Now that we are in our first house, I have been able to do the holidays like I want to: lots of baking and lots of sparkle.
Today, I finally finished up all of the desserts, and I went shopping for mimosa supplies for Christmas morning. Now I just need to make the breakfast casserole. Want some recipes? Come and get ’em.
Almond Spritz Cookies
Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Libby’s Pumpkin Pie
For each pie, use about 6 large apples. It’s best to mix the types of apples: the best are northern spy’s (but hard to find). Also good are granny smith, macintosh, golden delicious, galas. Peel and slice apples in large bowl. Add about 1/2-1/3 C sugar per pie and 1/4-1/3C flour. Add at least a tsp of cinnamon. Toss all together and dump in bottom crust. Top with second crust and crimp edges. Cut slit in top to let steam escape. Bake for 45min to 1 hr @ 375 degrees F.
Christmas Pear Pie
Can you please tell me what cookie press you use and how you chill (or whatever) your spritz dough? I’ve tried making them and they never turn out well!
