Well another Christmas has passed. I'm still enjoying the 'high' of Christmas but also glad for the break. A lot of hustle and bustle (read: really darn busy-ness!) go on during this time. My hubby and I opted for a joint effort gifting of a Christmas cookie platter this year, and the star of the plate were these snowflake cookies based on these pretties from The Bearfoot Baker. Now, she is a master cookie decorator so ours were a bit more basic. But they tasted yummy all the same and we had many compliments on them. I even used Alton Brown's Royal Icing recipe! This inspired us to do it up a bit more elaborate next year and we get to practice all year! :)
Did you have any special projects this year that (maybe made you pull your hair out, but) was worth it in the end?
