Baking Bonanza!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009
This is the first year in many that I've had the opportunity to do a ton of holiday baking. I love holiday sweets. I'm good for gaining about 7 lbs. between Halloween and Christmas. It's all good!

I've been fortunate to have two very willing helpers. Mommy's Little Baker!

We've made a variety of cookies this year. Each year I like to try one new recipe. This year that one was The Forgotten, a meringue-type cookie with chocolate chips that is left in the oven overnight to bake. The oven is preheated and turned off once the cookies are placed inside. Super, super easy and yummy! Find the recipe here.The chocolate crinkle...made using a boxed cake mix...another super easy, super yummy cookie! Find the recipe here.
Champagne cookies....a light, buttery, and oh so delicious cookie. My grandfather made a mean champagne cookie. Mine pale in comparison, but Emma loves them, and that's all that matters.

I'll post the recipe for the champagne cookies next week. I always make them around Christmas, but it's a good that can be enjoyed all year round.

We also made chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, and sand tarts. We have the dough made for sugar cookie cut-outs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get to them tomorrow. :)
