Hello Hello! Things have not slowed down one bit since I last checked in but I did manage to do a bit of holiday baking this weekend. I made the classic Peanut Butter Blossoms first. These are Mr. J's favorite cookies this time of year.
It was a family affair as Miss O helped unwrap the chocolates. She also did a very good job of taking the unwrapped chocolate from the finished container. She just didn't want to give up the chocolate. I cannot say I blame her but it got to the point I wasn't sure we would have enough to finish the cookies.
I hope to do a bit more baking before Christmas but my list far exceeds the amount of sweets we will be able to consume.
