Brownie Snowflake Pops-Shortbread Cookies-Prizzelle's

The baking still continues for me...lots of orders to fill which has been so fun! Tonight as I was baking I was thinking of those who this time of year might not be so "merry". There's people who have lost a loved one this year or in December or in years past, some may be less fortunate, some don't have jobs, some don't have families or some other circumstance. I just wanted to take some time tonight to pray for those friends or for those I know that this time of year is difficult for them. Praying for strength, peace and joy during this holiday season! Grateful to God for all that He does for us...
2 Corinthians 12:9
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness"

Hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas and New Years!

Pizzelle's

I love pizzelle's! If you've never tried one you should! They are an Italian pastry that is delicate and light.  You need a pizzelle machine in order to make these. My mom has had one of these machines for years and only would make them 1 time of year and I always looked forward to having them. You can purchase one of these machine's @ Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl's or online.

1 3/4 c flour
3 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tsp. baking powder

Melt butter mix all ingredients together. Heat Iron. Spray it before using it so the pizzelle's won't stick. Drop a tablespoon on iron and cook for 20-45 seconds depending on iron. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or decorate.
