I love sweets any time of the year but most of the time, I can keep a reign on my cravings....but Christmas time is a whole other story. I just have NO willpower. Can NOT say NO.....
WOW...I was surfing thru blogland, with a full stomach, I might add here, when I happened upon JEN'S site, THE COTTAGE NEST.blogspot.com/ and ran face first into this sugary treat. If you will go over to her delightful site, you will find a recipe for this dream pie!
Needless to say, my sweet tooth started aching so bad I could barely concentrate on anything else. I went to another blog but.....JEN kept calling me back. "Oh, to heck with it...I KNOW I have something good in that kitchen that's dripping in sugar" so off I went.....
NOW, if you will remember...I had this piece of homemade, pecan pie.... And, if I'd not eaten every bit of the pie, I could fix a cup of coffee and pull this out of the freezer and just laughed at JEN...."HA..." I would have said...." I, too, have a scrumptious piece of homemade pie!! Just check it out!!"
BUT...oh, noooooo....I have already told you that I eat every single thing I bake until it is every bit gone. So....when I saw JEN'S luscious looking pie, sweet- hungry hit me like a ton of bricks. To the kitchen, looking thru the freezer...NOTHING...NOTTA....ZERO sweets in there. I was reduced to this little sweet, cute as a button Christmas cake that you buy in a BOX, wrapped in plastic wrap, no where getting even CLOSE to Homemade and containing about 8 of them. (Par for the course..I only had ONE because I HAD ALREADY DEVOURED THE REST!!!!! SUCH A BUMMER! Sooo, here's that little, lone Christmas cake that TRIED to take the place of JEN'S homemade pie but it fell 'waaaaay short!!
So, JEN was lucky..BJ wasn't !!!! And, JEN had the last laugh !!!! :(
So, please...don't eat ALL of what you bake.....SAVE SOME FOR ME!! :)
