The kindergarten party - checked!



These are the cookie platters we took to Christmass party at my daughter's kindergarten yesterday. She was so proud of her mom's work because her "mom is the best cook and baker ever" [blush, blush].
I was glad the 3-day-baking session, with 10 different types of cookies baked, was over (sure I didn't take everything there, it would have been too much, but wanted to have a variety of choice).
What made me sad and pretty angry, though, was seeing how easy most other parents took it, bringing thousand bags of potato chips and pop corn. I'm sure you're guessing what kids ate :(((( I try real hard to keep my kids away from unhealthy eating habbits and this is what I get. At least it's only once a year.

The happiest moment for kids, of course, was when Santa arrived. They sang, they laughed and were so excited.

I suppose you're wondering what was on my cookie platters?

One - inevitable, always requested, and my favourite Orange Blossom Cookies (it's an old picture, they were gone before I could dress them in Christmas clothes)

Two - crunchy, caramel pleasure, Caramel Filled Cookies (with chocolate caramels this time)

Three - chocolatey, snowy, perfectly Christmass-y cookies, Chocolate Crinkles

Four - more chocolate, why not?, Chocolate Amaretti

Five - something delicate and fragrant, Citrus Scented Crescent Cookies

Six - another simple and orange scented cookie, White Chocolate and Orange Glazed Cookies

Seven - soft and delicious, my husband's favourite, Cream Cheese Bells

Eight - their name says it all, Melting Moments (went for the classical form this time)

Nine - a Christmass recipe from Finland, Finnish Sticks (Suomalaiset Puikot)

Ten - last thing baked and not even photographed, but deliciously creamy, with very delicate cinnamon scent (definitely making them again), Cinnamon Rosettes
