Fudge Puddles

Photo by Taste of Home
 I'm continuing my look-through of older December issues of Country Woman magazine.  So inspiring!  If you're not familiar with this magazine, look around on eBay and elsewhere and see if you can find yourself some back issues.  They are some of the most helpful December magazines in my collection, and also have few if any advertisements in their pages. 

This week I was looking through the Nov/Dec. 1992 issue.  Turns out it's the one from which I took my recipes for Whipped Shortbread Cookies and Eggnog Log Cookies.  Both of these recipes have become cherished family Christmas traditions for us.  I couldn't have said just how long I'd been making these recipes, but now I know it's been over 20 years!

In this same issue, which featured the winners of a Christmas cookie recipe contest, I found two more recipes I want to try.  One of them is these Fudge Puddles, which would be good any time of year at all.  I remember wanting to try this recipe at the time, but guess I never found the extra time to do so.  I know that Fudge Puddles have become a tradition in some families at Christmas, and I definitely want to try making these.  Now I can post the link here and know exactly where to find it!  I'm thinking of trying to do the peanut butter cookie part gluten-free, and will keep you posted. 


  1. cookies, cookies, cookies!yum!

  2. They do look yummy, don't they? I like the way they are packaged for the photo. Very festive!
