Let the baking begin!

It's official -- the first batch of Christmas cookies for 2008 has just gone into the oven. It's a new recipe (for me, although it's from a 2003 Taste of Home magazine), one I've wanted to try for some time because it looked simple and as if it would be delicious, too. The recipe is Cranberry Coconut Bars and it looks like the basic formulation for traditional seven-layer bars -- the type with graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, coconut, sweetened condensed milk, etc. But this recipe has been majorly tweaked and uses white chips, dried cranberries, and pecans as some of the ingredients. They certainly were simple to put together -- so simple that maybe I'll tackle a more involved recipe this afternoon!

  1. Good for you! They sound delicious. I posted a couple of your recipe's the other day...can't wait to make the whipped shortbread again.

    Blessings to you, Patty
