and the cookies are finished. I was given the wrong instructions as to how many to make. It is 8 packages of 6 to total 4 dozen. I had forgotten how much work these cookies are, I made the dough on Friday evening and the cookies yesterday, Then with rolling into balls, baking 15 minutes, poking holes in the center of them, cooling completely, making the fudge filling, filling the cookies, sprinkling the chopped nuts on top and cooling and packaging. I was all morning doing this. Then have you heard the saying, “a messy cook is a good cook?” I must be a very good cook because when I was done with the cookies I had chopped nuts everywhere and fudge filling dotted here and there. The outcome of that was an hour to thoroughly clean the kitchen and hand mop the floor. The cookies are delicious though. The next time I will choose a much easier recipe.
As you can see I made extra cookies so that I could have some for cookie trays for my neighbors.
My niece, great niece and great great niece are coming over this afternoon. My great great niece will be 3 in March so she is really active. LOL I am not used to that but I always enjoy seeing her. She is such a beautiful child.
It is sunny and 25 degrees this morning. Just a great day to be alive and as Red Skelton used to say, “Aren’t you glad we both are?”
You all stay safe and be happy!!
