I made some bars inspired by a Sandra Lee recipe, but me being who I am wouldn't use cookie dough from a tube, so I made my own. Hers was called Raspberry Cake Bars Recipe : Sandra Lee : Food Network

I made mine by adding almond extract to the dough, and spread with cherry jam and sliced almonds.
here are mine


I also made truffles, they aren't technically baked, but Oh Well!

I made the most wonderful banana bread yesterday. It was a Pampered Chef recipe for peanut butter-chocolate-banana bread.

Today I'm making some peanut butter clusters but they are no-bake so I guess that doesn't count! Trying to get a start on xmas cookies/candy.

Oh, Frank! What a perfect loaf. Pull off a hunk of that and slather on unsalted butter -- it would give even Christmas cookies a run for their money. And I'm nuts about Christmas cookies.

This morning I baked some of same...oatmeal refrigerator cookies that had chilled all night. Sliced 1/4 inch, put them in the freezer after baking. They're to get a browned butter frosting next week, which may happen or not. I pulled out a few of the "too brown on the edges" ones and put orange marmelade between two. Oh, my. What a good idea that turned out to be.

Been bitter cold, windy and snowing all day here, which made it even nicer to have the oven on. I made two loaves of plain white bread, a batch of English muffins and refrigerator dough for potato dinner rolls. The potato rolls will get baked tomorrow.

I spent eleventy-billion dollars at the grocery store on Sat so I could get my bake on this week. Tonight I started with my Peanut Blossoms. But guess what, I didn't buy freakin' chocolate stars. So I tested a couple with adding chocolate chips and a couple others where I put the chips on top after they came out. They're going inside. And they taste divine.
