I meant to get a post up earlier today, but no such luck! I've been busy in the kitchen. Here's what I've made so far this week:
- 36 molasses cookies
- 38 cherry flips (there's a red maraschino or green glace cherry inside)
- 15 thumbprint cookies
- 46 mint almond truffles
- 40 pecan cookie dough truffles
I also have some spritz cookie dough in the fridge - it was supposed to go through my cookie press, but the poor (cheap) thing couldn't handle it. Two separate pieces snapped.... *sigh* So I'm just going to roll the dough out & use cookie cutters instead; I have lots of fun shapes, including some woodland friends ones I found at IKEA.
If you were wondering (mom) why there are so few thumbprints, it's because I forgot to thumbprint the second batch. They puffed right up. So I turned them into cookie crumbs (with pecans) & made truffles out of them. GREAT idea! I'll just make another batch of the thumbprints.
Since I'm rolling & using cookie cutters for the dough I already have, I'm also planning on doing the same with some sugar cookies & shortbreads today. Yum!
Best get to it!
