My Muse: Baking

For all 3 of you loyal Tinsel Tantrum readers (Tinsel included) you are well aware that I love baking with all of my heart. It calms me in times of stress, makes me happy when I'm feeling down and just generally makes me feel calmed and complete. I love how combining flour, butter, eggs and sugar in varying amounts can make such amazing and different concoctions. Also, my grandmothers were huge bakers and I'm pretty certain I inherited their kitchen skills.

And so, in their honor and in my 2nd annual christmas tradition, I baked all day long yesterday and made 7 different types of cookies for my friends. I'm hoping to get a reputation as the christmas cookie queen and therefore, people will clamor to be in my good graces and receive my cookies. It's my version of Anna Wintour's power in the fashion world.

Here's what I made:

Fudge with walnuts
Almond Biscotti
Peanut Butter Cookies
Russian Tea Cakes
Jam Thumbprints
Lemon Bars
Molasses Cookies
