Today’s cookie is so easy and quick you can whip it up for last minute guests. I wove in ends and put finishing touches on a knitting project while making them. The recipe is once again courtesy of Susan Branch, and can be found here.
Paul loves these macaroons. They’re chewy and chocolatey and just enough decadent for holiday baking.
Since they were so easy and quick I have plenty of time left over to clean up and watch It’s A Wonderful Life (in black and white. I maintain only heretics watch it colorized) before we head out for a family tradition: driving around to look at all the Christmas lights. It helps put us all in that holiday frame of mind. I like to do it as close to the day as I can, because it gets us all super excited for Santa!
