It's begining to look a lot like Christmas

We woke up to 14 inches of snow today. It is so beautiful and just put me in the mood to bake. My family was thrilled to say the least.

I have this great recipe for sugar cookies that you don't have to refrigerate. Makes the process much easier and more enjoyable too.

We called these cookies Moth Balls but my kids have never seen a moth ball so they didn't know what I was talking about. These are my favorite cookies at Christmas. They are also know as Russian Tea Cakes.

Peanut Blossoms are always yummy! I decide to make them in my flexible pan and insert the chocolate kiss upside down. You can use peanut butter cups too I suppose but I only had chocolate kisses. I am wondering why I made all my favorites when I am trying to loose weight. YIKES!

The entire time I was baking my grandson wanted to be in my arms and watch everything I did. He loves to watch me cook but being in his high chair next to me is not good enough. It is very hard to hold him and bake but I managed it most of the time. I wouldn't be surprised if this curiosity of his develops into more interest later. I am so hoping he has a creative side to him since none of my kids do. I always wanted a kid to color with and do art projects with. He definitely has a musical interest but he is only 14 months so you never know. Well, I feel like I accomplished something today.

Those look yummy, but it would be hard to eat something called a moth ball!

Ooh, they look so yummy. Recipes please! Maybe he is going to be a chef one day. As parents we learn to do a lot of things one handed don't we! Merry Christmas.
