Sweets


I must admit
I have a secret to tell
I have a weakness
The truth is I love pastries.
It doesn't matter what kind,
I love them all.
I love baking them.
I love taking pictures of them.
I love smelling them.
And especially I love eating them.
Do you love pastries?
What is your favorite?
Is there something special you bake for the holidays?

First of all, your banner rocks, as does this tremendous photo, which looks like it should be the cover of a cookbook!

Pastries -- cookies get me every time and I always make several kinds at the holidays and do my best to give them away. Powdered sugar "jingle balls," ginger cookies, shortbreads, and of course cut-out cookies, which we decorate on Christmas Eve. TOnight I'm making pralines for my book club -- "The Help -- and we're bringing southern!

Mmmm, Christmas baking --- I enjoy making stolen and St. Lucia's crown bread. AND Candy Cane sweet bread with cherries and nuts. In our family, Munlie Men and bon-bon cookies are also traditional --- although technically I guess cookies are not pastries...but isn't holiday baking fun?

I love pastries too--they are a weakness! Re: Christmas baking...I just brought home some of my mom's old cookbooks and have stocked my cabinets with a lot of pantry staples--all done in hopes of baking some Nordic cookies and maybe a Swedish tea ring!
Blessings,
Aimee
PS: You have a beautiful sense of style! I appreciate your blog.

Mmm ... you suddenly have me craving something sweet and gooey and filled with cream cheese. I guess that would be my favorite! A chocolate-filled croissant would be a close runner-up!
