Oh my Stars!

Finished cookies!!! I didn’t eat all the dough and here is the proof…I make the same kind of cookies every year.  Stars only with clear sugar crystals….They are sooo good.  I can honestly say I am a Christmas cookie snob…no one makes them better than these…I got this recipe from a 90yr old grandma of one of the guys I used to work with at the paper mill.  He brought them in and I made him go call her for the recipe that day.  I love home made sweets…and that is why I have to work out so hard…but truthfully since I have been home from Houston..a little over a month now…I have worked out with a trainer, kicked boxed or have done body combat for at least 5 days a week if not 6 most of those weeks…I mean I have worked very hard for a middle aged woman…I have watched my eating close as I can for a quilter who is around so much food….and guess what?  I have only gained 3 lbs…no really I have lost a few but not all that I have gained this year with being at the Gathering so much and eating Terri’s home cooking…you girls know what I am talking about who have been there…..Thanks to Mom and Ames we finished these cookies in about 3 hours.  The recipe is in our Primitive Christmas book….try them and you will become a Christmas cookie snob too and ruin it for anybody else’s cookies you try…

PS  I had a wonderful day reading all of the comments you posted to the email I sent out earlier this morning.  I don’t think I laughed that much in a long time….THANKS!…I also forwarded each and everyone to my shop girls so their day was filled with great comments and laughs too!  WE LOVE YOU QUILTING CHICKS!!!!Image
