One of my favorite things to do in December is baking. The other is getting to play Christmas music on my guitar. :) And of course, reading Dr. Seuss books in bed right before I fall asleep.
Anywho, it's baking season. My Vera Bradley apron is ready to get sticky, floury (is that even a word?), and downright smelly (in a good way, like cinnamon and sugar kind of smelly). I already sent two of my elves out with banana muffins and snickerdoodles which were apparently devoured by the villages of their offices. I'll have to make more for them.
On Wednesday, my baking will be out of control. I will have the house to myself for almost the whole day, I hope, and I will be baking:
- gingerbread men and women
- sugar cookies, old-fashioned
- more snickerdoodles, and
- CAKE BALLS!!!!
Dolce far niente except baking! :D
PS#1: I really want to try making these someday soon, maybe for my birthday...
PS#2: I'm starting to sell my baked goods at a very reasonable price, so if you're interested, leave me a comment with your email address, and I will get back to ya asap. :)
