    Since I road-tested these this Summer they are a new "tradition" (everyone keeps asking for them)
    sorry, no pics

    BACON CRACK-ERS < THEY'RE ADDICTIVE

    1 BOX TOWNHOUSE CRACKERS (I USED WHOLE GRAIN)
    1 LB BACON
    GRATED PARMESAN
    BROWN SUGAR

    *CUT BACON SLICES INTO THIRDS
    *SPRINKLE EACH CRACKER WITH ABOUT 1 TEASPOON GRATED CHEESE OR BROWN SUGAR
    *WRAP A BACON SLICE SNUGLY AROUND EACH CRACKER - BE SURE THE ENDS MEET UNDERNEATH
    *PUT CRACKERS ON A RACK ON A FOIL-LINED COOKIE SHEET & BAKE AT 250 FOR 1 HOUR
    *SEE HOW MANY YOU CAN AVOID EATING BEFORE THEY COOL
    *SERVE LEFTOVERS TO GUESTS

    Easy recipe for biscotti so good people will ask where you bought them:

    CAKEMIX BISCOTTI

    1 BOX CAKEMIX - ANY FLAVOR YOU LIKE*
    1 STICK BUTTER
    1 CUP FLOUR
    2 EGGS
    ADD-INS <CHOCOLATE CHIPS, DRIED FRUIT, NUTS

    *MIX TOGETHER TO FORM A VERY STIFF DOUGH
    *ON A COOKIE SHEET LINED WITH PARCHMENT PAPER, FORM DOUGH INTO 2 LOGS ABOUT 2" WIDE, FLATTEN SLIGHTLY
    *BAKE ON COOKIE SHEET AT 350F FOR 30 MINUTES
    *REMOVE FROM OVEN, LET COOL 15MIN THEN SLICE DIAGONALLY INTO 1/2" SLICES, SEPARATE SLICES SLIGHTLY - DON'T LAY SLICES FLAT, LEAVE THEM STANDING (I JUST USE THE KNIFE TO PUSH THEM APART A LITTLE)
    *BAKE 10 MINUTES MORE

    *I've used chocolate cake with white chocolate chips, lemon cake with dried cranberries, German chocolate cake with pecans, use your imagination!

    You can also dip the ends of the cooled biscotti in melted chocolate to make them even more decadent

    Oh thank you, I remember that first recipe. I think I will try it this year. It sure sounds good, wasn't there two ways you could do them? Is this the best way for flavors?

    The biscotti I may try too, I know some family would like them.

    I was hoping for more responses since it is holiday time.

    Quote:The ony 2 ways I use for the crackers are with cheese or with brown sugar.
    Honestly, they are too easy to be so good [​IMG]

    The biscotti are also easy and the result looks like you took a whole lot of time.
    Really good for dipping into coffee too.

    I've also made AhBee's Pumpkin Crunch Cake (w/o the whipped topping)- people loved it!
