What Time is It?

Time to start the holiday baking.


Up first - a Squirrely Biscochito, my favorite holiday cookie.
What's yours?

holidays or not... no bake cookies always win.

We already started here with the small people, the Pillsbury cake mixes, and the FunFetti. Your block 'o lard there is probably MUCH healthier than anything we made. Twitch...

Yummy sugar cookies are my fave! I could eat them until my stomach hurts.

Too funny on the squirrel cutter. What happened to squirrel wars anyway? What time is it? Time to come snark a bit re PR.

Shamu: The best gift, evah!

K9: Don't you worry . . .

Kym: You know, I don't think I've ever made a no-bake cookie!

MakingSpace: El Lardo rules!

Dani: These are like sugar cookies, only BETTER!

Pam: I couldn't watch last night, so will drop by this afternoon when I'm back home.

sugar cookies. Or those lemon ones you make that are 100% divine.

How do you decorate?

Before or after Ivan mutilates them?

Sounds like the anise flavor would really come through with 2 tablespoons.

Aunty asked for the recipe for "Mexican Hot Chocolate" when you first posted this.

Now, I be asking for it.

Boxer: I don't decorate the biscochitos – leave 'em plain.

Drinky: The recipe is on Undaunted – http://theundauntedbaker.

Ahh lard. I knew I liked you, Moi. My fave cookies are jam thumbprint and old fashioned sugar cookies cut out and decorated with coloured icing. I have a few fond memories of making those when my mum was still alive. My fave part (besides the decorating) was mixing the food colour into the sugar icing and how the "red" looking yellow dye turned out so sunny and bright!

Going over to your baking site now....
