It'll be A Bakery Up in Here



Or is that maybe a distillery! Yea, that would probably be more appropriate. Yesterday was all about relaxing at the spa which went very well I might add. I came home very limp....and relaxed. Popped a bottle or two of Merlot for the rest of the day and that was all she wrote. Today will be mostly about getting my holiday baking under way. Today I will be making most of my little liquor cakes. They are little bundt cakes. Last week I stopped and picked up the hooch for them. I will be making in no particular order, (as I'm not partial to any spirit, as their all my friends,lol,)Amaretto cakes, Triple Chocolate Rum cakes, Irish Whiskey Cakes, and Carrot Bourbon cakes. This will be the first time I'm am trying these. I'll have to see how they turn out, and if I'm still sober after I make them!!! Up next will be my Gingerbread Candy cookie that have crushed peppermint with a white icing on top. There always a favorite with everyone. Then a brisk walk with Buster Bolfig to walk off all the hooch consumed during the baking and to get some fresh air. Up next after those will be my sage cookies. They sound odd, I know, but are very tasty y'all. (sorry, I was channeling my inner Paula Dean.) They contain just a little sage in them. They are like a sugar cookie, just not as sweet. After baking them they are put together with apricot jam. Delish! Later in the week I'll be making my mother's famous cookie, the COOKIE, SAND TARTS! Every year more and more of my friends want these little suckers. I'll be doing a whole post of the making of them later in the week, per request. So yea, a busy day ahead but it is so worth it. I love to send some care packages out. I always think it is a nice touch to give a gift of something from the oven. Tootles!
