WIAW: What I’ve been Baking

So you know what happens when you go home for break?

You get sucked into the vortex of laziness. Yes, I’ve been productive cleaning my room out, watching t.v., and exercising but blogging has not been happening. Maybe it’s because I’m not doing anything interesting?

This weekend was Cookie Baking Extravaganza 2012 (not a thing but I just made it one). It also turned into Cookie Eating Extravaganza 2012 so instead of a normal WIAW- it’s the cookie edition.

Thanks to Jenn for hosting! Here are my not so healthy eats treats of late.

Peanut Butter Blossoms and Molasses cookies:

My dad is a huge fan of both the blossoms and molasses cookies. I enjoy the molasses for the spicy bite and the blossoms are always a favorite.

Snickerdoodles:

Fluffy and cinnamony.

Pineapple cookies:

For some reason, I always associate Pineapple with Christmas time. Yes, I know it’s a very summery fruit and it definitely makes me think of warmer weather but it is also reminiscent of the holidays for me. My best guess is because of these cookies or that we occasionally have pineapple on Christmas morning. But def a fav for the moist but sweet taste.

Sugar cookies:

Of course we made these. And this is the best batch ever.

Baklava:

Maybe not a Christmas cookie but I spent yesterday learning how to make these from my Greek uncle and they’re a treat!

Any holiday treats for you?

Happy Wednesday!
