Fried Egg and Bacon - Cookies!

WOW it has been a while since I posted.

I've still been baking and attempting to decorate, but "life" has all but eliminated my blogging time. But I started a new (less stressful) job a few weeks ago, so hopefully I will have more time to post my successes and failures.

Here are some cookies I baked for Thanksgiving. Not very traditional I know but I saw them at a work luncheon and I had to give them a try....

The egg portion is sugar cookie and the bacon is pretzel sticks. Too cute. Or at least I thought so.

The yoke was the most difficult part to make. I made flattened balls of cookie dough and after baking I dipped them in yellow-orange icing and allowed them to dry. I then used a little icing to glue the yokes to the main cookie and then flooded the main cookie with white icing.

And voila... A sure fire way to get your kids to eat eggs!!!

TWD: White Loaves

Hello Tuesday! Tuesday with Dorie that is. Today is the start of a new baking adventure using the world famous book Baking with Julia. This week's TWD selection of White Loaves is brought to you by Laurie and Jules. You can find the recipe on Jules' blog.

So how did my loaves fare? Take a look...

Lovely, puffy, loaves. Loaves so full of yeast I feared they would take over my kitchen.

Just out of the oven. Can't you just smell the aroma of freshly baked bread?

Ah, bread. If it weren't for you I would still fit in my pants!
