Eight Maids a-Milking

Walk into my kitchen during the month of December, and you will be able to immediately tell that, I am in full-on baking mode. Our kitchen is really small, so every available flat surface is covered. Fortunately, I have a very forgiving husband as he is the usual recipient for my efforts.

In years past, I often gave most of my holiday bakewares away and completely stressed myself out if I couldn’t get all the baking completed. Today, I am much more relaxed and if it gets done, then it gets done. But first, I make what I want to keep for the family and then I make what I want to give away.

My husband loves Toll House Cookies, and lucky for me, he actually helped prepare the batter so that all I had to do was the actual baking part. I still need to prepare another batch without nuts and then of course a batch of sugar cookies that I can decorate with royal icing.

Although it seems like I am just getting started, I really am much further ahead than previous years. So have I tapped into your sweet tooth yet?

    Okay, now I am going to the kitchen and tapping into my own stash! Made way more than I need and way more than I should have….so I'll just eat some.
    Merry Christmas
