Cookie Monster

Today is my day for recipes–but oh my, all I can think about is cookies–we still have loads, my neighbor jsut brought me more and I cannot face making more.

My next project is to make pignoli nut cookies–but not tomorrow. Probably will wait until Valentine’s day to make those.

Tomorrow is my birthday–no cake unless I make one–and I am leaning toward an almond cake this year with a new recipe our neighbor gave me and a special swedish pan–that my aunt gave me.

How can I make a cake with such a backlog of sweets still awaiting munching?

I’ve frozen cookies. I’ve given dozens away. But like the tree that is still not completely down, Christmas is cookies for me and I hate to see them all go.

But tomorrow IS ny birthday so we shall see–a cake may yet make its way “into the mix”, all puns intended.

Cookie Countdown

My plan for Christmas¬†cookies was interrupted by a long session with our computer expert–I am about to start on the almond crescents. But key tot he plan is not trying to do more in one day than is reasonable for you–better to space out the baking.

Although I made a few that keep well ahead, I waited until the week before–Monday night we made pizzelle–Joe and I.

Monday afternoon was ginger cookies and the dough for ginger cutouts.

Tuesday I made the ginger cut outs. Had a lot of other things to do outside of the house too.

Wednesday–date bars finished before the computer guy came. Now time for the almond crescents.

Tomorrow is pretzel caramel thumb prints.

Friday is for pignoli nut cookies

The list helps me remember what I need to make and to remind me of what I need to have on hand to bake them!
