These are the large ones. I almost missed getting them in the picture in an attempt to get the cookie jar in it. This is a McCoy cookie jar, and was given to me by my Grandfather the first year after I was married. It's about 40 years old.
How much do you think my kids will get for it on Ebay after I'm gone?
It's one of my treasured possessions. Don't remember if it ever had a cookie in it.
These are the finished product. Just as we were frosting them, Princess#2 informed me she doesn't like chocolate.
Oh well, maybe someone will eat them.
I used a box cake mix, but made the frosting with chocolate chips, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and a little bit of milk. We pipped it on, Princess#2 and I. I squeezed the bag and she guided it.
Today, we are off to buy peaches. I've been wanting to make peach preserves ever since I saw the apricot preserves Suzanne over at Chickens in the Road made.
But I had to wait until they got ripe here in our area. And they are now ready and have been in harvest mode for about a week. This, however is my first chance to go get some. Hopefully, I'll have pictures of that tomorrow.
Hopefully, they will turn out. It's been a while since I've made any jelly or jam or preserves. Maybe I haven't lost my touch.
What are you doing that you haven't done in a while? Seems like the fuel crunch is making all of us go back to doing some things we didn't think we'd do again. I sure hope I don't have to go back to picking cotton. That would really be a bummer.
Hope you have a fabulous Friday. Love one another.
