...and to put it simply, I'm stressed + excited. I have lots of cards to make and quite a few presents still to gather/wrap, hence the stressed part, but other than that, the hyper and secretive spirit of the season is contagious.
..Christmas cookies, anyone?
We have an age-old sugar cookie recipe (think great-grandma and beyond) that is brought out at every holiday and followed to the precise flour measurement.
The cookie dough, in my opinion, is even better than the actual cookies (who else is a sucker for the dough?)--though when freshly baked and slathered with cream cheese frosting + sugar sprinkles...
They have a hint of vanilla, and just a home-baked taste that is hard to beat.
What treats are annually baked in your home around this time of year?
And in case I don't find myself on-line until after the holidays (which most assuredly will be the case),
..from my corner of the world to your's.
