Yes I had to bust out some Christmas Cookies before the kids went on break.
I figured the teachers are starting to expect them (not that one kept asking if I forgot and that the last day of school was today or anything....)
I got lazy....(been a pattern with me lately) and only made candy canes.
I figured not a lot of colors and easy to decorate.
I was chatting with Stacy over at Cardigans and Crayons about her Hot Chocolate bar she will be having at her house....which made me realize all the things I forgot on mine. Guess I'll file them away for next year. When thinking of her party I ran across the cutest thing in the Southern Living magazine. They took peppermints and melted them into a plate shape.
Well I just had to see if it worked. I followed their directions to a T and had an epic fail.
Preheat to 350
trace image (or freehand) on parchment paper
have a gap between peppermints
heat 4 mins (or keep an eye on them) or until desired look. Now they said 9 mins, but whoooa. That was too long. I had a melted mess on my hands. 4 or less is perfect.
I decided to do a few C's for my candy cane cookies. (I really wanted to melt the word COWBOY, but not as easy as I pictured)
Is everyone finished with your Christmas shopping? I am totally not...(did I mention I was tired?) I am very grateful for Amazon Prime Shipping...it's saved me. I'd say I'm 80% ready. I need to make my list and check it twice. Some of the little munchkins in the house might be getting coal. (I can't mention names)
My wish list?
glass top for my door table for craft table
20" x 20" piece of marble for rolling cookies
I hope I've been a good girl
