It's time for our holiday cookie exchange at work and I seriously thought about not joining in this year. It's my last week of work...I was laid off on November 1st and I'm still not happy about that, but the truth is I LOVE to bake! I try not to bake too often because I also love to EAT baked goods!
This year I made some snowflake sugar cookies with royal icing. I think I'm getting better at my cookie decorating! Thankfully, each batch I make seems to look better than the last! That sort of makes me want to bake all the time but I would be 300 lbs if I did! I can't resist cookies!...or any baked goods for that matter!
I also made some White-Chocolate Cherry Shortbread Cookies from Better Homes and Gardens. The recipe is here. These are really good and I think they would have been even better had I remembered to put in the almond extract!
