|Proud to present my cookie jars~!|
It was not an idea to bake for Christmas. And I do not enjoy making cookies. It was tedious and messy. I do not like to have my hands oily with butter, don't like the mess of having flour sifted out of the mixing bowl and I will feel demoralized if the cookies fail to turn out perfect. Let's blame the Internet connection. It was so bad that it even refused to load up. The baby dinosaur on the computer screen didn't appear but a sad face like that logo of RHB bank appeared instead. It's my off day and I just sat there, not knowing what to do. I just planned to do up my blog posts and post up my photos as I need to delete them off from my hard drive. I switched on the paid channels of Astro and not one programme caught my attention. I wanted to stitch but due to old age, my back aches when I sit stitching too long. So, I flipped through the recipe books and started jotting down what to do. I have a whole long list of things that I want to bake.

|That delicious almond teddy with Gouda....|
|The yummy cheesy cookies with Camembert....|
I like this snowflake design but if that Christmas tree turned out well, I would be happy, too. Looks like the Christmas tree is never meant to be. I'm not done yet~!
|The not-so-delicious walnut chocolate bunny cookies....|
|The cookie makers....|
When I chose what to bake, I only read the ingredients' section. I totally missed out on the methods. From having nothing to do, I just sacrificed my beauty sleep on that day. I have totally forgotten that there's only one oven in the kitchen and all these need to be baked. The trays were queuing up silently on the table.
|That blueberry cheese bread...|
How did the cream cheese on top went into the mid-section? I'm baffled....
