vanilla sugar twist cookies

Let me tell you about these little cookies. I first saw a picture of them and thought ooh, I want those in my belly.

Being the ingredient list called for nothing I don’t keep on hand, a plus, I set right out to make them.

I mix and chilled and rolled about my dough. Measured and folded and the dogs started to take notice as they always do when kitchen adventures are in full swing.

Happy Friday Folks!

jelly donuts 2

I’ve shaken off this winter funk folks!

Sure there is a Blizzard headed this way but I embrace it.  What choice do I have?

We have our supplies.  I have my gin.  I bought flowers to make me smile.  All good here.

Do you know what turned my curmudgeonly ways around?  Do you know what caused Larry and I not to flee south and start a new life?

Jelly Donuts.  Say it with me folks, Jelly Donuts. Sure this salad helped but this here donut helped more.

It was so perfect, just what a gal needs to lift her spirits.  I even made it with the last of my homemade jam.  Yay homemade jam!  I had sweet thoughts of summer and the daydreaming of this years canning have begun while it snows all around us.
