Christmas Baking

So glad that Christmas is only once a year..... lol   Not used to doing this much baking!  We don't eat many sweets as a rule.  My husband has a slight allergy to nuts, there are very few Christmas recipes that don't call for nuts!   But since the kids are coming out and they don't do any baking (only get dessert when they are here), I thought I'd do some extra baking this year and give them each a container full to take back with them.

The other day I made Magic Cookie Bars and Tweeties. The Tweeties recipe was one that we got from an aunt many many years ago, close to 30 years ago! I have no idea where she got it, but it's really yummy :) Haven't made it in years and thought I would again. Here is the recipe:


1/2 c. margarine
2/3 c sugar
1 c. mile
1 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c chocolate chips
2 stiffly beaten egg whites.

Cream margarine and sugar slowly. Add flour, baking powder and salt alternately with the milk. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips and stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake at 350F for 25- 30 minutes; cool.

Middle layer:
2 egg yolks
1/3 c. margarine
1 1/2 c. icing sugar

Mix together and spread on cake.

1/2 c chocolate chips
2 tablespoons margarine

Spread over top.
Allow to set and cut into squares.

NOTE: My pan is a little bigger than a 9x13, so I used 3 egg yolks and a bit more margarine and icing sugar for the middle layer. And about 3/4 c. chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons of margarine for the top.

Hope everyone has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
