quote:

Christ in Christmas


Xmas.....X in Greek is the first letter for the word Christ and historically was used by early Christmas to signify Christ. Therefore Xmas means Christmas and anyone with education knows that.

In answer to the OP a very good southern cookie:
Praline Pecan Cookies
Ingredients:

8 ounces butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 cups finely chopped pecans
sifted confectioners' sugar, optional
Preparation:

Cream butter and brown sugar; stir in vanilla. Gradually work in flour. Mixture will be crumbly. Add chopped pecans and work into dough. Pinch off dough and roll in hands to form balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place on greased baking sheets; bake pecan cookies at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes, until firm and browned on bottoms. If desired, roll pecan cookies in confectioners' sugar while still warm.
Makes about 4 dozen pecan praline cookies.

re: Xmas party cookies


That my friend is exactly the type of thing I was hoping for. I love to cook but don't often bake and signed up late for a dish at this - so I need something a bit off the beaten track, but mainstream enough for a group that's going to have about 4 varieties of "shrimps pasta" (yes, written more than once) and 3 sandwich trays on the sign up sheet (it's at work, so a decent size but apparently non-culinary group).

I'm figuring it'll be easy to do volume, and bake a day ahead if I do cookies.

I was also debating other types of finger food desserts..... in case someone is holding out their amazing idea cause its not a cookie.

Miniature key lime pies are good. Use the recipe on Nellie and Joes' Key Lime juice. Buy the miniature graham cracker crust. Top with a dollop of Whipped cream, Easy and delicious and good with seafood.

I make a mean key lime pie. That could be a safe bet, instead of experimenting for a crowd.
