So needless to say blogging has been last on the list of things to get done. But I am hoping now that things have calmed down a bit it will be put back at the top.
I wanted to share pics of this years Christmas open house where I sell my baked goods. Just like anything worth doing, it is a lot of fun and a lot of work! And by the end of it all I never want to see another cookie again! But don't worry, I am already starting to think about next year!
My cookies on display, all packaged and pretty!
Cyns families secret almond roca candy- really If I give out the recipe she will never talk to me again!
Lemon Cream Cheese Bows. They were so delicious but oh so delicate!
Chocolate Peppermint Polka Dot Pigs! These were one of my favorite cookies this year. I packaged them in little boxes with polka dot tissue paper and polka dot ribbons.
Another one of my favorites! Old fashioned sugar cookie trucks with Christmas trees coming out the backs, all decorated for the season!
I made Chocolate Espresso Fudge (really good recipe) and packaged it in these delightful little boxes with poinsettias on top. The boxes were kits I picked up at Michael's from Martha Stewart.
Cranberry Shortbread Hearts make a sweet gift anytime of year.
Candy jars. I package festive candy in recycled jars and make them pretty using tags and ribbons. They make a great teachers gift.
Chocolate Peppermint Elf Pop Cookies. I use the same dough as the peppermint pigs and just put a stick on the back before I bake them!
Gingerbread Cottages. Iced and strung with ribbon. Makes a delicious treat or a delightful ornament to hang on the tree.
Gingerbread Snowflakes. Decorated with words of the season...Peace, joy, Love. Strung with ribbon they look beautiful hung in a window!
Whats better than a Jumbo Cookie?? Peanut butter and Double stuffed Chocolate chip!
Happy Baking Everyone! After all this cookie making I just might stick with cakes for a while!
