Advent Day Seventeen 2016

Saturday, December 17, 2016

Happy Saturday, My Lovelies!  Christmas Eve is one week away!  Next week we have so many fun things planned that I'm as excited as a little kid!   :)

Today's cookie isn't the prettiest one, but it might be my favorite as far as taste so far.  It's called the Finnish Log Cookie.  The recipe called for finely chopped almonds, but we decided to try pistachios instead because we had a lot of them in the pantry.  We also used almond and vanilla extract in the dough.

These cookies combine the perfect texture with the perfect flavor.

I cheated and looked ahead to tomorrow's cookie, and it requires a cookie press which I don't have. I'll probably recycle another post or make something else.

John 3:31-36

31 The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. 33 Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. 34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. 35 The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. 36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

Until next time...
