Out of all the four Seattle Christmases that Janna and I have lived together, this was our most successful year for baking. Between the two of us we made seven different kinds of treats! The most beautiful were Janna’s blue glazed sugar cookies with white snowflakes in the middle of the blue. They looked like something Elsa would have served in her ice palace. And those gingersnaps dipped in white chocolate? Janna took home a “Best Cookie” award at a Christmas cookie party with them. They were delicious! She said that her favorite, (after her true favorite of homemade caramels), were my red velvet cheesecake buttons—a new recipe for me this year. Those were fun and happily not so tedious to make as you’d think, but my favorite were still the “Best Cookie” award winners. The majority never lies. Merry Christmas!
