Today kicked-off the start of the holiday baking. I made my world famous Peanut Butter Fudge and a new cookie recipe.
I've been making the fudge recipe for more than 10 years and it turns out great every time. I follow the instructions exactly as written and it's always been super creamy and delicious.
The cookies (recipe found HERE) have wonderful flavor, but mine were flat as a pancake. I have no idea what I did wrong, but you can see mine don't look anything like the ones she has pictured on her website. I might need to replace my baking power. I know hubby will gobble them up though. He'll sit down in front of the TV this evening with a glass of milk and devour at least a dozen.
This afternoon, I put on some Christmas music and dear son and I made wreath bead ornaments. They now adorn our tree.
We've been getting lots of goodies in the mail. My door is filling up with beautiful Christmas cards and we received a festive goodie package from one of my aunts chock-full of holiday favorites.
Butter cookies, assorted mixed nuts, peanut brittle, candy canes, a beautiful card, and a sweet book for the little one.
Dear son and I ate most of the butter cookies yesterday while we watched White Christmas. They just don't make movies like that anymore.
I think Rosemary Clooney is absolutely stunning in this movie. I love the scene where she is singing at the Carousel Club in her black figure hugging gown and long white gloves; gorgeous!
Hope your Christmas week is full of activities that make you happy.
