Favorite Christmas Recipes

We have made these for year. These are a few of our favorite things:

Sausage Balls

1 pound ground pork sausage
2 cups biscuit baking mix
1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup water (opt if too dry)

  1. 1Allow cheese and sausage to reach room temperature.
  2. 2Place in mixing bowl with Bisquick and blend till smooth. (I've had great success using my hand-held electric mixer to incorporate ingredients). NOTE: Mixture will be quite dry.
  3. 3Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray well with vegetable oil spray.
  4. 4Press/roll mixture into 1 inch balls by hand. Place onto cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
  5. 5Bake in 400* oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or till golden brown.
  6. 6Drain on paper toweling.

    Orange Balls

    1 (12 oz.) pkg. vanilla wafers, crushed
    1 (6 oz.) can frozen orange juice, thawed
    1/2 c. butter
    1 (16 oz.) box powdered sugar
    1 c. chopped pecans
    7 oz. coconut (opt)

    Combine wafers, juice, butter and sugar; mix well. Blend in nuts. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar or coconut.
