You Had Me At Cookie


It is the cookie swap time of year as we begin the Christmas countdown. This will be the second year that my daughter has been invited to a friend's Christmas cookie swap. We will be spending time together on Sunday cooking up a storm, as she will need to make four dozen cookies to bring to the swap.

Last year she chose a somewhat non-traditional type of cookie to make for the swap. Black and whites, which happen to be her favorite. We bedazzled them with silver dragees to make them look a bit more festive. As the baker grew weary it was Mommy to the rescue, to make the fondant frosting. With their beautiful gloss like finish, these cookies look like they are fabulous, and party ready. Or, was that the baker?  The taste was out of this world, and we were lucky to have some leftovers; or unlucky depending on how you look at it.

Pictured here is the baker in all her glory, and not too tired for a sample. Check back on Monday for this year's cookie extravaganza.

Until next time...L.
