This is the weekend
we'll go & chop down our tree
& this is when all the fun begins!
We have only a dusting of snow
& are expecting more tomorrow.
Which means I will also be
in my nice warm kitchen baking!
Baking & boxing
Christmas cookies for everyone!
Now, let me ask you,
do you start from scratch
or do you start from the big tub
that you bake at 350
for 9 to 11 minutes?
Have you all seen
what some very talented
cookie makers are pulling
out of their ovens?
Kind of gave me a bit of anxiety
when I saw the level of artistry.
These are my favorite.
Old fashioned like my grandmother
used to make.
I like to actually see the cookie part
since I'm not an icing kind of girl.
It's how the cookie part tastes
that's most important, right?
This is a pretty departure
from the typical red & green.
I like that too!
And these golden angels are
pretty enough to hang on the tree!
When you bake for someone,
you're giving more than cookies.
Layers and layers of buttery goodness
wrapped in wax paper also says
"I love you."
More artistry using that
swirly swivel toothpick technique thingy.
I think these are actually
going to be ornaments...
These would win the prize
at the Porter's.
Gingerbread is our favorite!
Before I go preheat the oven,
I want to show all of you smart designers
the gorgeous creations by
Handmade, pure Belgian chocolates
adorned with edible inspiration
from vintage wallpaper patterns.
These handmade pretties
were produced in the kitchen
of ex-television set designer,
You can visit Rogue Confections

Baked with love of course!
