My 12 days of cookies remind me every year that it’s that time to watch Love Actually, The Holiday, and Elf. Those three movies are on my must list for every Christmas. Do you have any favorites that you love? I’m also looking forward to New Years Eve, which comes out December 9th. The whole month of December should be dedicated to Christmas movies, cuddling, and eating baked goods. Bears get to hibernate, why don’t we?
Day 5 of my 12 days of cookies: If you’ve been following my past 12 days of cookies, then you must know that it’s never 12 days of cookies; there’s always a bar or two thrown into the mix. Bars are just as good as cookies since they’re easy to eat, not a hassle to serve, and a cinch to whip up.
These toffee blondies disappeared the moment I took them out of the oven. I cut them into small pieces so that I could feed more people. It was fine since the bars were so dense to begin with. One small serving is enough to satisfy the average person’s sweet tooth. Note that I said average… for those like me who crave sweets 24 hours a day, you can handle more than a little sliver. Recipe is ever so slightly adapted from Just a Taste.
