WIWT, cookies, & pups

WIWT 12.29.08

My long-sleeved kitty dress by I’m Your Present! I am trying to be REAAAAAALLY good at not buy anything from her for a bit (or any clothing at the moment)!

Today I finished baking up the peppermint swirl cookies. At first I wanted to bring them to my folks’ house on Xmas day, but I ran out of time and the dough has been in the fridge. I finally rolled up the layers and stuck them in the oven!

I found the dough not too pliable, even after I left it out to warm for a bit, and everything kept crackling and crumbling!!! So I ended up with a bit of air in my layers, which is sad (holes in cookies!). Also, I didn’t really prefer the flavor. I think I need it sweeter and more pepperminty!

Also I’ve never ever worked with nonpareils before AND THEY GET EVERYWHERES!!!!!!!

Today I also caught the pups cuddling in front of the space heater. Sorry it’s so dark. Bibi’s face is resting on Bunny for a while until Bibi gets curious and decides to come over and say hi.

Aside from baking cookies, I ended up eating a peanut butter brownie and left over stuffing today. I LOVE LEFTOVER STUFFING!!!

What is your favorite holiday leftover?

    I fell in love with those cookies on other blogs but it amuses me that, upon seeing yours, I thought they were pieces of ham. Up until about two years ago I couldn’t stand stuffing. And now? CRAVE IT. My mom bought some on-sale pre-made cornbread stuffing yesterday and it’s not great but I still can’t stop eating it. Though it needs gravy, I think. Though, really, what doesn’t?

    Also, you’re adorable as always!

      HAM!!! AHAHAH I wonder if it is because I didn’t use enough red food coloring. Perhaps it was my innate love for things fleshy colored….

        See, the subconscious gets you every time. It’d be just like you to make cookies that look like ham! And cakes that look like steak. Etc.
