Happy Holidays

I hope everyone is having happy holidays.

Yesterday I made two things that I found out in blogland, to bring and share at family festivities. Pictured above are ginger crinkles and that recipe can be found at Wise Craft. They were very buttery and made 4 dozen, but even people who said they didn’t like ginger, liked the cookies.


And the inspiration and directions to make these candied citrus peels came¬† The Small Object. I used one orange, one grapefruit, one lemon and one lime. The picture makes the colors look a lot more vivid, but the truth is when they are boiled repeatedly the colors in the peels become more pale. We boiled them 3 times, according to the 3-5 times suggested, but if I do them again, I’ll probably boil them 5 times.

  1. I have never tried candied citrus peels before. They look yummy. And I am definitely going to make a batch of the ginger crinkles simply because who does not love a good crinkle?
