Baking for Christmas (and for Us!)

I made cinnamon rolls last night. 

I also made some kolaches this time.  I'm using the recipe I used here.  It's very simple, especially if you do like me and let the bread machine handle the first part.  The filling is blueberry pie filling.  Mr. Sweetie Pie took some of these to work today to share with co-workers.  They got two thumbs up.

Can I just say, YUM!!!

I also made these Raspberry Cake Bars, found here.  I had made some sugar cookies earlier in the evening, so I used my own cookie dough instead of the purchased cookie dough their recipe uses.

I've wrapped them up by two's and put them in the freezer.  They'll be added to my Christmas packages I'll try to get shipped out to family this week.  These are really good.  I'm glad I tried them.

Yes, I have tasted (and more than tasted) everything I made last night.  I was a bad girl, but it sure was good!  Plus, don't you feel it's my duty to be sure I'm sending only things that taste good?  Had to be done.

Hope there are lots of good things to see and do and taste in your life today!

Hugs and kisses,

it is definitely your duty to taste test!! My mother used to make wonderful cinnamon rolls (and bread and coffee cakes). I didn't get the yeast bread gene.

It's so good of you to take one for the team. Tasting is mandatory! All your goodies look wonderful!
