Christmas Cookies (and candy)




Yesterday, in a manic frenzy of holiday spirits, The Bride decided to make Christmas Cookies (and candy). After printing off a bunch of recipes and a quick trip to the grocery store to get all the ingredients, she began to cook. This is what she made, front to back and left to right:
Dark Chocolate Bark with ginger, raisins and nuts
Chrystallized orange and lemon peel
Chocolate-covered pretzels
White Chocolate Bark with crushed candy canes
Chocolate-Cherry Mice
Snickerdoodles
Russian Tea Cakes
Magic Cookie Bars
Apricot Coconut balls
Fudge
Lebkuchen

She isn't done. She's working on Rum Balls and Date Balls, too. She has already given away one tray and has plans for giving away a few more. That's the plan - to give them all away before she or the COG eats them.

On hearing about this cooking spree, a friend commented, 'there's A-type retirement and B-type retirement. You have just demonstrated A-type.'

I'm with your friend -- A-Type Retirement. I've been doing one recipe a day, for a week, and I'm still behind you. Waay behind you. And yours is a much more festive and well-rounded collection than mine.

They look totally scrumptious, by the way.

And then, after reading this blog, I checked out Cute Overload, and here's a Type-B retirement:
