I've been a busy little elf, and after the Cookie Swap, I've been inspired to carry on with the cookie and candy making.
For my pastry team, I bought oven mitts and stuffed them with little treasures:
And for friends and "chosen family" I made coffee caramels, nougat, more Spiced Cookies with Cranberry Jam and Jivara, and Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies with ganache and brandied cherries!
Chocolate thumbprints filled with ganache and brandied cherries!
Filling the spiced cookies.
Cookie and candy tins!
I hope everyone has a happy holiday! Merry Christmas and I'll see you in the new year!
