand for about 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
Yields 1 pound

Thanx for all the recipes and advice ladies I cant wait to start baking me some yummy treats :)
Every Christmas I make caramel. It's easier than you think. I also make sugar cookies, snowball cookies, shortbread, and apple butter. This year I am adding peanut brittle and pralined pecans. I highly recommend pinterest and melskitchencafe. Awesome resources.
I made this for thanksgiving and it was so good....also terribly unhealthy, but I figure once or twice a year is okay....
Some alterations I made were adding 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and a few more scoops of pumpkin

I made these last year for a cookie contest and won prettiest cookies. These are super yummy and really easy to make. I used dumdum suckers instead of lifesavers.
I have added chocolate chips to these. AMAZING.
