The Baking has begun!

Today we started off with a batch of Spritz Cookies. These are #1 daughters' favorite from childhood. They go together so quickly and there is nothing easier than a pressed cookie!

Lots of Spritz

I had six dozen done in about thirty minutes! That's another reason I love making these.

Then we moved onto to Log Jams. Easy peasy! A simple butter cookie recipe rolled into a log and then a well pressed into the center. Fill the well with seedless raspberry jam and bake! Drizzle a lemon glaze over the top when they're cool and you have #2's favorite cookie!

I then quickly moved on to a batch of homemade marshamllows, mint and vanilla. They are set out to dry tonight and they'll be photographed when they're done tomorrow. ;-)

Number 3's favorite is chocolate sorbet. That I'm making Thursday along with some chocolate chip gingerbread and some chocolate krinkle cookies. Shopping tomorrow, so no baking but, pleanty more where these came from!
