Come Play in the SNOW

It's snowing!!! So if your one of those ladies who keeps telling me you want to come to a retreat in the snow NOW is the time! Come drink hot chocolate and relax by the fire. What a great way to start the New Year and to help you get started don't forget we are giving you THURSDAY FREE if you visit us on Jan. 1-4. That is an extra 24 hours of crop time!

It's raining out in Oxnard today. I love the rain! I really miss my convertible when it rains. I know that sounds funny but I loved to go to the beach and sit and listen to the rail hit the cloth top. I would be the only one at the was so peaceful and relaxing. The other thing I like to do in the rain is Bake so today I'm going to make my favorite Christmas cookies. I can't make these to early they don't last long!


Cookie Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups flour
1/3 cup whipping cream


1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 drop red food coloring to desired color

Mix cookie ingredients together,chill dough.Roll dough 1/8-inch thick. Cut out 1 1/2 inch circle I use small shape cookie cutters for a special look. Transfer to sugar covered wax paper. Coat both sides. Prick cookies with a fork. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 7 to 9 minutes at 350 degrees.

Mix together ingredients for filling during this time, and when cookies are cooled place filling between 2 cookies and enjoy!

Hi Bonnie Lou! I love to hear from you, blog-style. It's almost as much fun as hanging out with you and Mark in PJ's and trying to embarrass Mark! Merry Christmas to you both.
