So yesterday I baked the first of my holiday cookies. I decided on Spritz and did them in an almond flavor. Some are plain, some colored red, and some green. A few have nonpareils, and a few some colored sugar, but most are plain.
Today’s goal is to get gingerbread cookies baked. I made the dough yesterday and set it to chill overnight. I figure that if I can get one thing made each night this week, I should be in good shape to platter up by the weekend. Which is good because we have a dinner party to attend on Sunday night and I’d really like to bring a robust and colorful platter of goodies with us. Here’s what I’m thinking:
- Gingerbread men and women, fully decorated
- Sugar cookies, all piped & flooded
- White chocolate peppermint bark
- Brownies (either tiny squares, or brownie bites in mini cupcake liners)
- Rice krispie treats
This should offer a decent variety for every palette, and not repeat the same old stuff that I do every year. That, and I needed some simple things on there because the gingerbread & sugar cookies take tons of time to complete.
