Cookies, Cookies, and more cookies

14 Jan

I think I have mentioned that my sister and my mom bake. Well, during the holidays they went crazy. They were full on baking crazies.

They made the traditional Aunt Nonie cake, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter kisses cookies, and tried new varieties of cookies. My sis brought the rugelach back, and made apple pie from scratch for only the second time. I was so stuffed after Christmas, I literally could not write this post until now.

Anyway, here’s a look at our Christmas.

How we all felt after eating!

And there was more! I forgot to mention the truffles that my sister made (I helped decorate!) and don’t have a picture of the cake!

Oh, and the cookies I promised to make were not very good. Oops!

    Dad liked your cookies. He told me he wants you to make them again.

    Those cookies look soooo good. Sigh.

    Mmmmm. They look lovely.

    Did you end up using the rum extract in your brown sugar cookies? That could have contributed to the grossness – like, I always try to use real rum in my baking (not that I have in awhile). But cookies are hard – I still have problems with them spreading and stuff.

    If you ever want come over for a baking lesson, let me know! I’ve been told I’m a low-key teacher.

      You should teach a bloggers baking class! That would be so fun!

        I’ll add it to my list of “good ideas to think about!”
