The Virtual Cookie Exchange was a smashing success. I have recipes squirting out of my ears. Of course some of them will have to be re-worked to make them gluten free, so you will see them at a later date on this blog.
So I am off today to bake Christmas cookies with my daughter and granddaughter. My granddaughter is 2 1/2 and at the age where she loves to bake with Granny (that’s me)
This is a picture of Eilidh, helping me with a recipe for a Gluten Free pumpkin roll that I was working on for my Holiday Cookbook, the day after Thanksgiving. (Just in case you’re wondering, Eilidh was born in Scotland. Her name is Scottish Gaelic and pronounced (Long A-Lee.) I love cooking and baking, and doing both with my granddaughters just makes it more fun. Today we are not making a gluten free cookie because these are for my daughters’ cookie exchange at work.
We tried a cookie from the cookie exchange. They were Russian Tea Balls, from Kathie at The Creation of Possum Manor. This was the first time I had ever made these kind of cookies. They turned out really well and according to my daughter tasted really good.
As I mentioned in my blog on Monday, I want to make my blog fun as well as informative, so starting in January Thursdays will be Product Review Thursday. Since I babbled away today about baking cookies with my girls, I will be reviewing a Gluten Free Hamburger Helper type product tomorrow.
Thanks for reading.
