I really do enjoy baking, however, Mr. Lucas does not eat a bunch of sweet stuff. The problem is, since he does not eat sweets, if I baked them regularly I would eat it all myself and be morbidly obese. I have really been wanting to bake so this weekend, I just did it. I figured I could give most of it away and not feel guilty for eating a few treats. So, I got to baking!
But first things first, egg nog!
I made chocolate chip walnut cookies from the Fannie Farmer Cookbook, best recipe ever!
Some of the cookies I dipped in chocolate.
I also made chocolate dipped pretzel sticks and coated some with chopped walnuts.
Then, to bring things to a close, I made molasses cookies. It was so much fun, I have not baked that much...ever! All while jamming out to some Christmas tunes on Pandora.
My parents and Grandmother leave for Ruidoso, NM, tomorrow morning so packaged up some of the treats for them to have while they are on the road.
I ended the evening with watching Christmas Vacation, the funniest Christmas move ever!
