Christmas Crack

I make a lot of goodies, so it’s hard for me to choose a favorite, but I’m going to call it now.  After a decade of making it for my neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family, including FOUR pans of it just this week, I think I can safely say that it is the best thing… Continue reading Christmas Crack
