Christmas Desserts 2019

Posted on

Well, late again, but earlier than last year! 

Also, I didn’t have quite as many mishaps this year– so that’s an improvement.

My biggest ordeal was making Rice Krispies treats for my son’s class party.

We had a concert the night before, so I stayed up until 11pm making them.

I was soo tired!

But they’re pretty, aren’t they?

The infamous Rice Krispies Treats.

Anyway, I woke up and packed them up– and we got a call that schools were closed!

No, there was no snow.

No, there was no ice.

No, there was no frozen tundra.

You get the point.

There was the possibility of some freezing rain, which never came.

So… since there was no school, there was no party.

Brownie trees. As you can see, I had an obsession with drizzling chocolate this year!!

Not related to baking– but the school closing ruined everything!

I had to drive to work later and it took forever…

I had to wrap up the Rice Krispies Treats so they wouldn’t dry out (because it was a Friday)…

We had to reschedule the party for next week, when I was supposed to be working on cookies…

Pumpkin Cookies

Anyway, guess what?

I was going to take the Rice Krispies Treats in on Monday– and schools closed again!

I gave up.

Gingy!

But then my husband volunteered to deliver the treats on Tuesday.

They didn’t dry out, and the kids loved them.

So, yay!

Rainbow Cookies

Other than that, I only burned my fingers twice on baking sheets.

But I didn’t drop the cookies as I screamed and let go of the sheets!

Shortbread Cookies

And the last crazy thing that happened was when I baked some white chocolate peppermint cookies:

Very Pepperminty Cookies

I used 3 different silicone sheets to bake them– and the peppermint smell wouldn’t come out!

I soaked them, scrubbed them, used vinegar, etc.

So I had my husband just buy me more because I was running out of time!

And eventually the smell did come out…

Lace Florentines

Anyway, here are the rest of my desserts:

Soft Gingerbread Cookies

Italian Ricotta Cookies

Snickerdoodles

Chocolate Spritz Cookies

Lemon Spritz Cookies

Chocolate Cups with Peanuts

Low Fat Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Almond Biscotti

And believe it or not– I used 2 ovens for the first time ever!

It was so much quicker!

Maybe next year I’ll make even more.  🙂

  3. I think gained a few pounds just looking at photos of your baking! Yum! The ricotta cookies look similar to my limoncello ricotta cookies-minus the multicolour sprinkles. Buon anno, Cristina
