The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past

Happy, happy holidays!

Since I noticed other bloggers and online magazines have been posting photos of my Christmas treats, which I have randomly found, I thought I better post them myself! I haven’t started baking in earnest yet so I’m going to visit The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past!

Probably the most fun and interactive cookies I’ve made were the Shake-able Snow Globes Cookies.

Naughty n’ Nice Gingerbread Men

Hello! This post might be a fine how-do-you-do after a five month blogging break but I realized something – I’ve never gave these spicy guys their own post page last year and like a good mother who loves all her baked children equally, I just had to. Thank you for indulging me. And of course, properly dressed for dinner. Carry On and Happy Holidays!

Happy 2016 Update

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Mine was very nice – boys home, family for dinner, all healthy, and a new MacBook Pro which I’m finding difficult to transition to from two decades of using a PC.  I’m selling more images through Getty Images and wanted some better resolution than what I was working on. I don’t even know the name of the screen I had on my old laptop but the screen looks different at every… [Read More]

Spritz Christmas Cookies – Dipped and Delish!

When I was a little girl, about eye level with the table, I remember my mom making spritz cookies for Christmas. They seemed like so much effort for such a small cookie – filling up the copper colored aluminum tube, turning the nob that screwed the plunger down to push the dough through the tube and shaped discs.  Problem was you never knew how much dough was coming out – were you turning the knob too much or too little? … [Read More]

Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year Decorated Almond Cookies

Growing up, I was always aware of the Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year, as it’s becoming more commonly called it seems.  Both my brother and I were born in the heart of Chinatown in downtown Los Angeles and my mother would recollect that when my brother was born fireworks were going off.  Since his birthday is on Valentine’s Day there’s a good chance that this coincided with the Chinese New Year.  No fireworks for me when I arrived… [Read More]

Peppermint Candy Decorated Cookies for a Holiday Hostess Gift

Have you ever seen a cup that calls to you making you wonder, “What can I put in it besides the obvious?” or “What excuse can I come up with to justify buying an entire spool of baker’s twine with a sparkly red tinsel thread happily running through it?” or “To whom can I give a gift so I can play with the pretty letterpress gift tag that I had to buy so I could run my fingers over the… [Read More]

Pink Christmas Tree Cookies with Fondant Pennants

Happy December! I can’t believe the countdown has begun!  What have you got planned this holiday season? This year we’ve been invited to a few parties where, for some reason, I’ve been asked to bring cookies.  😉  I wanted to design a cookie that said fun + party with more of a generic feeling in the holiday affiliation area but still said “happy holidays”. Did you know I’m crazy for pennants?  What says fun + party more than pennants?  I… [Read More]
