Denial by cookies!
We are supposed to move into our new home in 5 days. I've been asking Santa to send the packing fairy to our house early but to no avail. When I think about packing my right eyelid would start to twitch. So, I've moved to the land of Denial for now. I decided it was time to bake.
I intended to double everything but after the doubling the chai eggnog cookies and salted chocolate caramel pretzel bark I decided single batches of the rest would due. I used almost everything that I bought. That's a LOT of butter! I'm not sure why I made so much. It was a good distraction and possibly to make up for the fact that we have a little four foot tree and exactly 3 Christmas decorations up. If baking wasn't it's usual cathartic experience for me then I was just going to eat my way through the depressing state of our apartment.
Luckily though, the baking got done even in our tiny kitchen and I feel a little merrier. Needless to say the kid's teachers will be getting plenty of treats to start their break!
