Well, Day Two was actually four days ago, but this is the first chance I’ve gotten to sit down and blog about it! I spent much of Sunday in the kitchen, finishing up my baking. Most of my cookies and candy were given as gifts – to coworkers, friends, and my aunt (who made a special trip to my house last night and was sent home with a dish full of goodies!). Here are some photos of what I made:
I was so busy packing up the tins for gift-giving that I neglected to take photos of the finished gifts – trust me when I say they were lovely! I saved a container-full for myself and Bob, though it’s likely that I’ll be the one to finish them off. As I write this, there are only two surviving Russian Teacakes, a couple pieces of toffee, and a handful of shortbreads. My stomach hurts.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Those macaroons look beyond delicious! I wish I could eat them.
Your aunt loved the cookies, fudge and toffee!! Your aunt loves you.
ha ha…Aunt Claire (if that’s your real name).
I believe that is my name, but I am adopted, so my real name could be something completely different.
Oh, please share the recipe for the vanilla ice cream with sprinkles fudge. That was stupendous!
