Merry Christmas! Tomorrow we'll be having Christmas
dinner with my husband's family and I'm bringing dessert. I'm going with
a few different things. First is a Triple Berry Crisp. My husband's
family loves berry desserts so I think this will be great. My husband
really wants me to do Marionberries but I'll see what I can find. Next
I'm doing Peanut Butter Cookies. I love this recipe because my nephew
who is Gluten Free and Dairy Free can have these. The last one is an
Apple Cake. I haven't made this one before but everyone who has raves
about it. I thought it would round things out nicely.
