While we were in the Pacific Northwest last year, we ran across a local Mom & Pop distillery that makes Loganberry and Blackberry Liqueur from grapes that are grown at a local winery. After they blend their secret recipe, it rests for a while here to infuse the flavors before distillation. The free sample is all we needed to bring some home.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your support and friendship over the past year. Have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and festive season everyone!

I don't use sherry as can't stand it. Instead, I use Bacardi Oakheart. But you could make sans alcohol or with any you like. Bailey's Chocolate Orange would probably be amazing as would Cherry Southern Comfort or Cointreau.

Wishing you all a joyous and peaceful Christmas and festive season.

....and thank everyone for your support and friendship over the past year.


I thought these red currants looked a little like Christmas baubles, had to hunt to find a bunch that included ripe berries as the birds have been having an early Christmas dinner :-)

Flypaper processing, recipe will be coming to the flypaper blog soon (with luck).

THANK YOU everyone for your visits, comments and favs!

I appreciate your invites and awards very much!

I baked a loaf of Pumpkin Bread and over 9 dozen Christmas cookies this year and places these on a Christmas plate dated 1974 from my in-laws.

The cookies included Cherry Winks, Spritz, Chocolate Chip, M&M, Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Kiss Cherry Cookies.

In the background is my miniature Christmas tea set on placemat and napkins that hubby quilted.


This is the recipe for that one (it doesn't require any eggs) :


Chocolate Kiss Cherry Cookies


1 Cup powdered sugar

1 Cup butter, softened

2 teaspoons Maraschino Cherry Liquid

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

4 Drops red food coloring

2 1/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup Maraschino Cherries, drained and chopped

48 Milk Chocolate Candy Kisses


Preheat oven to 350.

Combine powdered sugar, butter, cherry liquid, extract and food coloring in a mixing bowl.

Mix well.

Add flour and salt.

Mix well.

Stir in the cherries.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and press a candy kiss into the top of each cookie.


YIELD: 48 cookies

In Greece we make two traditional desserts for Christmas. One is kourabies/des, the ones in the photo. The other one is melomakarona (try saying that fast 3 times), which is obviously my favorite, because I would have taken a picture with that one, only I ate them all.


For FGR and feeding face. Not 100% what the group asks for because it's not a candid photo (But only because it was getting quite hard to balance the kourabiedes. You should see my carpet.)
