Every year, my sisters get together and bake up a Christmas storm of fancy and pretty cookies. This year Sean was a participant and we were able to contribute to this cookie fest.
My mom made the fudge blob. She is Queen of Fudge.
Ash made Gingerdoodles, a combo of ginger snaps and snicker doodles--Christmas dream come true!
She also made some florentines, this super thin lace cookie with chocolate drizzled on top.
Stephanie made raspberry macaroons. So tiny and adorable.
Sean and I made candy cane cookies and cookie dough truffle balls. The truffle balls required the candy melts which are gross x 1,000 but so fun to decorate. The candy cane dough was so melty soft that only Sean and his wizard tricks could work it into a twist.
I would have liked to get pictures of all of us baking and working and decorating, wearing various aprons of various sizes. But I didn't. As usual though, Ash got a pic of the final plate. First Sean and then I a few minutes later, came in, saw what she was doing, and were like, uhhh that's not the right way to wrap a present. Also, really? Wrapping a plate of cookies? Won't that be just a little bit of a disaster? But no. It was for the pic. We all had a good laugh and then oo'ed and ahh'ed.
Here it is!
