Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning

On the Eve of Christmas Harleigh and I started a new tradition. In the past I've always been the holiday baker. But this year dear girlie asked if we could make cookies together. She chose Iced Molly's (a recipe from my co-worker and dear friend Molly) and ritz/pb/chocolate cookies. I usually don't tackle rolled and cut cookies, but Harleigh was all over it, having been to a friend's house the night before for a sugar-cookie-making get-together hosted by friend's mom. The tips she picked up yielded us some of the prettiest cookies to come out of Chateau Gahan. And I got to spend some time with one of my favorite people in the whole wide world!

Here are the Iced Molly's. Harleigh chose blue for the glaze and I think it's the loveliest shade of blue. And they taste divine!!!!

We also made these yummy cookies. You take two Ritz crackers, spread peanut butter between them, then dip them into chocolate. I usually do a batch of milk chocolate and one of dark. Let them cool on wax paper, then refrigerate. Easy peasy.
Tubs of goodies ready to be delivered to neighbors!
Christmas morning and Giddy finds a gift from Santa!

Merry Christmas to all!!!!!

Cookies are so pretty! I always like making them, but for some reason, the ones that have to be decorated, I just lose steam, and they most likely stay naked.

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas with your darling daughter.

I love the sugar cookie snowflakes. They are beautiful! I will be glad to have my kitchen back in order. I baked my usual cranberry coffee cakes and kept it simple since we are in such disarray. I know you two had a blast! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Jackie
