Place in oven for 15 minutes–reduce heat to 350 and continue baking 45-50 minutes or until tooth pick inserted near center comes out clean. 

Place on rack to cool–serve with a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip. 


1–cup flour 

1/2–cup crisco

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup water

Put flour in bowl mixing in salt 

Add crisco by cutting in pieces– take a fork or pastry tool and cut shortening into flour until flour resembles a course meal–begin adding water until you can shape mixture into a smooth ball –use only amt needed for that. 

Place on floured surface and roll out thin–place in pie pan and use your fingers or fork or what ever method to crimp the edges of crust.

Holiday Recipe~Velvetta Fudge 

Today’s Featured #HolidayDessert #Recipe by Becky GilmanVELVEETA FUDGE


1/2 pound Velveeta cheese, sliced

1 cup butter

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup chopped nuts, pecans, walnuts

2 (16-ounce) boxes confectioners’ sugar

1/2 cup cocoa powder


Spray lightly the bottom of a 9 by 2-inch square pan with a nonstick spray. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the cheese and butter together, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and nuts. In a large bowl sift together the sugar and cocoa. Pour the cheese mixture into the sugar and cocoa mixture and stir until completely mixed. The candy will be very stiff. Using your hands, remove candy from bowl and press evenly and firmly into pan. Because of the amount of butter in this recipe, pat the top of the candy with a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Place pan in refrigerator until candy is firm. To serve candy, cut into squares.

I have to admit when my mom said she made Fudge out if cheese I was not impressed. Then oh then when I slowly bit into a piece, well let’s say the fudge started disappearing fast lol

Holiday Recipe~Chocolate Covered Cranberries 

I have skipped a few days because I am needing some recipe submissions lol but todays featured #HolidayDessert #Recipe is by Kelly Hutchinson. Kelly shared this treat with me last year and we had a great time in the kitchen making these.CHOCOLATE COVERED CRANBERRIES

It Just takes a package of whatever favorite flavor of chocolate you like and one package of fresh cranberries.

Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and then take a few cranberries at a time and put in chocolate once covered take and drop by spoon onto wax paper to set up.

These are great to make ahead of time and freeze them for later. I personally like eating them straight out of the freezer.
