It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

How fitting that we awoke this morning, the Morning to Start Christmas Baking, to find the season's first snowfall had arrived in the night

Frequent breaks in the baking to check snow status ("Yep, it's still snowing!")

Cutout cookies with the secret ingredient and a nod to our Dutch heritage: almond extract

Jonathan didn't buy my "less is more when it comes to sprinkles" pitch;
Chloe thought pink would be the perfect Christmas accent

Bing Crosby's White Christmas+plenty of flour+50% of sprinkles finding their way to floor= Job well done

Looks like a fun time and a great start to Christmas!

Almond extract makes the world go round.

Actually, almond paste makes the world go round. Almond extract is the fuel that runs the almond paste engine that makes the world go round.

That and Toll House cookie dough.

Seriously, is it any wonder that I'm getting fat?

I can smell 'em from here! May I please have a tall glass of milk?
