I've Been Busy, but Not Stitching Busy

This past week was the official Christmas baking week at my house. I love to bake, especially during the holidays. Since I don't have family over to enjoy these tasty treats, I pawn them off on the people at work. They don't seem to mind....

First off, we had Chocolate Chip cookies. Who doesn't like Chocolate Chips??? It's my all-time favorite cookie. I could eat the entire bowl of raw cookie dough (& not share ANY!!!), but I decided not to since I'd probably end up spending my entire night and the next day in the bathroom. My boss probably wouldn't appreciate that, so I was a good girl. Mostly anyway! LOL

We went from this heavenly creation...

to this...

and this...

and finally these!!

Oh my gosh! They were so absolutely delicious, especially just warm from the oven. I think I'm going to have to make some more!! LOL

Then, I made my annual batch of Crockpot Candy. This stuff is absolutely DIVINE and makes a boatload of candy. I didn't take pictures this year of all the candy just after dipping, but here's a pic from a couple of Christmases ago when we made it with my dad.

This is the tray I took to work yesterday for us to munch on throughout the day.

And a closer view, just to make you drool!! LOL

I still need to bake my annual batch of Peanut Butter Blossoms. I'll do that on Tuesday morning before I go to work then take them with me on Wednesday. It's a co-worker's birthday on Wednesday and these are her favorite cookies. I might also bake a cake, but I'm not sure what kind. On Christmas Day, I'm going to try my hand at a cherry pie for my husband. Wish me luck! I'm not very proficient at pie crust making.

Until next time!!

They do look so very yummy. My favs are choc chip & peanut butter blossoms. No matter what I try, my apt oven burns cookies, so I'm stuck with only store bought ones. :-( Perhaps you'd like to move near me??? LOL
