The first year was at my house, pre-demo:
On Saturday we cranked the carols (after finding out all of our ipods had issues and we couldn't listen to them, we put the radio on a Christmas station), set out our ingredients and got to work! We had 5 recipes to tackle (and 4 batches of each recipe!):
1. Sweet Maries
2. Short Bread
3. Sugar Cookies
4. Ginger Sparkles
5. Coconut Chocolate Squares
Sugar Cookies (my fav!)
Coconut Chocolate Squares
14 hours later I was home and ready for bed! We started baking at 9:30am and went hard until 9:30pm! Then we had to wait until 11:30pm for the last batch of squares to cool before we could pack them up. It was a long, delicious and lovely day!
Although I didn't get around to any decorating (mainly because the living room is bursting with project materials that I'll share later this week), it feels so great to have one very yummy thing checked off my Christmas to-do list, phew!
Did you get any thing checked off your Christmas to-do list this weekend??
