talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

We were sad that our friend Robert was under the weather and we couldn't see him to go make cookies with him, but we had a lot of baking ingredients assembled so we just went ahead at home. I wish we'd had a copy of The Doorbell Rang handy, but Fiona decided that cookie math is really very enticing even without it.

We made (and sampled) lemon snowflake cookies, magic cookie bars, peanut blossoms, peppermint flavored twist cookies, chocolate pretzels, and got pretty far with the espresso truffles, too.

We went ahead and rolled the dough I had made and used cookie cutters and tubes of icing. Since we don't use cookie cutters often, we have Christmas ducks, hearts, flowers, bunnies and shamrocks. Oh, and a few stockings and trees.

"Decorating cookies is fun even when you're sick," Robert enthused.

I believe he has an upper respiratory infection. He's getting better about covering those coughs, but not enough to have friends over. We would hate to infect anyone, especially before the holidays.

Sorry Robert isn't feeling well.
My sisters and I had our marathon baking day on Friday. We made peppermint swirls, snowballs, orange snowdrops, peanut butter kisses, choco-peanut butter, chocolate cake mix, lemon cake mix, chocolate chip, ginger creams, and macaroons. We always have a fun day and I seem to end up covered with flour or powdered sugar or something! Happy baking to all!

You guys are impressive! I'm looking forward to baking with Jessie, but I can't imagine baking more than one or two kinds of cookies in a day. And making caramel corn. (of course!)

What a wonderful book to learn math by! I loved sharing this with mine when he was young.
