The first batch of Peanut Blossom cookies have just come out of the oven! My gram always cools cookies on newspaper and naturally mom does the same thing! How many other moms use newpaper to cool your holiday cookies on?
Check out this cool potholder that gram gave mom! It's a goat! Isn't he cute?!
The other cookie recipe we baked were the Russian Tea Cakes! Dad calls them Butterballs because that's what his mom always called them. It's the exact same recipe - just a different name!
The cookies are done and I've made a plate for Santa! I just need to pour him a nice tall glass of cold milk tonight so that when he slides down our chimney to leave Maggie and Mitch pressies he'll have a nice snack to tide him over till he stops at the next house! No snitchin', Miss Maggie! You have to be a good girl! Santa is still watching, ya know!
Merry Christmas, everyone! We hope Santa brings you everything on your Christmas list!
See you all next Wednesday!
