First holiday Batch
Peanut Butter Blossoms
A Classic Holiday Cookie around here
My favorite part?
I race to see if I can unwrap the kisses
before the cookies come out.
Silly I know, but it's part of the tradition for me.
Tomorrow I make the dough for my
Mexican Chocolate Hearts
which I'll bake Friday.
Friday I'll make the dough for
Pepparkakor ( a gingerbread type)
which I'll bake Saturday.
Tonight I have another bar cookie to make.
The name escapes me.
(Snickerdoodle Bars - came to me 12 hours later)
I used to make 8-12 varieties for many years
and drive myself crazy with
multiple cookie exchanges etc.
Now I make the 4 types my family enjoys
and we gobble them all up.
Well, maybe a few go to friends here and there.
Thursday is Darling Daughter's B-Day,
so no baking.
Remember that young girl I dropped
off at NYU a few years back?
Thursday she is 23
Graduated, Working, In Love,
Living in NYC
Turns out I will have a house full of
young folks here after Christmas as well as before.
Seems Hannah and her beau have several
friends coming in for New Years and I am
already out of bedrooms.
Time for the blow up in the living room.
A loud and busy full house...
Time for soups and chili and casseroles..
I'll go easy on myself and buy the breads...
Lord knows we'll have enough cookies
and how happy this mama will be.
May you be as blessed this Holiday Season
bet you can see my grin from
wherever you are
