PSF: Baking Fun

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


Last Saturday I got the pleasure of having a Mommy Day with my very good friend Michelle! We had planned this day for a day of baking for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a blessing to get to spend time with such a good friend doing something that we both love. I didn't get to bake near as much at I wanted due to a mistake while making sugar cookies! I added double of one ingredient and so had to double an already huge batch. so I worked on those most of the day. I did Sugar cookies, Peanut Butter Reese's cookies, and Pumpkin Cranberry cookies. Michelle made Sugar cookies, Peanut Butter Balls, and Ginger Bread cookies. It all turned out so YUMMY, (we did have to sample as we went). I froze it all to give as gifts for Christmas, and of course let the kids taste one of everything I made. Thank you Michelle for a wonderful day, and thank you Joe for occupying 3 active boys so we could share the day, you are the BEST.

What a GREAT idea! I think I should get my kids away for a day to work on holiday baking.

And we have that exact same red plate!

Oh gosh, it all looks SO good!! That is a great idea to freeze it all, but I don't have a freezer big enough to do that. =( I make batches of Christmas candy and cookies for our families, too. My kitchen is a mess for days but it is so totally worth it. I think the family thinks so, too!! =)

What a fun girl day! I always end up talking so much that I wouldn't have gotten any cookies made:-)

Your hubby rocks for letting you guys do that! And how fun! I guess you answered my question as to whether or not it's too early to make and freeze cookies for Christmas! Sweet.
