Normally, on Friday, I post about our school week. And, since I usually take the photos on Friday, I don't have any because we took the day off school. The girls didn't seem to mind one way or other. And, I got some baking done.
I just realized that this is really the first Christmas that I did any sort of baking. Weird, I know! I spent the morning making cookies. All classic ones. I didn't want to try any new sort of cookie in fear that they would turn out horribly.
I made chocolate chip cookies, soft sugar cookies with buttercream icing, and brownies. I had a recipe for the chocolate chip cookies. I blogged about it here. But, for the sugar cookie, I tried a recipe from.... Yes, you guessed it. Pinterest! And, let me tell you. SUCCESS! I had a feeling they would be good when sour cream is one of the ingredients. The sugar cookies are so soft and, generally, perfect! Not too sweet either. I can't stand an overly sweet sugar cookie. I definitely think you should make them! And, I found a simple brownie recipe online somewhere. But, they aren't all that great. Not really worth mentioning.
But, the spread looks festive and I am sure they will be eaten up quickly once they are in front of the in laws!
I hope everyone has a great Christmas!
