-:- holiday cheer

This weekend I occupied myself with some quiet holiday baking that we shared with our neighbors and Mr.'s coworkers. Mr. and I picked our favorite cookies (lime meltaways for him and Russian tea cakes for me) and then I added a few new recipes to the mix. I am in love with those Bounty balls - they are so good and I think they will become a new holiday tradition around here.

And see those cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies? Mr. said they might be his new favorite. I didn't have enough oats on hand, so I supplemented with another multi-grain hot cereal. I also ran out of brown sugar and ended up with just short of a quarter cup (instead of the half cup the recipe calls for). Luckily, the finished product wasn't adversely affected by either modification.
