Why did we have pizza from Petrillo’s tonight…
Yep I baked Christmas cookies from 7AM until 5PM.
What kind did I make? Well let’s review.
Striped Cookies. I have made this recipe for years. I found it in a holiday issue of Martha Stewart Magazine. It had to be back in the mid 1990’s.
Triple Orange Pecan Biscotti. I made these for the first time this year. I wanted to make something that wasn’t chocolate and I had all the ingredients for the recipe in the house. Well except the Grand Manier. I substituted Tuaca.
Snowballs, my mom’s recipe. The first Christmas cookie I bake every year.
Whiskey Balls, my mom’s recipe. Today when I ran downstairs to get the whiskey I remembered the year my mom and Aunt Marie were making a large batch of Black Russians for the party after my sister’s wedding. The two of them got pretty tipsy. Ah memories.
Back to the cookies. Coconut Shortbread. Fairly new recipe, to which I added chocolate shots. Coconut and Chocolate should always be served together.
Crackle Top Cookies, my mom’s recipe.
Jelly Bellys, my mom’s recipe.
Cinnamon Sticks. I found this in a magazine years ago and it is one of every one’s favorite.
Gingerbread Straws. Found this online this year. Wow I love these. In addition to the straws I decided to do cut out with some of the dough. Gingerbread men… heck no…
