Cookies!

OK We've succumbed to some Christmas baking! Here are the results of our madcap assembly line baking spurt.


The perfect peanut butter cookies, which usually get forgotten, but not this year. Crumbly and soft, especially good paired with strong hot tea.

Mexican Wedding Cakes or Russian Tea Cakes, depending on your heritage. The chocolatey ones are rum balls made with bourbon since I have a lot of bourbon. Just as good, trust me.

Magic Cookie Bars, made with graham cracker crumbs, a stick of butter, a can of sweetened condensed milk, milk chocolate chips, coconut and almond and brazil nuts. Omy! Good thing I went to the dentist yesterday.


And then the famous Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Almond Brazil Nut cookies. Drat, I forgot to add coconut to those too.
This year I am not cooking for a crowd, so I think I will throw together a small intimate dinner for two, International Style. Potato and Cheese Pierogis with sour cream and bacon, Pulled Pork (it's warm enough to barbecue!) Peas and Carrots, and Baked Apples with vanilla ice cream.
I will wear my expando-matics.
Merry Christmas My Darlings!
Love, Melody

  3. Love your stuff, I'm still going thru your past posts, so I must say I don't agree with you about not doing a book. Put me down for a copy when you change your mind.
    For instance, you frequently show the results of your bloomers or power stips class, I would love to see one of those step-by-step. I don't live near any of your classes. You mentioned in one post about buying some fabric (rayon? polyester? I don't remember) and that it fused successfully but you always recommend hand-dyed. Is there a way to treat bought fabrics to make them fuse better?
    And you showed Angie pleating the fabric for dying, which wasn't mentioned in your Lazy Dyer piece.
    I'm not complaining mind you... well, yes I am. Write that book. From fabric bolt to finished quit.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  4. Also, I've been reading about your "painting vs. quilting". You might want to try a method used by some in my silk painting group - they coat a canvas with acrylic medium and smooth the silk painting onto it, then sometimes put on more coats. You could try fusing one of your smaller tops to a canvas and painting over it with acrylic medium.
    Just to experiment.

  7. I was going to ask you what Christmas cookies you make. The only ones we seem to have in common are the russian tea cakes. Glory helped me make them, and asked, "why couldn't we roll some in cinnamon sugar?" Never occured to me. So we did, and guess what? The girl is a genius! We also did ginger bread (for the first time) cookie press cookies (I'm surprised you don't make these) and some failures called cinnamon stars. Some cookies should not be attempted in the tropics.
    Many things should not be attempted in the tropics.
    Next year I will add the peanut butter cookies as I miss them.
