They need homemade baked goods donations for a charity bake sale this weekend. PERFECT for me. So I'm baking a ton of stuff. As of right now I'm thinking:

- Peanut Butter Mice Cookies
- Reindeer Cupcakes (either butter pecan/ caramel or chocolate/ pb or caramel)
- Mini bundts in red and green swirls
- Cinnamon Baked Donuts


Those may change. Or expand. Or lessen.

I'm about to make the dough for the pb mice. Fridge it overnight. I want to make more cookie types, but i'm not sure what. I feel like everyone is going to make sugar cookies, so i'm steering away from those. Hm.

Tree is finally up! Very unmotivated with the tree this year. Its a bit minimalist. Which is kinda nice too.

Christmas shopping is mostly complete. I made a bunch of stuff this year. Painting for my mom. Sewed a talking teddy bear for my gram. I'm rather excited about most of the gifts I'm giving.

Oh tv.
The Mad About You reboot is so good Have to watch it on my tablet which is annoying.
Still trying to consume all the Disney I can. Home Alone was a bit disappointing. As was the original Freaky Friday. I started watching Homeward Bound but I got too sad They don't understand where their people went!

I've been trying to do more around the apartment, especially since my husband is so busy this time of year. We make it work but this apartment is so small. I feel like i'm constantly waiting to move into a bigger place, to move back to the east coast.

Well. In the meantime. Baking! If you have any cookie ideas, do let me know.

Cookies with mustard.

Call them mustard cookies.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 2:23:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Apparently they don’t exist yet. There’s a cartoon character called mustard cookie though.



I’m sorry. I’m apparently on some Japanese wavelength.

Mustard is a product from the devil's ass.

Are these baked goods ones you've done before or new to you, to bake?

Giiiirrrrllllll...we moved from a three bedroom with a two car garage into a two bedroom apartment with no garage. We are having to rent storage. And now we have two extra people living with us who have many, many toys, clothing, books, baby equipment. Wowza. But I want to stay here unitl we buy a house because the rent is so cheap and we can save a lot of money to put towards the house we buy.

Yep, staying here because rent is cheap. And close to husband's work.

A little of both! Some ive made before, some i haven't some im tweaking.

New lineup:

- peanut butter mice (made 8 years ago)
- italian Christmas balls (made before)(might try to make them into snowmen)
- reindeer cupcakes
- Christmas pinwheel cookies (made similar, not this exact recipe)
- cinnamon donuts or mini bundts (both made before)

The Italian Christmas balls, are they cookies dusted with powdered sugar?
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 3:28:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Italian balls





I keep trying to think of a better name for them
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 3:48:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
M&m chocolate chip in the fridge, and i forgot the vanilla
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 3:53:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think the name is fine but change "balls" to "drops" if you like
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 3:57:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was thinking they were these

'Italian balls' might sound appealing to some, but the thought of any kind of 'iced balls' just makes me a bit uncomfortable now that winter is here...

I love those mice.

I have a recipe like that called Russian tea cookies. They are sooooo good. Feel like they might be too messy for this though
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 4:18:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Im hoping to make the ball/ drops into snowmen and avoid the whole ball/ drip dilemma, this time
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 4:20:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Those mice cookies are the cutest things EVER!
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 12/4/19 - 4:21:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Whatever you call them, they look delicious!
