Jingle Bells, Cookie Time...


Fellow Blogger and namesake Barbara from Moveable Feasts got me in the mood with her cheerful, fabulous post on Cranberry Rum Shortbread Cookies . So yesterday I spent a whole day in the kitchen producing not only those truly delicious and very adult cookies (thank you, Barbara for sharing this recipe, a real keeper!) but also batches and batches of the ones you see above. Simple sweet shortbread with lemon sugar glaze. They will be served as one of several desserts at our traditional "Countdown to Christmas"- party. Now I can't stop humming "Jingle Bells"......
