Christmas Baking -- and I Only Burned One Tray of Cookies!

I spent the last couple of days doing some Christmas baking.  Everything turned out pretty good!
 These are a white chocolate chip and oatmeal no-bake cookie. So easy!

 Peanut buttery-goodness!

 Okay, I've found another favorite that I'll make again! Yummmm!
 I cheated and used frozen bread dough for poppy seed,
 one pecan/walnut ring, and two dozen cinnamon rolls.
The nut rolls didn't turn out exactly as John remembers them, since I didn't have his family recipe to follow.  They're still good.  His sis, Susan, sent me the real recipe, so next time I'll have it. I see where I went wrong.  The recipe I followed was more of a pie dough, no yeast.

Just as a safety net (since I can't ever seem to find where I put things) I'm putting it at the end of this post.  Now I'll know where it is!
