Today I’m thrilled to be joined by 13 other amazing bloggers for our Christmas Cookie Exchange. We all baked a batch of cookies or treats and swapped blogs to share our recipes.
A soft molasses cookie with warm winter spices, cinnamon and ginger, and studded with cinnamon chips for an extra layer of cinnamon deliciousness.
Thanks Liz for inviting me to share a cookie recipe on Hoosier Homemade as part of our Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange. I’m Barbara and you’ll find me baking sweet treats and more on Barbara Bakes and pressure cooking quick, delicious family meals on Pressure Cooking Today.
My daughter was visiting recently. She’s eight months pregnant and was craving something sweet, so we whipped up these scrumptious soft ginger snap cookies. She has fond memories of eating ginger snap cookies this time of year. We like our ginger snaps soft, not the hard crunchy ginger snaps you buy in the grocery store.
Since I’d stashed away several bags of cinnamon chips in the pantry, we decided they’d be the perfect addition to our soft ginger snap cookies. If you haven’t tried cinnamon chips yet, they’re basically a white chocolate chip spiced up with cinnamon.
Cinnamon Chips can sometimes be hard to find. Hershey’s makes them and they’re often only available in stores in the fall and winter. You can buy them online through Amazon or King Arthur Flour. If you’re adventurous, you can even make cinnamon chips at home. Renata at Testado, Provado & Aprovado did a delicious post about how easy it is to make cinnamon chips.
These cookies would also be delicious with semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even with no chips at all and a tall glass of cold milk. Enjoy!
Thanks so much Barbara! This recipe looks amazing! For more recipes to fill your cookie tray – visit these bloggers!
If you have been around here for awhile, you know I love an easy but impressive looking dessert. One that will have your family and guests in awe of your work, but we won’t tell them how easy it really was.
This Triple Nut Tart is the perfect recipe to do just that! This Tart is similar to Pecan Pie but has the delicious flavor of 3 nuts – pecans, walnuts and almonds folded into a creamy filling.

Making a tart is not difficult at all, it’s really just like a single crust pie. Although, having the right pan is key here. After a little searching around, and asking my food blogger friends for recommendations. I found a Tart Pan that has a removable bottom, that is definitely the pan you want. It made removing the tart so much easier. You can certainly make this same recipe into a regular pie crust, as well.
This new twist on the classic Pecan Pie starts by making the recipe for Perfect Pie Crust. The filling is a traditional combination of Karo Corn Syrup, sugar, butter, salt and eggs. But the triple nut combination really makes this Nut Tart special.
Along with the Fisher Nuts – pecans, walnuts and almonds, you will need Karo Syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla.
Fisher Nuts and Karo Corn Syrup are once again teaming up to share holiday recipes with you. Here are some of the new recipes you may like – 3 Nut Pie, Caramel Apples with Chocolate and Walnuts, Perfect Pecan Bars, Chocolate Pecan Truffles, Caramel Walnut Tart, and Almond Crusted Chicken Wings.

It’s that time of year – time to fire up the oven, grab the rolling pin and get ready to bake the most delicious pie ever! Baking pies, in my opinion, is a bit of an art. But I think the more the practice, the easier it gets. And having the Perfect Pie Crust Recipe is a good start!
This post is brought to you by Crisco. I’m thrilled to be a Crisco Pie Partner.
With just a few simple ingredients, you can make your own perfect pie crust too! There are a few different methods to making a Pie Crust. Today I’m sharing how to use your Food Processor. If you don’t have a Food Processor, you can learn more from Michele Stuart in the Crisco Kitchen. Before you begin, be sure that your Crisco shortening is chilled and the water is ice cold.
For the Food Processor method – first combine the flour and salt.
Next, cut the chilled Crisco into pieces.
Add the Crisco cubes to the Food Processor and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces remaining.
Add half of the recommended amount of ice water, pulse until well combined. If too dry, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time.
Wrap dough in plastic and form a disk. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Christmas is right around the corner! Do you still have gifts to make and no time to make them? Maybe for neighbors, teachers, friends or even have a fun little take home gift for guests.
Well, I have the perfect no bake…whip it up in under 15 minutes…totally delicious and addicting…treat for you to make…Christmas Candy Crunch!
One of the best things about this snack mix is that you can use whatever ingredients you like. Here is what I used…
Christmas Candy Crunch Ingredients
Melt the Hershey’s White Chips in the microwave, mix the other ingredients in a large bowl, pour the melted chocolate over the mixture and spread it out on a pan for about 10 minutes until it’s set…that’s it!
The gift giving ideas are endless, this time we used red take-out boxes and decorated them. You can see how we decorated all of the boxes over on Pocket Change Gourmet.
Remember when I told you about going to Hershey’s and creating a fun Santa Bucket? Well, the directions are now available on Hershey’s website! I was super excited to see my creation come to life and shared as part of the Baker’s Dozen.
These Santa Buckets would also be great to hold the Christmas Candy Crunch…don’t you think?
Disclosure: I’m honored to be part of the Hershey’s Baker’s Dozen program. I was provided compensation and product. As always, the opinions are my own.
