We Couldn't Wait

Remember I mentioned that I met Nancy and Dawn for dinner last week? Well, the lovely Nancy brought along delightful boxes of goodies for each of us - she always wraps things in amazingly beautiful ways.

They were filled with the most beautifully decorated Cardamom Honey Snowflakes so I dutifully took mine home to the Official Cookie Tester thinking that we could freeze them and enjoy them over the holidays. Not! I should have put them into the freezer right away, but noooooo, I left them on the counter for a bit. That's a challenge when you live with a cookie fiend.

And, being the kind-hearted soul that I am, I could not let him sample them himself, so, in very short order we finished off a couple each. De-lish! No point putting the rest into the freezer after that!

Aren't they just gorgeous? Apparently drinking plenty of wine is the key to her decorating prowess...

I'm still plugging away at a few little birds for the tree but quite frankly, there is so much going on with Christmas prep right now that I don't know if they will all get done. This might be handwork that I pick up during the holly-days. Oh well, I can still add them to the tree.

Note to self: next year finish all shopping by the end of November....M

It looks like I need to start drinking wine. Those are beautiful cookies.
I love that you test the recipes for us and then give them to us.
All your goodies amaze and inspire me.
Merry Christmas!
