I've kept myself quite busy today! Ran errands, stopped at a garage sale (will share those treasures tomorrow), been doing laundry and made some cookies:
Here's the recipe:
CHOCOLATE ORANGE SHORTBREAD COOKIES
1 pound salted butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
grated rind of 1 medium orange
4 cups + 2 tablespoons flour
1 bag mini Chocolate chips.
Mix butter & powdered sugar together. Add vanilla & orange rind. Add cocoa powder. Add flour 1 cup at a time. Add mini chips. Mix well.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet (I use Parchment Paper on my baking sheets). Press with a glass dipped in sugar. Add pretty sprinkles. Press again with glass dipped in sugar.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until done.
Heaven help me! These just melt in your mouth!
In other news, I've been stitching on a few small Crazy Quilt blocks. These 2 are ready for sewing together:
And this is what I'm stitching on now:
These will be 6 inch ornaments.
Finally for today, I thought I'd share my mom's latest projects with you:
These are crayon tinted, embroidered and beaded!
Tomorrow we have a nice Flea Market to go to. Oh, how I love my flea markets! Scott & I will pick mom up around 8 am and we'll head up there in hopes of finding some nice vintage treasures.
See ya tomorrow!
