I made the 105 of the best chocolate chip pecan cookies. I was so afraid they wouldn't turn out delicious, but the teenagers came in and my cookies vanished just like that! I am so happy.

My next challenge will be to make cookie dough, roll it out and cut it...I've got energy and I don't know where it's coming from, but I'm going to bake.

I also want to make a cake--Usually no one will eat my cakes, even though I like them. Any good cake recipes on this site that you have tried?

Welcome to VBB, Laura Anne...... we're very glad you've joined.
Look for the recipe for Pineapple Banana Nut cake.  It's the best cake I've ever tasted.
I'm making it "again" to take to a church dinner Sunday.

Welcome Laura Anne W.
 Tis the season for baking Laughing & having the house smell yummy.
One year I made a lot of cutout sugar cookies, put each in a foldover sandwich bag(cheap store brand) & hung on the tree with lights & candy canes, it was a big hit & every person that visited got to pick a cookie as they left.
I do cakes all year, so they are not on my holiday list to bake, I do cookies, & dessert bars, that way there is a nice variety to choose from & a plate of several types look inviting.

Happy baking

Miss Laura Anne my" old go to recipe" is on the back of the Hershey's chocolate can.  My Great Aunt Dean changed the recipe by using hot old strong coffee.  Try it sweetie!  Don't be alarmed if the batter is so thin you can drink it thru a straw.  It is delicious!  It has never let me down yet!  Good luck!
