    Hey girls...since we already have Thanksgiving recipes I figured why not start up a Christmas one as well....I also thought we could start it up early that way we could all get enough ideas to make something new this year.....so I'll start it off with a few of my favorites:

    This is just an appetizer which is so yummy and super simple
    Stuffed mushrooms
    Ingredients: 1-2 containers of mushrooms
    Cream Cheese

    First you remove stems and clean then let dry
    Mix cream cheese and crumbled bacon(i've use bacon bits before to make it quicker instead of frying bacon and works just as well)
    Fill your mushroom tops
    Broil for about 10min or until tops are lightly brown

    Next of course you have to have something sweet
    Mini-Cheesecakes Make: 12
    Ingredients: 12 Vanilla wafers
    2 8-oz. pakages of cream cheese softened
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 eggs

    First Cupcake tin with foil liners.
    Place 1 vanilla wafer in each liner.
    Mix cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs then mix well.
    Pour over wafers filling 3/4 full.
    Bake 25min at 325
    Remove from pan when cool and chill
    Top with your favorite topping(cherry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, nuts....your could also have mixed chocolate chips in with cream cheese mixture as well.

    Anyway...these are just a few....I will add a few more later. Keep them coming girls I need some new ideas this year because i'm having everyone over and I have to cook.

      These sound great, they also sound like they are from All recipes ¢â¬â€œ complete resource for recipes and cooking tips
      I love that website, The mini cheesecakes are very popular at my house :) but insted of a vanilla wafer I mash up graham crackers instead

          This is my most requested appetizer at parties. People fight over the last one!

          Bacon Wrapped Smokies (cocktail weenies)

          This is for 32 snack size weenies:

          2 pounds sliced bacon, cut into thirds
          2 (14 ounce) packages beef cocktail wieners
          1 cup brown sugar, or to taste

          Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
          Wrap each cocktail wiener with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. TIP: I just put a piece of bacon on the cutting board, wrapped the smokie in it until there was a slight overlap, cut the bacon with scissors, & stabbed it with a toothpick. Much easier than cutting the bacon into thirds since the smokies are not always the same size.
          Place on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar generously over all.
          Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sugar is bubbly. To serve, place the wieners in a slow cooker and keep on the low setting.

          They are so delicious and they will be a HUGE hit. I know my friends and family love em!

              I have a drink that we always make for christmas. It's good to have on hand with all the friends visiting and everyone loves it.


              Mix together (you're going to need something kinda large to put it in, such as a gallon size bucket):
              26'er Vodka
              1 frozen Lemonade
              1 frozen orange juice
              7 cups boiling water
              1 cup strong tea
              3/4 cups sugar

              Freeze it. Then when guest come by scoop out a few spoonfuls (however much you like) into a glass and mix with ginger ale.

              ENJOY your nice slushy drink!!

                  yummy... I just got a recipe this morning from my co-worker friend, her dad makes these amazing crab puffs, so these are great for holiday parties:

                  6 english muffins
                  1/4 lb. butter
                  1 jar Kraft old English Cheese Spread
                  8 oz. crab meat
                  dash of garlic salt and pepper

                  mix together and bake in oven for 375 for 5-15 mins, put them under the broiler to make them crispy

                    You guys that stuff has my tummy growling...and that slush sounds evil - I must make it :o)

                    My cousin gives these cookie bars out every Christmas and we devour them. Really easy and delicious!

                    P.S. My aunt doesn't eat coconut so her batch is made with diced dried apricots instead.

                    7 Layer Cookie Bars

                    4 ounces butter
                    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
                    1 (6 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
                    1 (6 oz.) pkg. butterscotch chips
                    1 small can shredded coconut (1 1/3 cups)
                    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
                    1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

                    Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in 9x13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over melted butter; spread crumbs with chocolate chips, then butterscotch chips. Sprinkle coconut over this, then drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over all.

                    Sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes.
                    Cool and cut in 1 1/2-inch squares.
