We had an early Christmas with part of our family on Saturday and this was one of the desserts I made. It was a big hit, but most in the family will eat just about anything that has peanut butter and chocolate. I am sure you could use other brands of candy bars, although I have not yet tried that.

Snickers Pie Recipe

5 SNICKERS® candy bars (2.07 ounces each)
1 9-inches pastry shell
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 c. sour cream
1/3 c. peanut butter
2/3 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. whipping cream

Cut candy bars into 1/4-inch pieces and place in the pastry shell; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, sour cream and peanut butter; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into pastry shell.
Bake at 325°F for 35-40 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack. In a small heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat until smooth. Spread over filling. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Cut with a warm knife.
Yield: 8-10 servings. Can use a graham cracker, Oreo cookie or other favorite pie crust. Refrigerate until ready to serve and refrigerate any leftovers.

Eggplant French Fries Recipe

2 eggplants
2 cups almond flour
Cayenne pepper to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten
Coconut Oil Spray

Peel and cut the eggplant into french-fry shapes. Set aside.

In a shallow bowl, stir together the almond flour, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Place the eggs in a separate bowl and whip until frothy. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Dip the eggplant pieces into the egg, then into the flour mixture, then back into the egg, and back into the flour mixture.
Place the eggplant on a cookie sheet (I sprayed that with the coconut oil), then spray eggplant with a dusting of coconut oil.
Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy and brown.

Note: I reheated them in the oven the next day because the eggplant I used was HUGE, and they got even crispier.

Make sure to watch the ketchup…those sugars can really add up.

This pie has a wonderful blend of flavors, and is especially
good to serve during the holidays. I also like it because it's
easy to put together. If you don't have time to prepare your
own pie crust, the frozen Marie Callender crusts work well.

Cherry Cranberry Pie

1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
1 (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. quick-cooking tapioca
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter
Pastry for 2-crust 9 inch pie

Combine in a bowl, all pie ingredients, except butter. Let stand for 15 minutes. Fill pastry-lined pie pan with fruit mixture. Dot with butter. Adjust top crust; seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top for steam to escape. Bake at 400 for 35 to 40 minutes. Cover edges of crust with foil, if brown too rapidly. Cool before serving.

I have another request.
Has anyone ever made meringue cookies using Splenda? I have been diabetic since 2001, so know all about watching carbs as well as sugar. My husband is not diabetic, but has it in his family and wants to avoid it. He can eat some sugar, but wants me to make my recipes into sugar free to help him keep his sugar counts down. It occurred to me that this cookie should be lower in carbs as well. Thank you all for the help you have given me in the past with making sugar free cookies from sugar free cake mixes. I hope someone has tried this one, too. If I don't write again before Christmas, I wish you all a very merry and happy holiday season.

to; Dianne in Wisconsin, This is the best answer I could find for defining a cube of butter from ask.com. Hope this helps.
Jean in Wa.

A cube of butter is equivalent to 0.113398 kilograms or a quarter cup and it can also be equated to four tablespoons or approximately 59.25 millimetres.

Am not sure when making these became a Christmas tradition around our house but has been for as long as I can remember. Whether we made other cookies or any candy, these were a must. Hope you enjoy them!! Sherry (Indiana)

Great Scots Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups oatmeal (not instant)
1 cup butterscotch morsels
1 cup raisins

Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Set aside.

Combine 1 cup sugar, butter and eggs. Beat until creamy. Add flour mixture and milk to egg mixture. Stir in oatmeal, butterscotch morsels, raisins and sunflower seeds.

Drop by tablespoons on greased cookie sheets*. Bake at 350F for 12-14 minutes. Makes 4 dozen.

* note - I put foil on the cookie sheet and spray it. Then I can just lift off the foil and cookies can cool elsewhere while I have the pan to use for the next batch
