I've caught the baking bug of late. Some morsels were for a lunch I was planning, but the bulk of it was tucked in the freezer to have on hand. I wouldn't say that I have a very sweet tooth, but at this time of year an ancestral reflex must come into play as the temperature drops and the oven gets preheated.
For starters, shortbread seemed like a good idea at Christmastime.
I'm a fan of Lorrie's rugelach recipe. These were a big hit with my lunch guest. I like them warmed up just a touch.
Mince tarts are a classic at this time of year, some people love them, some people don't. The pastry is homemade, but I confess that the filling came from a jar. I can live with that. Maybe I should try making the filling sometime. Have you done so?
Warm butter crescent rolls.
Count me among those who still enjoy bread . . .
especially when accompanied by a bowl of hot soup and a fresh salad.
We celebrated lunch and and our friendship.
Then I sent my guest home with stockings and baked goods.
It was time well spent. Here's wishing you your own special times.
Thank you for visiting and for your thoughtful comments.
