Real Baking

Ahhh…the day before Thanksgiving is always full of baking around here.  We are usually assigned to bring desserts to the family Thanksgiving celebration, so to work we go. 

Our first step was that we needed to decide what to make.  We had a package of Sugar Cookie mix in the pantry, so we decided that was a no brainer.  Usually, we bake from scratch, but since we’d be doing a bit of baking, we figured one mix wouldn’t hurt. 🙂

So, Sugar cookies from a mix, chocolate chip cookies from scratch, and then the kids decided we needed to have marble cake for Thanksgiving.  You know…remniscent of the marble cake with vanilla frosting that Squanto made for the Pilgrims on that first Thanksgiving of yore.

Once those decisions were made, it was time to wash our hands and get to work.

The end result?  Chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, and the traditional marble cake with vanilla frosting.

We’re also bringing dinner rolls and garlic mushrooms, but those aren’t half as fun to make. 🙂

Here’s hoping that you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are surrounded by those you love most in the world.
