Happy New Years to all! Now, maybe it was pregnancy in general or the fact that PB (the nickname I have given this fetus = picky baby) has rejected most things I have tried to eat lately……but I NEEDED rolled sugar cookies this holiday. It was just an irrational craving I could not kick.
I baked a batch two weeks before Christmas and then promptly got an upper respiratory virus and didn’t get anything done for 15 days. I was disappointed the cookies were stale by the time I was ready to frost them. So on Christmas weekend I baked a fresh batch and nabbed some buttercream and decorations from my Aunt Barb. And boy howdy did I go to town!
Everyone else cleared out to go to Ferdinand and I had three hours of peace and frosted quietness. My decorating skills leave something to be desired but the cookies were scrumptious and JUST what I wanted. The cookies didn’t last long either!
What was your holiday craving this year?
Yummy! You look so happy with your pretty cookie! I haven’t had cravings, but my DW has been baking all the things so we have had delicious treats for a month now. Diet starts tomorrow, lol.
Gingerbread cookies. We used all the different cookie cutters (and then I received a few more for Christmas). Didn’t ice the first batch but used royal icing on the second – I need some practice at piping for next time.
I strangely had few cravings this year. The chocolate chip cookies, egg nog, and kitty kindness were necessities. My kitties tend to play rough & all through the house. I didn’t know if the baby gate would keep them out of the tree.
I have that same Yarn Harlot t-shirt!! Are you going to the KITH conference this year?
I am! I even got into one of the Franklin Habit classes
Which one? I’m taking the photography class.
The Saturday Shadow knitting course for me!
Nice! Maybe I’ll see you at the keynote, if you go. 🙂
I can’t make the keynote because of work 😔
Oh shoot. I’m sure we’ll run into each other one of these days at some knitting event!
Eggnog and Mince pies
I’ve never tried proper egg nog….I really should though!
Your cookies look delicious. I baked an insane amount of Peppernut Cookies. I had three Tupperware containers full of them
