Caramel Shortbread
I've made this recipe several times over the past few years and have had tasty success each time :) Be sure to beat the crumb mixture for a long time before pressing into the pan and doing the fork-holes I also use a larger pan, I htink it's a 9x13 (glass rectangle) and that's the best change I've done. It allows each layer to be thinner so everything is less prone to crumbling but still oh so delish ;) I also cut them into teeny tiny squares, use high quality milk chocolate bar for half the pan and dark or semi-sweet with coarse sea-salt sprinkled on top for the other half. Both variations get rave reviews and I always end up making another batch before the holidays are over. (Have one baking up this moment). Give 'er a try, it's great!

Apple Strudel Muffins
These were tasty, though I may keep looking for the 'ultimate' apple muffins. I make fresh muffins and such for my husbands crew each week and had some gorgeous Okanagan apples to use. I did 1 1/2 shredded, 1 1/2 chopped, cut the sugar to 1/2 cup (plenty sweet!), and sub'd apple sauce for the oil. Without the doubled apples I think they may have been too dry? I added some quick oats to the topping. Nice warm with butter :)

Orange Pecan Cookies
These cookies are AMAZING!!! Seriously. If you are looking for the ultimate Christmas cookie these are SO perfect. This recipe has become a Xmas cookie favorite in our home; I just made it for the third time. The flavors of orange and chocolate and 'nuttiness' are comforting and classy. Some things I've adjusted: -I sometimes roll them into 'fingers' and then dip them, kinda fun for presentation. - I always have issues with using the chocolate chips and reccomend quliaty semi-sweet or dark baking chocolate instead. - Toast the pecans first for a richer flavour - Squish the dough balls down, they're better if they're a wee bit thinner - A add a bit of orange zest right into the melted chocolate, and a splash of orange liquor into the dough Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
