Christmas Cookies

It’s Christmas!  And all the stockings are hung on the chimney with care in hopes that Santa Claus soon will be here!  I love hearing that story – I grew up every Christmas Eve, my uncle would read Twas ‘The Night Before Christmas‘ with all of us gathered around, waiting for Santa to hurry up and come, then we got to open presents from him to get Christmas started! You might laugh, but my brother and I will sing along to Hilary Duff and Lil’ Romeo’s (rap) song to ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_GPF3elJHY) – I love it and it makes me so proud that he knows that song and sings it with me:)  I’m sorry but, he just is a great brother and I love him, am so thankful for him and just wish he was here with me and others who love him so much and think so much of him, this Christmas.  He just needs to believe in himself and so do you and so do I:)  So come on over and lets dance and sing and get some Christmas Cookies ready, because you know what Santa loves….?

Snowballs

It’s snowing!  Okay, maybe it’s not literally snowing in the hot Christmas South, but we can make it snow with these buttery melt-in-your mouth winter white Snowballs!  

These balls of white powder are shortbread-like cookies that make Christmas time, in my house, extra special.  You need a little sparkle of glittering snow on your Christmas table, making eyes wide with awe and excitement!

Snowballs

I’m warning you, they are messy, but so worth it!  If you make them small enough you can just pop them in your mouth without getting the powdered sugar everywhere, but that’s just hopeful thinking.  These cookies are made to make a little snow dusting.  You can keep popping them in your mouth,though, enjoying every bite of their buttery sweet texture that will just melt in your mouth.  If you don’t usually moan with an excited yumminess moan when you take a bite of something, you will when you take your first bite of these Snowballs.  I should call these Excited Moaning Snowballs because every time I make them, it seems like everyone just moans and does that ‘oh this is so good’ eye roll, especially my family members.  It’s kind of quite humorous:)
Come on over and get ready for a snowball fight as we mix and roll and get powdery white with this Christmas favorite and let Summie’s Yummies Sweet (and Snowy) Deliveries bring merriment and joy to your Christmas celebrations!:)  Merry Christmas!!!

Buttery Paleo Shortbread

‘Let your gentle spirit be known to all men.  The Lord is near. (Philippians 4:5)

I thought I’d take a little break from all the coffee cakes, muffins, cookies and chocolates I’ve been perfecting for the opening of the store…which is just around the corner and make some Buttery Paleo Shortbread cookies!

Buttery Paleo Shortbread

I’ve been busy working on making the stores yummies perfect, I’m getting there, still think a lot could be perfected (but that’s me), but I’m getting there.  The opening is so soon and I am super excited, but nervous, too.  I want to do well. I want the owners, my bosses, who I really like, to feel good about what I am producing, which they do but then I have that fear of not doing good enough or being enough.  It’s definitely a joy to get in the kitchen and bake and I am so blessed to have a job that allows me to do that. Come on over and let’s take a break together with some Buttery Paleo Shortbread. 🙂 Continue reading →
