Getting ready – 22 December

… otherwise known as the importance of ground cloves.

Moravian Christmas Cookies, made with a recipe from Winston-Salem, NC. Thank heavens Mom already did the math and reduced the amount of flour, molasses, etc. used (although I think I flubbed on the amount of spicing –> it really should be 1 Tbs each of ground ginger, cloves, and cinnamon. Kids, don’t try to make Christmas cookies after 9 PM after a full day of work.). So they’re subtly flavored, and not rolled thin enough. Next year, I’ll use the northern recipe. It’s a bit easier for me to handle. Christmas prep continues. Yes, there are socks that will not be done in time. (Cookie countdown: 2 varieties. Possibly 1 more to go, and the fast and easy Danish chocolates.)
