Here are the cookies on the sheet right before baking them.
Living the Life by noskos chose Linzer Sables for this week's TWD challenge! Excellent choice, especially with the holidays right around the corner.
I am exhausted from my trip to Orlando. Therefore, I make no apologies for bad photos, misspelled words, or incomplete sentences. Or bad hair.
Linzer Sables are cookies, easy to make, easy to eat. I used pecans instead of almonds.
I told the yankee that once we returned from our Thanksgiving trip I was going on a diet to lose a few inches around my middle so that my Christmas dress would fit. Right now it doesn't. So I show up to work this morning and my sweet friend, June, surprised me with brownies. My favorite. So I did what any sweet, loving, friend would do and I ate them. I shared, but I also ate.
Ok, back to the Linzers. Here is a photo of my piecrust, oops I mean cookie dough.
Here are the beautiful flowers my son, Cameron, sent me for my birthday last week. I like this picture better than the cookie dough one, don't you?
Here we are on Thanksgiving at Mitchell's house in Orlando, working hard to make the perfect feast. Excuse the hair. It's not the best look for me. Neither is the fur lined vest - what was I thinking that morning????Night at Pat O'Brien's singing with the dueling pianos. Karioke anyone? Don't judge him by this. He's a great guy. Beer was involved.
Watching the Alabama/Auburn game in the middle of a restaurant filled with Florida/Florida State fans. Us being the only Auburn fans in the crowd. Getting slaughtered by Alabama. But having fun eating wings and again, drinking beer.
We saw the Four Christmases with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. I have never laughed so hard in a movie. I highly recommend it!
We played lots of Phase 10 and Balderdash with our friends Curt, Wendy, and Nick.
What a great Thanksgiving. I hope it was as good for all of you!
LOVED the linzer sables. Will definitely make them again and maybe even share next time. I'm on my fourth one tonight as I type this. . . . .
And here we are and it is December. . . what the hay? Where did November go?
