How To Freeze Pecan Balls

Guess what? There is no difference between frozen and freshly made pecan balls. I tested them myself and asked two other people to do a blind taste test and no one could tell the difference. This is good news because anything you can make ahead for the holidays is helpful. I’m sure there is more than one way to freeze these delicate Christmas snowball cookies but here is how I did mine:

  1. Once they were completely cool and after the second roll in powdered sugar I gently placed them in a freezer bag so they were not touching.
  2. I removed as much air as possible from the bag and placed them gently in the freezer.
  3. To thaw I let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then brought them to room temperature.
  4. Then I gently rolled them in powdered sugar again to freshen them up.

So there it is. This is how you can freeze your homemade pecan balls and have extra time for…. making more! Click here for the recipe.  – Jenny Jones

These are Some Big Cookies

crispy_oatmeal_chocolate_chip_cookiesHere’s a closeup of my Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are big! These are the ones made with 100% whole grains and no butter. Before baking you press them flat with a fork and they spread even more when they bake and come out super thin and crispy. I made them last night and the recipe makes twelve. There are five left.

KATHY MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD
“Hi Jenny! I finally made your no knead bread and it was easy and delicious! My family loved it! Thanks as always!”

ALI G MADE MY SIMPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE WITHOUT BUTTER
“Wow! Husband approved. I had Aldi cocoa, a Myer lemon and I cheated (putting 2 Tbsp butter ONLY in the glaze to thicken it). Thank you SO much. A dear friend whose beautiful little boy is deathly allergic to eggs will love this. Ours turned out delicious! May the LORD Bless and keep you always. Yummo! Only wish I could claim this recipe as my own. 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”

ELIZABETH  MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD
“Hi Jenny, so glad I discovered you on youtube. You are a very funny lady to watch! Last night I prepared some dough (half whole wheat and half white flour) and I put it in the oven this morning. Soooo easy! Even though I am Dutch myself, I never used my ‘dutch oven’ for baking bread, but I will from now on! I love this no-knead bread (ongekneed brood). Thank you for sharing this recipe! Elizabeth, from the Netherlands”

“Hi Jenny, as I promised, I´m letting you know the great pizza I prepared today with your recipe. It´s the first time I make pizza, so I also decided to make a home made sauce and topped the pizza with sliced calamata olives. Used a rectangular pan because it was what I had available. I just baked it while we watch the Barcelona – Real Madrid game. My husband loooooved the pizza!! It´s just a delicious pizza. Thanks a lot Jenny! (I should have prepared two pizzas!! hahahahahaha)”
