A party!

Heather Pearson invited me to join her virtual Christmas Party! Sounds like fun! Grandma Coco has definite ideas about Christmas, so ours is not the typical Canadian holiday.  Like Scrooge, we keep Christmas in our own way. One big part of Christmas in the Kingdom is cookies, and cookies are for sharing.

Here's a sampling of this year's offerings:





And here are some gift boxes of cookies that my friend Amanda and I made to sell for the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project. We folded the boxes ourselves out of bristol board, and covered them with cellophane. It turned out to be a good fundraiser.


Since most of my cookies are used for fundraising for the cat group, cats are often the subjects. Here are some cats in ugly Christmas sweaters. My version of gingerbread men.


Too bad I couldn't offer you an actual cookie, because they taste pretty good. These cats were made from a recipe that Crosby's Molasses offered. Molasses Ginger shortbread cookies. You can find that recipe here:  http://www.crosbys.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Crosbys-The-Holiday-Book-2015.pdf

You can visit Heather's other guests here: http://www.heatherpearson.com/2015/12/needlework-tuesdays-online-christmas.html and you can join the party by posting on her page, too. Thanks for inviting me, Heather!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

  1. Thanks for attending my online Christmas Party. The cookies your brought are wonderful. I`ll keep them in mind when I am decorating my gingerbread zombies. Some of them will be wearing ugly sweaters, even zombies get cold. I adore the cats in the trees. wow.

    I buy that same brand of molasses but didn`t think to check their website for recipes. Good suggestion.

    Merry Christmas in the Kingdom of Coco. Best to you and your family.
