Santa’s Whiskers – Christmas Making and Baking

I made these many years ago.  This year I decided to make them once again. Things you need to remember - When you wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap, don't use press and seal plastic wrap.  That made it difficult to make a roll.  The coconut will make a mess.  Just keep the broom… Continue reading Santa’s Whiskers – Christmas Making and Baking

Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

I've previously mentioned how I like Joanna Fluke's Hannah Swenson books.  I'm rereading some of the books in the series.  As I was reading Key Lime Murder, she included this recipe.  I was instantly intrigued.  I've made other oatmeal cookies that included chocolate chips and M&M's.  This year I wanted something simple.  This cookie fit the… Continue reading Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

Christmas Baking

Every year I bake and create Christmas goodies.  My grandma used to do the same thing and then share with family and friends.  I have her bench she used to pile the containers onto and the Kitchen aid mixer she used to whip up the batches of delicious cookies.  Once I was an adult living… Continue reading Christmas Baking
