Cookie #9 in "the 12 Cookies of Christmas"

We just got back from a nice afternoon in St. Louis.  Went to the mall and then up to St. Charles, a wonderful New Englandish looking village with tons of shops and restaurants.  Just what was needed to get in the Christmas spirit and finish up that last minute Christmas shopping.  Are you ready for Christmas??

Below is one of my older son's favorite cookies.  They are really called New Year's Eve cookies, but we call simply call them Nest cookies.  Enjoy!!

Nest Cookies

12 oz. bag chocolate chips
12 oz. bag butterscotch chips
7 oz. chow mein noodles
1 cup peanuts

Melt chips in the microwave until melted and smooth.  Mix in chow mein noodles and peanuts.  Spoon onto wax paper in bunches and allow to "set".  The kids just love these!!!

Until next time.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
