Here’s a fun and quick Christmas treat! Santa Hat Brownies.



When you have fresh strawberries and you have a baking commitment that requires something finger-food friendly, what do you do?

Strawberry scones!

Before they went into the oven…..

The end result.

And for those of you who would like chocolate……

I found this recipe over at The Pioneer Woman’s website and just had to give it a try. I do admit that it is a bit more labor intensive to get the cookies to curl properly and not cave in on themselves, but quite honestly well worth the effort. The secret is to let them cook way more than you think you should because they need to be crispy, crispy, crispy or else they will fall on themselves and look yucky (but still taste quite delicious, I must admit).

I followed Ree’s recipe except I did not use cinnamon and substituted vanilla extract instead — I am personally of the opinion that one cannot have too much vanilla extract in anything.


Tomorrow is the Odyssey of the Mind Dessert Party and Silent Auction. It is the big and (we thought) last fundraiser before we go to Michigan. Everyone is making lots of desserts – I did vanilla pudding parfaits with crushed oreo layers and chocolate covered strawberries as well as a giant fresh fruit salad. The problem with all of this is that I have boys….hungry teenage boys, and friends and that means double everything so something survives!

Just a picture. It says it all.
