In fact, I've been going through so many supplies, I've started buying in bulk - 10 pound bags of sugar and flour instead of 5 pound bags. Weirdly, in most grocery stores, a 10 pound bag of sugar costs MORE than two 5 pound bags. I totally don't understand this.
Anyway, so far this week, I've made eleven dozen cookies (chocolate chip, oatmeal-cranberry-raisin, and triple chocolate threat), Venetians, brownies, lemon bars (see previous post), toffee bars, and rugelach. That's a lot of sugar. C&H also has some great ideas on their site for holiday baking: holiday cookies, edible ornaments, hot drink mixes, and even sugar scrubs (!) - in case I didn't have enough commissioned baking to do!
Here are some pics of the spoils. I made four trays, each of which looked generally like this, for a holiday gift boutique.
I also isolated pictures of each item. Venetians:Cranberry-pecan rugelach:
And brownies, which came out unusually fudgy and with weird pockmarks on the top, so I sprinkled them with powdered sugar (shh!):
Thanks, C&H! While I occasionally cheat on you with store-brand granulated sugar, you are the only brand of brown sugar and powdered sugar I use!
