Christmas baking extravaganza

Thank you, Pinterest (and Google) for some delicious holiday sweets…

“Coal” – http://sweetpeaskitchen.com/2011/06/15/grand-cayman-no-bake-cookies-and-cream-bars/

Sugar cookies (with sprinkles or royal icing) – http://allrecipes.com/recipe/the-best-rolled-sugar-cookies/

Royal icing – http://allrecipes.com/recipe/royal-icing-i/detail.aspx

And the best thing I’ve ever baked to date?

Cranberry shortbread streusel bars – http://www.evilchefmom.com/2009/11/cranberry-streusel-shortbread-bars.html

That cranberry streusel? Right up my alley. It’s the perfect balance of tart and sweet and crunchy and YUM.

I am now properly exhausted and am going to knit and watch an episode of My So Called Life on Netflix and then sleeeeeeep.

Photo evidence of tonight’s shenanigans…

In spite of a (sprinkle-loving) toddler

Why yes, that’s an Oreo-butter-marshmallow beard she’s sporting.

  1. I love that photo of Lily with the out-of-focus Christmas lights in the background. It’s so Christmas-y and beautiful.
