will bake for snow
I've been searching high and low for some Christmas mojo. Not much luck so far. Head colds (did you know that two Boy Colds equal a Man Cold?), the kids' cram-all the-tests-into-the-last-two weeks-of-school-before-the-holidays stress and the messiest, most cluttered house on the entire planet have kept me from getting into the full swing of things.
And where's the snow, anyway? A few flakes would be really nice right about now - these grey, rainy days haven't been much fun. I keep thinking that if I bake enough cookies, throwing a pinch of powdered sugar over my shoulder once in a while, maybe, just maybe, it'll snow for Christmas. But who am I kidding? We rarely get more than a dusting at this time of year. I'm keeping my hopes up, though, and will continue with the baking. You see, I don't make cookies because I have to, I make them because I want to, especially at this time of year. And I've got a few new recipes up my sleeve.
Here, have a peanut butter and chocolate sandwich cookie. Great with a glass of milk and a good book.
They look innocent enough, but, whoah, can you say meal replacement? That's how sweet and rich they are. The boys adore them (peanut butter lover's gene successfully passed on!), Mr. M, definitely not a fan of the nutty spread, thinks they are 'interesting'. He is just being polite while he waits for the real Christmas cookies to appear.
