Last week we made these sugar cookies. We ran out of powdered sugar before we could make frosting, so I just dusted the cookies with white sanding sugar and (sigh) I just love how they turned out: so simple and not too sweet.
If you're ever in New York I highly recommend you visit Papabubble on the Lower East Side. It's a shop for hand-made, old-fashioned hard candy. In fact, you can watch them make the candy right in the story. The flavors are a little more grown-up--passion fruit, orange cardamom--but so far Jasper loves them. I got us a jar to sample through the holidays and a giant peppermint star lollipop for Jasper's stocking.
This weekend we did our annual family tradition of visiting Santa at ABC and getting mud-thick hot chocolate, homemade marshmallows, and cookies at City Bakery. I love an excuse to moon around ABC. See the Jasper-Santa summit here.
Ganesha welcomes you to buy many lovely treasures...
