Yesterday in the kitchen I filled and glazed Sacher Torte Cookies,
|Sacher Torte Cookies contain either raspberry or apricot jam under the chocolate glaze.|
|A little of everything; the tins to the left contain white chocolate snack mix|
Today I made a double batch of Cinnamon Pretzels (for kitchen gifts) and a huge slow cooker full of Hearty Butternut Squash Soup. This soup will sustain us for days, I think, which will be very helpful. Oh, and I also cut up apricots and covered them with a simple syrup to use in Golden Apricot Cakes tomorrow. There were many other things I had hoped to do, like make a batch of Heavenly Delight and a double batch of chocolate-dipped orange slices, and frost the already-baked Eggnog Logs. But we had a funeral to attend this afternoon (an hour away) and so the time slipped away from me. We may possibly try and make the fudge tonight. But likely not. It's already 7 pm, and 4:30 a.m. comes very quickly!
