Christmas baking season has begun here!
I made a double batch of peanut butter cookies, and rolled the dough balls in mixed sugars (granulated, decor blue) before baking.
Obviously, I skipped the Hershey Kiss “blossom” with this batch. I will make another another double batch with Hershey Kisses.
My mother always made three kinds of cookies for Christmas – Tollhouse, Russian Tea Cakes, and Peanut Blossoms. These have a special place in my heart, if not my arteries! 😉 I copied the recipe into my recipe binder from the original insert that had come in a bag of Pillsbury’s Best Flour back in the 1960’s. I will have to ask her if she still has that piece of paper stashed in her cookbook.
Christopher Radko snowman ornament – I surf the internet for ornaments on sale Christmas day. Try Macy’s (Holiday Lane category) . (Have no fear, I am not abandoning my family or guests in the middle of the gatherings to go internet shopping…even after I have been up until 1:30 am wrapping gifts, I still seem to wake up at least an hour before any pre-agreed-upon Christmas morning wake up call.)
