I love baking this time of the year. There are a lot of seasonal items during the Christmas holidays that you don’t see year-round. Gingerbread Twix is one of them. So if I’m bombarding you with all these sweets, my apologies!
Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely week. E and M will be visiting next weekend. I’m super excited, as I’ll get to see my two cute little nieces. Which means this weekend, I’ll have to start cleaning. Yuck! It’ll be the first time they’ll be seeing our new place since Chris and I bought it last fall. I gave a quick tour via FaceTime but that doesn’t really count. I’m dreading having to scrub and clean, but at least I’ll have these yummy blondie bites to look forward to after my cleaning.
My first attempt at making scones yesterday failed miserably. Not only was it unappealing, it was a bit on the dry side. There’s something about baking where you have to knead and/or shape the actual dough that frightens me. I’m sure I will eventually take another stab at it but it won’t be anytime soon.
So this morning, I was back in the kitchen again. I wanted to bake for Hanna, my Massage Therapist who has been working with me on my back pain issues. She has been such a tremendous help that I wanted to thank her. I was so relieved that these blondies turned out so well! After yesterday’s kitchen faux pas, I was a bit worried. So if you’re hankering for something sweet and if you like Oreos (who doesn’t?), you’ll love these!
