MIA


Sorry I'm been MIA a lot of this week. I had to do some shopping so my children wouldn't all cry on Christmas morning. DH/Ex-Hernia Boy either. :)

I'll be back later this weekend (or even today, depending on how the baking goes!) to offer up one last Christmas gift suggestion. Although I'm sure you've all finished your holiday shopping. Ha!

Wish me luck. I'm trying my hand at....buttertarts!!! (from a Mennonite recipe)

I leave you with this buttertart thought from goodyman.com:

"Consider the butter tart’s singular place in our history combined with its 'typically Canadian' appeal; sturdy yet sensitive; reliable and adaptable; at home in the lunch bucket, the boardroom, or on a doily."

OOOH, what's a butter tart and where can I get the recipe? It looks scrumptious.

Today is almond sugar cookie making day, since we've just run out of the chocolate cherry ones (Cooking Light recipe -- very yumm) I made two weeks ago. I've learned if you freeze baked cookies, you can keep them for up to 3 months.

I never thought of it before but I guess the butter tart really is a Canadian thing. I love 'em!

Let us know how the recipe works out - there are few things more heavenly than a warm butter tart.

Oh! That tart looks good in the picture. If they turn out like that I might show up on your door.

Evidently you can't go wrong with a buttertart! That must be reassuring in this crazy holiday season... ;) Good luck with all the shopping!
