One of my very most favorite Christmas treats are cream cheese mints. And when I say “Christmas treats,” I really mean “any time treats.” But in my brain, these will always be Christmas mints (and Mormon wedding reception mints) because we always made these at Christmas when I was growing up. And the greatest part […]

Caramel Chocolate Pecan Pie

I have a weird and complicated relationship with pecan pie. We get so many requests for pecan pie, especially around this time of year, but I’ve always resisted due to lingering deep-seated tweenage rebellion. But. I kind of love pecan pie. Don’t tell anyone.
