Cook and stir over medium heat just until it starts to crystalize. Pour onto a cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes. Stir and bake for 10 minutes more.

  18. My favorite Christmas cookies are decorated sugar cookies– the recipe that I use is not terribly sweet, mainly the icing on them is what makes them sweet– and they are SOOO good with a hot cup of coffee!!!! Hope I can make some time to do some this year– they’re just a big part of Christmas to me and my family! 🙂 As for my favorite Christmas candy, that would have to by my Mom’s homemade chocolate fudge with pecans— mouthwateringly (is that a word?;-) delicious! 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win!

  24. I would love to win this! I really want to improve my FMQ skills 😉 I can’t have gluten, so I don’t eat many cookies, however, I am making some snicker doodles tomorrow. Instead of flour I’m using ground almonds. I haven’t tasted them yet, but the batter is delish 😉

  25. What a nice giveaway. I am entering a group that is going to learn FMQ and would love to win your giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  26. I am so boring. I just like the recipe from the back of the toll house chocolate chip morsels bag. One thing I do different though is I use my food processor. I think it makes a creamy batter, which makes a smoother cookie.

  27. sounds like some tasty treats in the comments. I always make almond bread to share with my family and friends. My sister makes the delicious treats for our Christmas

  28. Favorite, is not really a cookie…Muddy Buddies, grandkids love them with their Hot Chocolate, after GOOD ride on the Sled to the River…Crossing toes for the Great Dvd…Thank you for the opportunity to win this 🙂

  30. I love chocolate chip cookies. I really need to learn how to machine quilt better so would really appreciate this.

  31. I would love to win this – I love Leah Day’s work. My favorite Christmas treat is my grandmother’s fudge recipe. It takes forever to make but is amazing!

  32. It’s not a candy or cookie! On Christmas Eve, we make slizikay (from Lithuania). These are little yeast “buns” with poppy seeds about the size of a marshmallow. These are baked, let to cool and then put into a bowl with sugared water. Yummy! Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway, Dianne

  33. Favourite candy at Christmas are the big red, white and red gum drops. We leave a bag in our van for a treat.

  34. Hello! You are my first stop on the blog hop! This will be fun! I love to make pumpkin cookies, an old Joy of Cooking recipe that I change up. That machine quilting sampler looks awesome!

  35. pizzelle cookies, snickerdoodles, Hermits are some of my favorite cookies to make and I will be making gingerbread houses and peanut brittle this week…

  36. I’m very excited for this giveaway since learning FMQ is my goal for 2012. My favorite treat to eat is Cranberry fudge, but my favorite to make is Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies from Martha Stewart.

  37. Favorite treat? Sugar cookies. You know the kind that you roll out, use the adorable cookie cutters and then colored frosting and sprinkles. Oh, who doesn’t love sprinkles on their cookies?!

  38. My favorite cookie is my mother in law’s butter cookies, which we make every year for Christmas. Thanks so much!

  39. I forgot to say that my favorite cookie is English Drops. There’s chocolate, nuts, raisins, and coffee in them, then they are frosted with vanilla frosting.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  41. I would love to try my hand at free motion quilting and your dvd looks like the perfect start! Thank you for the chance to win! My mother used to make candied orange and grapefruit peels for the holidays and we loved them!

  42. I make a Pecan Fruit Square every year for Christmas, it has become a tradition for us. I am teaching myself free motion quilting and I would love a copy of this CD! Merry Christmas

  43. Hi Thank you for a great giveaway I can use the dvd. I have only been quilting awhile. I like to make and eat peanut butter fudge and cookies. E-mail me for the recipe. Happy Holiday to you and yours.

  44. I love making “Chow Mein Cookies.” They are made with melted chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, then chow mein noodles are stirred in. They are the perfect sweet/salty cookie. However, they are very addictive! Love your quilting work – I’ve been following your blog for a while.

  45. I love plain sugar cookies. They just melt in my mouth and are so decadent–all that butter and sugar…YUM!

  46. I have many favorites! One of them is a cookie made from finely chopped pecans – Pecan Dainties. You roll small balls of dough, stick your index finger in the ball, then fill the hole with jam. Raspberry is the best. Yum.

  47. I love chocolate fudge with Bailey’s thrown in. Yum. I can’t wait. I have so much fun making them.

  48. Fudge. I love that you can mix it up with peanut butter, candy canes, marshmallows, hershey kisses…anything. And it’s always so rich and yummy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. I make some wonderful, sinful, delish cookies for Christmas and other special events. You put chocolate chip cookie dough in a mini-muffin tin and nestle a Reese cup in the middle. Bake them and try not to eat every one!!! Thanks for the great giveaway! I haven’t quilted in awhile, so I am pretty rusty and this would be a perfect re-introduction!

  50. My favorite treat is called Haystacks – large marshmallows, dipped in melted caramel, then rolled in Rice Krispies. My grandma always made these.

  51. My best Christmas cookie is M&M cookies. Take a basic Chocolate Chip recipe and replace the chocolate chips with M&M’s. It’s always a hit at my house 🙂

  52. I hate to say this but I am not much of a cook or baker. I did make fudge last year that turned out pretty good though.

  53. I love making my grandmother’s sugar cookies. Last year I came upon a recipe for peanut brittle and tried it and liked that so that may be a new tradition for us. Thanks for the opportunity!

  54. I always loved spun sugar on a stick at the yearly agricultural show as a child and recently found a bag at my local store. I hadn’t eaten it for years but it still dissolves so effortlessly in your mouth it’s quite intriguing fascinating stuff!

  55. What a great way to practice FMQ!

    In the past I’ve helped my grandmother make my great-grandmother’s Italian biscotti recipe. But sometimes just plain sugar cookies that are decorated to the hilt are fun to make too.

  56. I’ve never free-motion quilted…I think I have a mental block about doing it! This dvd would be excellent. My favorite Christmas cookie/candy would be Buckeyes…chocolaty and rich!

  57. I would LOVE to WIN your great giveaway!
    My favorite cookie is a rasien filled cookie, my grandmother recipe!

  58. Ok, I make a similar cookie with cheerios or rice crispies, and found another simple substitute when you are in a hurry, but it’s a refrigerated cookie (doesn’t keep well at room temp). Try using (2) 6 oz. bags of butterscotch chips (they will melt in the MW) instead of the sugar & Karo syrup. Reduce the Peanut butter to 1 cup, & add 1 stick (1/2 c. melted) Butter, to the butterscotch chips. When you have melted & stirred these 2 together, add peanut butter, stir until melted & add the cereal & other items. Pour into buttered pan & chill. Sometimes we melt some choc chips to drizzle over top. These freeze really well too.

  59. I love shortbread, my kids love snickerdoodles, frosted @ Christmas.
    Thanks for this giveaway…I really like Leah Day & found her site from another blogger a year ago. She may seem young, but has accomplished a lot in a very short time. 365 days of FMQ, quite a challenge.

  60. Oh, Leah Day’s DVD is wonderful! I love Gingerbread and Spritz cookies like my Grandma Alva made at Christmas Time the best. Thank you for a great giveaway. Merry Christmas. Kd

  61. Nut Cresent cookies are my favorite, but the recipe makes too many cookies for us to eat. So I must share them with others. We just make them once each year. I love Leah Day’s work, but don’t have the DVD. Would love to win it.

  62. My favorite candy this time of year is Martha Washington candy. I would love to own Leah Day’s DVD!

  63. Merry Christmas !! My favorite cookies are kolacki’s (polish cookies), I love to make them into bite size shapes !!
    Thanks for the great giveaway !!
