and the baking are done. Not this year.
Anyway today was the day to change that. I got two sets of cookies done. The eggnog and the orange spritz. However the cookie press I bought this year for them is not co-operating. Either it's a hunk of junk or I don't know what to do.
I decided to roll the dough and get out the cookie cutters. I am happy with the result. I used the recipe Here on my top 10 baking list
The dough was very stiff so I added more orange juice (and eggnog) (1/2 cup). I also used twice the orange rind and for the nutmeg I used 1 1/2 tablespoons.
We also got the tree up and the decorating started. The kids are still putting up decorations. I think it looks lovely now. They will keep going though.
It's funny how these thing put you in the mood. A lot of the procrastinating was various family members (young and small) not bin in the mood. I think maybe to be in the mood we first have yo act like we are in the Christmas spirit and the rest will follow.
