So, I had somewhat of a holiday bake-fest in December…bake-fest, sweet-fest, over indulgence-fest, whatever you want to call it. It’s over now, that’s all I can say. Back to reality…for now at least. I did make a lot of sweets over the holidays for gifts for some friends of our own as well as other friends’ gifts to others. This “gift” was a bit selfish…but I did share, because I would be in a sugar coma right now if I wouldn’t have shared. These are courtesy of the Pioneer Woman. Her cinnamon rolls, which make gobs and gobs of gooey cinnamon rolls. I got about 44 rolls to be exact. Cinnamon rolls are probably in my top 5 things to eat in the world. I just love a good one. This roll is a lot like the ones I usually make, but her icing is different. It has maple and coffee in it. Yes, that’s what I said. Maple and coffee. Delish. I hope everyone devoured these like I did. Hello heaven.
I also made some cookies for a friend to give as teacher gifts. These are cranberry white chocolate cookies. I love these two flavors together. The tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the white chocolate is really a match made on Match.com. I prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate when it comes to chocolates, but these two are meant to be in a cookie together.
One more thing. We have an annual cookie exchange on my street every year. This is such a fun time for everyone. And, it’s competitive! We have awards for best presentation and best taste. I made Christmas Kitchen Sink Cookies and presented them on the newest member of my cupcake stand family along with my cupcake ornaments. Yes, obsessed with cupcakes. Sure. Why not.
Before I start baking again, I better quit talking about these sweets. I’m off to eat a hard boiled egg and continue my day as a boring eater. Talk to you soon!
