I've been missing for a week because of this bread.
I'm pretty sure that's why.
I've been determined to make a cherry chip loaf because of this silly movie I've been watching countless times.....still. "The 12 dates of Christmas".
I did find this recipe along the way. It's not as sweet as the other bread I've been trying to perfect but it's a good holiday gift giving bread :)
If I was being honest, I'm so sick of sweets right now. Taste testing is overrated.
I'm sure I'll change my mind tomorrow....but I'm pretty sure my pants won't fit.
Dish washing galore......
I also made these French Breakfast Puffs to take to work.
A little going away present for one of the gals........I think they are pretty darn cute :)
Always a huge hit.
Cherry Chip Pecan Bread

In large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar. Cream until well combined. Gradually add eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture. Mix until combined.
