This year, I've decided to put some real effort into holiday decorations. I'm sticking to traditional colors and making lots of my own ornaments. Etsy is a great resource for handmade Christmas decor. Polymer clay, bits of wood, sequins, pine cones, beads, buttons, ribbons, felt, bells, and paint will be everywhere in my kitchen. Like an explosion. I can't wait!

Preheat oven to 350˚
1/2 C sugar
2 1/2 C plain flour
2 sticks butter, softened
Add sugar to the softened butter and mix. Then add flour and knead with hand until all is absorbed. Turn onto a cookie sheet. You can cut these out first or bake in one piece. Bake approx. 25 minutes or until lightly golden. Cut while still warm.
The topping for these is one I whipped together without a recipe using a double-boiler. It's semi-sweet chocolate chips, cream, vanillla extract, and sugar. I couldn't wait for them to cool and set before I had one! This was my fifth cup of tea for the day. I drink a lot of tea. This one is a loose leaf vanilla black tea.

After a day of sewing like mad for my Etsy shop, I decided it was time for something sweet. I usually have sweets in the house, but I wanted something warm from the oven. I had actually been perusing Etsy for candies and sweets to buy for Christmas...
