I somehow managed to cut Clue 5 (times 2!) in between laundry, wrapping presents, and making another batch of cookies.
These are Pfeffernusse Cookies. I had never eaten them before our hot chocolate party - a neighbor brought some and I loved them! So I found a recipe and made some. There are SO GOOD, full of spices, including black pepper, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. YUM! Holiday baking is now done. Shopping is done. Wrapping is DONE! I'm ready.
Now I have to draw diagonal lines on 800 little squares of fabric....
Merry Christmas Eve Ever!
