Christmas Baking 2013

Christmas Baking 2013 was a success!

The intrepid bakers: Beth, Madeline, Ann, Nancy, and Daniel.

We baked a grand total of 9 things:

  • Chinese almond cookies
  • Jan Hangel cookies
  • flaxseed crackers
  • gingerbread
  • marshmallow puff tartlets – which I renamed Hufflepuffs
  • mocha nut butterballs
  • shortbread
  • Turtle bars
  • white chocolate & macadamia nut cookies

Here’s Madeline, baking Turtle bars:

These are from the new recipe I decided to try, except instead of putting jam inside with the marshmallow, I put dulce de leche:

The recipe was called “Marshmallow Puff Tartlets”1, but I kept calling them Poofy Puffs, before finally deciding they should be called Hufflepuffs

And now we are all very tired and filled with sugar. Like I said: success!
