Even More Baking...

Still baking cookies. Today is, hopefully, the last day for a bit -- I need a rest! But I promised The Peanut that we'd make some sugar cookies (we're either making polvorones, a Spanish cookie that is so yummy or buttery spritz cookies, either way they'll have lots of sprinkles on top) and snickerdoodles.

Those are her favorites, and she made me promise to make them when she could help.

I also have to make some chocolate walnut fudge today, with Mr. ReddHedd's assistance.  My arm wears out while stirring the boiling sugar and butter, and he's happy to help because...well, because I'm making a big pan of yummy fudge.  That's incentive enough, don't you think?

Yesterday, I baked lemon meltaways, honey spice cookies with walnuts and jeweled fruit cookies with pecans.  I also made 5 dozen white chocolate haystacks with toasted coconut and chopped macadamia nuts.

Enjoy a little Julia Child while I go preheat my oven...

I love Julie Child. I remember watching her as a child. And Polverones? I loved them when I was in Spain. Now I feel homesick. You'll have to let me know how they turn out.

Thanks for sharing.
