Last night I made my favorite Cookie. I only make it this time of year for, to me, it is too delicious to resist. And for my own health and the fat reserve around my hips, I must only splurge on it one time a year.
Linzer Hearts, or Linzer Cookies. I used the recipe from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. But the one on her website is pretty similar, so you will get the same results I am sure. I won't be hording them to myself. I shall pick out the prettiest ones (so everyone can think that I am a brilliant baker) and give them to my neighbors along with Russian Tea. I think I put my Russian Tea recipe somewhere here on my blog a couple years ago. It is not really Russian, it is just Tang and tea and spices, but I love it. I am normally a big tea snob, but I make an exception for this tea as it has so many memories attached to it, and makes a really simple gift to share. I just searched my blog and I can't find the recipe. I guess I stink about labeling my blog entries. So, I will make another blog entry with the recipe. I will make it a pretty one.
website if you haven't found it with your kids yet, you may want to. It is neat the way it puts the world in perspective a bit. Now it is not social and economic perspective. Just very simple, Santa flying around passing out gifts in cities along the way. We like it.
May you all have a lovely Holiday! And may you find peace within yourselves for a moment.
