Baking.......

I have baked two batches of spritz cookies so far and will do another two for sure.  Some will be mailed out in a couple days, the rest shared with many in my own area.


I made two batches of Chex mix yesterday.  I only had 5 of the Christmas print bags left from last year.  I didn't see them at the store this year but I'll go back and look again.
I spent and hour trying to clear off table tops in my main floor studio.  I still have a long way to go on it.  I got 4 mug rugs trimmed and binding cut.  

It is supposed to be near 0 on Sunday and might be the coldest day the Bears have played football in Chicago.  They are playing the Packers who are no strangers to cold weather either so both teams should be OK.  It is the people in the stands watching the game that will be suffering.

Never, ever could master Spritz cookies. Mine looked like splat cookies. I did bake some great gluten free sugar cookies yesterday, recipe from King Arthur flour. Also finished quilting a Princess quilt- hopefully can do the binding today and move it out. Next one on the frame today!

I LOVE eating cookies, but I admit I never got the hang of using the cookie press thing you need to make spritz. I'm more of a drop cookie or ball type cookie maker. Russian Teacakes have always been my favorite Christmas Cookie. Then, Rosettes. OK, kiefly. or maybe......
Merry Christmas

Spritz has always been my all-time favorite to make at Christmas ... it's also been my all-time favorite to EAT at Christmas. 8-)

Merry Christmas to you and all, from Western COLD Nebraska. Elaineadairpieces.blogspot.com

How do you package the cookies when you mail them?
