While at Balleycanoe, Marty bought me this lovely red shortening tin. Love the graphic lettering. It looks right at home on top of my Hoosier.
Marty likes sugar cookies and I have made those for years. They never really turned my crank. Then I found these! These little sugar cookies are spiked with brandy, five spice powder and cherries. Now that's a sugar cookie!
Marty also loves his mince tarts. So, every year I make a bunch. These are small ones. It is my hope that it will take him and the boys a little longer to eat through them all. I can hope anyway.
I've had this old shortening package for a very long time. Definitely from the fifties or sixties. Those colours!
I hope that you aren't still running around too much and have a quiet moment to sit and relax with a little hot beverage and some light reading. Time recharge before the guests arrive and the turkey needs to be tucked into the oven, etc. Have a lovely day!
