you don't know the half of it. there is not one spot it
seems in my study not covered with cookies and breads and
royal iced cookies hardening.
Pumpkin bread (mini bundt and muffins), gingerbread
muffins (from Traditional Irish Cooking), sugar cookies,
ginger cookies, Mexican wedding cookies, chocolate crinkle
cookies with Andes mints, jam thumbprint cookies (apricot
and red plum), oatmeal cookies with dates, golden raisins
and candied ginger, coconut macaroons.... can you tell i
bake for presents? ;)
this year, i cut out miniature 1 inch stars from the
ginger cookie dough, and put them in a baggie with some
edible gold dust and gently shook it. beautiful!!!!!!
and not a lot of waste on the baggie. so pretty, i took
the hearts, and put them in too... and even less waste on
the baggie. the golden brown color of the cookie base
with the gold is fantastic.
it's a keeper.
also cooking a gi-normous pot of green chili stew for
WAR!!!!! practice the sunday after midwinter.
back to the grind..... where's that fairy dust for the
