My Oven has been Working Overtime

For more years than I can remember,  DH and I have given our neighbours home-baked cookies and squares as holiday gifts. Most weekends in November you’ll find me up to my elbows in flour and DH up to his elbows in dirty dishes. This year has been no exception.

So far we’ve made five types of cookies (cranberry chocolate chip, honey spice, poppy-seed, reverse chocolate chip, roly poly) and two kinds of bars (brownies and butterscotch). The poppy-seed cookies and butterscotch bars are new this year, and if we need more still, I’d like to try Martha Stewart’s rosemary butter cookies.

Our freezer is half full with these treats and I’m keen to get this temptation out of the house. And to head back to the sewing room.
