    Fudgie Scotch Ring that Paula Deen has here:http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/fudgie-scotch-ring-recipe/index.html
    I made it with my grandmother more than 40 years ago and have made it since. It was a Nestle's recipe. I don't bother to make it into a ring now (though it's pretty that way), just pour onto parchment paper-lined pan and cut into squares. It freezes well when wrapped tightly. Good without nuts too.

    We had a luncheon at work and one of the guys brought in a dish called Blackberry-Almond Bruschetta Appetizers. They were a hit and I now know what I am going to make to take to a New Year's Eve get together. The link to the recipe is: http://www.cdkitchen.com/recs/385/Blackberry-Almond-Bruschetta-A104852.shtml and if I typed it in wrong it is Recipe ID: 75725 on www.cdkitchen.com. Yummy!!!

    I bet the sugar free cheesecake will taste great, mrschizzy!

    Your cream cheese poundcake also sounds delicious, careless!

    I may be making that eggnog cheesecake this weekend. ;-)
