I'm A Little Late - But Here Are The Cookies!

I promised I'd show you pictures of my baking exploits, so here they are. There were two sessions: one with a friend and one with Sweetie Mom:

My friend, Cathy, and I made Linzer Tarts and Peanut Butter Blossoms one Saturday afternoon. We tried doing two different sizes of the tarts, but decided we liked the small ones best.

Lots and lots of Peanut Butter Blossoms.

I made the dough at home to save time. 

Cathy found special cookie cutters for the Linzer Tarts. They had several designs for the center. My favorite is the heart.

Friday, 12/22/17, I made a bunch of butter cookies shaped like Christmas Trees, Stars, Bells, and Angels. The round and twisted cookies are Anginettes, a yummy Italian cookie.

The baking was a lot of work but so much fun.

Writers and Readers:  Do you bake Christmas cookies/cakes? Please share in the comments. If you can, I'd love to see a picture.

Oh wow, they look so yummie Susan, what a work! I do not have an oven, believe it or not. So I cannot show you any work of my hands :)

Very nice! They look delicious. May have to get some of your recipes. :)

Hi Marja - It was so much fun. I hadn't baked in a long time.

Hi Karen - There's something satisfying about putting them in a tin and seeing the variety. It's similar to looking at a Christmas tree after it's been decorated. :)
