Calendars Today by Lois

Today's Christmas
Front Porch

I quote others to better express myself

Never fear shadows. They simply
mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
~ Ruth E. Renkel

Age does not protect you from love.
But love, to some extent,
protects you from age.
~ Jeanne Moreau

We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly,
but let us never lose sight of the reason for the
journey, or miss a chance to see a
rainbow on the way.
~ Gloria Gaither

Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply, to think freely, to
risk life, to be needed.
~ Storm Jameson

I always felt that the great high privilege,
relief, and comfort of friendship was
that one had to explain nothing.
~ Katherine Mansfield

Peppermint Blossoms

1 roll (30 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated
peppermint cookies

6 tablespoons sugar

72 Hershey®’s Kisses® Brand candy
cane flavored candies, unwrapped

1. Heat oven to 350°F.
 2. In bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/2
cup all-purpose flour until well blended. Shape dough
into 72 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in sugar in shallow bowl.
 On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart.
Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
After removing from oven, immediately top each cookie
with 1 candy, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks
around edge. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling
racks. Cool completely before storing.

Happy Friday everyone -- here is wishing you a great weekend. I will
be busy Saturday with my Mother at a church craft and bake sale. We
are taking our caramels and peanut clusters and hoping everyone
