Ice cream pies are easy.  Just put softened pink peppermint ice cream into a chocolate oreo pie crust.  Wrap with heavy duty foil and freeze till solid.  When serving cut into slices and top with your favorite fudge sauce -  bought or homemade and a dollop of whipped cream or whipped topping.  We also like coffee ice cream in a chocolate oreo crust.

Nancy I can't believe you are going to make cookies and candy!  Wink

What kind are you going to make?  Something different or a tried and true recipe?

I think I am going to try something new...
Sacher Torte sounds good and I have enough time to read the recipe and get my list together.  Since I am not going to be making dinner I can spend some time making the Torte.
At least I don't think I am going to be making dinner unless I can get a ride to the store.

One of my favorite pies is Pecan but I am the only one that will eat it so I only get it if I go out and it is on a menu...but it has to be at a place that has good pie/pastry.  A bad pecan pie is all too common in many places.  I sure don't want to waste the calories on bad pecan pie ;)

I have a couple new cookie recipes but I'll mostly use my old 'proven' ones.
Candy will be all old recipes ........... divinity, peanut brittle, candied nuts, fudge ..... stuff like that.
Today is wet and dreary - not a candy day.

I have suggested this for years....Salvation Army, Goodwill and all the other resale shops for plates to put cookies on to give away.  This helps out a worthy group, keeps paper plates out of the landfill and looks so much more festive. And you don't have to worry about getting the plate returned. Tea cups and saucers are also a great way to give away candy and cookies. Not to mention a selection of teas could be packaged with a few cookies and maybe a book.

I used to do this all the time the only problem is my little Grandma friends always tried to return the plates or containers.lol Too funny.Unlike the younger generation when you want your containers back you have to keep asking please bring back my containers! lol (my oldest boy is good for this) The one year I found some beautiful plates at goodwill.One I found had a Cardinal our state bird sitting on a snow covered pine branch as soon as I saw that I knew who was getting a plateful of cookies on that one.I try to match containers to the person I'm giving them to.My one neighbor is a joker and I found a coffee mug shaped like a toilet,guess who got that filled with Buckeyes! He got such a kick out of that! Now is great time to go to the thrift stores they all have there Christmas stuff for sale.

I've been "recycling" gift plates for years, for delivering my homemade goodies. I love Goodwill, and when I can't find anything there, I usually have good luck at Ross' or Marshall's. I tape a note to the plate or bowl, under the goodies, telling the recipient they must keep the plate or bowl!  And if they don't want it, they can pass it along to someone else.

I made the Pecan Caramel Cheesecake Cookie Cups and loved them. I was wondering if anyone has tried to make a full size cheesecake using this recipe. If you have, please let me know.
