holiday baking

Last week we had our big cookie exchange. There were 23 people. There were a lot of cookies to taste. They were ALL wonderful. Leslie also wrote about it here.

I found my cookie recipe on Joy the Baker, and they were delicious (if I do say so myself). She actually wrote about them on Saturday. Red Velvet Black and White Cookies. I renamed them Black and White and Red all over. Dudley said, "these are the best cookies I've ever had." Thanks, Joy. He devoured the leftovers I brought home from the exchange. He also requested that we take some to his granny's this weekend. Hopefully I'll be up for making them again. Glazing over 100 cookies = tiring and time consuming.

Here are some photos documenting this process...

The staple ingredient...

The little boxes...

Here is proof of how many cookies I ate... :)

Hi Laura!

I also made Darby's cinnamon honey butter and it IS delicious. I'll be taking a jar to each of Dudley's aunts and his granny this weekend. Thanks to Darby, all the 4 oz jar supply in Memphis has been depleted. I managed to find mine at Superlo.

I'll leave you with a few of our holiday decorations around Fiesta.

O, Christmas tree, O Christmas tree. How lovely are your branches.

(I spy Gibson. Do you?)

Merry Christmas! Now I need to get some shopping done.
