Christmas Baking

A few years ago,  Jenn and I decided to have a day of baking in preparation for Christmas. The first year it was pretty small and we let the kids help out.  We quickly discovered that was too much work.  After refining our focus, we just allowed Kailey to join us.

The baking is an all day process involving all sorts of Christmas treats: Mom's Gimme the Recipe Fudge, the coveted Judi Krause's shortbread cookies, peanut blossoms, peanut butter bars, Nana brownies, salted peanut rolls, and introducing Yummy Balls of Yum.  Luckily, we had some visitors come over and taste test the products to make sure they met the highest standards of quality goods.

Adam and Anne helped us out with tasting

Jerry and Nancy came by as well
