Baking this Thanksgiving

We had our first snow fall yesterday, so I get an extra day to stay home and bake.  Work is planning a cookie swap, and I have made my first 3 of five different types of cookies, Gee, signing up for the swap was so easy, but when you have to produce cookies in a few days it makes me feel under pressure.  I choose my favorite shortbread cherry cookies as my first to bake, it freezes well and needs the longer time to cool...nothing goes without a 'hitch' in hooterville...  I had my last batch in the oven and the power went out!  (came back on - but now I am scared) Yikes... I'll hold off on baking the others...which are the classic sugar cookie, I found the secret to the thin sugar cookie was nutmeg, and candy cane cookies - peppermint our course

Since
it is just me and my husband this year, we have a light dinner planned, I did make a nice pancake breakfast to start our day before we headed out to shovel. 

Wish you  all a blessed day!
