Baking for the holidays

Not much knitting going on, but I did get some sweet things baked. It's sort of silly, since Stephen and I are not really supposed to eat the stuff, but poor wee Arthur has been away from Mom's baking for months and Elaine has to have something in her lunch since she has to go to school till the 23rd... 

Chocolate thumbprint cookies with sprinkles and kisses

The kids always enjoyed making the pink and green cookies. You make dough, put green sugar in half and pink in the other half, make balls, squish them together, roll them in even more sugar and then flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass.

They use only egg yolks, so of course one has to make meringues with the whites.

We are not into piping bags around here 
Yum yum.


  1. I'm not supposed to eat the icecream either, but you know, the sun was shining, the icecream was there.....Merry Christmas to you all way up there
