I have been baking up a storm since around 6am this morning. We're having a Harvest festival at our church tonight, and I signed up to make some treats for the cake-walk. With the kids still snuggling in bed, it was the perfect time for uninterrupted work.
I officially declared today a day off of school (the first we've taken this school year) and it seems like a treat to do anything that isn't school related during the day for a change. I may even sneak in a short nap this afternoon; but let's just keep that between you and me;)
Here are pictures of the cookies I made.
I used my own homemade sugar cookie recipe, which I'm afraid I can not share here (it's a closely guarded family secret;). However, here is a link for the candy corn cookie recipe. I used my own dough, but followed the recipe for the design. They turned out so cute and colorful. And I made extra of the chocolate layer to use for the bat cookies. I should warn you: kneading the chocolate into the dough is quite a messy job. It was worth the trouble for the final product though.
I still plan to bake and decorate a chocolate cake, and to put the finishing touches on our costumes. We're dressing the whole family with a theme this evening, which has neccessitated making some of the items needed ourselves.
So what is our theme this year? That's another highly guarded secret;)
Let's just say we'll be following the yellow brick road to the festival:)
