Christmas Treat Recipe Blog Hop

Several members of the Center Stage Spotlight Team have joined together to share a special Christmas Treat Recipe Blog Hop event with everyone tonight! They have whipped up some treats in their kitchens and their stamp rooms over the past few weeks so we could compile our very first Recipe Book for StampTV!

Hi there! The recipe I am sharing tonight is a quick and easy favorite around my house. I hope you will like them too! I am going to keep my post short and sweet so you can continue along on the hop. The cookie recipe and card recipe are listed below.

Peanut Butter Dream Bites

Ingredients: · 1 1/4 cups flour, sift or stir before measuring · 1/2 teaspoon salt · 1 teaspoon baking powder · 1/2 cup butter · 1/2 cup peanut butter · 1/2 cup granulated sugar · 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed · 1/2 teaspoon vanilla · 1 egg · 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (for topping)

For crust: Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour mixture, blending well. Place dough in lightly greased 13” x 9” baking dish and flatten to create cookie bottom. Bake at 375° for about 14 to 16 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before adding chocolate topping.

For topping: Melt chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until chips are melted. Pour chocolate over peanut butter crust and refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Cut into bite sized squares and enjoy!

Recipe for Peace, Hope, Love card: Stamps: Festive Frame, A Year of Flowers (Gina K. Designs) Cardstock: PL Ivory, PL Chocolate Kiss, PL Rocket Red (Gina K. Designs), Vintage DP (Webster’s Pages) Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa Embellishments: Cuttlebug Textile Texture EF, Brown Rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Copic Markers (E31, Blender) Check out these designer's blogs for the sweet projects they've designed around their treats:

Reading your recipe I was doing a mental check list to see if I had all of these ingredients and I do! I just might have to make these yet tonight. Your card is beautiful, I love how you stamped the poinsettia behind the sentiment and then added the cut out one, gorgeous coloring.
