Cookie Exchange

All packaged for the party

Over the holidays I was invited to a cookie exchange so I brought sugar cookies (dyed pink) dipped in white chocolate and crushed peppermint candy canes.  Very easy sugar cookies (from a mix!) but they look a little more special.

melt the white chocolate chips

and dip into the crushed candy canes

allow to dry on wax or parchment paper

Easy, Fun Recipe

My mom's friend Alice always has good, easy recipes and I gave this one a try because I could do it from memory! Three ingredients! 

Easy (from the) Pantry Fruit Cobbler

2 or more cans fruit 
one box of cake mix 
one stick of butter

This is one can of fruit (peaches). I would recommend using two or more cans. I used the fruit packed in it's own juices- not syrup. Then you just pour a box of cake mix (vanilla) on top of the fruit. Then a whole stick of butter, cut up in pats.

Then you just bake at 350 until it's browned and bubbly (yours will be more bubbly with more juice!)- it took less than 30 minutes.
