My pie making skills are slowly getting better. I’m still trying out different kinds of crusts and filling. I still haven’t got the skill of making the crust beautiful and crimped yet but at least they are starting to turn out crisp and less doughy.
My mom used to make batches of fudge every Christmas along with tons of Christmas cookies. She’d spend one day making everything and put the boxes of cookies in the freezer to keep us going all month long. We used to play family games at night and have milk and cookies. For some reason I haven’t made fudge very often!

I’m finally getting some Christmas baking underway. Alex complained to me the other day that he was sick of pumpkin. I kept making pumpkin pie and pumpkin spaghetti for dinner :-p I told him that was impossible but I would make him something more Christmassey.

I have a habit of making untested recipes for holidays. Sometimes it works out great and often times they only turn out so so! My family aren’t very picky though. As long as it’s edible they’re happy I’ve made these cookies before but tried making them square (by using a ziploc bag). Only about three (the ones in the picture) came perfect. The rest look like trapezoids.

I made a variety of desserts for Thanksgiving this year. I drove down to Knoxville for the weekend and made a few things in advance. I took the opportunity to make something loaded with whole milk and cream since it was going to be more than just me and Alex this year.
