Need some help with what to bring to a special Christmas party.
I'm bringing an assortment of my A-game cookies such as Chocolate Almond Lace Cookies, as well as Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and Chocolate Crunch Cookies. While the latter two aren't fancy cookies in the least, I've found they disappear real fast at parties. They're kind of like the pigs in blanket appetizer. No one will admit it, but they're the crowd favorite.
I also want to bring a showstopper type dessert. Something that you ooh and ahh at before even tasting it. But I can't spend days making this, it needs to be something that can be whipped up in a few hours.
Right now I'm leaning towards a Buche du Noel or a Cranberry Upside Down Cake. Any other thoughts?
Also, if you have some super wonderful Christmas cookie recipes, I'm all ears.
