Cheese Crackers

These little crackers are great for the lunchbox, but you can also make them into holiday shapes, sticks or twists for holiday entertaining.

I found these on Minced, you can visit that site for the complete recipe.  Please do visit that website for detailed instructions and to see the beautiful pictures.  Her pictures are much nicer and more elegant than mine (I barely know how to use my camera).

Basically you place the following ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the dough forms, keep it going, it will come together.

1/2 lb grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into thin slices
1 cup all purpose flour, more for dusting
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Cayenne pepper (optional – to taste)

Preheat oven to 350F. Once you have the dough roll it out and cutout and shape as desired.


Bake for about 10 minutes, just until puffed and slightly golden at edges.

Snowballs

There seemed to be some problems with my reblogged post, so lets see if this works!  This is one of our very early posts and we have so many newer followers since this post we thought we would share it again. This is a Christmas staple and an excellent addition to any Christmas cookie tray. We are making these right now, Evie is rolling in coconut as I type!

I should call these cookies Newfoundland snowballs.

These are cookies that I grew up eating and Evie loves them now.  I haven’t met anyone that didn’t like them.  I made a batch recently and shared with a few people.  They are really easy, no bake and quick to make with few ingredients.

The coconut used is fine or medium desiccated unsweetened coconut.

Put the first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan and melt stirring to combine.

Into another bowl add the next 3 ingredients and mix to combine.

Add the melted butter mixture to the oat mixture and mix.  Let this cool, I usually put it in the fridge for about half an hour until it will hold shape when rolled into balls.

Roll into balls and then roll in coconut.  That is it!

These also freeze well and are good in the freezer for a few months.  Sometimes I freeze…

In My Kitchen December 

It is December!! How did that happen? I completely missed the November meet up.  Can you believe that our next IMK will be in 2017?!

Here are a few things that have been in our kitchen.

We had Canadian Thanksgiving back in October so I used up the turkey bones and make stock in the slow cooker. It is now in the freezer to be used for soup later.

Teeny tiny panettone. Seriously the size of a muffin.


I had started my first sourdough starter….then it died😩 I will try again later.


Made this white bean and garlic soup, it was delicious 


Panda bun


Green Thai curry

Really cute mushrooms 
And a pump lid for a mason jar that now holds my dish washing liquid 


It works great
