It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas

galettesWith the temperatures here hitting 80 degrees a couple of days in a row, it sure doesn’t feel much like Christmas. But with my mother entering full-on baking mode, it sure smells good around here. This morning she made some Galettes, which I believe are the Best Cookies in the World. I mean with the primary ingredients being sugar, butter, and eggs, how can you go wrong?

Besides the galettes, she’s making Russian Tea Cakes, homemade Reese’s Cups, and something German that I can’t spell (but I can surely eat).
