If you enjoy yeasted cookies, check out Czech Kolaches. These take a little longer to make as you need to wait for the dough to rise but

  1. OK, I’ve been out of touch and totally missed these cookies before Christmas!! I can still make them, right??! I really want to try the Buckeyes!! I’m a huge peanut butter fan– and with chocolate, all the better. They look great! And how was your Christmas Kat?? Was it snowy?? Our kids in Wisconsin said their snow came right after Christmas! Did you travel to be with any family or were you home? Were you the cook??! We made a quick trip to SF to have an early Christmas with our Aaron and Jessica and kids. Then our other kids came in for Christmas at our house. It’s a squeeze with 11 of us in our little house, and we had a sick unhappy baby, but there were some really sweet moments and I loved watching the little cousins playing together. OK, wonder how your are doing– hugs hugs Kat? P.S. are you on Instagram??
