Has this Christmas snuck up on anyone else?
Seems like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle and now, all of a sudden, it's Christmas time!
Can I let you in on a little secret? I just finished my Christmas shopping this week...like as in Monday afternoon..thank goodness for the internet.
And you can imagine if it took me that long to get my stuff together to buy gifts, that my cookie/holiday baking also took a hit.
In addition to the busy-ness that was my whole month of Decemeber, my cake business has been booming recently (yay!) and with two cakes to bake and decorate every weekend I really haven't had the chance to spend any other time in the kitchen.
By this time last year I was smooth sailing till Christmas- I had all my cookies baked...
my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
and Jeweled Lace Cookies (only 35 calories a cookie!)Not this year though... I just started baking cookies this past weekend! Would you all still want to see what I've made even after the holiday is over??
3 eggs, beaten
4 TBS butter, melted
3 TBS bourbon
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup, butter, brown sugar, bourbon, flour and vanilla until well combined.
