I am NOT a sweets person, but my son is. Therefore, every Christmas I bake a bunch of stuff per my sons' request. This year was a bit different as there were a lot more requests for candy type goodies. So yesterday, I spent 6 hours or so, rolling, sifting, baking, coating, tasting the following goodies. I am NOT a baker by any stretch of the imagination, but I do it once a year as my son loves it so. I will admit, I do get into a groove, particularly when my son is in the mood to help, as he was this year. After all, that's what it's all about really. Togetherness...happiness......laughter.....and...oh yea, sweet yumminess. So... I offer to you:
Pretzel Chocolate Mint Bites
Egg Nog Cookies
Chocolate Sambuca Cookies (OK, so that was my pick)
