Sugar + Butter + Eggs = Oh My!


The past few days I've been in full Christmas baking mode. I don't bake as much as I did years ago. Back then I had a ton of paid vacation time and I relaxed and baked and organized and shopped and cleaned and wrapped and ate and relaxed some more. It was really nice.

Silly me. I quit my job and went to law school. Oh well. I'm glad I took the time then and enjoyed it. Now it's all about shopping and baking and everything else in between working my hours. I'm about to go to work within a couple of hours and will be doing a very long day. But I wanted to do what will probably be my last post before Christmas.

Does it look like this cookie is smiling or am I just tired? I think this cookie likes me!

I made three kinds of cookies. Ribbon cookies, Butter Cookies, and Ruth's Peppermint Pinwheels, which I had some fun eating and photographing. I gave most of these, the ribbon cookies, and a loaf of chocolate bread to my brother and his housemates.



My parents want the other chocolate bread and I'm going to bake the butter cookies and bring them to my parents house too. Gingerbread will be made tomorrow that will be for dinner at my Aunt D's house on Christmas day.


Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings!
