Last night was my annual cookie swap. I missed last year due to hubby having kidney stones while away on a business trip. I was pretty excited about the swap and just gal-pal time which there seems to never be enough of lately. As usual, I couldn’t figure out what cookie I wanted to make and went back and forth and back and forth because I wanted to do something different. Not always a good thing….
I started off with some chocolate meringue snow capped mountain cookies. Mine never received their snow but they lacked the *wow* factor I was seeking as you can see from the before and after pictures below.
On to recipe #2 – lemon bar flutes with a lemon drizzle. These seemed like a winner until the cookie press and I had a nasty fight and broke up. It was sad, but cookies are also due next week for the AWANA Christmas party so we may have to make up by then….maybe. I rolled out the remaining dough and cut flowers because I needed to think happy thoughts. What they lack in presentation, they more than make-up for in taste – these babies are yummy!!!!
Even after all of last night’s festivities, I awoke this morning still desiring something tasty and decided to make Gesine’s cream scones from her book. They were delicious, my mom even wanted the recipe.
And, because the Professor keeps talking about the tree, here is not the best pic of it.
Hope you are enjoying this Christmas season!!
