Baking update: I have completed some baking and feeling less pressure now that the list is dwindling. The mince meat tarts are done and sitting happily in the freezer waiting for xmas day. The sticky pudding is ready and turned out really well. This was the first time I made it and it was pretty simple although their were many steps involved. The toffee sauce to accompany the sticky pudding is ready to go and awaiting hungry mouths.
The cranberry orange biscuit dessert is ready and frozen. On Christmas day it will be thawed out and topped with icing sugar sauce. The dessert is kind of like sticky buns all rolled up and baked together. Really cool.
All that is left is short bread, sausage rolls and my cookie exchange recipe which I hope to have completed this week. Custard will be made on Christmas day so it is fresh and can be topped on the sticky pudding… Yummy!
My baking list is getting shorter!
I have started my list, my things to cook or bake list.
Here is so far what is on the list:
- Sausage rolls
- mince meat tarts
- shortbread cookies
- cookie balls for the cookie exchange
- millionaire shortbread squares
- sticky pudding
- cranberry orange biscuit dessert
I am sure my list will grow, but for now this is a start. I will make what I can ahead of time and freeze and then pull out when needed.
Have you started your baking yet?
