More yummy treats

I know this isn't a cooking blog BUT I do not want to create a separate blog...I can barely keep up with this one!! LOL! So, you will get a little bit of everything on here! Right now I want to show you some treats I made the other day when I was in a serious baking mood! I already showed you the Anzac Biscuits and I must say those are DELISH!! The above treats have also been tested by either myself or other family members and they all pass the YUMMY test! LOL! The top cookies are peanut butter. A recipe I got at my bridal shower a few years back from my hubby's aunt and I finally decided to try them. Now I won't touch these because I don't like very much PB but my DH sure knows how to stuff his face with them! The second ones are oatmeal raisin and I got the recipe from Charlotte here. A little sticky to work with but they taste AMAZING!! The last things are pretzels filled with chocolate/caramel and walnuts. So I guess they are pretzel turtles. A little idea I got from a lady I work with at school. I prefer them without nuts so I made a little of both even though the ones in the picture all have nuts. That is all for now as I do believe I have enough to munch on for the holiday! :P

For those of you doing the same thing this week....HAPPY BAKING!! And the rest of you...HAPPY TASTING!! LOL!

Hi Stacie,
First let me say that I love that sweet chinchilla of yours....absolutely the sweetest! How are they as pets? Second, a huge thank you for putting the link regarding the oatmeal raisin cookies on your blog. Yes they are a little sticky to work with but I used some extra flour to form mine a little more solidly, but yours look delish too! Thank you for taking the time to try the cookies. Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for the New Year!

Hey Stacie!

Thanks for popping by! You have been soooo busy. All your treats look delish! I LOVE peanut butter...I eat it by the spoonful:) So if you have any leftovers....:)

Also, I had to comment that your Scamp card is the cutest thing EVER! I used to have a dog named's close. He never chewed on lights...he was THE best. I did dogsit one time and the dog got so excited that he RIPPED all the lights off the tree and window just by wagging his tail. He was a really fat Lab. Anyways, hope you have a very blessed Christmas!
