Christmas Part VI: A few more recipes and a summary

It's time to wrap up this Christmas business.  The cookies have been destroyed and what little leftovers we did have are wrapped in tin foil and placed gingerly in the dessert archive.

For those of you who don't know what the "dessert archive" is, it's what my family calls my deep freezer.  I'm not making this up.   At any given moment, I could defrost enough food to host a 50 person bridal shower with a rockin' dessert buffet.  Waste not, want not.

So here's a little recap of everything sweet that I baked for the holiday, complete with a few recipes and pictures that I haven't already posted.

- Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake
- Bread Pudding that I forgot to take pictures of because I was a little bit tipsy
- Chocolate Coffee Pots de Creme Pie times dos

Cookies and Candy 
- Sugar Cookies and Butter Cream Frosting
Pecan Pie Bars
Inside Out Pumpkin Bars
Russian Tea Cakes
     - Maple Walnut
     - Chocolate
     - Chocolate Walnut
     - Peanut Butter

     - Cake Batter

     - Replace Oreo's with Nutter Butters and replace the 8 ounces of cream cheese with 10 ounces of peanut butter for Nutter Butter Truffles
