Happy 12-12-12! It only happens once a lifetime”. What will you be doing to celebrate? I will be eating of these sweet treats I made the past weekend.
Last Saturday was a “toasty” day over at my house. There was no need for heater. The oven was warm the entire day. The house was filled with laughter of good friends. Hands were roasting from rolling and pipping cookies.
Holiday baking was never a tradition when I grew up because my mom doesn’t bake. This year, I am beginning this holiday festive custom in our household.
I invited a few girlfriends over for some holiday baking. We pumped out batches and batches of sweet treats. But somehow not much were left by the end of the day (sampling was a must I believe). Well, still enough to last us till Christmas Day.
Since I am new to this, I started with some simple ones and those that we like to have around the cookie jars.
The remaining pecans, which I bought for Apple Pomegranate Fall Salad, added great texture to the butter ball cookies. W loves peppermint candy canes around this time of the year. He said it doesn’t feel like Christmas if there is no chocolate and peppermint. So, here they are.
