Didja miss me?

The past 4 weeks have been a blur of pain and suffering. Woe is me! You get the idea. Enough! Let's get on with the show!

Time to play! Here, for your amusement, are some little Christmas cats in Ugly Christmas Sweaters!!

Not my usual shortbread cookies. No. These are Molasses Ginger Shortbread Cookies. The recipe comes courtesy of Crosby's Molasses. They taste great AND they smell divine AND they're super easy, if you make them in your food processor. Dry ingredients in first. Buzz to cut in the fat. I used shortening. Then, drizzle in the molasses, and buzz again to form a ball. Simple! I couldn't resist making a hole to thread ribbon for hanging.

Now, just in case you receive a gift from Grandma Coco this year, please have a look at this post from a few years ago. It's still rings true.


  1. I am having a hard time seeing the ugly in those sweaters. They all look adorable! I am sure they will look delightful on the tree, or anywhere else.

  2. Four weeks doesn't sound at all like fun, hope you are on the mend well and truly. Love those sweaters, or jumpers as we call them down here . And when anyone sees them, do you think as tree decorations they will last long up there? Yummy.

  3. Sorry to hear about your pain & suffering and glad to hear you are on the mend. CUTE cookies :)

  4. I hope you are fully healed by Christmas. These cookies are a very cute idea and you did a great job on them.
