It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn't it?
Here's what Christmas means to me:
1. Getting to sing for 11 PM Christmas Eve service
(I know it's kind of geeky, but there you go . . . )
2. Baking cookies!
I actually do have a plan this year, and the decision-making process wasn't nearly as challenging as it was in years past. :) Here's the list:
Golden Vanilla Bean Caramels
Apricot Coconut Bars (sorry you can't see the recipe -- but I have a hard copy somewhere . . . !)
White Chocolate and Peppermint Brownies
Sugar Cookies (with frosting and sprinkles, of course!)
Triple-Ginger Cookies (from Fine Cooking . . . and I can't find the recipe online anywhere! Sorry!)
Glazed Lemon Cookies
Perhaps I'll get the tree up this weekend, so I can really go nuts next weekend! Baking, Christmas music, decorations . . . what else does one need?? :)
Maybe an iPad, so I don't get flour all over my laptop? ;)
(Not this year, I know! But a girl can dream, right?)
