WHAT IS IT

A mystery.
What is this?
Answer tomorrow.
Tonight was our Relief Society's cookie exchange. I made the chocolate ones on the bottom row. They had to be baked and then topped with a mint candy. Supposedly it would melt and then you were supposed to swirl it around on top. I used Jr. Mints and they did not melt so they had to go back into the oven for two minutes. A lot of work when guess what? I could have opened a can of chocolate frosting or made some from scratch and it still would have been easier. I could have added a bit of mint extract, if I wanted the mint flavor. The cookie was very good. I'll put it on my cookbook blog in a day or two. The cutest ones were the turkey and the one next to mine, it is an acorn. It didn't photograph well. The same woman did both of them. Annette. She is Wonder Woman. And here is her post about them.

Every single cookie I have tasted so far has been a keeper.

And now, I hear them calling, "Yoo hoo! Come and get me."

Oh my.

I vote that the photo lookes like vanilla extract that you have put into something yummy, but not yet stirred up. And that's all.

Don't those all look so festive and delish! My guess to the mystery photo is vanilla poured into a recipe in the making. :)

Who made the little white cookies? I'm gonna need her address. Do you think she'll mind if I show up at her door with a Christmas tin?

The top shot is obviously the eye of a dinosaur who is peeking through the window licking his lips at the prospect of fresh cookies.

I have no idea what that it, but those cookies look delish.

I can't believe you have all those cookies left! We downed them in a couple of hours. Yours were delicious. They may have been a pain, but the mint flavor was just right. I'm anxiously awaiting the answer to your first question!
