Someone was happy that I changed my mind:
I made double chocolate merlot cookies using this recipe. Yes, they are as good as they sound.
I also made soft, chewy oatmeal cookies.
1 cup margarine, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
2 cups regular rolled oats
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all the ingredients. Roll into small balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press with a fork slightly. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes.
Finally I made a holiday staple, shortbread. These are the softest, most buttery, melt-in-your mouth shortbread around. I make them every year.
3 cups flour
3/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup icing sugar
1 lb salted butter
Whip the butter very well. Add the rest a bit at a time. Whip very well. Roll into balls and press slightly. Bake at 325 F for 20 minutes.
All the cookies turned out perfectly. Homemade cookies are definitely my favourite dessert.
I also made a double batch of caramel corn:
Christopher woke up on Saturday morning and saw it cooling, and thought an elf had made him breakfast. I tried to explain that caramel corn is not breakfast ... but I was too late.
Have you done any baking this holiday season?
