Cookie baking day…and not a dolly in the kitchen…

I wasn’t a very good dolly blogger today… Rebecca and I decided it was time to do our Christmas baking and it took every bit of concentration to make sure we were doing things right. I guess I could have gotten a few dolls and posed them so you could see that they were “good helpers” but they don’t have any clothes… so who wants to see naked dolls stirring cookie batter…didn’t think so! Besides my hand mixer’s motor must have been about ready to burst into flames… we could smell it was a goner… :o( I sure didn’t want to chance a dolls hair catching on fire!

We got a lot accomplished and will probably be able to finish tomorrow… I think we had one of everything from Kroger…


Rebecca wanted to try 2 new recipes… a Red Velvet Cookie with a hugs or a cordial cherry kiss on top… pretty tasty!


This is the Red Velvet Fudge… but I tasted it and it’s TOO sweet… I think I might microwave it down and pour it over some angel food cake…


I made 2 batches of Candied Pecans… yummy!


… Chocolate Chip cookies…


…Chocolate Mint Cookie Bark…


…Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars…


Rebecca started bagging them up. It looks like we’re having a bake sale…


I’m so sugared out… someone PLEASE… give me a piece of broccoli!!!

See you tomorrow, hopefully with a doll in my post!
Blessings, Jeanne

  1. Wow Jeanne, they look great! I better get busy!

    • HI Cindy,
      I got up and made some Butter Pecan cookies this morning… the batter is chilling, but if they are anything like the batter, they will be my new favorites! Yummy! Trying to get everything boxed up and ready to mail out…
      Love you, Me

  2. I think you should read this in case you want another doll..

    • HI Kath,
      I posted a comment on your blog to let you know I ALREADY have 3 Little Darlings and they ARE wonderful, like you know!! I think your newest little sweetie is darling! You did a nice job painting her face…
      Blessings, Jeanne

      • I’m sorry but it isn’t mine.. sorry to mislead you… I was just showing how she got t hem faster and cheaper in case you wanted more… I love yours…

  3. It’s fun to see what you’re up to even if it’s not dolly related. I need to learn from you. My daughter keeps telling me it’s fun to see day-to-day things.

    Your cookies looks yummy!

    • Thanks Cindy,
      We are back in the kitchen today… trying out a new Butter Pecan cookie…the batter is delicious…and I wasn’t going to taste any cookies today…shame on me…
      Blessings, Jeanne

  4. OMGosh….on the way to the kitchen this minute!

    • HI Kathie,
      One bit of advice… DUCT TAPE …put it over your mouth, or you’ll be like me at the end of yesterday….so sugared out from nibbles, you’re miserable!
      Happy Baking!’
      Blessings, Jeanne

    The candied pecans look especially yummy to me! Do you share recipes? 😉

    All I can say is—-yum! I will be doing my cookie baking at the last minute because I always nibble on them and if I do it too early, there are none for guests, or maybe a few crumbs! This weekend I will be baking in earnest, and hope they last till Christmas! Yours are so good looking, Jeanne!
