I'm baking these cookies for the upteenth time - I've lost count:
Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thomas Keller (I reduce the sugar slightly in the dough, and use all semi-sweet chopped chocolate):

Very nice Sarah! Love your decorations!

I just made another 4 dozen peanut clusters (not really baking) for DH to replace the ones I accidentally gave out as the regular kind.

Next I will be baking some more chocolate spritz cookies and some almond cherry balls. I am hoping to get another batch of "Almond Roca" done as well for my gift packages.

I also want to make the eggnog pastry cream in case it needs tweeking for tomorrow's take on IHOP's Eggnog pancakes. Again, not really baking but wonderful sweet smells.

I may even make my mandarin orange upside down cupcakes (gluten free and regular) for tomorrow's dessert. They will be served with whipped cream/Cool whip and another pastry cream I have experimented with using a coconut cream base.

I will trade you some almond roca and mandarin orange upside down cake for some chocolate tart!

Oh, almost forgot I have to make and blind bake some gluten free pastry for DH's tourtiere.

Just popped one of these into the fridge! I can hardly stand it ~ I so want to dip a fork into it.
