One of our favorites to make is peanut brittle. It is so simple, we make it in the microwave, and it is so good! I made a batch this morning, then Emily also made a batch and put chocolate on it. That made it extra good! So now we are thinking of getting white chocolate too, to melt and squeeze on in a very elegant way! Of course, we Never eat any of this, no not us!
Rachel, who has discovered baking this year, was my side kick for sugar cookies. She is so sweet for Christmas she has asked for 4-5 cake mixes, because she likes to bake! I bought a set of Nativity Cookie Cutters this year! We are making sets of cookies for the neighbors. Some know Jesus, some do not. We figure a sugar cookie baby Jesus, a manger, Mary, Joseph and angel, along with a print out of the Christmas story, may be accepted at this time of year!
We use canned milk brushed on the cookies, to hold the pretty sugars.
Oh, yeah, there is a heart, a star, a donkey, a lamb and a shepherd as well. And a king....whew that is a lot of cookies. Good thing we can give these to the neighbors as well, because we NEVER eat any of these either!
