I have been baking my head off this week -
and thought I'd share what I am giving friends,
neighbors and family.
I *always* make decorated sugar cookies and Russian Snow Balls.
Those are my two standard staple cookies for sure.
I love love love the smell of ginger cookies baking.
One of these days I intend on mastering the art of decorating with royal icing.
Practice, practice, practice, right?
I made a bajillion each of : decorated cut-out cookies,
snow balls, chocolate peanut crunch balls,
amd Oreo snowmen truffles.
Some of these were quite labor intensive to make,
but I had lots of fun doing so.
But it sure helps me get into the spirit of the season.
All of our pretty snow is gone now.
We won't be having a white Christmas after all. :-(
I think our last snow storm just came in too early!
Here is my post on the last snowfall if you missed here.
Here is where I found the recipe for those cute snowmen truffles.
And they're perfect alone as a tiny token to give someone.
It is especially well-received when in its own wee gift box
tied up with string.
If you missed my last post: I shared the cute pics
of my first grand daughter sitting on Santa's lap here.
