Baking day!

I know I mentioned this before but just before Christmas Whit and I took a day to do some baking (as in 4 recipes) and she also took all my photos for the Hope's post...remember these...
PS. Have you see her new arrivals - like this:
{I am so getting this for wedding season! But in coral!}
this is too cute:
and I SO want this - bright chevron - yes!
Her new additions never last long so if you want something you've gotta snatch it up real quick! :)

Ok back to baking...Justin wanted to take our photo - this takes some preparation...

So I know we won't be doing Christmas baking for a while but I thought I would share what we made:
Home made Cream Cheese mints
These were good - we put a little green food coloring in them and obviously forgot the step to smash them with a fork. Shoot. I think this was my job.

Pistachio Fudge
This was very tasty if you like pistachios (did you know it's vanilla and almond extract that give it the pistachio flavor!? I know, we were surprised too)

Homemade Turtles
These were so so so delicious. They were gone real quick.

Melting Moments cookies
These too were very tasty. They are sort of like a short bread but they just melt in your mouth and have icing and chocolate. How could they not be good?!

There we have it. And it's even more fun when you are baking with your bestie! And tasting your creations as you go! :)
