Christmas Cookie Baking

This morning we shoveled out of our 16 inches of snow. After that Heather, Le & Maran braved the roads and came over for some Christmas baking while the guys watched football.

We made Rolo Pretzel Turtles with Dove Caramels since Heather couldn't find the rolos.

We also made Peanut Butter Blossoms where Maran made them a little heathier by using egg whites instead of an egg, almond milk instead of milk, low fat peanut butter and dark chocolate kisses.

We also decorated Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting, sprinkles and M&M's.

Snickerdoodles were also on our list of cookies to bake.

And then we made Peanut Butter Patties by making peanut butter sandwiches with Ritz Crackers and then dipping them in white and chocolate almond bark.

Peppermint Bark was a new recipe we tried out.

And to end the day we made these Chocolate Espresso Snowcaps.
