    Made another couple dozen of the Macaroon Kisses cookies. This time I let them bake just a tad bit longer than recommended and do believe they came out just about perfect.

    For Thanksgiving, I made "regular" pecan pies. But when they were gone, I did an online search for something I bit different and found a recipe for Coconut Pecan Pie. It was a big hit... tastes almost just like the filling/icing on a German Chocolate cake. So I made another one today.

    Okay Santa... back away from the pie. There's plenty of cookies set aside just for you!


    :p

    Goodness Cheryl, Dooley is making Stollens and you are baking mouthwatering pies. I am putting on weight just by looking, much less eat anything. I think I have to turn off the computer before I'm stuffed.

    Have a very Merry Christmas,

    Jerry

    P.S. I think I hear a noise from the chimney.

    dr says those macaroon kisses are his kind of cookie. I guess I'll have to look up a recipe for them. He would like the pecan pie, too. I have a big bag of coconut but no pecans. I guess it will have to be macaroon kisses.
    I think I made enough cookies to last us awhile but yours look sooooo good. I'm not even supposed to be eating a lot of cookies and baked goods but I make an exception at Christmas and try everything.
    Thanks for the pictures!
    I hope I didn't ruin them by drooling all over them.
