A little Holiday Baking going on around here. Some take the privileges of the Baker very seriously.
On my list of goodies to be made this year:
Sugar Cookies (maybe even with royal icing and serious decorating? we'll see)
Ginger Snaps, of course
Peanut Blossoms, see above... and old standby
Mexican Wedding Cakes, my personal favorite
Tea Ring, just like my Grandma always does it
Peppermint Mochas (times 80... for the staff at school... yikes! but fun)
White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels... for gifts
I think that and maybe lettuce and endamame should do it for our diet of the next couple weeks.
How about you? Are there special things you always make, or are trying new this year?
So far, the making for me has not been too stressful (wait until I get to the Peppermint Mochas) and I am enjoying the pleasure and heightened sense of "something wonderful is happening" that it so easily brings.
I hope you enjoy your times of special making as well!
