My brother is a hairdresser, and at this time of year he comes home every day with homemade goodies - consequently, I have no need to be baking. I miss it, but it's really a blessing - we have loads of delicious things for dessert, and I can be doing something else. Then, when the pre-holiday madness is over and our dessert supply is dwindling, I can take the time to make Christmas cookies and not be rushed about it!
We still have plenty of coffee cake, fruit-type cake and candy left, but today I really felt like baking, so
I rolled these in a deep yellow sanding sugar - I have a lot of kisses left
I think I'll have to make some more!
