KT Countdown to Christmas Day #3

Wednesday 10:20pm
Dang, dang, double dang! Just checked in to see how the comments for today were going and you weren't there! My post from last night didn't automatically go up this morning (I'm sure due to user error) so here it is for Thursday. We'll double up down the line to catch up. I've had quite a day - dentist, shopping, editing/printing/stuffing/shipping patterns and a big date night with Robert. We went to a Clint Black concert in a small old movie theatre converted into a stage that is just the coolest venue. Haven't really listened to his stuff for several years but sang along like it was yesterday. Sorry again about the delay on Day #3, but had a great excuse for just now getting home :). Merry Christmas to me!

Day #2 winners of a Quiltmaker 100 Quilt Blocks magazine are Happy Cottage Quilter, Jan and icraftnqlt. Congrats, ladies. Santa will have your prize delivered and under the tree in a flash.

For Day #3, we have a Moda Jelly Roll tin stuffed with 22 assorted Warm Memories fat 1/8's. Interested? Just comment here about your favorite holiday treat (I need some inspiration for our Christmas get-together this weekend).

    Okay, favorite holiday treat is probaby no bake cookies. If you want the recipe, please email me at jwallace9@gmail.com

    Merry CHRISTmas! :)

  5. Sounds like you had a great night. Lucky for me you had computer problems. I forgot to check your blog until a few minutes ago. Now I can still comment and hope to win.

    Fovorite holiday treat would have to be peanut butter balls--butter, peanut butter, and powdered sugar mixed together and dipped in chocolate. Almost as good as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Hope you have fun making your holiday treats.

    A blessed Christmas to you and your family.

  6. I am definitely interested, lol.
    I always made blonde brownies, everyone always loved those, nothing like brown sugar treats that melt in your mouth.

  8. My husband and I love Cream Cheese Puff...fast, easy, and delicious! It only takes 5 or 6 ingredients and is always a hit no matter where I take it!

  9. My favorite treat is pitacho cake. The cake and icing is green and great for Christmas and St. Patrick's Day. Plus, it stays moist for days. I love the Moda tin. I love my KT tin. I've ordered some more for birthday presents for some of my quilting buddies. Trying to get more organized for next year.

    Seeing Clint Black must have been amazing. Reminds me that I need to get out more often.

  11. I have so many "favorites" that I just can't pick only one! :-) There are the usual decorated sugar cookies-- perfect for Christmas time... but we also love Neiman Marcus Brownies, Mama's Chewy Squares, and Chubby Hubby Cookies! :-) That little tin stuffed with fabrics is SO cute! Thanks for the chance to win it! :-)

  12. Congratulations to the winners! Sounds like you had a very fun night! Interested? Need you even ask! LOL Yes!! Favorite Christmas treat? Hmmm, just one? ;-) I love Lemon Bars and always make some for Christmas gifting. I like making Peanut Brittle too. Thanks for the chance on that gorgeous fabric!

  13. Fudge. Just can't get enough. Ooh, Clint Black sounds great! I haven't listened to him in a long time. I'll have to go find my "Nothin But The Taillights" CD. :)

  14. My Favourite holiday treat has got to be freshly brewed coffee with home made short bread. Or a close second is Gingerbread Stars and eating off the star points. Have a wonderful Christmas with Family and Friend and lots of favourite treats :-)
    Cheers

  15. Favourite holiday treat - oh dear only one? Rum balls, or maybe mince pies but wait there's the chocolate covered scorched almonds or what about the dark rich Christmas Cake - darn it I can't choose just one.
    But wait, yes I can, it's the biscuits I make with the help of my Grand-daughters. they're not the sweetest and don't really looked the cutest but each one is full of Grandy love.
    Thanks for the chance
    hugs, Miche'le

  16. I'm glad that I"m not the only one those kinds of things happen to! My favorite fast treat is a pretezl with a rolo on top melted slightly and then a pecan squished on top--it tastes sort of like turtles (the candy kind). I love them because the rolo's get melty in a warm oven and my kids can make them with me, but if they get bored it doesn't take me much to finish them off (that's making and eating).

    ReplyDelete
  17. My fav holiday treat would have to be the big boxes of chocolate candies that my dad used to bring home every year. He was the only one allowed to poke them to see what was inside. The rest of us had to take our chances and hopefully not get one filled with jelly.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite holiday treat is homemade yeast rolls that gets served with our dinner. My mom only made them for Thanksgiving and Christmas; it was a recipe handed down for generations. I am following in her footsteps and making them only for the holidays too... but I add in Easter.

    Another treat is pecan pie. I never learned how to make it and I really don't like to cook, so pecan pie has to be my other favorite holiday treat.

    But the best treat of all is having my husband home for Christmas and not being deployed.

  19. Ooo, I love the warm memories line! My favorite holiday treat is fudge. My mom makes it from scratch and it is always awesome (even if you have to use a spoon some years).

  20. It's hard to beat this:

    Death by Chocolate Trifle

    4 - 3.9 oz. boxes instant chocolate pudding mix (plus milk to make pudding)
    1 large container frozen whipped topping, thawed
    1 box chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients to bake cake)
    1 cup Kahlua (optional)
    8 oz. package Heath English toffee bits

    Prepare chocolate cake mix as directed; bake in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Take baked cake out of oven and immediately poke holes all over. Pour Kahlua evenly over entire surface of hot cake. Let cool.

    Meanwhile, prepare the pudding. Tear or crumble cooled cake into pieces. In a trifle bowl, layer in this order: cake, pudding, whipped topping and toffee bits. Repeat layers ending with toffee bits. Chill well before serving. Yum!

  21. My favorite treat is eggnog - YUMMY!

  29. I make Greek Shortbread crescents. every year. 8oz unsalted butter, vanilla essence, i egg, 2 tablespoons(heaped) of icing sugar ( powdered sugar. )Beat until light and creamy, add chopped walnuts or almonds if preffered, and enough self raising flour to make a stiff but pliable dough. Take a spoonful of dough and roll it into a cylinder, then shape into a crescent, continue until all are done, place on baking sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes in a moderate oven. Do not let them colour too much. remove and place on foil that has been sprinkled generously with icing sugar, then sift more icing sugar over the top. cool and store in an airtight container. they are lovely. :)

  30. Jelly Roll Tin with Warm Memories - what a treat in itself ! For teatime treats give me Shortbread with Fudge and Pecan Nuts. And dessert: Pavlova meringue filled with double cream and mascarpone cheese and topped with mixed berries. Mmmmm - can hardly wait for Christmas Day. Margaret

  31. Our christmas favourite is a home made 'kerststol' that my sister and I prepare 4 weeks in advance. It's a bit like the original english christmas pudding, except for the brandy. I can give you the recipe if you like, but I'll have to translate it first. However, you wouldn't be able to make it for this year, since it needs 4 weeks of rest before you can eat it. I'd be happy to give the recipe though!
    love from the Netherlands!

  36. This will be our second Christmas in Nova Scotia and we were introduced to having fresh lobster for breakfast on Christmas morning last year.

    Since lobster are in season now, we've already placed our order with a local fisherman and it goes without saying that lobster has already become a Christmas tradition in our family. But who needs an excuse for fresh lobster anyway? *wink*

    Thanks again for your generosity.

  37. My favorite would be the peanut patties my grandmother always made. Thanks for the give away,would love to win.

  38. Nothing brings on the smiles like some great music! It really does sooth the soul. Favorite Christmas treat would be... as a sweet, thumb cookies with black cherry jelly fill... and as a savory, spinach lasagne roll-ups with a hollandaise-tyoe cheesy sauce on them... Mmmmmm... almost want some for breakfast this morning! lol! The tin full of fabrics looks wonderful!

  42. I love a good trifle with sponge fingers and preserved fruit in the jelly and custard,( laced with brandy )and lots of whipped cream and dusted off with cocoa..that reminds me of a cappucino, come to think of it a good way to wash it down! Rum balls, mince pies and pavlova are other favs for this time of year along with the ol' fruit cake with generous layers of marzipan and royal icing, topped with marachino cherries..to think of it the trifle is good with those too. Another good thing is the steamed fruit pudding and lashings of brandy sauce, I love it with good cup of tea... Oh what fare... this is the life I remember when my grandmother made Christmas very special. There were silver threepences and sixpences in the pud too. You had to eat it with a little trepidation just in case. I hope your Christmas is lovely too!

  43. I make a jalapeno cheese spread and whenever I serve it people always ask for the recipe. It's super easy, can be done a few days ahead and makes enough for a crowd. If you like spicy things and want the recipe I can email it.

  44. A favorite around here is brown sugar fudge made with icing sugar, butter and of course brown sugar and evaporated milk. Quick and easy. Also the grandkids love my peanut butter balls.

  51. My favorite treat is Toffee, I only make it at Christmas time. Good thing or else I'd be 500#s. Cute tin. Thanks again for your wonderful giveaways.

  52. I kept checking all day yesterday until I went to bed and then set a reminder to check this morning again. And there it is. Yay.
    You sounds like you had a gread day ~ well, other than the dentist part/ick ~ but very cool that you saw Clint Black. I bet that was a lot of fun.

    One of the favorites that seems to be everyone's favorite when I make my Christmas goodies is my Peppermint Swirl Fudge. SUPER quick and easy and best of all- no candy thermometer. You must cut this into small pieces however, as it is VERY rich....but OH SO GOOD! This is the one that everyone who had some at hubby's work asked for the recipe and anyone else that's had some as well; even the men so they could give it to their wives.

    Peppermint Swirl Fudge

    Makes 36 candies

    1 12oz pkg (2 cups) vanilla milk chips
    1 can Pillsbury Vanilla Creamy Supreme Frosting
    ½ t peppermint extract
    4 drops red food color
    2 T peppermint candies, crushed

    Line 8-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges; lightly butter foil. Melt chips in large saucepan over very low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in frosting and peppermint extract. Spread in butter boil lined pan. Drop food color over fudge. Pull knife through mixture to marble. Sprinkle with crushed candy; press slightly. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Remove fudge from pan by lifting foil; remove foil from fudge. Cut into squares.

    Microwave directions:
    Prepare pan as directed above. In large microwave safe bowl, microwave chips on high for 1 to 2 minutes; stir until smooth. Continue as directed above.

    One of my other favorites are the Cinnamon Pecans. Very good but, with the price of Pecans this year it's an expensive treat to make. It's another favorite though.

    Cinnamon Pecans
    1/4 c evaporated milk
    1 c sugar
    1/4 t cinnamon
    2 T water
    1/4 t vanilla
    3 c pecans

    Combine all ingredients except pecans in a pan. Cook over medium heat till sugar is dissolved, add pecans and continue to cook stirring frequently. Cook until pecans are completely sugared with no syrup left in pan. Spread on wax paper and let cool. Break apart and enjoy.

    Maybe that will inspire you since they are both super easy and quick to make. And if you find some energy or inspiration, please send it to me? I've made ONE thing so far. :(

  53. Too many things to pick from at this time of year, but we like fudge and spritz cookies. And I was just given a recipe for Scandinavian Almond Bars that I want to try to make this weekend. Yummy!

  62. My favorite holiday treat is getting up on Christmas morning and making chocolate waffles for my family. This is a family tradition that my late husbands grandmother started and my children (and now grandchildren) absolutely love it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. A traditional favorite would be the frosted Christmas tree cookies (big cookies with lots of frosting!). It is a recipe that is handed down to the next person to make them. One of my new favorites that my husband and I made would be brownies from scratch with a double batch of peanut butter frosting with chocolate drizzled on top. I've also used the peanut butter frosting for cupcakes with peanut butter cups on top.

I use the biggest tupperware bowl almost dishpan size. Pour in a box of Captain crunch, a bag of pretzel twists and 2 bags of m&ms. Then melt the almond bark and pour over. mix. Spread out on wax paper to cool.. Done. Super fast super simple and that mix of sweet and salty everyone craves.

  83. The Holiday treat most requested this year is Candy Cane cookies. 2 tubes of sugar cookie dough, one plain the other add red food coloring. Roll out very thin strips, twist together, shape like candy canes & bake according to directions. Cute & good but time consuming. GREAT give away!! THANK YOU!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Okay, I must say it is very difficult to name a "favorite" holiday treat. I like soooooo many. I guess my favorite would be the chocolate letter since it is a Dutch custom that I have carried on with my own children. Unfortunately, I have had to go gluten and dairy free. So all those holiday treats are out for me this year. A nice little win would sure make that easier to take!

  85. Guess my favorite would be nut breads, I bake them up in the mini-pans, just slice and place on a platter for a quick treat. Served with cream cheese is even better. This year I made blueberry lemon, cranberry pecan, lemon Poppyseed, Cherry Almond and pumpkin. Thanks for the give away, love Warm Memories.

  86. My mother used to make a treat at Christmas that she called 'Sugar Plums.' It was very simple. You needed the sweetest and softest dates, fresh pecans, and castors sugar. To make them, you insert half of a pecan into the date, roll it in the castors sugar, and save for Christmas day! Easy? Not quite. It was hard to help and not eat as you go! ~ Lynda

    ReplyDelete
  87. Pretzel bites are a quick and easy treat to make. Use the square waffle pretzel, place them on a cookie sheet, then place a rolo candy on top, put in the oven at 250 degrees. Watch and wait for 8 minutes, then quickly pull them out and place a pecan half on each. Once done put in the refrigerator. Take out for the party and enjoy something salty and sweet.

  89. Would LOVE to win the wonderful fabric. Found this recipe on a social blog this year - Almond Bark Popcorn -1 bag microwave white popcorn, no butter; 4 sqs white almond bark; red & green colored sprinkles - Pop popcorn. Melt in microwave, check after a min.& stir & then just keep checking until completely melted. It usually doesn't take very long (burns easily!). Put popcorn in large bowl, pour melted bark over & stir until all is covered. Put sprinkles in bowl with popcorn & bark, & stir through. Put on wax paper & let cool. Spread as evenly as you can. Break apart when cool. Lana D.

They are the really delicious short cake like little balls of cookies with pecan pieces that are rolled in powdered sugar while still warm and again after cooled. They look like little snow balls.

  102. I love peanut butter and chocolate fudge. My MIL makes it and it is yummy! It is chocolate fudge on the bottom with a layer of peanut butter fudge on top. Both are spread thinner than regular fudge so you don't get a sugar overload...unless you eat too many! :)

  103. CUTE LITTLE GIVEAWAY!
    THANKS FOR SHARING!

    HERE'S A QUICK YUMMY TREAT:
    "SALTED NUT BARS"

    2 jars (16 oz.) dry-roasted salted peanuts
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 bag (10 oz.) peanut butter chips
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1 bag (16 oz.) miniature marshmallows

    Grease bottom of 9x13 pan. Pour one jar of nuts int pan+set aside. In large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter+peanut butter chips, stirring as needed. Warm the can of sweetened condensed milk by running it under hot water or placing it in a bowl of hot water for about 5 minutes. Pour sweetened condensed milk into the chip/butter mixture and stir to blend. Remove from heat, add marshmallows+stir quickly. (Some of the marshmallows will melt, most will not, that's how you want them...overcooking and melting all the marshmallows will make for a very soft center.) Pour mixture over nuts in pan, covering all. Add remaining jar of nuts to the top of mixture+press down gently with back of spatula. Refrigerate 4 hours before cutting into 1x2-inch bars=30 bars.Enjoy!

  107. Spritz cookies, hands down. Christmas is the only time I make them because of all the butter. And oh do they taste yummy!

  108. Homemade caramels have to be the best. I leave some plain with pecans and dip some in chocolate.

  110. My favorite holiday treat is spending time with family that I don't get to see during the year.

    Of course, having some "Millie Cookies" (special cookies made by my Aunt Mille who recently passed away) doesn't hurt either. Hmmm......I guess I'll be the one making the Millie Cookies this year!

    **runs to get the recepie and the grocery list**

  111. Decorated Sugar Cookies are the best! But for going to a party I take a dish called "Oakie Mud Pie" (not orginal name). It has a walnut crust, a layer of cream cheese with cool whip, then a pudding layer, then a layer of cool whip, then some chocolate grated over the top. It freezes well too.

  123. Favorite holiday treat is Philly Cream Cheese dip. My mom always made it for the holidays and I have continued to make it every year during the holiday season. Sure would love those Warm Memories fat 1/8s. Glad you were only on a date and nothing serious was wrong. :)

  124. My favorite holiday treat is pecan pie using the recipe on the karo syrup bottle. My mother makes great pecan pies! Of course, winning your fabric treat is much healthier and it's lovely that I could have both! Merry Christmas.

  129. Chocolate chip cookies with Andes mints instead of the chips are yummy if you like mint:)

  130. Wow, all these posts have reminded me of lots of treats we enjoy. My nana's molasses cookies, cream cheese spritz cookies, and my grandmother's
    Yuletide Kisses
    3 egg whites
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    Beat together until foamy.
    2 1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
    Add gradually, beating until stiff peaks are formed.
    1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
    1 3oz package jello (red or green for Christmas)
    Add and beat well.
    Spray the cookie sheet. Allow 1 Tablespoon batter per cookie. Sprinkle with colored sugar if desired. Bake at 275F for 15 to 20 minutes. You can bake them until they are totally dry inside, or until they are still just a little bit chewy - like eating a cookie and a candy at the same time.
    4 dozen cookies

  131. My favorite treat are almond kolaczki cookies. My mother in law taught me how to make them....our family tradition is to make them as a family on Christmas Eve. Yum!

  132. My favorite holiday treat is fudge! Christmas was the only time of the year we made it as a child and I used to make a batch every year, but not this year, as we are trying to cut out the sweets! It was my aunt's favorite and I used to make some and send it to her when she was alive.

  133. I like just about all holiday treats, which can be a problem lol. But to narrow it down, I will say that one of the best treats I've had was the stollen bread that my mother would get each Christmas from our local bakery. Both the bakery and my mother have been gone for many years, and I've never been able to find anything comparable here in Phoenix. It was so good!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  136. My favorite Christmas treat is homemade peanut brittle. Boy, was I surprised the first time I made it and it foamed up and nearly overflowed the pan--wasn't expecting that. But the kids loved it and looked forward to that part every year after that. Thanks for the great fabric lines and the opportunity to win some neat stuff!

  141. Ooh, pretty!

    For non-cake Christmas sweets, I think my favorite is iced sugar cookies, but this season also reminds me of chocolate fudge (with or without nuts) and divinity. Ooh, and sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and pecans on top. Yummy!

  145. So, I have to pick one...it is candy cane cookies. My Mom made them every Christmas and I've made them every Christmas for the last 40 years. They just taste like childhood and all the memories of Christmas with my DH and two wonderful children.

  146. My favorite Christmas treat? Golden Pecan Tossies! I have no idea what a Tossies is but these are like mini pecan pies. My favorite KT Fabric line? It used to be Garden Inspirations, but I got some preview precuts of Sandhill Plums this week and I was blown away! I am eagerly awaiting the official release of this line so I can get some yardage for borders and backings. Thanks Lynne for another fabulous line!

  151. My favorite holiday treat is rock candy --- and it's not that it is so unusual, but I get together with two friends, our daughters and grandchildren and we spend the whole day cooking, pouring, cracking --- and we've been doing it for forty years! It is the start of the holiday season for us.
