Breads, Pies, Bars- Oh My!

We are relaxing and recovering from a fun and very busy holiday weekend.  Photos will be shared soon.  Hope you all had great Thanksgiving! 

On to Christmas!

Dare to DIY Blog Party

The theme of Kim's DIY party this week is COOKIES! 

Last year I shared my Grandmother's Missouri Cookies.  Since my Cookies and Cocktails holiday party is weeks away, I have yet to start baking..... except for the 6 hours of baking my sister and I did the day before Thanksgiving.

The results of our work~

None of our goodies are technically cookies but I thought I'd share fun, festive recipe regardless.  
Cranberry Supreme Pie (the half eaten pie in the foreground of the photo)

-1/2 c walnuts

Oh my gosh... I can't believe you did all that baking. I'm exhausted just looking at it.

Thanks for linking up! All those goodies look great.

I've never thought about using cranberries in a pie...but this sounds fantastic!

Oo I've always wanted to do something with fresh cranberries other than just cranberry sauce! This is great! Thanks for sharing!

Holy cow, you can still type...and sit upright, after all that baking? Great job! And the Cranberry Pie is definitely on my "to try" list.
