Christmas Baking.....

Christmas Eve is almost over here in Australia. Everything is ready to celebrate Christmas with our family.

I have enjoyed some time in the afternoons doing some special baking. I made the fruit cake a few weeks ago now and have been enjoying it this week.

These are some delicious Almond Butter Balls - they just melt in your mouth - YUM!


I have never had much success with roll out biscuits, but was determined to have another go at making some. I found yet another recipe on a blog somewhere ?! . It worked out really well.



The biscuit mixture rolled out beautifully and cooked to perfection.


The fun part was of course the decorating.



The gifts are under the tree and the desserts that I was asked to provide have been made.
I am off to bed for a blissful sleep.
Christmas Blessings to all.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I like you have terrible trouble with roll out biscuits, they always seem to stick to the rolling pin.

Happy new year Leisa, thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog, you added a little bit of sparkle to my day.
I really enjoyed the little bit of hand embroidery I did on the quilt. So much so that I'm going to do some more.
Lovely blog by the way, love Fi x
