Today was my first day off for Christmas break from college. I have five weeks off, wow!
Today was a lazy type of day. I slept in, worked out, and then spent the rest of the afternoon baking.
I first made oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. Going with the classics.
Afterwards, I made Mincemeat bite-sized pies. The aroma coming from the kitchen is fantastic. To make these bite-sized pies, roll out regular dough you’d use to make a pie. I took the top of a jar and make circles to fill in the dips of a cupcake pan. I filled in each dip with a layer of dough then put a Mincemeat mixture in it. To finish it off, put a thin piece of dough to cover it. Cutting a tiny slash in the top will let some of the heat out and help give it the pie look!
If anyone has any cool recipes to try, let me know!
