Holiday Baking, Day Two

December 24, 2009

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:

Chocolate Chip Shortbreads

Russian Tea Cakes

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

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!

    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!
