Friday Edition: Yummy Finds

It is finally feeling like December around here.  For the past few weeks it has been very mild weather - in the 50's and 60's - and mostly sunny.  That certainly doesn't feel like Christmas to me!  But thankfully it started to get cold yesterday.  Just in time for the Husband and I to take the Toddler ice skating outside for the first time tomorrow.  Wish us luck!

Besides ice skating, I am going to be planning out what cookies I need to make for a cookie exchange party and to give to Santa.  Any suggestions?  I found the following, which look really yummy!

Oh Martha!  Love you!  And I love these "cookies".  So pretty and perfect.  And they have my favorite combo: chocolate and peppermint!  Check out the recipe here.
Yummy Find No. 2: Santa Madeleines by Better Homes and Gardens

How cute are these cookies?  I think the best part of these cookies is that you can get store-bought madeleines and then decorate them the way you want them!  Genius.  Or you can make your own - here's the recipe.
Have a cookie recipe you want to share?  I would love to feature it!  Send me an email at actfastchef [@] hotmail [.com] and let me know.


  1. Those peppermint meringues look beautiful. Wow. Love them.

  2. Aww, the santa madelines are adorable! I so want to make some of these this Christmas. I tried to make a gingerbread house before but my brother ate some of it before I could assemble it!
