day 13 - eggnog cookies
Today I chose to continue on the eggnog theme, but I had to change what my original plan was. I was going to make eggnog custard in cute little custard cups. Unfortunately those aren't so easy to gift, so instead I made eggnog cookies, with a yummy eggnog glaze. I know, all those with an aversion to eggnog are glad I didn't show up at their house this afternoon!
AJ & Jimmy begged to lick the bowl and beaters, however we are limiting our sugar these days (given we've been on a high for 12 days, I thought it prudent to cut back a bit!), so they went directly into the sink full of soapy water. Once the cookies had completely cooled and the glaze had hardened, we packaged them up and took them to our church for the staff. The boys were slightly disappointed they didn't get to eat a cookies, but we talked about how much nicer it is to give to others... they agreed. The next thing AJ asked? "Mom... can we bake and give things away all day?" Almost...not all in one day, but for another 18 days we can!
