Are you keeping up with the 12 Days of Cookies? Have you made any of them?? I would *love* to hear if you have. Sometimes I wonder if I am the only crazy person who is absolutely infatuated with cookie creations.
Day 7: Murstees (or Malted Toffee Oatmeal Cookies)
Today has been busy! I made 5 different flavors of hard candy: Peppermint, Cinnamon, Orange, Wintergreen and Spearmint. I will be sweeping up shards of sugar until Easter. There is no mess-free way of breaking the candy into pieces.
I also made a huge batch of dough that is chilling in my refrigerator, just waiting for me. I adapted a few recipes and created my own Gingersnap recipe. I wanted something super spicy, and I succeeded in super spicy. You can't go wrong with cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, cloves and cardamom. Yum.
Maddux has dreams of being a pro t-baller. We are working on the whole keep your eye on the ball thing.
Breuklyn can spell. And write. And read. And draw huge candy canes. I love how the whole world is just opening up to her. She is excited that she is now in on the whole grown-up secret of letters and numbers actually meaning something. Sweet, sweet girl.
I hope that everyone had a great weekend, we certainly did!
