Christmas cookies!

I'm exhausted. Two nights of baking 7 different types of cookies! Tonight I packaged them for gift giving and tomorrow they will be hand delivered.

My favorite to make this year were the cut out cookies pictured below. A basic sugar cookie recipe with royal icing, sprinkled sugar and some with coconut. Festive!

Happy Holidays!

Golden Velvet Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing.

I decided to modify my red velvet cake recipe (without the chocolate or the food coloring). I substituted 2 oz. of water for the 2 oz. of food coloring. I'm pleased with the result!
