Menu Plan: Days 2 through 8 of Christmas
Something new I'm trying this year is making twelve days of cookies, one for each day of Christmas, rather than trying to make it all at once. I've already made almond brutal, fudge and loads of Chex Mix, and will make some peppermint bark and coconut balls as well. My schedule of cookies is:
Day 1: Brown Sugar Shortbread
Day 2: Sugar Cookies
Day 3: Chocolate Cherry Cookies
Day 4: Zimmesterne
Day 5: Almond Blossoms
Day 6: Cherry Almond Biscotti
Day 7: Snow Caps
Day 8: Pistachio Linzertorte with Cherry Jam
Day 9: Cream Cheese Pastry Cookies
Day 10: Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies
Day 11: Saudi Nut Crescents
Day 12: Glazed Lemon Ricotta Cookies
I, foolishly, signed up to be in charge of the coffee hour at church in two weeks. So, I'll be freezing a bunch of the cookies to put out with the coffee then.
I had a great idea that crushing Chex mix would make a nice coating for chicken fingers, so I told Rich we'd try it out this week. I will report back as to whether or not it was a good idea.
