  2. WOW!
    Talk about major yumminess….I have to try them all! LOL!
    The Funfetti sandwich cookies look like they’ll be my first pick.
    Have a nice weekend!

  3. The cinnamon rolls and the PB Baklava are probably my OMG I have to have it’s…but then there’s so much Reese’s, chocolate, and other PB, and white choc – I have to have all that too 🙂

  4. Some great holiday ideas? More like some this-is-so-amazing-I-don’t-know-what-to-say ideas. If I had to pick one to try, it would be the baklava or the pecan pie fudge. Those look like some serious desserts!
