I decided to make Latkes(potato pancakes) for the first time. My Jewish friends said this a very traditional dish served for Hanukkah and easy to make. You can enjoy it with some sour cream or apple sauce.
I wanted to also make something very festive and came across this cute Driedal Treat idea. It is just marmallows with a pretzel stick on top and nutella and a hershey kiss at the bottm. Then hebrew letters drawn with frosting gel.
I LOVE Eggnog!! If you love eggnog just as much as I do then you will love this easy eggnog milkshake recipe.
-1 cup of eggnog
-1 cup of vanilla ice cream
- 6 Ginger Snap cookies
Blend the ice cream, eggnog and cookies. Pour into a glass and top with whip cream. To make it INSANE I garnished the rim with frosting and crushed ginger snap cookies. I also added an eggnog cake roll and homemade eggnog donuts.
I had to make donuts using my absolute favorite holiday beverage, EGGNOG!!!
-1 cup of flour
-1/3 cup of sugar
-3/4 tsp of baking powder
-1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
-pinch of nutmeg
-1/4 tsp of salt
-1/2 cup of eggnog
-2 tbs of vegetable oil
-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
-3 tbs of eggnog
-2 tbs of water
-1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Prheat the oven to 425 degrees and lightly grease your donut pan.
In abowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Then add the eggnog, egg, vegetable oil and vanilla until mixed well.
Put the batter in a large ziploc bag and cut the tip and fill the donut pan.
Bake for 6-7 minutes.
To make the the glaze , just simply whisk together the powdered sugar, eggnog and water.
Once cool dip into the eggnog glaze.
I was really fascinated by the Unicorn Poop cookies that I had to create a festive version with the Holidays approaching. So why not make Elf Poop Cookies? They taste like peppermint because an Elf's diet surely consists of candy canes! LOL
-1/2 cup of softened butter
-1/2 cup of shortening
-1/4 cup of cream cheese
-1/2 tsp of salt
-1 cup of sugar
-1/2 tsp of peppermint extract
-2 cups of flour
-red and green food coloring
-red glitter icing
In a bowl, combine the butter, shortening and cream cheese and beat well. Then add the sugar and salt.
Beat in the egg and peppermint until combined. Then gradually add the flour.
Divide the dough in half in two seperate bowls and add the food coloring( one red and the other green).
Wrap the red and green balls of dough individually with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 20 minutes or in the fridge for an hour.
Set the oven to 375 degrees.
Remove the dough and place on some some wax paper on the counter(this way you don't need to use flour). Take a tbs size ball of the red dough and roll into a rope. Then do the same for the green dough. Then twist and coil the two together and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Once the cookies are cool I went ahead and put some red glitter icing and sprinkles on top.
