Baked with love

I was really busy yesterday getting a head start on my gift giving. I made shortbread with cherries on top and with sprinkles. Then I made three batches of biscotti - orange/chocolate, chai/cranberry and lemon/almond. The house smelled so good that I couldn't decide which one to eat. So what did I do? I had none. That's right. None! That's willpower or too tired to really enjoy any of it. 

Next week I am going to make up my gift bags. I also have a half a dozen cakes to make too. That'll be done in the next week or two. 

I should start taking orders but then that would take away the joy of baking and would make it feel like work.
