It's the hap-happiest season of all

It's the most wonderful time of the year – for it is cheese straw baking time. And it is much more fun to have a partner to bake with. This afternoon Maggie and I made up the first batches of cheese straws that we'll share with family and friends this Christmas season. What a fun – and productive – way to spend the afternoon, especially since Maggie did most of the hard work of piping the cheesy batter onto the baking trays.

Once the golden squiggles cooled, I packed them into tins and mason jars.

And then added twine and tags.

Here's a look at the final gift.

And, the best part, Maggie did the dishes.

Now, when Mary comes home this weekend, I bet I can get her to help me with Batch #2.
