I know this may come across as a bit of a shocker but I have been distracted from my blog this weekend, gasp I know how could that happen and better yet did anyone even notice. ( I sure hope so) I do not know where the time has gone but all of a sudden the open house is a week away and I had two parties this weekend and good lord you cannot go to a party without cookies right…. wine and cookies those are my hostess gifts. I promise invite me over and I will bring homemade goodness and wine, so I am waiting…..So Saturday was filled with cookies and I promise recipes and tutorials will follow but I wanted to share the start of my baking with you. ( Remainder will be tomorrow as we yep have another day off).
I was brought up in a family where Christmas baking as a tradition and I continue with some of my childhood favourites, the I add in Kent’s childhood favourites, a few carry overs from his ex so the boys have a selection and every year I add one or two newbies just because I like to try new things.. The grand total is normally between 14-18 different types of cookies and squares, yea I know like everything else I d this to excess as well, look around my house does this surprise you that I would bake that much…
Saturday was filled with Raspberry Thumbprints, Chocolate Chip Shortbreads, Caramel Creme Sandwiches, Scotch Cakes frosted, Oreo truffles, Peanut Butter Balls, One bite Gingerbread caramel cookies that I found on a blog ( still need to make the white chocolate mousse to go on top) plus I made the swedish strips earlier this week. ( so seven down and about 8 or 9 more tomorrow)
Does anyone else bake to excess??? Or if you don’t do you want to come over for a visit and sample some delicious baking???
