well here we are again Christmas 🎄 and covid. This time with a side of alfajores on a fish plate. Do you have a favorite Christmas cookie or cookies? As long as the flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar keep flowing- I will be baking Christmas cookies, might even slide over the December 25 cutoff and into January this year.
We moved in October. After a week long getaway to Bandon Dunes, Oregon. We came back to a new one level, slightly smaller inside and outside new to us home in our same town of Novato. I think we have electricity gremlins though. I'm ready to invite my electrician to Christmas dinner since he's here every week. The latest problem a doorbell chime that almost melted down after continuous buzzing for a day, he's looking for a short in our wiring-don't like the sound of that. He found it and fixed it, hoorah.
We have a ton of unpacked boxes in our new big white garage. My husband Scott ordered a backyard studio shed for his home office and once he's in there we will finish putting our house together. I need a bookcase for all my cookbooks and a small desk in the small bedroom that Scott works in now, but it's difficult for me to see myself in that front room until he moves into his studio shed. Soon, everything will come together in a few months.
I hereby revive this blog by sharing a recipe that I enjoy so here is a small batch recipe from a friend for alfajores, enough for you and a friend.
