First, do you remember these cute pinwheel cookies I previously attempted?
The dough was gooey and didn't work out just right. So, I tried again, with my old fashioned cookie dough recipe. Here they are again....
|My red certainly isn't as vibrant, not sure how to achieve that bright of a red without adding so much color that it bitters the taste. Any ideas?|
One of our favorite cookies this Christmas were these Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies. Oh Yum! They were even better the next day and so appreciated, the kids asked me to make more when they ran out. I did make the mini cookie sandwiches, nice bite size deliciousness.
|Here are my helpers. Kristy was piping the filling on the cookie, Nate was adding the top cookie, and Matt was rolling the edges in colorful sprinkles.|
|Not the best photo, but the only close up I have. I repeat...these were yummy!|
Here are a couple photos of mine.
|You need to use 100% cotton yarn for dishcloths. I used this Sugar 'n Cream, 2.5 oz. I was able to get about 2 1/2 dishcloths from this skein.|
I did use some different ribbons to tie the, some rafia, and added some homemade tags. Just didn't take time to photograph those.
This beauty is on my Pinterest Wishlist:
And this is on my kitchen counter! Amazing husband! Yes?
|I was allowed to have it a couple days before Christmas. It has already seen a good bit of use and I LOVE IT!|
That will be a wrap for today. I've been out of blog land for a few weeks now. Been so busy and took a break. I have some other things to share and catching up today, especially on reading some blogs. For now, I hope everyone has enjoyed a joyous start to their new year.
