So now the big question is what to make for the First Annual Festivus Cookie Exchange. So I thought I'd go over my list of Christmas favourites and maybe give ou some holiday baking inspiration too.
Peanut Butter Fudge - who knew making fudge could be so easy. On the flip side, this is dangerous information to have.
Spritz Cookies - delicious and nostalagic. They were always an important part of my Grandma's holiday baking. On the flipside, I have yet to master the technique. I got extremely annoyed with the whole process the last time I made them.
Chocolate Chip Cookies - hands down the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. On the flipside, I make them all the time.
Lemon Cheese Squares or Skor Bars - both yummy. On the flip side, how does one decide what a dozen Skor bars are?
Butterscotch Confetti Squares - oh these are so good. A childhood favourite that my other Grandma made. On the flipside, I might have a hard time giving them away.
Caramel Squares - I had these at an Anniversary open house I was at. I think I may have eaten most of them. Then I came home and scoured the internet for the recipe. On the flipside, I have a hard time getting my caramel as thick as it should be. So they taste delicioius, but aren't as pretty as they should be.
Ginger Snaps - Abby's favourite. On the flipside, they aren't the flashiest cookie. Will they be impressive enough for The FAFCE?
Or should I branch out and try something different? What do you recommend?
What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?
What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. *All front page links will be deleted!* Don't make me be a jerk. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.
So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html
I'll let you in on a little secret, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday
