First Day of December!!!

Its the first day of December, and that means . . . *drum roll* there are only 25 more days until Christmas!!!!  This Christmas, like I have already mentioned in a previous post, our family is trying focus more on the real reason for this season . . . Christ's coming into this world!!!  We are planning on caroling for the nursing home up in Black Mountain, baking goodies for the neighbors, and showing more hospitality this year.  I am soooo excited!  It really makes Christmas so much more special and meaningful by celebrating it in this way.

I have decided to write a special Christmas post every week including one of our favorite holiday recipes and one of our traditional Christmas movies until the big day itself.  To start off, I figured that 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' just had to be first in the favorite Christmas movies.

*Favorite quote from the movie: - "I wan't to be a dentist." :)
Ever noticed how Rudolph sounds like he has a bad cold through the whole film?  :D


For my first holiday recipe of the season, how about cheese pennies!

These are one of my dad's favorite snacks for the winter.  They are quick, easy, and taste really good :)

*2 sticks butter
*1/2 lb grated cheese (sharp)
*2 cups flour (sifted)
*1 tsp salt
*3/4 tsp cyanne pepper
*3 cups rice krispies

*Mix butter & cheese at room temp, along with cyanne pepper.  
*Mix in flour & salt .
*Mix in the rice krispies.  
*Roll up into very small balls & flatten with a fork on an ungreased cookie sheet.  
*Cook at 400 Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, but be careful not to burn the bottoms!
*Makes 90 pennies.

Hope you enjoy!   I look forward to sharing more of our family traditions and recipes with you this Christmas!
