So I’ve been following this community for months, trying to get the courage to join and post. I’m a bit nervous because I’m certainly no expert. I enjoy baking, but most of what I’ve done is based on mixes. But since I’ve spent what feels like the entirety of December making cookies and candy for gifts, I thought I’d share.
I’ve baked like 10 dozen chocolate chip cookies from ready-made dough. I will be doing another 10 dozen or so of what I call ‘the good kind’ for gifts for my parents. I’ve made about 120 shortbread cookies, and I spent two afternoons/evenings making candy mints. It’s the last two recipes I thought I’d share.
