For many years, we went crazy with the cookie baking. We'd have "Cookie Day" one Sunday before Christmas and have at it. The kids were smaller then, heck Ronan hadn't even graced us with his presence. Then for a few years we didn't get around to it at all. But this year, we were back! We gave out boxes of them and from what I hear...were enjoyed by all.
Santa even enjoyed some cappuccino flats and swirled mint cookies.
Apricot Amaretto Chews...with a little drizzle.
This an A+ recipe from an old Boston Globe Magazine. It's called European Apple Cake and I've made it 100 times. It's wonderful. Don't you want a bite? Come on over.
The Lenox plates come out at Christmas. I try to stretch them out to the end of January, as it seems crazy to save such pretty plates for just one month a year.
Owner of too many decorating magazines to count, love outdoor spaces, my pergolas, my gardens. Photog for 20 years and see life literally through a lens...elevating my life through painting, classes, cake recipes and frosting, fondant and country music. If Jason Aldean needs a baker on tour, I'm gone.
