Happy Boxing Day! Damn I love this holiday. There’s nothing quite like a day dedicated to boxing up your old crap and taking it to Goodwill – while listening to Christmas music, of course, because technically the Christmas season doesn’t end until New Year’s Day. (Actually, technically it doesn’t end until January 6th when the 12 days of Christmas wraps up, but sometimes I don’t like to push my luck with the husband.) And that, kids, means you still have plenty of time to make these cookie cutter mini pizzas.

Nailed It/Failed It: Cookie Cutter Mini Pizzas


Nailed it. These were as delectable as they were adorable. I’ve declared them our Christmas Eve dinner tradition.


I didn’t actually open the link so much as squeal with excitement when I saw the pin and apply it to my pizza recipes (regular and BBQ chicken).

I, along with my sisters, am borderline completely obsessed with tradition. And, if you ask my parents, it never took much for us to declare something a tradition. Basically we had to do it once. Mostly these traditions apply to Christmas – watching Christmas Vacation Thanksgiving night, cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas morning, stockings before breakfast, gifts after breakfast. . .you get the idea.

Also in the tradition mix? The type of Christmas cookies to be baked. Acceptable ones include sugar cookies, mint sandwich cookies, Mexican wedding cakes, and peanut butter blossoms. Unacceptable ones include chocolate chip cookies (why my dad thinks those are Christmas cookies I will never understand).

Based on the above information, you can see how it took a fair amount of courage for my husband to suggest a new type of cookie to add to the mix. And you can see how it was nothing short of a Christmas miracle that I acquiesced.

Nailed It/Failed It: Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz Sandwiches


Nailed it. The husband and I have renamed these Crackies because a) they’re cookies made from crackers (we’re so clever!), and b) they’re addictive. Ridiculously so. You’ve been warned.


To be completely honest, I didn’t even look at the recipe until a few minutes ago because it seemed rather self explanatory. And other than the powdered sugar that didn’t make it into my peanut butter, I’d say it was. Also, I obviously didn’t completely cover mine with chocolate. But I did use colored sugar (and snowflake crackers) to make them festive!
