Cookies & Cocktails

I had a little holiday baking party with Jaime and Michel (@JRummerfield and @MrDentalHygiene) to prepare for my holiday festivities.

Sure, we made cookies, but this baking party was less about perfect baking and more about eating what wasn't burnt and a little champagne-fueled merry making.

Despite what the package of Easy Squeeze frosting says, it is not ready to use.  It doesn't come with any tips!

The frosting was spread the old fashioned way - with a knife.

The cookies turned out pretty cute anyway... lots of character! ;) Michel made the snowman in the center, I decorated the snowmen on the sides and Jaime created the holly.

For this champagne cocktail, we coated the rims in green and red sugar after a dip in light corn syrup to keep it in place.  A sprinkle of fresh pomegranate seeds gives the champers a tart pop when you sip.

Setting up the display...


A smashing success!

I love that Michel is there, but I'm not surprised, he loves being in the kitchen. Michel, love you and miss your peanut butter cookies! JT
