Cake I made while with Mr Husband's family,
for my birthday, Mr. Husband's name's day and a niece's birthday!
A lot of wrapping and stamping was done in the quiet days of
New Year's Eve and New Year's Day!
Christmas is this Thursday for us!!!
I baked cookies with butter, eggs,
chocolate covered dried cherries + chocolate chips!
Recipe here (in cookbook picture, made with eggs, butter).
I also made sugar cookies,
which I still think of as butter cookies!
I baked two pans of apricot bars,
note to self: next time do one batch of the filling at a time,
as it overflowed your small food processor and
clean up took a while!!!
At some point I hope to put up the steps and recipe for this!
The cookbook I used for the apricot bars said they are quite sweet,
so cut them in small squares; I did and they are so delicate, soft and wonderful looking.
I wrapped them up, 6 to 8 pieces in two layers with wax paper,
taped it shut and wrote that they are homemade apricot bars,
and put them in the Christmas tree cello bags that I have.
Next year I hope to make for Christmas the orange scented Christmas cookies.
I ran out of time and energy for them this year!
Earlier I had made turtle bars,
and lemon bars, and I made up two cute Christmas containers full!
