Christmas Eve baking


I started with some cookies that August mom Mimi shared a couple of years ago that we all love – Lace Cookies (I’ll pose recipes Friday, I promise!)

Delicate and..well..lacy!! Basically oatmeal and brown sugar. OH yeah.

Then I moved on to some sugar cookies courtesy of The Food Groove:

I made a basic vanilla sugar and then the chocolate version I linked to.  Both are so so yummy.

The current version of the mantle is up above. The tree has just enough packages – meaning it is not overflowing for once. Though, it will once the larger items requested are put out!

The house has been cleaned, groceries are here for the meal tomorrow. Yep, ’twas the night before Christmas right here in my house 🙂

Merry Christmas to all my sweet friends who drop in here.

  1. This reminds me of a few times BK (before kids) when I did a lot of baking for the holidays. Haven’t done it in 25 years. Now the most I do is one batch of cookies!
