I was in the store this past weekend and when looking at the shelf, I did a cartoon double take. I closed then rubbed my eyes, and when they opened again I was still seeing the same thing – Christmas decorations!
Call me old school but isn’t September just a little bit too early to start thinking about the holidays? After some additional consideration I thought that this was a great time to start planning. While I still believe that it IS too early to be worrying about Christmas, I realized that Halloween is just about 45 days away. Thanksgiving is a month after that and that is the start of the full-fledged holiday party season. The time to start planning is now.
So to get your creative culinary juices flowing, I thought I would give you a couple of quick seasonal suggestions. Here is a quick and easy recipe for Pecan Balls:
- 1 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups chopped Georgia pecans from Pearson Farm
- Powdered sugar
Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla, then flour and pecans. Mix well. Roll into small balls. Bake 30 – 40 minutes on cookie sheet at 300 degrees. Roll in powdered sugar.
But if making holiday treats is not your thing, we have you covered there as well. Pearson Farm offers made from scratch cakes, pies and treats that will make you proud. Here is on example:
