Let the Baking Begin!

Lots of cookie decorating to do today. Sugar Cookies for the holiday season & gingerbread cookies are baking today and keeping us busy! I had to scrape the ice off my windshield this morning in Pittsburgh, so I thought I'd show some of our mitten cookies. Wish I had a pair of mittens on this morning while I was scraping away at 6 am, but now the sun is shining and it should warm up today.
 We're baking Black & Gold gingerbread cookies this year for our local Pittsburgh fans. For those of you not from the Burgh, these are our favorite colors around Pittsburgh, especially when the Steelers and Penquins are playing! Sports are BIG around this city. I wonder about introducing Black and Gold into the Holiday season as I am mostly a Christmas traditionalist but well, they are only cookies! And they really are cute.

 Red & white are so bright and festive during the Holiday Season. These candy cane brownies are made from a deep dish chocolate brownie with chunks of Belgian white chocolate. After the brownie is baked and cooled, we then melt more white chocolate, drizzle it on the brownies and then add the perfect touch with crushed peppermint candy canes. Decorated Sugar Cookies in the shapes of candy canes are also included in the Holiday Cookie Box along with an assortment of homemade cookies from Chocolate Chip to Peanut Butter and Cranberry White Chocolate.
And finally to remind us all of what is coming...
