 Today is my day to post.  One of my favorite recipes at Christmas time is what my mother made when I was a child.  She called them Candied Cookies.    I've googled this and found many variations...but this is my mother's recipe....

1 Stick of Butter

2 C. of Sugar

1/2 C.  Milk

2Tbls. Cocoa

3 C. of Oats Meal

on med.. heat, place the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa in a pan for 4 minutes..stirring occasionally..  Add the oatmeal to the mixture, mix well.    With a spoon, drop on wax paper and let cool until hard. 

Sorry I don't have a picture, but I can assure you, they are delicious.  

I've been wanting to make a Christmas Sampler Quilt...I started one last year.  I'm still working on it.  I got about 5 or 6 blocks done.  Here are a couple I've made.  You need a Christmas Tree,

and a present to put under the tree,

and a kind of witness to Santa coming...

Now head over and check out all the folks that posted today.
