Day 2 Creative Cuts and More Recipe Hop!

Welcome, today is the second day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop which features the Apron Holiday Treats Recipe Kit. We have 24 designers who will be showcasing wonderful pages and yummy Holiday Treat recipes. If you came from anywhere other then Debs Blog, Please go back to Die Cut Diva to begin the hop!

I used almost everything in the kit except for a few different random ribbon, the pearls on the gingerbread man, and thread. I hope you enjoy!

As a part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days we will offer 20% off the entire store. But act quickly, its only for six days-this sale will end on Nov. 14th. Make sure to enter this code recipe blog hop2009 during checkout.

As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will of course give away great gifts. Each day we will give away one kit. Here is the twist - go through the blog hop, leave wonderful comments for all the great designers. After you have finished the blog hop, return HERE to DieCutDiva.com and instead of leaving a comment, you need to share a recipe to have a chance at winning the kit. Share the recipe on your blog and link it back and get another chance to win the kit. Help us also make this a great recipe swap!!!!

Now its time to hop a long to : Amber

My recipe is :

Norwegian Cookies

1 cup sugar

1cup butter or margarine

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 cups flour

1/2 cup finely-chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350F . In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and extracts: beat until light and fluffy. Add flour and nuts and beat until just moistened. Cover and chill until firm enough to handle. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake until cookies are set.
