OMGosh! Stunning, stunning and stunning! The guests must be stunned at your creativity as well!

If you were at our Christmas party, you would blow my family’s mind. They were thrilled by a simple bundt pan.
 
Merry Christmas Prettycake!

Thank u Flour Girl
I always make a lot more than what I expect my guests can eat because i let them take home a lot of it and they are always happy to take home goodies, even with ham, veggies, fruits and everything else.

Merry Christmas to u too Flour girl. May u have many more blessed and happy Christmases.

Every year, this is the time where I am more than happy to do all cooking and baking and it is totally worth it, esp when friends and family come over.

Prettycake - I would like to know where you sourced the recipe for the Rainbow Cookies?? I have Sherry Yard’s book - but her recipe for them has an inordinately large amount of Butter (1 1/2 POUNDS!) - with 1 1/2 c sugar, 12 oz almond paste and only 3 c. flour. I am reluctant to make that recipe in case it was a misprint. Rose doesn’t have them in her cookie book. But I am really anxious to try them this year! Please help!!

1 1/2 tsp. Almond xtract
Apricot jam
6 oz semi sweet chocolate

Beat eggwhites + 1/2 C sugar and put aside.

Thanks a million!! I think this is just like the one on Epicurious, and almost exactly the same proportions as the first one I made years ago - which is half the size of Sherry’s…. except for the butter! tongue laugh I will have to write the publisher sometime and see if that isn’t a misprint! Merry Christmas 2016 to you!
