Happy Holidays

I have always loved silver dragees.  Nowadays, you can find them in all sizes and colors, but for some reason, I have a hard time finding the silver ones.  The last bottle I bought said something about them not being edible.  What?  What are you supposed to do with them?  Spit them out?  Ridiculous. 
This year my middle daughter is selling decorated sugar cookies on her facebook page.  I'm glad this tradition of iced sugar cookies will go on.  

Happiest holidays!


  1. My boss' wife bakes iced sugar cookins for our office party every year... They are melt in your mouth delicious! Wishing you a blessed holiday season. Hugs. Dixie

    1. Dear Dixie, hope your's is blessed too. I've ordered a Mrs. Santa Claus outfit to wear Christmas Eve for the grandkids. Can't wait to see their faces.
