    My aunt has carried on the family tradition of decorating cookies-she invites all the cousins over, bakes a ton of sugar cookies and gingerbreads, and we have at it with icing and sprinkles and tiny candies. This year’s will be our last cookie day, as she’s moving to the Interior next year-I will miss it! Maybe even enough to take on the tradition myself :)

    I bake like crazy throughout December. I’m already trying to figure out what I can cut from my list this year and still be happy with the selection. I’ve done all the cookies but haven’t managed to decorate them yet (santa’s whiskers, shortbread, sugar cookies, spritz cookies & gingerbread). That peanut butter bar looks fantastic!! (But I’m not allowed to add to my list).

    Butter tarts! I remember those from my childhood in Canada. I recently found a little place in Edinburgh where I can get homemade Nanaimo bars. Just as well it isn’t open every day or I’d be the size of a house! Very tempted by the peanut butter bark. I’ll just send you my monthly gym membership fee?!

        You can get Nanaimo bars at Thinking Chocolate, 19 London Rd in Meadowbank. The owner is going to start making mint versions! Leave some for me!
