Girls Night Christmas Party 2010
Last night I held my annual girls night Christmas party and it was just as fun as the past two years. We had lots of delicious food and wonderful company, games and presents a plenty. I have everyone bring a $20 gift that they would enjoy receiving and then we play the white elephant gift exchange game and everyone goes home with something fun. The biggest question of the night was will there be another party next year with the new addition to our family and of course the answer is YES! just because i’m going to be a mom doesn’t mean i’m giving up being a party hostess, its one of my favorite things to do. 🙂 Here are some pictures from the party and the requested recipes.
I made two types of truffles- Peanut Butter & Oreo
1 ½ tablespoons flour
2 sheets puff pastry
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
I cup whole milk
salt & pepper
6 oz thinly sliced deli ham
1 cup grated gruyere or fontina
½ cup grated swiss
1 large egg, lightly beaten
In a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add flour, cook, stirring constantly until golden, about1 minute. Whisking constantly add milk and simmer until thickened about 5 minutes. Season with salt & pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Pour sauce into a bowl and let cool for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400. On a floured work surface roll the puff pastry sheets out to be 10 x 13 inches. Place on a silicone mat or parchment paper.
On one of the puff pastry sheets spread sauce in a thick layer over entire surface, leaving a ¾ inch border. Layer ham on top of sauce and then the shredded cheese. Place the second puff pastry sheet on top and roll the edges of both the sheets of pastry together, toward the middle. Using a sharp knife cut vents across the top of the tart. Brush top and edges with egg.
Bake until browned and puffed, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

After cooking for two days and then this morning volunteering from 9 to noon at a Christmas store for those in need i think i might have over done it a little. I’ve been so exhausted all day, but hopefully i’ll be back to normal tomorrow since i have multiple etsy orders that need to be filled. Yay for the Holidays! 🙂
