The card front, the pockets are empty right now. When the card front is full they hold the two red circles which would contain your treasured recipes, they each have a ribbon attached to let you pull them out of the pockets better.
The two recipe holders are now in the front pockets.
The back of the card, LOL. See ~ there is no inside of this holder.
The treat holder, a recycled pail. I used the same paper and ribbion on this as I did the card/recipe holder.
The treat pail lid, I think this is so cute!
The whole package, the card/recipe holder, the red recipe cards, the treat pail and the goodies.
I have a recipe for you, one we try and make each year called Holiday Snowballs, they were made this year also as you can see in the photos.
1/2 Cup butter
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Cup ground Walnuts or Pecans
1 Cup Flour
Mix butter with sugar until creamy, add vanilla, flour and nuts, mixing well. Wrap in waxed paper and chill until easy to handle. Shape dough into one inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake in oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and while still hot, roll in powdered sugar. Place on cooling rack and when cool, roll again in the powdered sugar. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
Here is what my family does for the Holidays, we have a cookie bake!! There are rows and rows of cookies, our best guess is around 100 DOZEN cookies, We are all worn OUT and up a few pounds!
Thank you for stopping in, feel free to help yourself to some cookies, there is more than enough for everyone! Hope your family has some of your own favorite family recipe traditions. Have a great week, blessings, Jane
