OBP card & A Treat to Share


Card made with newly released stamps from Odd Bird Planet.....I'm having so much fun creating holiday cards with these stamps.
Seldom a day goes by that I'm not found in the kitchen baking something. Today I chose to make Nut Cups and package them as shown above to give out to family and friends this holiday season.
       All the pecans that filled these cups were hand picked by hubby and I while down in Alabama this Thanksgiving.                                                                      

Recipe for NUT CUPS
Dough:
Blend together 1/4 lb. butter, 3 oz. cream cheese, add 1 cup sifted four and blend.
Divide dough into small balls and press into tiny muffin tins

Filling:
3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans), 1 egg, 3/4 cups brown sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, dash of salt, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  

Mix all the ingredients together and fill each of the dough cups with the filling.
Bake in 350 oven for 15 minutes and then 300 oven for 10 min.  
Carefully remove each cup with done, cool and sprinkle with power sugar.

Pecans are without a doubt my very favorite dessert nut. I am going to try to veganize this recipe and give it a try.

Love your card. The scene is adorable.
