Scrap Jessi's Cookie Swap

Eggnog Tarts

4 dozen baked tart shells
2 cups whipping cream
1 large package instant vanilla
3 cups eggnog

Prepare pudding following instructions on the box substituting eggnog for milk. Let stand 5-10 minutes. In another bowl whip cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar to taste. Fold ½-2/3 of the whipped cream into the pudding. Fill each tart shell with the pudding mixture, add a dollop of whipped cream & garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg. Keep refrigerated. Can be frozen but you'll eat them all before they get there.

Red Velvet Oreos

2 boxes Red Velvet Cake Mix

4 eggs

3/4 cup cooking oil

Cream Cheese Icing

Mix together. It will be a stiff cookie dough. Roll into 1/2 inch balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet leaving lots of room for them to spread out. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool cookies completely. Use cream cheese icing to "sandwich" two cookies together. Store in an airtight container and they will stay soft. You can roll the edges in crushed candy cane to make them look pretty (though the cookies are quite sweet and don't really need it).

Your cookies look great! I was looking at the pictures of the bracelets from our toggle party and I saw you added some beaded Christmas words - were those there or did you make them? I am asking because I am looking for 4 letters in those exact beads and I can't find them!!!

Jerri-Lea said...

Tamara, the letter charms were extras I took along to fill my bracelet! Of course I really didn't need them but I decided to try and stick to the white and red for that bracelet. You can pick up the single letters at the Bead Hive in Circle Park mall. I added a red bead to top and bottom.
