Orders are all out....Christmas shopping is done...on to finish the baking and the wrapping today. These cookies are the BEST new cookie recipe Rosie and I have found. The Hershey's candy cane kisses themselves are sinfully delicious. Try them! Have a beautiful Thursday-Before-Christmas~ Carol and Rosie

1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons milk
Red and Green colored sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35)
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternatively with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

What you don't see: lots of coffee, chocolate, Aleve...and the laughter of two little amish girls helping me make it through these very long days and nights!
We're wading through the last few hundred orders, intent on getting all of them shipped by Wednesday, Dec. 19th. I need to sleep at least 3 hours or the migraines hit with a vengeance. So far...so good.
Two trees are finally up....some cookies baked....no shopping done....next week......
So...Happy Friday wherever you are in the world~
