Making Mini Cheeseballs & Pecan Pie & Kisses Macaroon Cookies

This is all going to my husband's Christmas party at work tomorrow. I spent most of the day shopping with my daughter Sarah and I didn't have much time left in this day to make things that were labor intensive so I looked online for easy recipes. The mini cheese ball recipe ( www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/holiday-cheese-truffles-62489.aspx) was a cinch and very good. I don't know why I never thought of making mini ones before! I think  they look better than a single, round ball of cheese on a platter.

I have never made pecan pie before in my life until this past weekend. I found this recipe for pecan pie at http://donna-diegel.suite101.com/pecan-pie-recipe-with-toasted-pecans-a78594. My daughter Jennica took it to her boyfriends house (he's a huge fan of pecan pie).  They loved it. So, I made another one! The recipe is super simple.

The mini cheese balls. When my daughter Sarah looked at this picture she told me that they look like meatballs... I had to laugh because they kind of do in this picture.

The  recipe for the macaroon cookies is on the Hershey's web site. I love anything that has cream cheese in it.  This recipe is a keeper. The cookie is moist, chewy and just sweet enough with the Hershey kiss on top.
