its beginning to look a lot like...

Okay, I think I'm finally feeling a wee bit organized for the Chrissy Day next weekend. 

Baxter, Nina & Monty have been baking our most very favourite chocolate chip bikkies today.
You'll notice the absence of a little girl named Gretta here. Yes, she went to bed after refusing to eat her nourishing soup for lunch. She's had a good sleep now, and that soup is waiting for her on the bench before she can have a skerrick of a cookie. Do you think it'll work. I have my doubts. She's more stubborn than her bull headed mother. Which is saying a lot.

Ghiradelli Sierra Nuggets.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 t bicarb
1t salt
1/2 t mace
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/8 t gr. cloves
stir together and set aside 

1 cup soft butter
1c raw sugar
1c brown sugar (we use coconut palm sugar)
1T milk
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 eggs (we use 3 eggs when we use spelt flour)
combine till a little fluffy.

mix wet and dry then add

2c cornflakes
3c oats
1c coconut
2c dark chocolate chips
1c nuts (optional)

bake in medium oven for 10-12 minutes.
makes A LOT. about 6 or 7 dozen.

Do you have any traditional recipes that you make during Christmas?

Things are looking mighty fun and festive around there. It is nice to see you using so many recipe favorites from your little girl days. Gretta Elizabeth, get your cute little attitude together. You're missing all the fun baby girl!
