Before we got started, I had to empty a canning jar of homemade vanilla. It smells so good!
New cookie this season - whiskey caramel cookies.
Youngest helped make one batch of hard tack candy - root beer. I used a non-gmo/organic corn syrup.
A batch of our favorite butter cut outs.
Another new recipe. These are crock pot cinnamon pecans. I found the recipe online. You bake them in the crock pot and then cool them on parchment paper. Delicious!
And this is cutting it back, ha ha! We are still making a few more. Today, I leave the kitchen to the girls. My 19 year-old is baking a cake for her youngest sister's birthday.
The scrap cotton yarn rug is progressing. I'm using every scrap yarn I have, even if it only makes one row on the rug. It's my late night project right now.
Yum...you have some wonderful looking goodies! I really,really need to make some more vanilla! What a colorful rug! It sure will brighten up some room when you are done.
I love the smell of my house when I bake. But hubs is a diabetic now and not much baking going on around here anymore.
Lovely makes I will have to look up making some vanilla essence and the pecans :-)
I thought about slow cooker nuts for Christmas, we're not huge cinnamon fans, but I'm going to look for recipes with pecans, I have a bag of them that need to be used. Thanks for jogging my memory! Those whisky cookies looks amazing. My bf and I are big whisky collectors, my fave is Canadian, his is bourbon. Just curious what whisky do you use? Is it your recipe that you'd be willing to share? :)
I had to laugh - cutting back, indeed! I really like that rug. Even though I have never crocheted, I wonder if I would be able to make something like that. I have oodles of scrap yarn, since I never can throw anything yarn away.
Thanks Liz, I hope to have enough scrap yarn to make two or three rugs.
Kim, I really should not be making even this much stuff (Hubby's sugar issues). I hope to spread the goodies to my Dad and Mom too.
Dawn, I typically make my vanilla in February then let it sit until December or when I need to refill.
Rain, I used Jack Daniel's. I used Taste of Home's recipe, but next time will make my own caramel sauce I think. Recipe: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/caramel-whiskey-cookies
Susan, I use a basic crochet stitch and cotton yarns for the rugs. I'm sure you'd be able to make them.
Yes, the whiskey/caramel cookies do look awfully good! I thought about trying some new cookie recipes this year, but didn't get to it.
Your rug from scrap yarn is so attractive. Sort of like a scrap quilt which is about my favorite kind.
Love the rug. I'm not baking this year. I don't need the extra calories. Your sweets look great though.
All looks so delicious.
Mama Pea, I still want to try one more new recipe, but it will be after Christmas.
Denise, I don't need the sugar either, nor my husband, but the kids will goggle them up for me.
