Ahh, The Glorious Marriage of Fat and Flour

I’m talking about Christmas cookies (the ones above are Lemon Pecan Slices). So far I’ve used 8 sticks of butter, have baked 15 dozen cookies and have another double batch of gingerbread dough in the fridge ready to bake. And I still don’t have enough. More is better. Almost always. But definitely true of cookies.

(Note: The big boy helped me decorate and clearly he understands more is better.)

    Beautiful looking cookies! How about the recipe? 😉
    Can I ask how many people you are expecting to cook for?
    Have a lovely day.

    Hi Sweetrosie,

    Click on the title of the cookies and you’ll go to AllRecipes.com. I bake for friends, relatives, teacher gifts and others. And I like to make a variety. It adds up. Thanks for visiting!

    I blogged about “Gifts” including your gift of the cookies.
    I’d love to have that butterscotch cinnamon recipe.

    Which Big Boy helped you decorate – your husband or your son? By the way they are as good as they look! Your husband’s not a bad little wine maker either!! Cookies and wine – it doesn’t get any better than that!
