I always make up the Spritz Cookie dough the night before. Spritz Cookie dough can be a little finicky when it comes to temperature so I find it to be easiest to make it the night before and let it rest overnight.
The Cherry Nut Mudslides are a new recipe that I am going to be trying this year, along with Raspberry Coconut cookies. I will also make them the night before and I am sure that you will hear all about it!! My Baking Day will be December 21st, I can't wait to get started!! I am so excited that there are so many of you that have tried a few of the recipes. I want to see pictures!! Happy Baking!
Today is the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas for my kids.
The First Day of Christmas is bundling up in the car and going to look at Christmas lights. We will stop at Starbucks to get hot chocolate (or chocolate milk) and sing Christmas songs loudly (and probably badly, let's be honest) while we look at all of the beautiful Christmas lights in the surrounding neighborhoods. My iPod has been loaded with all of the necessary songs. As soon as the sun sets, we are ready to go!
