Sadly, my mom, dad, and two sisters who were visting from Iowa left this morning. They stayed with us for Christmas for the past week. It is always difficult to leave them and I have been dubbed "Water Works" because of it. I can't turn the tears off once they begin. I love them to the very core of me and it is always hard to say goodbye until next time. Anyways, I was grateful for all of the baking I was able to do while they were here.
Of course you all know how much I enjoyed being able to bake for my family. I start making a list in my head before I see them of the things I want them to try. I wasn't able to take photos of everything I made this past week but these are the ones I did capture. I think the chocolate chips coffee cake was the biggest hit. The cookies were baked for my family to enjoy during the drive back to Iowa.
The chocolate cookie cheesecake is a staple, I always make this when I am with my family as well as my peanut butter pie which I wasn't able to take a photo of.
I also made some smooth brownie cookie dipped into white chocolate.
For those who did some holiday baking, what did you make that was the biggest hit among your friends and family?
