Do you???

Do you bake for the holidays?

Over the next few days I'll be starting to bake...and by bake I mean I"ll be churing out about 10 to 15 sour pound cakes and they all need to be done before December 24th.  I've been making this recipe for over 20 years and giving them as gifts and I only make them at Christmas time...last year I only did 8...I have a little longer list this year so there will be double cake days happening shortly.

My friend Karen shared a recipe on her blog of one dough that will make seven it looks like I'll be making cookies this coming weekend along with a few pound cakes.

Okay...who's gonna share first???

Until Next Time
