Advent Day Eleven 2016

Happy Sunday, My Lovelies!

Today's cookie was a bit more complicated to bake.  You know the black and white cookies you see at The Fresh Market?  More like a tiny cake than a cookie?  Well then you're more than familiar with today's cookie: Small Black and Whites.  Now I know why I've aways bought them rather than baked them.

The cookies are more like tiny little teacakes with two types of icing, baked with cake flour.  They taste okay, but they were difficult to make and get the icing at the right consistency so it would run a little bit, yet not run all over the cookie.

James 5:7-10

5:7 Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.

5:8 You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.

5:9 Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors!

5:10 As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

Until next time...

Ricki Jill
